Chototel is set to bring a 'super-budget' hotel to the UAE as part of its next phase of development, Hotelier Middle East reported. 

The budget-friendly hotel provider uses a construction technology called light gauge steel framing, which minimises its carbon footprint by using a method that eliminates the use of bricks and wood as raw materials. 

With insulated walls integrated in the building design, thermal conductivity is bettered, leading to a reduction in the need for heating or cooling infrastructure, thereby saving energy.

Chototel uses technologies such as steel-frame dry construction, closed-loop, off-grid utility systems; microbots and big data processing to manage unmanned operations and billing; and real-time financial and cash technologies.

Each room is 280 sqft and includes a 30 sqft pantry, 30sqft bathroom and 100sqft multipurpose room with a cupboard, study/dining area and a sofa-cum-bed.

The UK-based technology start-up is set to pilot a 240-room hotel in Nagothane on the Mumbai-Goa highway in July.

Following this, Chototel will begin focusing on developments in the UAE, UK and Nigeria.
