Yotel | Airport Hotel

The Yotel is a new concept hotel, inspired by the existing capsule hotels in Japan. This concept was created by Simon Woodroffe, whose idea was to create cabins with the comfort of a luxury hotel, but with an affordable price. The Yotel offers small rooms but comfortable and modern. The beds are of reasonable size and transform into couches at the touch of a button. All rooms have access to free wireless internet, fully equipped bathroom, desk and tv. The Yotel targets customers with several hours of waiting between flights, the minimum stay required is only four hours. Reservations are made online and check-in is done on interactive multimedia kiosks at the airport. You can book for London and Amsterdam airports, more should be available soon.
