Yotel new openings bonanza

Seven new hotels in key business destinations are being opened this year by Yotel, which claims to offer guests “a new experience with everything you need and nothing you don't”.

The company offers what CEO Hubert Viriot calls cutting-edge design to create small “cabins" for guests who appreciate quality but don't need the fuss of a traditional luxury hotel.

This year’s UK openings include London Clerkenwell in the first quarter, Edinburgh in Q3 and Glasgow in Q4. Also imminent along with Clerkenwell are properties at Istanbul New Airport and Yotel San Francisco, the chain’s first US West Coast hotel.

Next in line are Singapore Changi Airport – Asia’s first “YotelAir” – this spring, and a riverside property at Amsterdam Noord (below), 5min by water taxi from the city centre and scheduled for next winter.

Viriot noted the openings showed Yotel was keeping up its “unprecedented rate of expansion across the globe” it had begun over the last 12 months.

“As with all our existing hotels, we will integrate our signature technology elements and individually curated and designed public spaces into our new hotels and we look forward to partnering with the local communities in doing so.”
