How many times have you groaned at long transits between your flights and wish there was somewhere you could go while waiting without paying an arm and a leg?
Well, thanks to the people behind Yo! Sushi, there is now an interesting and affordable option to wait out long transits in the form of Yotel. Read on about Yotel’s unique accommodation concept below!
What is Yotel?
Yotel is an innovative accommodation concept modelled after luxury airline travel and Japanese capsule hotels to provide affordable and comfortable accommodation for travellers in transit or brief overnight airport stays. Currently, Yotel is available at London Heathrow Airport Terminal 4, London Gatwick Airport South Terminal and Amsterdam Schiphol airports.
What Are Yotel Cabins Like?
Yotel offers a variety of cabins for different prices – premium cabins, standard cabins, twin cabins and specially designed cabins for those requiring wheelchair access.
Each standard little capsule is comfortably decorated with comfortable luxury bedding, hot water showers, working desk, free internet access, soft cosy lighting and a flat screen TV. Premium cabins come equipped like first class seats where beds recline with a touch of a button, overhead rain shower and all little touches you can expect to find in a 4-star hotel room. Yotel cabins provide a nice little haven of sanctuary and peace in a busy airport!
How Much Do Yotel Cabins Cost?
Yotel cabins can be booked online or in their check-in kiosks available at selected airports. Bookings are available for a minimum of 4 hours and start at booking from as little as £40 for a premium or Twin cabin and £25 for a standard cabin at YOTEL Gatwick & YOTEL Heathrow. Prices at YOTEL Schiphol are also based on a minimum price for a four hour booking from as little as €60 for a premium or Twin cabin and €35 for a standard cabin. The prices per hour thereafter are from as little as £6.50 at YOTEL Gatwick & YOTEL Heathrow and from €8 at YOTEL Schiphol per hour in a standard cabin.
So if you are looking for an affordable and good way to spend your transit hours without booking an overpriced and miserable day room, try Yotel!
