Loan a lumie

Travelling can have a significant impact on your sleep pattern, which is why we've partnered with light therapy experts Lumie, so you can borrow your best night's sleep.

Loan a Lumie light for free during your stay at YOTEL Edinburgh to help regulate sleep cycles and boost your mood and energy. Lumie mimics the natural rising and setting of the sun, so you'll wind down gently and wake up gradually and effectively.

Subject to availability, just ask at Mission Control.
