YOTEL EXPERIMENTS WITH USE OF DRONES IN AMSTERDAM
October 2019, Amsterdam – Had enough of being served by a bartender in a bad mood? Or enough of waiting too long for your order to arrive? Well soon you could be served your dinner by drone, as today YOTEL, a revolutionary new hotel opening in Amsterdam Noord, tested drone led table service.
YOTEL Amsterdam Noord, the hotel for smart, tech-savvy travellers, is investigating employing drone waiters to deliver food and drink orders to guests at its canal-side restaurant and bar, KOMYUNITI. In response to the shortage of hospitality staff in the city, testing will explore if drone waiters could support the efficient and successful running of its restaurant floor.
“Redefining the hospitality industry through smart technology is what YOTEL is all about. Our drone waiter service test today is just part of how we are embracing innovation to provide extraordinary and fun experiences to our guests,” said Joy Maroulás, General Manager at YOTEL Amsterdam Noord.
“The idea is to employ drones to fly food and drink to tables during busy periods to save our crew valuable time. It would also give our crew more opportunity to spend time with our guests, ensuring we provide the best customer service possible," added Maroulás.
YOTEL Amsterdam, located at Asterweg 33 in Amsterdam Noord, will open its doors to the public at the end of October. It is the brand’s first YOTEL in mainland Europe and will offer slick design and a seamless experience enhanced by the clever use of technology at a surprisingly affordable price. The hotel’s relaxed all-day restaurant and bar spills out on to an alfresco deck and will offer a delicious menu of small and large plates, sharing platters and snacks.
