Our clever use of space means we can offer central, convenient locations at an outstandingly affordable price. We will never stop innovating.
YOTEL was created by YO! founder Simon Woodroffe OBE (yo.co.uk) who translated the language of luxury airline travel into a small but luxurious cabins through smart design. A first prototype cabin was created and exhibited at the '100% Design Show' in London in 2007. It was well-received by the industry and the media, leading to funding for the first two hotels. Since then it's been our mission to disrupt the travel industry.

YOTELs are typically conceived for short stays (1-3 nights) and are located in easily accessible, fast upcoming city centres, making it the perfect base for business or pleasure stays. YOTELs are uncompromisingly designed around guests, taking the essential elements of luxury hotels into a compact, but smart space and delivering a sense of community with areas for co-working, social gatherings and exercise. The social areas may include a gym, a Club Lounge, restaurants, rooftop bars etc.
- TRAVEL SMARTER
YOTELAIRs are typically conceived for very short stays (1-24 hours) and are located inside airport terminals making it easy to catch early flights or get to bed after a late-night arrival. They are also perfect for killing time during long layovers, not to mention flight delays and cancellations. They have limited services but they provide everything necessary for a guest to relax, refresh, sleep and connect with complimentary hot drinks and super fast WiFi. Our cabins are bookable by the hour with check-in and check-out times completely up to each guest.
- LIVE SMARTER
YOTELPAD’s are typically conceived for long stays. They optimise square metres, include sleeping and living areas with comfortable bathrooms, kitchenettes, work desks and ample storage space. Technology makes it easy to connect, stay charged and manage services during an extended stay. Our first YOTELPAD developments will be launched in Park City and Miami in 2020. You will not only be able to stay at a YOTELPAD but also you will be able to purchase one, if you so wish.

We ❤ green
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. That’s the motto YOTEL live by. Our environmentally friendly credentials are woven into our brands' standards. We constantly encourage our crew to continue improving our sustainability record. Also, our CANI teams (Constant And Never-ending Innovation) keep sustainability at the forefront of everything we do. Lots of energy is required to run a business but at YOTEL, we always ensure we keep our carbon footprint to an absolute minimum. YOTEL 'green' initiatives: occupancy sensors (to automatically activate the heating), lighting and cooling systems (to ensure nothing keeps running when the cabins are empty), water flow monitoring systems in all our cabins, low-energy LED lighting, minimal paper usage and print policy, favour suppliers that produce products from recycled materials, shampoo and body wash containers refill policy etc.
The Sound, Smell and Feel of YOTEL
We partner with electronic producer, DJ and music coordinator, Tom Middleton to produce a unique soundtrack for YOTEL to create a unique hotel experience for our guests.
A bespoke scent was commissioned and developed by 12:29 which is exclusively available in YOTEL public areas. We customised the ‘CONNECT’ scent to be clean, easy, playful and comfortable, just like the YOTEL experience.
In collaboration with Mindfresh, renowned for inspiring thoughtful meditation in the modern workplace, YOTEL has created a series of fun and playful videos, which are shown on the YOTEL television channel. They include a series of movements and positions aimed to encourage guests to be more mindful, healthy and feel more ‘at-home’ during their stay.
