Yotel today (5 December) opened a capsule hotel with 32 cabins at Heathrow Terminal 4 following the launch of its first at Gatwick”s south terminal in June.
The hotel concept is aimed very much at business travellers waiting in transit, or wanting to stay over the day before an early flight, or with long scheduled transfers - as well as those with unexpected flight delays and cancellations.
The cabins at Heathrow are equipped with desks, free wi-fi and wired internet access workstations, and entertainment systems.
Business travellers are able to make phone calls, catch up on emails and the latest business news on TV in peace. Fresh ground coffee and food can be enjoyed in the cabins.
Yotel believe they are providing a ”flexible and convenient first class hotel experience at affordable prices.”
Prices for a standard cabin range from ”25 ($51) for four hours and from ”56 ($114) for an over-night stay. A premium cabin will cost from ”40 ($82) for four hours and from ”82 ($167) overnight.
The cabins are available to book for just a few hours enabling delayed and transfer passengers an opportunity to relax or take a shower.
”Yotel Heathrow will offer more passengers the chance to experience a little bit of luxury and relaxation right inside the worlds busiest airport,” said Yotel CEO, Gerald Greene.
”We continue to expand globally with Schiphol opening in early 2008 and other exciting destinations around the globe to be announced.”
