Yotel has announced plans to open its third property in the UK.
The group – best known for its compact cabin concept at airports including Gatwick, Heathrow, Amsterdam Schiphol and most recently Paris CDG– will open a 212-room hotel in London’s Clerkenwell district in late 2018.
The property will be located on Clerkenwell Rd close to Farringdon station, which will be a hub on the Crossrail line when it opens in late 2018.
The hotel will feature signature facilities including adjustable “smart beds”, mood lighting, free wifi, smart TVs and monsoon rain showers, along with a Club Lounge offering “flexible meeting and co-working spaces that will be designed in keeping with the surrounding area”.
Other facilities will include a gym, bar, and an “independently operated dining outlet”.
Yotel unveiled the Yotel Air brand last year, which has been developed to differentiate its airport properties from existing and forthcoming city centre hotel including the 669-room Yotel New York.
Yotel CEO Hubert Viriot, said: “We are more than ready to bring the YOTEL city-centre concept home. Since the opening of our flagship in New York, we have been looking for the right opportunity and we finally found it in Clerkenwell.
“The mixed-use project, developed by Medina Investments, complements the YOTEL brand perfectly. It’s dynamic, creative and forward-thinking and backed by a developer with acumen and vision.”
