Innovative London based hotel brand, YOTEL, will be responsible for operating the new airport hotel in the main terminal building, conveniently located on the departures level and right next to passport control. The new hotel will be ideal for both business and leisure travellers, as well as airline crew and other businesses within the airport and local environment.
The hotel, which will be one of the biggest airport hotels in the world, and the biggest in Europe, will have 451 rooms (also known as cabins). YOTEL will introduce its clever design and use of technology in two zones – one airside (174 cabins) and one landside (277 cabins). Both parts of the new hotel will feature public spaces including smart vending, co-working and relaxing areas, wellness centres and planted glazed atriums to connect people with nature. In addition, the landside zone will include a restaurant, bar and 24/7 gym. The new hotel will also feature flexible meeting spaces with seamless technology, ideal for small or large, formal and casual meetings, conveniently located for airport businesses and passengers alike.
At YOTEL everything is designed around the needs of the modern traveller. From adjustable SmartBeds™, refreshing monsoon rain showers and dynamic adjustable lighting to free super-fast WiFi and the ability to connect own devices to smart TVs to stream music or video at the touch of a button. Guests can check in and out whenever they choose and can book for as little as four hours making it ideal for guests on long transits. Airline style self-check in kiosks are available avoiding lengthy queueing times at traditional hotel reception desks and freeing up guests to get on with what is important to them.
