The first YOTEL was opened in 2007 at London Gatwick, closely followed by one at Heathrow airport,[4] with 46 and 32 "cabins", as they are named, at each, respectively.[5] In 2009, YOTEL opened a branch at Amsterdam Schiphol airport[6] and the company won the Business Accommodation of the Year award at the Business Travel World Awards.[7][8][9]

On 13 June 2011, YOTEL opened[10][8] a hotel in New York City at 570 10th Ave,[11] as a part of the $300 Million MiMA complex[12] which includes residential units. Rockwell Group and Softroom designed the 669 rooms[13][14] sized at 16 square metres (170 sq ft) each.[15] YOTEL New York has a multi-bar 4,000 square feet (370 m2) balcony, Terrace.[16]

As of 2015, YOTEL announced plans to expand to Boston, Dubai, Singapore (Orchard Road and Changi Airport), Paris (Charles De Gaulle), Miami, London and San Francisco.[17]

In 2017, YOTEL opened its city centre hotels in Boston [18] and Singapore [19] and begun construction in London.[20] It also announced a further location in Amsterdam city centre.[21]

Later in the year, YOTEL formed a $250 million strategic partnership with Starwood Capital Group for a 30 percent stake in the company and the first city YOTEL investment in Edinburgh was confirmed.[22]

In 2018, YOTEL launched its new brand: YOTELPAD. PAD is extended stay properties, where guests can stay from one day up to a year. YOTEL confirmed 6 new PAD developments in Park City, Dubai, Miami and Geneva.[23]

Furthermore, the company announced properties in Glasgow [24] and Istanbul New Airport.[25]

In 2018, YOTEL also forged a partnership with Plug and Play – a Silicon Valley innovation platform for start-ups, corporations and investors.[26]


Hotels have airline style self-check-in kiosks and keyless entry, convertible double beds, adjustable mood lighting and systems.[3] Furthermore, the New York hotel is home to the YOBOT, the world's first robotic luggage concierge that has become a tourist attraction in itself.[27]

The hotels in Boston [28] and Singapore [29] have delivery robots which take amenities to the rooms. These robots are programmed to negotiate lifts and corridors and they can interact with people.


The YOTEL concept came about when the founder was on a first-class flight and saw how it was possible to achieve a luxury feel in a compact space through the use of clever design and technology.[30] The team enlisted the help of aircraft cabin designers Priestman Goode to design and build a prototype room known as a ‘cabin’.[31] The original prototype cabin was displayed at an exhibition called 100% Design in London.[32]
