Yotel Breaks Ground on Third UK Location
- Feb 02, 2017
London—Yotel has announced plans to open a 212-key hotel located in Central London’s creative quarter of Clerkenwell, at 96-100 Clerkenwell Road. Developer Medina Investments will transform the current site into a mixed-use development that will embody Yotel’s innovative and technology-focused identity.
Hotel amenities will include a monsoon rain shower, techno-wall features, which include mood lighting and entertainment options, TVs, a fitness center, bar and free Wi-Fi. Additional facilities include an independently operated dining outlet and Yotel’s Club Lounge concept, which offers flexible meeting and co-working spaces.
Located at the center of this historic district, the hotel is just a few minutes away from Farringdon Station, Spa Fields Park, City University London and a 15-minute walk to the world-famous Barbican Centre for performing arts. The hotel will also be close to the historic Old Sessions House, a newly refurbished public space.
“We are more than ready to bring the Yotel city-center 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,” Yotel’s CEO Hubert Viriot said in a statement.
The new hotel is slated to open in late 2018 and will mark the company’s third property in the U.K.
