UK-headquarated hotel group Yotel has unveiled its first property in Japan, Yotel Tokyo, slated to open in 2024.
The 244-key hotel will showcase the brand’s signature robotic concierge YOBOT, motorised SmartBeds, and fully integrated technologies enabling a complete touchless guest experience from reservation up to check-out.
Yotel Tokyo will also feature a 24/7 fitness centre, a Grab-and-Go café where guests can take away locally-sourced food and drink options, a meeting space and an outdoor terrace.
“Japan’s focus on technology and innovation has been an important source of inspiration for Yotel ever since our inception. We are immensely proud and excited to announce our first hotel in Tokyo. A flagship for our group, Yotel Tokyo will also be a stepping stone to roll out our brand across Japan, a market of strategic importance for Yotel,” said Hubert Viriot, CEO of Yotel.
Yotel Tokyo will stand in Ginza, the city’s most popular dining and shopping destination. The hotel is also only a fifteen-minute walk from Tokyo station, providing access to most parts of Japan, including the Narita Express that connects to Narita International Airport.
Yotel Tokyo is part of the group’s wider expansion strategy to expand across key cities in Japan including Sapporo, Yokohama, Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe, as well as to launch YOTELAir – the group’s transit hotel concept – at key gateway airports and train stations.
