Yotel has announced plans to open its first hotel in Scotland’s capital Edinburgh in quarter one of 2019.
The city centre hotel will be located on the famous Queen Street in Edinburgh, at Erskine House.
Situated in a remarkably central location and surrounded by a Unesco World Heritage Site, the new hotel will boast easy access to top city attractions and have excellent transport links with both Waverley and Haymarket railway stations within walking distance.
Integrating the elements of luxury hotels into cleverly designed spaces, the hotel will offer approximately 280 rooms known as ‘cabins.’
From a Premium Cabin to a VIP Suite, Yotel Edinburgh will offer something to suit every budget and every traveller’s needs without compromising on comfort and convenience.
“Edinburgh is both a popular tourist and business hub and our new hotel will be a great addition to the city, appealing to both markets.
“Our contemporary and playful design together with technology driven experiences, will offer an exciting alternative to the current mostly traditional offering,” said Yotel chief executive, Hubert Viriot.
“Yotel is on a rapid expansion path and the announcement of our Edinburgh city hotel plays an integral part in our future plans in Scotland and the rest of the globe.”
The new hotel will feature a dramatic two-storey screening room and destination bar fronting Queen Street in addition to Yotel’s Club Lounge concept, which offers flexible meeting and co-working spaces along with areas to relax and socialise.
The project is currently in development stages and marks the first use of the $250 million strategic partnership announcement between Yotel and an affiliate of Starwood Capital Group, a global private investment firm, in September.
The project will be designed by Edinburgh-based Fletcher Joseph Architects and global interior designer, Aedas with construction by ISG.
