      Yotel, motel

      This hotel was clean, modern and sleek, representing excellent value for accommodation in the South East.
      The design certainly maximises the space and it is probably not one for anyone suffering with claustrophobia or with lots of baggage (like us). Perfect option for those wanting a few hours sleep pre or post flight and none of the fuss which can be associated with hotels...

      Historical Traveler Reviews Yotel London Gatwick Airport Crawley

      Great hotel for single person

      from

      Stayed there over night off to montreal

      there was a lot of noise i was woken up at 5:30am

      the customer service is great very welling to help.

      the tv was good but i keep getting no signal when watching a movie also the internet was very slow .

      coffee at the hotel was ok 1.50 for a latti

      i would stay there again

      They thought of everything except the one thing that matters...

      from

      The Yotel is slick and cleverly designed for such a small space with everything you need to rest and freshen up on a layover EXCEPT that it isn't sound proof! I booked in for five hours and was constantly interrupted by the noise of other guests checking in and checking out.

      If you just want to stretch out and be more comfortable than in airport seats it's worth it, but if you actually want to sleep, bring ear plugs or spend the extra on a real hotel.

      Convenient but noisy

      from

      I loved the space age style and the clever use of a small amount of space. The main downside was the noise from other guests walking up and down the corridor. The floors were creaky and the doors were noisy.

      I loved the TV and the shower was great although the water didn't drain away completely which meant being careful when going to the loo as it was all in one room.

      Not as claustrophobic as I expected and comfortable but I was only there for 5 hours and couldn't get any sleep.

      An excellent idea with some teething problems

      from

      I think the concept of yotel is great. Its just the thing you need it you have an early morning flight or late arrival. Its very cost effective to book a couple of hours and have no need to worry about "frills" when all you want to do is sleep.

      I stayed there for an early morning flight. The concierge was very helpful and friendly and the rooms although tiny were very chic and clean.

      I stayed in a standard module and although they say the bed is a double I would disagree and say it would make for a very uncomfortable night with 2 people in one bed.

      It was good to be able to just get up walk out at 4am and be in the terminal there and then. There is also a 24 hour Costa Coffee as you come out of the life for early morning coffee and food.

      The only major issue I had when I was there was that the air con did not work properly. It was the hottest day of the year and temps had been 30 degrees that day. The bedroom was stifling. In the end I had to sleep with a wet towel over me to keep cool. I managed about 3 hours sleep. They were very apologetic about this and offered me free drinks.

      I hope this was just a teething problem and that it gets sorted out. I would be prepared to give it another go next time I have an early flight.

      They are also planning to open on at Heathrow, I think maybe in Terminal 5 when it opens in October.

      Yotel - small but not overly sweet

      from

      Stayed here at the end of July in a superior cabin and was not overly impressed with the whole pod style hotel considering how new the place is. Okay, the electric bed was cool, but after 10 minutes of going up and down it kinda lost its novelty factor. The room itself was very small as you would expect but nicely styled with a great shower .The internet/radio didnt work on the telly(took half an hour to get google to come up) and when I mentioned this in reception they couldn't do anything to sort this, just told me it goes slow like that. It annoys me when large companies open up funky hotels like this but dont install the hardware in the rooms that actualy works!! no excuse..

      The room was also noisy, you could hear whenever somebody else walked passed the room or entered one of the nearby rooms.

      I wouldnt recommend this hotel to couples who are either tall or big boned(u know what i mean) as the double bed seemed small compared to a standard double. This place would probably suit lone travellers or those without a car due to the great location (next to arrivals and the train station).

      So convenient - certainly beats airport seats!

      from

      We arrived in LGW after a very long flight from Singapore following a trip to Australia. We were all very tired and had 6 hours before our connecting flight home. We were luckily informed of the Yotel and were advised that we could have a room/pod for 40 pounds for 4 hours. We approached the hotel (with no booking) and luckily there were rooms available. There was a smaller room available too for 25 pounds, but this was really only suitable for 1/2 people at most (there were 3 of us - 2 adults and 1 child). We hired the room for 4 hours (which consisted of a double bed and a shower room/toilet) and it was great to get a sleep (using the blackout blinds) and to freshen up in the shower. There was a tv and internet access available (extra cost) but we were just interested in sleeping! The room/pod was VERY clean and although it was small (as expected), it was an absolute lifesaver and I would highly recommend this to anyone stranded at the airport with severe jet-lag!

      Comfortable, Clean, Convenient and Cheap!

      from

      I cannot praise Yotel enough! After missing my flight back home and thinking I would have to spend a ridiculous amount of money to book myself into a local hotel it was a huge relief to know that Yotel was right there and that they could easily accomodate me.

      I stayed in a Premium cabin and relaxed (this included a couple of Cobra beers!) whilst I waited for my flight. I could not fault the room it was comfy, clean, very stylish and well air conditioned.

      I will definiely be using Yotel again and I would recommend it to anyone.

      Very convenient

      from

      Fantastic for late arrival and early flight in the morning - literally 30 secs from the departure check-in. Rooms are obviously very small but the premium cabin has everything you need for a cosey night (tv, shower etc) and all very, very clean. Couple of things would improve things - two chairs instead of one; and a hook to hang a wash bag. Apart from that no complaints and a fantastic concept. Would always try one of these before any other airport hotel.

      Life Saver!

      from

      I got stranded in the London Gatwick Airport on 07/18, as I was supposed to be heading onto Madrid but missed my flight there. I tried to get a hotel in London, and it was at least 150 pounds or more to get a hotel last-minute. I was already missing my flights and missing out on money from the flights missed on Easy Jet, so I wanted to spend as little money as possible. I found out about the Yotel from the "Tourist" station at Gatwick Airport. I went down there, and I met this really nice employee working there, Martin (not sure of his name exactly, but he was from Poland originally). He said there weren't any rooms for that night, and without hesitation, I immediately burst into tears. I couldn't help it - I was stranded, tired and had few options now! He was so nice and sympathetic to my situation. He said to come back down in 2 hours and he would see what he could do. I thanked him repeatedly, went upstairs to eat, call my husband, etc. and headed back down 2 hours later. I'm not sure what he did to get a room for me, but he had a room ready for me when I came back. He was GREAT! Praises go out to him! I ended up having the room for 7 hours - from 12am to 7pm, and it was 43 pounds. That is so inexpensive compared to my other options at that point! The room was modern and clean and just what I needed. I thought it would just have a bed to sleep in, but there was a toilet, sink and shower. It was perfect! The bed was so comfy too. What a life saver, honestly! I would suggest the Yotel to anyone who wants to get a few extra hours of sleep while waiting for a flight at the Gatwick Airport, or if you get stranded like I did. It was a great experience! Thanks Yotel!

      Very convenient for overnight stay for early flight

      from

      I stayed here before an early flight from Gatwick,

      I was attracted by the price and the convemience for the airport.

      If you are on your own and looking for somewhere to sleep, the standard cabin is ideal.

      As you would expect the room is small, but there is room for luggage storage and the bathroom is adequate, toilet, basin, shower.

      The bed was very comfortable and I had a good nights sleep.

      There is some noise as residents come and go at different times of the day but I did not find this a problem.

      It should be noted that the ceiling above the bed is not full height, but there is room to sit up and move around on the bed.

      This is an ideal place to sleep before an early flight and I have already booked for my next early flight.

      Today we left Iceland (after an incredible drive around the South West of Iceland - AMAZING views!). We arrived at Gatwick and went straight into the Pod (a quiet cubical with an electric fold out bed) for at least 5 hours sleep.

      Here we go....

      Christmas was fantastic. We spent it up in Newcastle with my family but by the time we got back we were a bit frantic trying to get ourselves sorted. We did though and managed to get to Gatwick Airport on the evening of New Year's Day.

      Today has been the culmination of many months of planning (or as many of you would say, a shocking lack of planning!!). A pretty stressful day, all in all, which saw me start packing just 2 hours before due to leave! But I got there in the end! Packing done, with 10 minutes to spare, I caught the bus from my house to the train station. Despite lots …

      After Assyria came Greece, where I saw many of the typical red and black vases. One in particular had an interesting story behind it. The vase pictures Achilles stabbing Penthesileia, Queen of the Amazons, with a spear. The legend goes that soon after Achilles plunges the spear into her neck, she looks into his eyes and he falls instantly in love with her. Unfortunately for her, she dies. That's one way ...

      ... he is. Then we left off across the street for brunch. We went to Garfunkels for lunch which mum and Matthew hated with a passion. I didn't see the problem. For brunch I had a club sandwich which was toasted bread with chicken breast, bacon, tomatoes, eggs and a bunch of other things I can't remember. Dad had a pizza, Matthew had steak and chips (mind you the steak was rare) and mum had spaghetti and meatballs ( though she didn't finish it). I thoroughly enjoyed my ...
