Yotel has signed its first hotel in Japan.
Scheduled to open in 2024 under a long-term management agreement, Yotel Tokyo will be located in Ginza, one of Tokyo’s most desirable and dynamic neighborhoods.
The 244-room hotel will showcase the brand’s latest features including robotic concierges, motorised SmartBeds and fully integrated technologies designed to provide a completely touchless guest experience from reservation all the way through to check-out.
Yotel Tokyo will also feature the brand’s versatile public areas, a 24/7 fitness centre, a Grab-and-Go cafe, 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,” said Hubert Viriot, CEO of Yotel. “We are immensely proud and excited to announce our first hotel in Tokyo. A flagship for our group, Yotel Tokyo will also be a steppingstone to roll out our brand across Japan, a market of strategic importance for Yotel.”
Yotel Tokyo will be just steps away from the heart of Ginza and a fifteen-minute walk from Tokyo station, home to the city’s main Shinkansen high-speed rail terminal.
Yotel Tokyo is part of Yotel’s wider expansion strategy that covers key cities in Japan including Sapporo, Yokohama, Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe.
The company is also looking for opportunities to roll out YotelAir, the group’s transit hotel concept, at key gateway airports and train stations in the country.© Travel News Asia
