Yotel to open new flagship Tokyo hotel

Yotel is to open its first hotel in Japan.

Slated to open in 2024 under a long-term management agreement, Yotel Tokyo will be located in Ginza.

The 244-room hotel will feature the brand's robotic concierge YOBOT, motorised SmartBeds, and a touchless guest experience from reservation up to check-out.

The new property is part of Yotel’s wider expansion strategy to expand across key cities in Japan including Sapporo, Yokohama, Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe. The group is also working on opportunities to roll out YotelAir – the group's transit hotel concept - at key gateway airports and train stations.

Hubert Viriot, CEO of Yotel, said: “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.”
