On the day of departure, we had to check out at 12 noon as our rented place will be occupied later of the day. And since our flight was only at night, we were worried that we had to spend several hours at the airport and was thinking of getting a taxi to bring us to the nearest hotel near Heathrow Airport but thanks to a wonderful airport staff who showed us Yotel in the airport itself.
We quickly booked 2 units for the 4 of us for a few hours. The rooms were really compact but it comes with a tiny shower & toilet, a super comfy bed that can sleep 2 and a flat-screen tv.
The F&B menu was limited but we were happy with the vegetarian Singapore noodles and the kids were happy to get their hands on the Haagen Dazs ice cream. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate are on the house and free-flow for the guests.
The only downside to me was that all payments no matter how much need to be done via credit card only.
