I stumbled upon a review of the Yotel when searching for a hotel for a quick, 8 hour layover at Heathrow. After getting in late, the last thing I wanted to do was to wait for a courtesy shuttle to take me to a hotel off the premises AND doing the same thing all over again a few hours later. After thinking about it, I decided to stay at the Yotel - I'm glad that I did.
Check-in was a breeze. There are kiosks outside the facility but the night manager brought me in and checked me in personally. Bought a beer from the cooler behind him and headed to the room. I realized that the room was small, but one does not really get the sense of how small of space it is until the door closes behind you. It is, however, well thought out and perfect for a nights sleep. After a shower and earplugs (I sleep with them at home because of dog barking), I fell fast asleep.
Could not make any changes. The manager even looked for my lost iPad charger (I found it deep in my backpack after I filled in my online, post-stay survey). Sorry about that!
