“Perfect place for a layover”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

I was recently traveling from terminal 4 with an early flight and wanted to get there the night before so I didn't have to rush. The problem with a lot of Heathrow airport hotels is they're actually still a taxi ride away. Not so for the Yotel where you literally couldn't be closer.

Despite its location in the bowels of the airport, it's wonderfully quiet and perfect to get a few hours sleep before taking the 1 minute walk up to security to go through for your flight. It meant I didn't have to rush, and I could enjoy the start of my holiday the way I wanted to.

The bed was comfortable and the room clean and warm. Considering how tiny the room was it didn't feel claustrophobic, and the shower was actually decently sized and powerful enough.

I found staff very helpful, though I didn't need much assistance, it would definitely be there if required.

Without a doubt I would and will be using the Yotel again.

Location is excellent for connecting flights.
Room is tiny but the bed is wide and very comfortable.
Bathroom small but clean and new.
access is easy from all terminals.
The checking in was quick (ordered in advance) and so was the checking out.
folding desk and folding chair might be suitable for some only.

Room Tip: mine was suitable for 1 person

We recently spent several hours resting at this very comfortable and efficient little hotel. We were on route from Nairobi to Philadelphia and had an eight hour layover in London. Since we left Nairobi at 11:45pm we knew we would be exhausted when we got to London. Booking Yotel was the best decision we could have made because we got a few hours sleep and a shower and felt great for the rest of the trip and evening when we got home. The room was small but very efficient. There was nothing lacking. The only problem we had was the time it took to transfer from Terminal 5 to Terminal 4. We had to allow time to leave through immigration on the way in and go through security on the way back to Terminal 5. There was also a short amount of time where it became noisy when thoughtless guests were speaking loudly to each other as they went by our room. Otherwise everything was great and I would highly recommend Yotel for rest during a long layover.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the end where people won't be coming and going.

I had a very early start - 5am so opted to stay here rather than travel to Heathrow during the night. I checked in at 6pm and out at 5am. It took less than minute to get from my room to the check-in desk for my flight upstairs. Perfect for early flights. Only a little more expensive than the hotels close by to Heathrow but without the hassle of getting on a bus to get there! I would really recommend Yotel for a no-hassle, stress-free, quick and easy way of getting your head down - a bed and a bathroom and free tea and coffee - what else do you need?!!

This hotel was perfect for a sleep before an earlyflight. It's a very small, but very well designed room. Comfortable and total darkness for sleeping. I really liked this place and would use it again for a sleep and a shower before or after a flight from Heathrow. Wish they had one in T1 or 3.

Spent one night in Yotel at Heathrow. As a place to get away from the noise of the airport whilst waiting for an early morning flight, whilst watching TV it was ok. However it is claustraphobic, and very noisy. Also the toilet is not well screened and slightly smelly. Didn't use the shower as luggage would have been soaked. If all you want is somewhere to lay back and watch tv it ticks the boxes.

Plan ahead, a few days ahead preferably. A stay in Yotel gives good rest. It will also open your eyes to how business travel should be.

Book early is essential. The cabins here get booked out rapidly. Try not to cancel your booking unless absolutely. This is a kind consideration for fellow travellers. Besides, we want Yotel to operate well and profitably. The opportunity cost of a cabin booking cancelled and cabins left vacant is uncalled for.

Feel free to chat with the crew members. They are warm and honest with their recommendations.

Room Tip: Book online. A few days ahead of time. Please, do not cancel unless absolutely necessary; we do not...
