Yotel is to launch 32 cabins at Heathrow Terminal 4 next week following its initial launch at Gatwick earlier this year.

Modelled on first-class airline cabins, the rooms are aimed at business travellers in transit or wishing to stay over ahead of an early morning flight.

The rooms are bookable for a four-hour stay, making them suitable for passengers who experience delays or cancellations. They come equipped with WiFi, workstations and ‘techno wall’ entertainment systems.

Yotel has plans to expand globally, with a 56-cabin hotel at Schipol in Amsterdam opening early 2008.

Created by the creator of YO! Sushi Simon Woodroffe, the first Yotel opened in Gatwick’s south terminal in June 2007.
