Yotel is to open its fifth UK property in Glasgow next month.

The 257-room converted office will be the 17th in the portfolio created by YO! founder Simon Woodroffe.

The second Scottish Yotel and fourth European city centre property is set to open on May 12 on Argyle Street opposite Glasgow Central Station.

The hotel has a range of room [cabin] types from Premium Queen and Triple to First Class and a VIP suite, offering views over the station frontage.

Features include four-lane bowling alley, gym and event space for almost 300 people opening in June. The VEGA bar will feature DJs at night.

The hotel will include contactless technologies including a new app with a downloadable smartkey for room entry and self-service kiosks offering guests alternative ways to check-in, check-out and manage their stay. VEGA will also offer contactless mobile ordering and payment options.

Yotel chief executive Hubert Viriot said: “We remain optimistic about the future of travel, particularly for the Yotel brand, as we focus on our ‘everything you need and nothing you don’t’ approach which matches the needs of travellers in the current environment.

“As our third office conversion, Glasgow is another example of our flexibility in design which we believe will become more important as we look towards the future and continue our focus on conversions of offices, retail and existing hotels. “

Hotel general manager Stuart Douglas added: “Yotel exists to challenge the status quo, appealing to those who find traditional hotels uninspiring and who want more than a great sleep.”
