Yotel opens a transit hotel at Paris’ Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport.

The British Yotel chain opened its first site in France on 7 November 2016. Located in Terminal 2E at Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport, it targets international passengers connecting between flights.

With 80 rooms, Yotelair Paris is designed to make life easier for you (and your back) during long flight connections. Open to travelers in Terminals 2-E, F, G, K, L and M, the “cabins,” measuring from 8 to 10 m2 (86-107 ft2) can be booked 24/7 on yotel.com or using a screen at the hotel. Two types of rooms are available: “Premium Cabin” (up to two adults – €59 for four hours) and “Family Cabin” (up to four people – €79 for four hours).

Services inside and outside your room

Once in your room, you benefit from a high-tech atmosphere including a Technowall, power sockets compatible with equipment from various countries, and even an automatic hot food distributor. “The rooms are small but they are like a cocoon, and rate three or four stars,” said Yotel spokesperson Julie Vautrin in an interview with Le Figaro. In addition to its comfortable rooms, Yotelair Paris also wants to make life easier for the busiest travelers with its Club Lounge, fully-equipped workspaces, and super-fast WiFi.

A growing customer base

To fill its cabins, the British chain is counting on an increase in international flights from CDG. Therefore, it located the French site inside the airport, in proximity to Air France and the companies of the SkyTeam Global Alliance. “The number of connecting passengers at Paris airports increased 5.7% in 2015, amounting to 24% of the passengers,” said Hubert Viriot, Yotel CEO. The phenomenon is particularly tangible for Asian customers in transit to the United States or Africa. Travelers from afar who should enjoy their short stay at Yotelair Paris… As long as they remember to set their alarm to catch the next flight!
