I love city breaks – exploring new places is one of my favourite past times.

After recently relocating to Manchester, I have tried to maintain regular trips to the capital. London is a great destination to visit but it can be expensive – especially when it comes to accommodation. Like all good city breaks, the more time spent out exploring the better but coming back to a stylish hotel with a comfy bed is important.

When I heard YOTEL was opening in central London I was looking forward to checking it out. YOTEL is best known for its compact cabins and affordable prices – meaning you can have an affordable city break without compromising on style. Based in Clerkenwell’s Creative Quarter the location is great. Farringdon station is a five minute walk away meaning you’re connected by rail and tube, whilst local gems like Leather Lane are moments away.

Each of the 212 cabins are equipped with YOTEL’s revolutionary technology-driven hospitality offering. The rooms are compact are artistically crafted to enhance and make the most of the space – with a signature space saving smart-bed, dressing table and tucked away wardrobe space. The design is thoughtful and reminiscent of pod hotels which you might see in the likes of Singapore and Japan. The monsoon shower was a real highlight. The space works perfectly and it is clear that every little touch, no matter how small, is intentional.

Additional features of the hotel include a gym, bar and the Komyuniti restaurant which serves up street food inspired bar snacks and larger plates – all washed down with a range of local craft beer and speciality cocktails.

Getting around

Visit the quirky museums and green spaces nearby or explore the rest of central London – easily reachable on foot, bike and public transport. It’s a five minute walk to the nearest tube station, an eight minute bus ride into Shoreditch and a 12 minute cycle into Soho.


After over 18 months of restrictions, there is no better time to get out exploring. YOTEL is the perfect destination for an affordable city break without compromising on style. Book here.

I already can’t wait to return.
