YOTEL is debuting in the Iberian Peninsula with the latest opening in Porto, Portugal. Located on Rua de Gonçalo Cristovao, the hotel boasts 150 perfectly designed rooms and features YOTEL’s signature fully adjustable space saving SmartBed™, multiple sockets and USB charging points, superfast WiFi and SMART HD TVs with Chromecast technology. Each room has a rejuvenating rain shower with Urban Skincare amenities to enjoy.
In the spirit of creating a seamless low touch stay, guests can download the YOTEL Porto mobile app which will allow them to check in even before arriving at the hotel and use the app as their SmartKey on any mobile device, not only saving time but keeping the arrival and check-in process as safe as possible. The app can also be used to alert the crew if additional cleaning is required and can act as the TV remote control as well as lighting control for the cabin.
In addition to the YOTEL Porto app, guests can also use automated check-in stations that adhere to YOTEL’s #SmartStay programme, a package of measures, resources and training that has been rolled out at every one of their hotels worldwide to help keep guests safe.
Hotel facilities include a 24/7 fully equipped gym, on-site parking, meeting rooms, co-working spaces and Komyuniti, the hotel bar and a restaurant with an outdoor deck. Guests can choose to have meals at the restaurant, room service or pick-up service. The hotel also offers fully adaptable event spaces with great views of the city. The hotel also has a Grab+Go area with light meals and drinks.
Nuno Godinho, Hotel Manager at YOTEL Porto, commented: “The opening of the first YOTEL in the Iberian Peninsula following such a challenging time for hospitality is testament to the brands’ dedication and United Investments Portugal’s continuous support and investment in the tourism industry as a whole. I am confident that this hotel with its innovative vision and tech infrastructure, will be a great success here in Porto. The way we do things has always been different and YOTEL Porto will offer a safe, seamless and fun experience for all visitors to the city of Porto”.
