YOTEL New York

A little piece of Japan in the heart of Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen.

For our short stay in the Big Apple we have booked YOTEL New York, in the southern part of Hell's Kitchen, a short walk away from Port Authority Bus Terminal and Times Square.

YOTEL New York has you right in the heart of the city so finding NYC’s legendary landmarks will be a breeze. We’re two blocks from Port Authority bus station, 20 minutes’ walk from Penn Station and Grand Central, 45 minutes from LaGuardia and an hour from both JFK and Newark airports!

For independent, tech-savvy travellers who value time and efficiency, YOTEL offers guests a whole new hotel experience with everything you need and nothing you don't. We use our signature, cutting-edge design to create small but perfectly-formed cabins for guests who appreciate quality but don't need the fuss of a traditional luxury hotel.

Can't deny that each time entering the building reminded me of Nine Hours capsule hotel we stayed in when visiting Kyoto.

What sets us aside from other New York hotels is our clever design. We optimise every inch of space and create contemporary areas for co-working and socialising.

We would like to think that our use of technology makes things easier and saves you time and money by giving you everything you need and nothing you don’t.

Our cabins all feature our signature adjustable SmartBed™ with luxury bedding, rejuvenating rain showers, relaxing mood lights, numerous charging points and smart TVs that can easily be connected to guests’ own devices.

And some great views too!

Our guests enjoy one of the largest outdoor hotel terraces in New York.

However the day before the marathon it was too cold and windy outside, so we ended up relaxing inside in the hotel bar (which incidentally had a tiny vibe of Kathmandu's Electric Pagoda, which we liked so much after our 3 Passes Trek):

And the next day was the marathon day!
