SCHIPHOL â€“ Starting in 2008 Schiphol’s terminal D will be home to a “Yotel,” an innovative new design hotel with 56 rooms. The first Yotel was recently opened at London’s Gatwick Airport. The location at Schiphol will be the third in the world.
It will also be the second hotel to open behind passport control and intended for transfer passengers who have a short layover but who want to rest comfortably or freshen up. The concept was specially designed for locations with limited space, like Schiphol airport.
The rooms are 9 square metres in size. “Each room contains a modern foldaway bed, a table and a television screen that allows guests not only to watch tv but also use the internet or order food, for instance. Each room has a spacious and luxurious modern bathroom,” says Freek Vermeulen, manager of product development for the Schiphol Group.
The rates for the rooms have not yet been announced, but they will be charged by the hour. The new hotel will be located in the second floor lounge on the D pier.
