Who says a staycation on Orchard Road has to be expensive? YOTEL Singapore, the first YOTEL to open in Asia, is one of the most affordable hotels located on Singapore’s famous shopping belt.
Inspired by first-class airline travel experiences and Japanese capsule hotels, the high-tech hotel prides itself on providing guests with “everything you need and nothing you don’t – and without the hefty price tag”.
It houses 610 smartly designed cabins (Yotel-speak for rooms) on levels 11 to 30, as well as a pool, a 24/7 gym, co-working spaces and Komyuniti Bar & Restaurant on level 10. The hotel reception is on level 2.
Located behind International Building, the hotel is the perfect base for you to rediscover Orchard Road and explore the buzzing street at leisure.
Here’s what you can look forward to during your staycation at the purple-themed hotel.
1. Hassle-Free Smart Services
Tech-savvy peeps can head straight to one of the hotel’s self-service kiosks on level 2 and check in easily. Those who prefer a human touch can head to the hotel’s counters for a conventional check-in process.
As for room service, you’ll be served by robots Yoshi and Yoland, the world’s first guest services robots, who are smartly engineered to independently move, speak and deliver amenities such as towels and water bottles to your room.
2. Smartly Designed Cabins That Are Big On Comfort
The centrepiece of every cabin is the adjustable SmartBed that glides at the touch of a button to variable positions for reading, working, relaxing and sleeping. Complementing the SmartBed is a super comfy Serta Mattress which features gel memory foam technology.
Each cabin also has a space-efficient Technowall with mood lighting, which houses a smart TV, a work desk with multiple power points, an ironing board and an umbrella.
3. Chill, Play, Eat & Drink On Level 10
The hotel’s community spaces on level 10 are designed for chilling, playing, exercising and socialising.
The hotel’s restaurant and bar Komyuniti serves bar bites such as Duck Fat Fries, Spicy Korean Fried Chicken, Charcoal Fish Fingers & Chips, Mini Pork Sliders and Flatbread Margherita; signature dishes such as Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowl, Beef Burger, Pasta Carbonara and Korean Spicy Chicken Bulgogi; and desserts like Potted Plant Tiramisu and Dark Chocolate Lava.
Enjoy Happy Hour at the bar from 5pm to 8pm, Tuesday to Sunday and all day on Monday. On Tuesdays from noon to 11pm, buy one draft beer and get the other free. Wednesdays are Ladies’ Night, and ladies can enjoy a 1-for-1 treat on Komyuniti’s range of spirits, wines and cocktails from 6pm to 11pm. On Thursdays, from noon to 10pm, get a bucket of five beers or a bottle of house wine for only $39++.
