Mini-room specialist Yotel on Tuesday opened an 80-room hotel at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport under the company's new Yotelair sub-brand.

The hotel is in the airport's Terminal 2E, which is home to Air France and the SkyTeam global alliance and is part of the airport's new "Instant Paris" transit-lounge area.

Like Yotel's other airport properties, the hotel is bookable by the hour, while it includes amenities such as round-the-clock flight information in its lobby and a "vending wall" that sells items such as chargers, adapters and toothbrush kits.

Yotel's mini-rooms feature adjustable beds that fold into couches as well as free high-speed WiFi and bathrooms with monsoon showers.

Yotel has airport hotels at London Heathrow, London Gatwick and Amsterdam Schiphol.
