UK: The Gate, a boutique aparthotel opening late March in Aldgate East, offers a variety of room types for leisure or business guests seeking short or long term stays.

The property is influenced by the style and culture of the London street it overlooks. 

With 20 floors and 189 rooms, The Gate offers views of landmarks such as The Gherkin, The Shard and Brick Lane.

Rooms, ranging from studios to two-bedroom apartments, come equipped with fitted kitchens, Le Labo luxury amenities and Hypnos beds.

At the heart of The Gate are different communal spaces for socialising or conducting business. A members lounge on the fifth floor is exclusively for hotel guests.

In the members lounge, guests can help themselves to self-service coffee, water, and juice. By night, the space is transformed into a bar with a wine vending machine and beer wall.

A seasonal experience programme, which includes yoga classes, BBQs and wine masterclasses in the summer, takes place on the lounge’s outdoor terrace.

Partners of the hotel include Maddox Gallery, who have curated the artwork around the property including a Banksy in the lobby, and Retna, Bradley Theodore and The Connor Brothers pieces displayed in the private members lounge.

Healthy eating company, Maple & Co, will open its eighth location and will be situated on the ground floor of the hotel, serving a range of breakfast items, as well as lunch and dinner options.

Other facilities include a state-of-the art gym with personal trainers and Peloton bikes that are available in-room upon request.

Utilising the latest technology, the hotel benefits from self-service check-in and guest requests are communicated to the hotel team via mobile devices. 

Aga Rosinska, general manager at The Gate Aparthotel said: “The idea for The Gate aparthotel was born out of traditional gate and guesthouses, where people would socialise in communal spaces then retreat to their private rooms. The gatehouses would often be right on the edge of a city, so guests could use the property as a base to explore the surrounding neighbourhoods easily. We wanted to recreate this offering and atmosphere for a modern audience. It’s really exciting to be launching our first aparthotel, introducing a new kind of hospitality experience to the London market and Gateway to the City - we cannot wait to see how our guests use the space.”
