The second London property and fourth in the UK in a collection of design-led aparthotels from pioneering hospitality brand Locke opens next month on the Thames at London’s Millennium Bridge with the 113-room Locke at Broken Wharf.
Designed according to the company “for travellers for whom a bed and shower in a shoebox isn’t enough”, it is minutes from both Cannon Street and Blackfriars on the north bank stretch of the river path.
Two more London openings in Bermondsey and Dalston are planned later this year, in addition to projects in Dublin, Munich, Berlin, Lisbon and Copenhagen, building on the success of Locke’s existing hotels in East London, Manchester and Edinburgh.
The company, part of edyn Apartments, says it takes its cue from the demands of the contemporary traveller, blending the advantages of a high-end lifestyle hotel with the space and flexibility of an apartment.
Complete with views of Tate Modern and Shakespeare’s Globe, the new property’s social spaces include an all-day restaurant, bar and a co-working area featuring a cultural programme spanning wellness, fitness, art and music.
The rooms are generously sized with high-spec kitchens with guests able to choose between a short stay in a Locke Studio, average size 29sq m, or one of the larger premium River Suites, average size 33sq m, for a longer-term visit.
