Vonder, the global co-living brand, has announced that it will launch a new branch of its evolved co-living concept, presenting two community driven hotels in Earls Court and Paddington, with the former due to launch in May and the latter in July.
The company said the project is an additional venture to the Vonder residential sites already situated in key areas across London.
It said the concept has been created to offer a “social hotel experience” for guests looking to stay for both short and long-term periods, whether they travel for business, studying or leisure. Overall, the two hotels will offer 95 rooms between each of the four buildings and will accommodate stays for one to four people.
Vonder Earls Court will span across three buildings including no. 27-28 Philbeach Gardens, which will host 38 rooms and a communal café for guests to work and socialise. The second building is located at 109 Warwick Road with 19 rooms and a gym, with 60 Warwick Road completing Earls Court hotel offering 16 rooms and a private communal garden.
The garden will host community events in line with the Covid guidelines. These events will include wellness sessions, such as yoga, fitness and meditation, as well as music concerts and open-air parties and cinema nights.
In addition, Vonder Paddington will be located at 14 Devonshire Terrace, hosting 22 rooms. Both locations provide great proximity and transport links into the heart of central London within 10 mins via tube, rail or bus.
All Vonder hotel rooms will have their own bathrooms, kitchenettes, TVs and access to high-speed WIFI. Similar to Vonder’s other co-living projects across global cities, guests will have access to all hotel amenities located less than 20 minutes away between each of the buildings.
It also revealed that communal areas within the hotels were designed by the upcoming British artist Jenny Beard, who was invited to create “right and bold murals across all buildings”.
Tomer Bercoviz, CEO of Vonder, said: “We are excited to present a new kind of Vonder experience. Hotels have evolved in recent years, and we have recognised a gap in the market where people are wanting to book for extended stays but not commit to long-term rental contracts.
“There is an opportunity for our hotels to provide a comfortable and safe temporary home for guests wanting to stay in London for longer periods of time, with access to great amenities and a diverse global community.”
He added: “During the pandemic, we have seen a growing global trend with hotels shifting their concept to extended stays. Our business venture works in parallel to this, and alongside our wider co-living portfolio by providing more of a bespoke longer stay solution to international travellers. London is a fantastic destination to be launching our first hotels, and we look forward to welcoming our first guests.”
