Situated in Whitechapel, and just a one-minute walk from Aldgate East tube station, The Gate is “directly influenced” by the style and culture of the London streets it overlooks, and aims to connect guests with its surroundings and the local East London community.
The property will feature 189 rooms with fitted kitchens.
Health food restaurant Maple & Co will also be opening its 8th location at the property, Maple and The Gate Café, and will be set on the ground floor and include outdoor seating.
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.”
She added: “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.”
