Tried And Tested Aparthotels

BACKGROUND

Open since May, this is the eighth outpost for the design-focused aparthotel brand Locke, which has properties in the UK, Ireland and Germany. It is part of the Edyn group, which also includes Saco serviced apartments.

WHAT’S IT LIKE?

The new-build draws inspiration from its surroundings and is aimed at younger business travellers. The design, by Red Deer Architects, features industrial-style elements, bold prints and glass walls that let in light and give the sense of a shared environment. Sustainability is a focus, with eco-friendly amenities and plenty of greenery. To the left of reception is Shaman coffee bar, followed by a co-working area with communal tables, lounge seating and plenty of plug sockets. This space has its own street entrance and an oval bar. Stairs take you down to Kraft restaurant and microbrewery. There’s a gym and laundry room on this level, too. Check-in required a photo ID and credit card, while contactless check-out means you drop off your keys in a box at the desk.
