Aparthotel, The Gate, to open in East London

Modern travellers want hotel levels of service and style, as well as the privacy and flexibility of a self-catering apartment. The aparthotel can be the solution, and the opening of The Gate in East London claims to provide it.

The Gate in East London opens soon serviced apartments
Needs and taste in accommodation for modern travellers are changing: people desire more choice than a traditional hotel versus self-catering apartments, and The Gate, opening late March 2020, aims to bridge the gap between the two.

Stay one night or three months

The new aparthotel aims to feel like an elevated version of a real home, with full-service amenities and flexible stay periods where guests can stay for one night or up to three months.Situated in Whitechapel, just a one-minute walk from Aldgate East tube station, The Gate is directly influenced by the style and culture of the vibrant London streets it overlooks, connecting guests with its surroundings and the local East London community. With 20 floors and 189 rooms, The Gate offers  360° views of The Gherkin, The Shard and Brick Lane, appealing to guests no matter the length of their stay. Partners include Maddox Gallery, who have curated the artwork around the hotel, including a Banksy in the lobby, and Retna, Bradley Theodore and The Connor Brothers pieces displayed in the private members lounge, making the property their new East London Gallery. 

A base to explore

Aga Rosinska, General Manager at The Gate Aparthotel says, “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".

Art and East London atmosphere

Guests checking in for days or weeks will have rooms designed to be modern and functional, but with artistic flourishes to create a homely feel. There are nine room categories each with a bedroom, fitted kitchen and living area, and some featuring a separate living space with a sofa bed, which is ideal for families. Introductory rates start from £100 including VAT for the studio apartments. Room types include one and two bed apartments, accessible rooms, interconnecting family rooms and rooms with skyline views. The Gate hotel provides those who stay with accessibility both to the City of London and the buzzing heart of East London. Read more about Serviced Apartments
