Room 2, the design-led aparthotel brand, has announced the development of a property in Southampton, following on from the inaugural opening of the brand in West London last year.
The aparthotel venue offers 71 studio rooms, and is located on 1-8 Queens Terrace in Southampton and is due to be completed by March 2018, with a further site planned to open in London next year.
Following the inaugural 2016 launch of Room 2 in West London, the property will offer flexible apartment-style rooms with a focus on community living and targeting long and short-term business and leisure stays.
Designed by Project Orange, the design takes advantage of large floor to ceiling heights, with raised sleeping decks and interior features simulating the style of cruise liners.
Room 2 is also home to a kitchen, work table, rainfall showers, free wifi, screen mirroring TV, king sized beds and air conditioning.
The public area offers a flexible ground floor, while a grab and go coffee bar operates during the day and turns into a bar in the evening.
Robert Godwin, founder of aparthotel Room 2 and MD of property business Lamington Group, said: “We’re really excited to bring to Southampton what we feel is the first truly stylish hotel space, taking the best of the emerging design hotel sector, and designing memorable guest experiences tailored to both long and short stays. We see a big need for high quality accommodation in the city, and we aim to deliver it.”
