Up until now, Selina has been a venture capital backed concept boasting a total of 128 properties across 19 countries. 

It aims to convert existing hotels to its ‘Latin-American inspired aesthetic’ instead of developing sites from scratch.

The experience-led hospitality group targets the ‘modern nomadic traveller’ with Selina Birmingham comprising 39 bedrooms, including a female-only category and a range of social spaces. 

Selina Manchester opened in August this year, comprising a restaurant, bar, coffee shop, Irish pub, basement club and 37 bedrooms, ranging from private rooms, suites and shared rooms.

The group was first started in 2015 in Panama.
