Kingsland Locke

We're counting down to the opening of Kingsland Locke - the latest in a series of cool apartment/hotel hybrids. Peter Gray reports.

Neither hotel nor apartment complex, Locke is a new breed of accommodation which combines the best of both worlds.

Encompassing the creature comforts of a hotel with the freedom and space of an apartment, Locke’s sites are part of a new generation of aparthotels. 

The company have three branches in London (Leman Locke, Locke at the Millennium Bridge and Bermonds Locke) and they are currently putting the finishing touches to a fourth branch in East London.

The latest Locke takes the aparthotel concept to trendy Dalston, where guests will have the best foodie spots, market stalls, coffee shops, pubs, clubs, and pop-ups right on their doorstep.

And with Broadway Market, London Fields and the Geffrye Museum within walking distance, and excellent transport links close by, Kingsland Locke is your gateway to the treasures of the capital. 

Enjoy the best of both worlds

Staying with Locke means you have your own kitchen and sofa to enjoy. However, since the venues combine the best of both worlds – you’ll also have access to a co-working area, workout studio, coffeeshop, restaurant & microbrewery!

The interiors are pretty natty, too. Locke have commissioned the Red Deer Design Studio to decorate the new site and they have clearly outdone themselves with a series of spaces that take inspiration from the local neighbourhood while also putting the focus firmly on rest and relaxation.

Kingsland Locke represents a new breed of venue: one that aims to satisfy those who yearn for the creature comforts of a hotel but also want the space and freedom of an apartment. Although Locke’s sites are full of stylish interiors and comfy furnishings, the company encourage their guests to put their feet up and feel at home. It is this mixture of the style conscious and the easy going that makes the company’s latest opening such an exciting prospect.
