Native Places opens seventh aparthotel

Native Places will open its seventh UK aparthotel in January 2024.

The lifestyle aparthotel brand is set to open Native King’s Wardrobe, St Paul’s, its fourth property in London.

There will be 92 apartments with fully-equipped kitchens and workspaces, as well as living and dining areas.

Guests can opt for studios, or one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. 

The aparthotel is spread across seven Grade II listed townhouses, situated in a private courtyard located behind St Paul’s Cathedral.

For those who want to be the first through the doors, one and two-bed concept apartments are available to book and stay in.  

Formerly known as the Royal Wardrobe in the 14th century, this historic property served primarily as a storehouse for the King’s state and ceremonial robes, including those belonging to members of the Royal Family.

Each townhouse has been named after British and international fashion designers who transformed British attire and style from the 17th century onwards.

Icons include Anna Maria Garthwaite, a mid-18th century English textile designer famous for vivid floral designs hand-woven in Spitalfields, and Ross Bertin, the dressmaker to Marie Antoinette, Queen of France.

Native King’s Wardrobe, St Pauls, will be the lifestyle brand’s London debut of Counter, a dedicated neighbourhood space.

Locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients and artisanal pastries will be available by day, while a wine bar and a host of curated events is set to be showcased in the evening. Partners include independent local businesses and ‘neighbourhood heroes’.

Stays at Native King’s Wardrobe, St Paul’s, start from £250 per night.
