BridgeStreet has secured the operations of Stow-Away Waterloo, an aparthotel situated in the regenerated London neighbourhood.
Developed by a joint venture between Stow Projects and Ciel Capital and managed by BridgeStreet, Stow-Away Waterloo was built using 26 repurposed shipping containers offering space of more than 18 sqm. It is part of an environmentally-conscious, innovative and affordable project.
Stow-Away Waterloo was awarded Best Architecture or External Design and Best Property 1-20 Units at the 2019 Serviced Apartment Awards.
Located near Waterloo station, the building’s design focuses on space-efficient models, while guests have access to technology such as keyless entry with a mobile phone, high-speed Wireless free internet access and a dedicated app that enables quick responses to their needs. It also features an independent boutique wine bar and pop-up kitchen called UnWined.
Each studio includes a super-king-size Hypnos bed, Molton Brown toiletries, walk-in shower, free high-speed Wireless free internet access, a desk/dining table and two chairs, smart TV, wardrobe and storage, as well as a fully-equipped kitchenette including a combination microwave alongside a fridge, hob and dishwasher.
Brian Proctor, COO of BridgeStreet, said: “There is a real sense of community here; just steps from your Stow-Away door is a lively market with amazing food from around the world being prepared and barrows selling fresh food. We are pleased to offer such a unique and environmentally-friendly project that reflects the character and energy of the Waterloo area.
“Our goal is to provide a unique residential experience for our guests that features state-of-the-art technology developed and introduced by the joint venture of Stow Projects and Ciel Capital while still feeling like a home away from home.”
