Accor has announced it will open two extended stay Adagio aparthotels in London by 2018.
A 217-apartment property will open on Whitechapel Road in 2016 following the conversion of an office building called Black Lion House.
Two years later, in 2018, the new-build Adagio London Stratford will open on Celebration Avenue as part of the Olympic Park site in the east of the city. It will contain 137 apartments.
Martine Balouka-Vallette, CEO of Aparthotels Adagio, said: “Launching in London is central to the development of the Aparthotels Adagio brand in Europe and globally. London is the place to be for business and leisure.
“Opening in London is integral to our business and has been a priority since Adagio was launched in 2007. We now have the right opportunities to launch Adagio is the city with two exciting openings which will deliver for the burgoening extended stay market in London and Europe.
“Greater availability and increased consumer demand are driving the serviced apartment growth in the UK and Adagio will play a major part of this continued growth in years to come.”
Last month, Accor announced its intention to open an Adagio property in Edinburgh in 2017 (see news, May 26).
