During the Flavour Venues & Events September 2023 London research trip, we had the pleasure of staying at The Gate Hotel. This luxury aparthotel exceeded our expectations and provided us with a quiet and very comfortable stay in a bustling part of the City. This Aldgate based property has excellent transport links and is walking distance from City business hubs, plus popular locations such as Tower Bridge, Brick Lane, and Shoreditch. Despite its busy location, The Gate provides an atmosphere of serenity, plus a very warm welcome.

The Gate Hotel London boasts a strong collection of 189 apartment bedrooms. Our Superior Apartment had excellent soundproofing and offered fabulous views of the surrounding area. The design of the room made fantastic use of the space, comfortably including a bathroom, kitchen, dining area, TV lounge and King-size bedroom in a 32 sqm area. Welcome touches such as a Smart TV, Nespresso coffee machine, safe, iron and a rainfall shower provided a home-from-home for us business travellers. Conference delegates and tourists alike would find everything they need inside their pleasantly decorated apartment, including a sofa bed for extra guest capacity. Their portfolio of bedrooms ranges from compact studios to The Residence; a generously proportioned space featuring 2 bathrooms and bedrooms, which is ideal for families.

We’ve previously booked events at The Gate, so we were delighted to meet with Senior Sales Executive Andrea Andreu to get an updated tour of their event spaces. The venue includes a Members Lounge and Terrace, which can be hired for private and corporate events. The space is lavishly decorated with original and new mid-century furniture and features a collection of art curated by The Maddox Gallery. There’s a bar, dining area and lounge, which can be utilised for a range of event options. The room offers plenty of natural light and can be set up for private dining events, meetings, parties, networking and more. The adjoining outdoor terrace is a beautiful sunny spot with great views across the city. An oasis of natural woods and foliage, this alfresco area is ideal for barbecues, cocktail events, and summer parties. The 5th floor Members Lounge and Terrace are wheelchair accessible via elevators. These versatile event spaces have a selection of unique catering options for private events and can be hired with capacities ranging from 20 to 80 guests. With semi-private hire options starting at £2,000 minimum spend, they offer excellent value too.

The comfort and wellbeing of both short, and long-term guests of The Gate is paramount. In addition to offering healthy, energising breakfasts and a selection of meals cooked on-site at their Maple restaurant, there’s a range of wellness programs available to guests as well. Their boutique gym features state-of-the-art Technogym equipment and even Peloton bikes. With a stellar range of equipment, and even yoga classes at the gym or on the terrace, guests can start their days in fine form.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Gate and have no doubt our clients will too. The team were helpful and attentive. The room was peaceful and well facilitated. The event space was beautifully fitted and offered a wealth of event possibilities. We can confidently recommend this fabulous aparthotel for group bookings and corporate events.
