Native Places has announced the opening of its newest property in one of London’s most historic locations. Opening its doors officially in 2024, Native King’s Wardrobe, St Paul’s will mark the seventh aparthotel in the brand’s portfolio which spans the UK, and its fourth aparthotel in the capital.
Formerly known as the Royal Wardrobe in the 14th century, Native King’s Wardrobe, St Paul’s served primarily as a storehouse for the King’s state and ceremonial robes, as well as those belonging to members of the Royal Family. Breathing new life into the area whilst celebrating its fashionable history, Native Places introduces a revived, spacious, and characterful place to stay right in the heart of the City of London.
The aparthotel is spread across seven Grade II listed townhouses inhabiting a private courtyard just behind St Paul’s Cathedral. There are one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, 92 in total, each with fully equipped kitchens, living and dining areas, and workspaces.
The aparthotel is also home to COUNTER; a lively neighbourhood space developed by Native Places which can also be found in its properties in Edinburgh and Manchester. COUNTER King's Wardrobe marks the brand’s debut in London.
