Staycity officially opens new Wilde aparthotel in London

STAYCITY’s brand new premium aparthotel has been officially opened in central London.

The aparthotel at the Strand, close to Covent Garden, is the first in Dublin-based Staycity’s new luxury brand called Wilde.

Drawing inspiration from the life of famed Irish poet and playwright Oscar Wilde, who is memorialised in a sculpture just a short walk away, the Wilde Aparthotel by Staycity has 106 quirky rooms with imaginative design touches.

Staycity CEO Tom Walsh was by joined by Oscar Wilde’s only grandson, Merlin Holland, for the cutting of the ribbon at yesterday’s official opening ceremony.

Future aparthotels under the Wilde brand are already planned by Staycity in Edinburgh, Berlin and Manchester.
