room2 Southampton Hometel couldn’t be better situated. The hotel is just a short walk from Southampton Central train station, and within easy reach of several local attractions, including the historic city centre and the waterfront. The hotel also offers secure on-site parking for those arriving by car.
Setting itself apart from other chain hotels, Room2 features exquisite attention to detail that has gone into every aspect of the design. Featuring a mix of contemporary and retro elements, that you don’t necessarily expect from the exterior, it features bold, stylish furnishings and vibrant artwork with sustainable materials used throughout the building, everything has been carefully considered to create a comfortable and welcoming environment for guests.
All of the ‘bedrooms’ are spacious and functional apartments with integrated living spaces and kitchenettes. This providing guests with the comfort and convenience of a home away from home making it a great option for families that are in need of something more of a bed and bath.
For families, many rooms feature a loft-style additional sleeping space, with twin beds or a double bed, providing flexibility for families with children or groups of friends. On a mezzanine level, it’s good fun for kids with a small staircase and cubbyhole for additional privacy.
The bedrooms include comfortable beds, high-quality linens, and blackout curtains to ensure a good night’s sleep. Guests can also enjoy the convenience of USB charging ports, Bluetooth speakers, and free guest Wi-Fi in every room.
Each room also includes a kitchenette; each kitchen is compact but equipped with modern appliances, utensils, including a fridge, stove, microwave, and dishwasher.
The bathrooms are clean and well maintained, with rainfall showers, organic toiletries, and fluffy towels. Some apartments also feature bathtubs for guests who prefer to soak and unwind after a long day.
The ground floor lounge area, affectionately known as the Living Room, is a communal space furnished with comfortable seating, a fireplace, and a flat-screen TV, providing guests with a cosy space to relax and unwind.
The Living Room also features a Pantry, Bar and dining area where guests can purchase and prep meals.
For business travellers, the Living Room is a great co-working space and there are additional facilities to support this setup.
From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with a warm welcome and made to feel at home. Dropping the formalities of a check in desk, it’s more relaxed with roaming staff in the communal area able to assist on more of a personal level. The staff members were always on hand to provide recommendations for local restaurants and activities, and were quick to respond to any requests I had.
