Doors open to SACO’s new brand, as Leman Locke is officially open.Monday 24 October 2016 by Florence Evans Today Leman Locke by SACO, the first of our new brand of lifestyle aparthotels, officially opens it's doors to guests.
Leman Locke is the first of its kind, located in Aldgate, East London. Created for guests who want to experience the original and authentic, Locke offers something truly unique - the best of boutique hotels combined with the space, freedom and comfort of serviced apartments.
Leman Locke offers 168 apartments spread across an impressive 22 storeys, comprised of 105 studios and 63 one bedroom suites. Almost double the size of a typical boutique hotel room – at a generous 29sqm- and bathed in plenty of natural light from floor to ceiling windows, the suites offer a spacious environment to relax in. The suites have been designed with a bespoke L-shaped sofa as the focal point rather than the bed, providing guests with a place to live, not just to sleep.
Kinsey Apothecary toiletries are supplied in all apartments
Don’t worry, we know sleep is important – that’s why the suites boast a seriously comfortable bed. Guests will also be able to make themselves at home with the fully equipped kitchen, Apple TV and ultrafast free Wi-Fi – all the essentials for the modern traveller.
And if the suites aren’t enough space, Leman Locke also offers two meeting rooms - known as the Locke ‘Labs’ - available for a day or half a day to liaise with clients, hold productive meetings or have brainstorming sessions.

The building boasts a gym for those who want to maintain an active lifestyle during their stay, and for that all-important relaxation time, meditation zones known as Locke ‘Coves’ are available for guests to use.
Leman Locke will be the first of SACO’s properties to provide an onsite eatery, in the form of an all-day dining experience known as Treves and Hyde. The restaurant will be open throughout the day, serving everything from healthy breakfasts in the morning, through to lunch, dinner, and evening drinks. Treves and Hyde will provide Leman Locke with the social immersion associated with the lifestyle hotel experience, whilst serving as a neighbourhood oasis and delivering a dynamic dining experience to East London. Leman Locke will also be the venue of regular events for both guests and residents of the local area, such as gin tastings, hackathons, yoga classes and more.
Studios and suites are fully equipped for any stay.
Prior to opening, Leman Locke was used as the venue for the Le Book connections afterparty, an event held by the organisation hailed as the ‘bible’ of the image industry with of course, music pumping until the early hours. On the 27th of October, Leman Locke is set to be the official accommodation partner of the Unsigned Music Awards, which recognises the achievements of unsigned and independent artists.
