PPHE Hotel Group's 'vibrant' hotel brand Art'otel has been chosen to operate the 160-bedroom luxury hotel which is part of the Battersea Power Station development. 

The company, which currently operates six hotels under the Art'otel brand across Europe, today signed a hotel management agreement with Battersea Power Station shareholders Battersea Power Station Development (BPSDC) to run the hotel, which is scheduled to open in 2019. 

Plans for the Battersea Power Station Art'otel include an outdoor rooftop pool and roof garden, restaurant and double height bar with views of the Power Station and London skyline. 

Rob Tincknell, CEO of Battersea Power Station Development Company said: “The selection process to find the right brand and operator was a very competitive and thorough one, involving the leading hotel brands from around the world.  Art’otel was a standout winner, a brand unlike anything we have seen in London to date, and it is particularly fitting for it to have art at the very heart of the brand and the hotel itself.  I am confident that together with Art’otel we will deliver a beyond expectations hotel.”

PPHE's Art'hotel brand is a contemporary collection of hotels which 'fuse exceptional architectural style with art-inspired interiors'.

The brand currently operates two hotels in Berlin, one in Dresden, one in Cologne, one in Budapest and one in Amsterdam with each one associated with a signature artist. PPHE said it was yet to reveal art'otel London's signature artist but it was likely to be an acclaimed local or national one.  

Boris Ivesha, president and CEO of PPHE Hotel Group said: “The Battersea Power Station Development will transform London’s skyline; creating a new destination and hub for local communities, visitors and residents.  As a Company we take pride in opening hotels, restaurants and bars in areas which are embarking on new urban and community journeys and the Battersea Power Station project is a spectacular example of this.  art’otel perfectly complements the shareholders of Battersea Power Station’s vision and we look forward to working together to create a new chapter in London’s history over the next four years.”

Development of the hotel forms part of Phase 3 of the £8bn Battersea Power Station development. Designed by Gehry Partners and Foster & Partners, Phase 3, also known as Electric Boulevard will include 1,300 homes, and a high street lined with shops and restaurants.
