room2 Southampton experience a home from home feeling

Are you looking for a luxurious but inexpensive overnight stay within Southampton before you board a cruise? Then I highly recommend room2 which is located near the town centre and the port of Southampton.

room2 is the world’s first luxurious 4 star hometel brand which offers all the comforts of home with the service of a hotel. Their hometel within Southampton has 71 spacious rooms comes complete with a fully equipped kitchen, spacious bathroom, dining area, television, sofa and a large king size bed all of which is like a home living experience. Some rooms overlook Queens Park and others the harbour. Simply room2 is a place to live, not just stay for the night.

I was kindly gifted a stay at room2 on a press related basis to show me that hometels are much better than hotels.


In 2014 the original room2 concept was conceived and in late 2016 they launched their Hammersmith Townhouse. room2 understands peoples accommodation needs from a bed to a kitchen.

room2 was founded by two brothers Rob & Stu who come from Hammersmith area. On there travels they were tired of staying in soulless accommodation, and decided to create room2 to bring unique staycations.

Presently room2 can be found within Chiswick, Hammersmith and Southampton. However by 2030 they hope to have opened up 5000 hometels across the UK.  

room2 Southampton is ranked ๐—ป๐—ผ.๐Ÿญ ๐—ต๐—ผ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—น ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—ฆ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ฝ๐˜๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ง๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฝ๐—”๐—ฑ๐˜ƒ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ผ๐—ฟ and has even won TripAdvisor Travellers Choice 2021 award.
