Apex Hotels is to open its third London hotel - the four-star, 184-bedroom Apex Temple Court - on 1 April 2012.
It is situated just off Fleet Street in the conservation area of the Inner Temple, and the group says the hotel's opening rate will start from £129.
Apex Hotels, which currently has seven hotels in the UK (four in Edinburgh, one in Dundee, two in London), is spending £60m on developing its latest property within a building purchased from the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple, which has a history dating back to the 12th century. Much of the original property was destroyed during World War II and rebuilt during the 1950s.
The group's other London hotels include Apex City of London and Apex London Wall Hotels. Last year Apex Hotels was named Small Hotel Group of the Year at the AA Hospitality Awards 2010-2011.
