room2 Chiswick is the world’s first fully net-zero hotel. Surrounded by cafés and boutiques, the green retreat offers a relaxed combination of home and hotel while encouraging guests to embrace a sustainable lifestyle. The hotel, which opened in December 2021, sets a new global industry standard for environmental responsibility in the fight against climate change and proves sustainability doesn’t mean sacrificing style, convenience or comfort. At a time when reducing the impact of climate change is more important than ever, room2 Chiswick is an ideal destination for eco-conscious and responsible travellers looking for the ultimate stay in London.
Using 89% less energy per square metre compared to typical UK hotels, room2 Chiswick is the first hotel in the world to fully account for its entire carbon footprint, making it ‘whole-life net zero’. This means both embodied and operational carbon have, and will be, rebalanced throughout the entire hometel’s lifecycle. All emissions associated with the hometel’s production and construction, materials used, operations, maintenance, refurbishment and including the eventual clearance of the building will equal zero. room2 has also signed the Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism and is committed to accelerating climate action to cut global tourism emissions.
room2 Chiswick embraces leading hardware and software technology from around the world to achieve pioneering energy efficiencies, with some developed in-house. Renewable energy is maximised on-site with solar and ground source heat pumps, which convert 100% of the energy needed for heating, cooling and hot water. Two lab rooms collect data on water and energy use, along with air quality, and learn from guest habits to refine and improve future efficiencies.
Ultra-low flow pressure showers use less water with aerated water fixtures and ultra-energy efficient lighting and appliances are combined with occupancy sensors across the building. The blue roof reduces localised flooding by slowly discharging up to 50,000 litres of rainwater, and the green roof boasts 200 tonnes of soil and wildflowers, planted to increase biodiversity and absorb CO2, along with beehives and bug hotels.
room2 Chiswick has a zero-waste policy and is the first UK hotel to introduce food waste into its in-room recycling bins. Unable to find a 3-in-1 recycling bin in keeping with the hometel’s philosophy for design and simplicity of use, room2 designed and manufactured its own bespoke bin to include waste, recycling and food waste, to ensure 100% of waste is recycled or converted into energy off-site.
Whether staying for two nights or two months, for leisure or for work, guests can expect the relaxed and informal room2 experience throughout their stay. Fully equipped kitchen, living, working and eating area and with both check-in and check-out at 2pm, allowing more flexibility. Plus every guest has access to the gym, bar and restaurant.
Rooms at room2 Chiswick start from £189 per night for two people staying in a snug room.
