October 1, 2019 – Compass Hospitality is set to make a debut in London through the signing of Arosfa Hotel, which has been recently acquired by Singapore-based Buxani Group. The Arosfa Hotel will be Compass Hospitality’s 16th hotel in the UK, further establishing the hotel chain’s commitment to consolidate its footprint in Great Britain.
A Grade II-listed Georgian townhouse, the Arosfa Hotel dates back to 1780 and was a former home to the famous Pre-Raphaelite artist Sir John Everett Millais. The boutique hotel houses 17 charming bedrooms and enjoys exceptionally central location in the historic Bloomsbury district of Fitzrovia, a short walking distance to major landmarks in the area including The British Museum, Oxford Street, University College London, and Regent’s Park. The hotel also benefits from excellent transport links; London Underground tube network, as well as three of London’s busiest railway stations – London Euston Station, London King’s Cross and London St Pancras International – are all within walking distance from the hotel. The last of the three railway stations also connects London with major cities in Mainland Europe such as Amsterdam, Brussels, and Paris.
“We are thrilled to welcome the Arosfa Hotel into our diverse portfolio of projects,” says Kishore Buxani, Founder and CEO of Buxani Group. “This strategic expansion in London marks our third hotel in the UK managed by Compass Hospitality since last year and highlights our robust confidence in the market.”
Harmil Singh, CEO of Compass Hospitality, added “On the back of encouraging performance across our UK portfolio, we are happy to expand and to set foot in the Capital. We continue to be committed to the UK market and we are eyeing further expansion in the coming months.”
