Located in cosmopolitan centres across Europe - current locations include Amsterdam, Berlin, Cologne and Budapest - each Art'otel property provides a cultural, gastronomic and social hub for its guests.
Art'otel London Battersea Power Station marks the first UK property in the brand's portfolio. And what an entry!
Situated in London's new Battersea Power Station development, the hotel lies adjacent to the iconic Battersea Power Station and set amongst the shops, restaurants and bars of Electric Boulevard.
With 164 bedrooms, 4 restaurants & bars, a public art gallery, a rooftop pool and event & meeting spaces, Art'otel London Battersea offers a glut of activities for both leisure and business guests. And for those with an eye for art (and In keeping with Art'otels artist theme), the hotel's interiors are designed by award-winning Spanish designer, Jamie Hayon.
Having previously implemented AV technology into Art'otel's Amsterdam property, Airwave were delighted to once again, work with the Art'otel brand.
On this occasion, Airwave was tasked to provide a premium guest entertainment system, incorporating a comprehensive portfolio of content options:

No premium content offering is complete without a line-up of premium Sky channels. This was implemented via a Sky Select Bright Box, delivering content via the hotel's comms room - meaning no requirement for in-room hardware.
Sky's HD content looks great on the 50-inch Samsung 690 Series hospitality displays, desk-mounted in each guestroom. An Otrum Mirage interactive information system was deployed on each TV providing an intelligent platform for the customisation of the display's guest-user interface.
This included a number of pages, including access to hospitality certified Google Chromecast, cloud-based VOD app, Airtime, and a series of information pages.
PMS integration was also included in the implementation, offering a number of additional features such as personalised greetings and messages via the TV and room check-out.
A number of digital signage displays were onboarded with Otrum signage software and installed in various locations throughout the hotel. This included:
- 10 x Philips 10-inch BDL4551T smart signage screens, installed outside the hotel's meeting rooms.
- 2 x Samsung 55-inch QBR Series displays
The signage displays can be used for a multitude of purposes, including (but not limited to): wayfinding, news & weather RSS feeds, F&B and facility promotions, and of course – the displaying of art….
