Best in Class

About the project:

MERLYN ticks all the boxes for award-winning Staycity group

The Challenge

All the style of a chic hotel combined with welcoming, home-from-home practicalities lie at the heart of an aparthotel stay – and no one brings this experience to life better than Dublin-based, privately-owned Staycity Group. The award-winning operator is leading the way for business and leisure travel across Europe with a growing estate of nearly 6,000 apartments across 5 countries including Berlin, Dublin, Edinburgh, Frankfurt, London, Paris and Venice. The group has two unique brands – a core collection and Wilde Aparthotels, a premium brand inspired by Irish playwright and poet Oscar Wilde's musing, "I have the simplest of tastes. I am always satisfied with the best."

Francis Street, Dublin, a Wilde Aparthotel with a beautifully crafted, frameless showerdoor.

Part of Staycity's success story lies in delivering 'the best' and this means modern facilities and high levels of customer satisfaction. Intrinsically linked to this is the selection of design-led interiors in every apartment. From well-equipped kitchens - to super-comfy bedrooms and sleek bathrooms - no detail is overlooked. The result… a stylish and practical haven. The very best of both worlds.

Mark Street, Dublin, – just one of the aparthotels we have fitted out with our exclusive Series 8 showerwalls. Series 8 is fitted across all Wilde Aparthotels across Europe.

The Solution

Staycity sets the bar high when it comes to interior design and looks to forge relationships with like-minded partners. MERLYN has supplied its stand-out Series 8 collection since 2018 to complement stylish bathrooms across the UK, Ireland and Germany.

For the Wilde Aparthotels, a touch of luxury was required to enhance the Grohe rainfall showers and the frameless Pivot and Inline doors were a perfect fit. Benefiting from 8mm glass and a height of up to 2,000mm the frameless design is elegantly minimalist. A chrome, one piece hinge and towel rail handle has been beautifully crafted to allow easy access into the shower. The lavish bathroom doesn't compromise on safety either with MERLYN's slip-resistant shower trays, meticulously tested to ensure the well-being of Staycity guests.

The Result

It's not just Series 8's design aesthetic that makes it a great fit for Staycity, the ongoing service provided by the team at MERLYN, the far-reaching testing standards adhered to, the collection's durability and the wide range of spare parts available make it a great 'best in class' option.

"Being best in class means we have to work with like-minded partners and MERLYN has been with us since day one. Not only does their Series 8 collection fit our design aesthetic, we can also be confident that we are installing a high-quality product that has been built to last."
