Frequently Asked Questions

General FAQ's

Answers to frequently asked questions at ark
What is co-living?

Co-living provides a superior way to stay, live and experience cities in comparison to traditional forms of visitor accommodation and housing types, which frequently do not offer the community, convenience and value that people now want. Through combining private studios, shared communal amenity spaces and a host of services previously reserved for high-end serviced apartments and the hotel industry, ARK is more than a roof over your head, it is a community-led members space that you can be proud to call home regardless of your length of stay.

How long can I stay for?

At ARK you can stay for as little as one night, a few weeks or move in for up to 12 months at a time.

It's always best to book your whole stay in advance if you can, as the longer you stay with us, the cheaper it will be. You can either book via our dynamic nightly pricing system for stays of 1-89 nights or take advantage of our monthly bookings between 3-12 months, with discounted rates the longer you stay for.

You can renew as often as you wish, and we will always seek to accommodate however long suits you.

How does payment work and do I have to pay a deposit?

If booking between 1-89 nights, you must pay for your stay in full and in advance.

If booking between 3 - 12 months, you can secure your stay by paying a non-refundable down-payment of £500. This is the first step in your booking process. Your studio is only guaranteed once reference checks have been successfully carried out and either the first month’s membership fee or the full balance for your entire stay has been received by us within the timeframe specified at the time of booking.

Monthly payments for the rest of your stay must also be paid in advance by standing order. The payment date of each month is as shown on your booking confirmation.

What about deposits? Don’t worry - no deposit is required to stay at ARK Wembley. Any costs of damages beyond wear and tear are instead paid when it’s time to move out.

Does my studio come fully furnished?

All our studios are fully furnished, this includes a double bed with mattress, seating area and table, wardrobe, storage units, a kitchenette with combi microwave/oven, hob and fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a fully fitted ensuite bathroom.

Are children allowed to stay at ARK?

Sadly, as much as we love children, we’re an adult only building.
