If you are passionate about sustainability and art and looking for a platform to showcase your masterpieces, then we would be thrilled to open our doors to the vibrant artistic community in our area, and invite you to exhibit your artwork in our gallery space, at the room2 Belfast Hometel.

This is Belfast’s first hometel with 175 rooms, four collaborative event spaces, a trendy restaurant and bar, a delightful tea experience room and a welcoming lobby.

The Hometel’s design exudes the wit and charm of its people. Embracing the city’s lively music and art culture, you’ll discover playful, locally crafted pieces that forge a deep connection between our guests and the vibrant heartbeat of Belfast.

We’re also proudly blazing the trail towards a greener future as a 100% electric and low-energy hometel. With our unwavering commitment to zero waste to landfill, we leave no trace behind.

In synergy with our commitment to a greener future, we would like to invite local artists to showcase their work in our “One Home” Art Gallery.

The art should reflect our beliefs and values of our planet, our home, our “One Home”.

We’ve made it our business to have a positive impact by empowering others to live sustainably. We are creating a way of living that promotes caring for the planet, the home and the self. Our mission is to decarbonise our home, reduce waste and care for our people and their happiness.

Carbon. Waste. Happiness. Community.
