London is so much fun that it doesn’t really matter where you stay. There is so much to see that visitors will no doubt only need somewhere to rest their head at night. However, there is an amazing selection of hotels in the capital – something for every taste. I’ve put together a list of my personal favourites that are either a little quirky or offer something truly special.
BLAKES HOTEL Is in the heart of Chelsea, away from the hustle and bustle and tourist traps of central London this is still definitely a hot location. The decor is exotic and rich with rooms so decadent they resemble a movie set.
SHANGRI LA AT THE SHARD This isn’t my favourite decor. But the views of London from anywhere in this hotel are unbeatable and luxury is guaranteed.
SHOREDITCH HOUSE The rooms are cute but tiny. Access to Shoreditch House (part of the Soho House group) makes it all worth while as you have access to the rooftop pool and a selection of bars and restaurants. Plus it’s located in super cool East London.
ACE HOTEL SHOREDITCH Located in the heart of the area on Shoreditch Highstreet you won’t be dissapointed by the vibe of this place. It’s a super cool hangout with a great restaurant and bar plus the rooms are really nice. Perfect if you are looking to head out on an alternative East London weekender.
HAM YARD HOTEL The list wouldn’t be complete without somewhere in Soho. The location is super central and this part of the city carries so much soul. Ham Yard Hotel has it all, from a rooftop bar and fine dining restaurant to a library for afternoon tea.
