When staying in hotels I usually stick to the big names because I have loyalty with them so get points and perks etc. However, every so often I’ll stay in a boutique hotel and think to myself “I really need to stay in boutique hotels more often”.
With my recent stay at East Hotel in Canberra, my reignited love for cute boutique hotels with an unrivaled personality got me thinking about all those super trendy ones in London I’m constantly hearing about.
Hoxton Hotel, Holborn
Like most of the hotels in this list, I’ve only ever been to the bar for drinks, however it’s firmly at the top of my list for testing out the hotel itself. It looks completely gorgeous and I adore the Pinterest-worthy style of the interior design and decor. Think exposed brick, subway tiles, and a monochrome colour-scheme interspersed with muted yellows and blues.
Nobu Hotel, Shoreditch
A relatively new one having only opened in 2017, the Nobu Hotel in Shoreditch has captured the attention of many – not only for the guaranteed excellent food in the adjoining restaurant, but for the simplistic yet classy hotel. This is the very first Nobu hotel in Europe, having already successfully opened hotels in North America.
The London Edition, Fitzrovia
The Edition has actually been on my list for a few years now, ever since their heavenly triple-cooked chips from the bar first touched my lips. Also home to the beautiful Berners Tavern – who do an excellent Eggs Benny, FYI – the London Edition is well-known for throwing glamorous fashion parties (I went to the Ben Sherman one years ago), and no doubt their hotel rooms are just as glamorous as the parties they throw.
Ham Yard Hotel, Soho
A design-lovers dream, the Ham Yard Hotel has to be one of the most well-known boutique hotels in the capital. With the hotel featuring a bowling alley and rooftop terrace, the rooms are a riot of colour and personality, with each one individually styled. I long to wake up in a huge fluffy marshmallow bed against a hot pink quilted headboard!
My boss actually stayed at Flemings whilst we were both over in London working in our London office in July (I obvs stayed with my parents), and he said it was one of his favourite hotels in London! Apparently the service is amazing, and the location is unbeatable. I also really love the look of the rooms – classic, classy, yet with splashes of deep rich colours and soft textures.
11 Cadogan Gardens, Chelsea
Surrounded by stuffy hotels so typical of Belgravia and Chelsea, 11 Cadogan Gardens stands out as having a little life in it. It’s in the perfect location for feeling as though you’re living like an actual Londoner (albeit a very fancy Londoner), and you’ll walk out of the hotel to be faced with those beautiful Georgian terraces and just a short wander down to Sloane Square for a bite to eat at The Botanist or Colbert.
Zetter Hotel, Farringdon
I’ve been to Zetter Townhouse in Marylebone where they do incred. cocktails, but I’ve heard such great things about the Farringdon hotel too! This one is a little less luxurious and a little more funky than the others in this list. Think bright bold colours set against the purest white sheets, and rooftop suites with sweeping views over the City.
