The Futuristic One: The Standard

One of the best quirky hotels in London for couples, The Standard is London's version of NYC's landmark hideaway. Instantly recognisable with a red pill-like lift zooming up and down the concrete building's exterior, the hotel's unconventional designs include subway-tiled bathrooms and tube-seat upholstery, outdoor bathtubs that overlook St Pancras train station and even an in-house librarian manning the books in the retired public library.

The Wacky One: Mama Shelter

For a stay that's both spoiling and inspiring, whether you're sharing plates with friends, sipping cocktails in the garden bar, or decompressing after meetings, Mama has got you covered for both work and play.

The Harry Potter One: Georgian House Hotel

Travel back in time to the 19th century for a truly magical experience within portrait-lined passageways bathed in candlelight, walls splashed with stained glass windows and mighty cauldrons, amongst other curiosities. Looking for hidden gem hotels in London with a hint of mystery? Georgian House Hotel is a spell-binding Grade II-listed chamberhouse tucked away in a quiet street just 10 minutes from Victoria Station. We'd recommend the Enchanted Afternoon Tea for a whimsical feast of lightning bolt scones and beastly bakewells served in an open birdcage.

But it's the hotel's eco-friendly ethos and sustainable philosophy that really sprouts out, with solar panels, sensor LED lighting, water-saving measures, and food waste reduction to reduce its carbon footprint. Budget-friendly and conveniently located, come for the vibes, and stay for the sustainable commitment.
