Nobu Shoreditch

4 user reviews 4

Perfectly situated just a stone's throw from Old Street station, Nobu is a no brainer for all the foodies amongst you. As well as dishing up a host of Nobu Matsuhisa's world-renowned sushi and cuisine from their restaurant, the hotel's bar also knocks up cocktails, sake, live music and bites before you retire to bed.

Set inside a former courthouse, this 5* hotel is a stonker of a spot. Harking back to its heritage, Courthouse has maintained and embraced many of the original accents left by the Grade II-listed building. Get your evening off to a cracking start with a drink in the jailhouse bar before moving to the Judge & Jury restaurant where you'll nosh on plates within a police holding cell. 

Dorsett City Hotel

270 user reviews 4

An uber-luxe City hotel, Dorsett City manages to dish up stunning panoramic vistas across London from its 14th-floor terrace bar, Jin Bo Law, whilst still remaining in amongst all the action. Step outside the Aldgate East hotel and you'll find a mass of galleries, markets and boutiques on your doorstep. Although with two restaurants, a 24-hour gym and a rooftop bar and event space, there's really no need to leave.

Apex Hotel

1 user review 5

Apex Hotel is situated in City, giving guests a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of the London streets. Step inside the Tower Bridge hotel and you'll find a spa, 24-hour gym and suave rooms all at your beck and call. Their in-house restaurant and bar, The Lampery, also whips up elegant bites and a tasty afternoon tea.

Incredible cityscape views, a rooftop terrace, a gym and a pool are all up for grabs at this stunning hotel in Canary Wharf. If that wasn't enough, Novotel also touts Bōkan, an award-winning restaurant, as well as being ideally located only a few minutes walk from the underground, with easy access to the O2 Arena and Greenwich.

Ace Hotel

1 user review 4

Gaze out over Shoreditch's busy high street whilst sipping on an evening tipple from Ace Hotel's rooftop bar. Cool factory-esque furnishings and minimalistic rooms offer guests a chic sleep whilst seasonal plates and plant-based elixirs will have you feeling refreshed at one of the best hotels in East London.

The Culpeper

2 user reviews 3

The Culpeper may appear to be a traditional boozer from the street view, however, once inside you'll see that this Brick Lane gem is much more than that. Housing a pub, restaurant, charming rooms and a rooftop garden across four floors, this enchanting hotel is brimming with authentic London vibes. 

Boundary Hotel

3 user reviews 4

Located in a converted Victorian warehouse, Boundary London is a seriously cool and intimate Shoreditch hotel on Redchurch Street. The boutique spot has 17 bespoke bedrooms along with an all-day cafe, bar and rooftop restaurant featuring breathtaking views across the surrounding area. They've even got their own grocery.
