Housed in the tallest building in Western Europe, the Shangri-La Hotel is a real stunner. Think luxury rooms, world-class service and a bar in the form of GONG, which pairs striking interior and luxe cocktails with elevated views and a luxurious swimming pool. When you're done here, head all the way up to The View From The Shard for 360-degree views of the city from 2 viewing platforms.

Hotels with a view? It doesn't get much sexier than The Hoxton's latest outpost. There's over 190 rooms from 'shoebox' to 'biggy' and a variety of bars.

Shoreditch House

The infamous members' hotel from Soho House, this Shoreditch spot is home to a rooftop that's ideal come rain nor shine. If you're able to get through the door, head past 26 bedrooms to check out the pool (or, perhaps, dive in) while sipping on something bubbly.
