Ace arrived in Shoreditch from the US a couple of years ago, taking over a dowdy Crowne Plaza hotel. The look of the spacious rooms is comfortable and a bit bohemian, with wall-to-wall daybeds/sofas, sturdy oak or metal storage units, round oak tables and luxury denim coverings. Furniture and accessories reflect the Ace appreciation of artisans. You might find an Ally Capellino leather change box (her shop is just down the road) or a lovely CF Martin & Co guitar in your room.
The lobby vibe is egalitarian and informal: a long communal table holds computers and there are DJs every night. There’s a cute juice bar, Lovage, a nook of a coffee shop, a bar tucked into a further nook, a flower shop even, and the fine wood-clad brasserie Hoi Polloi. The Ace building also houses a record shop – Sister Ray Ace – and a nightspot and music venue, Miranda. It really doesn’t get hipper than this.

I'm a massive fan of the Ace: it's an uber hip hangout if you're looking to have drinks with friends or just want to tap into the free wifi while doing a bit of work - and I love the fact that on the way down to the Miranda (their basement nightclub), you can see images of Grace Jones plastered all over the walls. Can't get cooler than that.
