Andaz Hotel

A faded railway hotel until its £70m Conran overhaul in 2000, the red-brick Great Eastern became in 2007 the first of Hyatt’s new Andaz portfolio. The new approach means out with gimmicky menus, closet-sized minibars and even the lobby reception desk, and in with down-to-earth, well-informed service and eco-friendliness.

The bedrooms still wear style-magazine uniform – Eames chairs, Frette linens – but free services (local calls, wireless internet, healthy minibar) are an appreciated touch. Restaurant options include British nosh at the 1901 restaurant in a magnificent former ballroom with a stained-glass dome or Japanese at Miyako.

The cinema – set in the basement Masonic Temple, a feature of the original hotel – appropriately favours horror movies.

The Andaz is a gorgeous hotel just by Liverpool Street, with sweeping staircases contrasting with the modern atriums and lobbies. The secret temple is absolutely incredible, one of the most fascinating things I've seen in London in a long time. The rooms are done out excellently, and though I've not stayed (just peered in) they all look very clean and comfortable, with personalised twists throughout.


I use the beauty rooms in The Andaz and feel proud every time I walk through the door. There is always such a warm welcome that awaits from the ever friendly and accommodating staff. The place smells fresh and luxurious so you can also tell immediately that it is well kept. The loos are always kept to the best standard and as you walk around, you get the aromas of all of the different restaurants they run. Would recommend anyone visiting London to stay here!


The Temple Cinema takes place in a hidden Masonic temple upstairs at the Andaz Hotel - a marble lined, candlelit room with an ornate ceiling and checkerboard floor. The intimate screenings are organised in conjunction with the East End Film Festival, and have a different theme each month. This month is 'Trouble in Suburbia', and last night we were treated to David Lynch's Blue Velvet (1986). Tickets include a drink (wine, beer or soft drink) and a cup of popcorn (ours was inedibly greasy). We received a friendly welcome and, being early, grabbed a seat right at the front. Others may not have been so lucky with their view or comfort levels. All in all a really fun night! 


5 star 'Andaz London' revealed their incredible festive installation with the help of Manifesto Studios. Showcasing 7 perspex green bow bells, suspended high in the ceiling of the hotel lobby. Each bell resonates a story of the East End personality - Playing homage to the architecture, markets, fashion, art scene and its people such as the Kray Brothers to the Cockneys. 

The evening also boasted a green inspired menu from the Green Bell Cocktail which consisted of Basil, Cucumber, Elderflower and Tanqueray Gin.  Alongside delicious canapes such as Smoked Salmon, Caviar and Cream Fraiche on a Pea Blini - Which tasted like a treat, The perfect festive canape. 

The super cool installation offers an interactive experience where if you tweet/share across social media with #SoEastLondon and tag @AndazLondon you can hear the bells ring a ding ding. If you’re in the area of Liverpool Street. I urge you to stop by the Andaz Hotel to see and (hear the bells) in action.
