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 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.
