Best hotels in Shoreditch
Design mogul Sir Terence Conran’s Boundary Project warehouse conversion was a labour of love. Its restaurants – which include Albion, one of the best openings of 2009, a downstairs fine-dining establishment and a rooftop bar – are high-quality but relaxed, and all 17 bedrooms are beautifully designed.
Famous for its low rates (including some publicity-garnering £1-a-night rooms), the Hoxton deserves credit for many other things. First, there’s the hip Shoreditch location – hip enough for Soho House to have taken over the downstairs bar-brasserie a couple of years ago. Then there are the great design values (the foyer is a sort of postmodern country lodge, complete with stag’s head).
The most recent hotel opening from Soho House members’ club might even be the best, perfectly catching the local atmosphere with its unfussy, slightly retro design. The rooms feel a bit like urban beach huts, with pastel-coloured tongue-and-groove, shutters and swing doors to the en suite showers.
Situated in London, the Premier Inn London City (Old Street) features stunning views across the city skyline, from Olympic Park towards the Shard.

Some say Shoreditch has had its day, that London’s trendy brigade have moved on. If you go to Brick Lane Market, though, it doesn’t look that way. The weird and wonderfully dressed hordes keep coming to the rough triangle made up by Old Street, Great Eastern Street and Shoreditch High Street, packing into ramshackle bars and independent shops.
