From the cutting-edge, contemporary cool of the hottest design hotels to traditional British glamour – and everything in between – London has an abundance of the world’s best hotel rooms, but what’s right for you? We’ve decided to investigate the most stylish rooms at the capital’s most stylish hotels and, from designer Hoxton-cool to international icons, we’ve picked out a hugely diverse selection of the city’s very best hotel rooms.
Having been overseen by Sir Terence Conran himself, this new Conran & Partners project – restaurant, food shop, bakery and rooms – was always going to have a designer’s edge to it. Each of the Boundary‘s 12 guest bedrooms are a homage to legendary designers or design movements and _theBrief’s favourite has to be the simply divine Charles & Ray Eames Room.
Small rooms, shared bathrooms – sometimes amenities aren’t everything and, as their ethos states, The Rough Luxe is a “little bit of luxury in a rough part of London. A little bit of rough in a luxurious London”. There are some rooms with en-suites, including one with a beautiful free-standing copper bath – but the emphasis here is heavily on design, and it’s a breathtaking experience. Part guesthouse, part art project – the Grade II listed King’s Cross house was transformed by acclaimed artist and designer Rabih Hage – all the rooms are a fusion of distressed walls, old and new furniture, and original contemporary artwork.
