The Best Hotels In Shoreditch

It’s not often that you walk into a hotel, are escorted to your own personal elevator, and settle into a suite of rooms with a private, jacuzzi-toting roof terrace while a personal valet tops up your Champagne glass, simultaneously massaging your feet with the deft agility and dedication of a Shaolin-trained monk…

…which is a shame.

But a lot of these hotels come close to that, with gorgeous rooftop bars, heated pools, jaw-droppingly beautiful interiors, 24-hour fitness centres, hidden live music bars and fairylit courtyards to their credit. Which is precisely why it’s only these places that we have deemed to be the best hotels in Shoreditch. There’s the bohemian B&B that’s part of Spitalfield’s best-looking pub, and the sleek minimalist aparthotel that runs its own photography classes. Or the members club-meets-hotel with a rooftop pool, and the townhouse that’s done up like its 1724.

So without further ado, feast your eyes on the best hotels in Shoreditch…

Boundary Shoreditch hotel

The late Terence Conran’s boundary-breaking hotel doesn’t just offer (beautifully designed) bedchambers. He also took the liberty of adding in a bar; a restaurant; a grocers; a café; a bakery; and a fairy-lit rooftop orangery. That’s if you ever leave your room, which’ll be decked out with snacks from the aforementioned café, Aesop toiletries, and glossy coffee table books on design… READ MORE

Batty Langley’s

batty langley shoreditch hotel

Coming to you from the people behind Hazlitt’s in Soho, this time-warped establishment is named in honour of the Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen of Georgian interior design, Batty Langley (and if you think that’s bad, spare a thought for his sons Hiram, Euclid, Vitruvius and Archimedes). Brimming with antique furnishings like ornately carved four poster beds, burnished copper showers, and er, wooden toilets, it’s small, homely, and characterful. Best of all, it’s a stone’s throw from some of the best restaurants in the area – and boasts an honesty bar in the cosy downstairs snug for the perfect nightcap afterwards. VIEW DETAILS

Amenities: One small honesty bar – but the design more than makes up for it 
From £179/night
12 Folgate Street, E1 6BX

The Hoxton

The Hoxton has been resting weary, immaculately bearded heads since 2006.

The Culpeper

The Culpeper is an artfully rickety corner pub in Spitalfields, with a great atmosphere and even better drinks – the kind of place you could stay all night. And in fact, you can – because the second floor of the four-tiered establishment is given over to cosy bed and breakfast rooms, where peeling plaster walls are paired with sumptuous beds and en suite bathrooms. The perfect spot to retire to after a romantic evening spent stargazing in the building’s rooftop garden. VIEW DETAILS

Amenities: Great food and drink, regular events and rooftop terrace
Cost: From £120/night – NOTE: Currently the bedrooms are closed due to the pandemic, but you can stay at their sister hotel down the road, The Buxton.
40 Commercial Street, E1 6LP

The Curtain

It may only have been open a year, but The Curtain has well and truly risen. A sleek, six story behemoth of a hotel and members’ club, it’s home to 120 stylish bedrooms; a secret live music bar in the basement; the first UK outpost of Obama-approved soul food spot, Red Rooster; and, as its crowning glory, a rooftop bar and (small, but heated) pool… READ MORE

From £230/night – NOTE: The hotel is currently closed due to the pandemic.

nobu hotel shoreditch

Nobu may have started as a sushi restaurant rather than a hotel, but they’re rolling with it. After all, chef Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa’s not one for professional pigeon-holing (he’s also appeared in the Austin Powers film, Goldmember). This recently unveiled Shoreditch hotel is steeped in Japanese minimalism, with striking architecture softened by natural wood and stone detailing. The rooms are surprisingly restful given its location – thanks in no small part to the Japanese tea sets, walk-in showers and sumptuous linens provided. Oh, and the restaurant downstairs is pretty good, too. VIEW DETAILS

Amenities: Top-shelf restaurant, 24hr gym (with classes/PT) & spa (with virtual reality facials. Really)
Cost: From £207/night
10-50 Willow Street, EC2A 4BH

Leman Locke

VIEW DETAILS

Amenities: Restaurant, bar, gym & meeting spaces
Cost: From £88/night
15 Leman Street, E1 8EN
