There was such a splash around this hotel when it first opened back in 2014 and happily it’s still got that ‘something special’ atmosphere eight years later. For a Central London hotel the things-to-do list is long with a bowling alley, cinema, spa, gym, roof terrace with kitchen garden, bar, restaurant… There’s almost no reason to leave at all. Room rates are pricey , but there’s no need to go for a massive one, the superior category is a decent size, has a lovely queen-sized bed and all are decorated in that instantly recognisable Kit Kemp flair. If it’s a honeymoon suite you’re after however, the terrace suite on the top floor of the building is enormous with floor-to-ceiling windows.
