The London EDITION I love fresh flowers in a hotel room, it was super nice to have a personal note and some fresh baked cookies when we checked in too. Yum

The London EDITION Rooms at the hotel are very sleek in design and compact in size. You may want to leave your vast set of trunks behind and pack minimally into a chic Rimowa case

Highs & Lows

  • Berners Tavern — the hotel restaurant is a major stand alone stalwart in the very packed and competitive London scene. It is the perfect place to fold into during your stay for decadent dinners, a breezy breakfast and languid luncheons.

  • The decor — I loved the giant silver egg light shades in the lobby, the illuminated artwork by the lifts and the whole vibe of Berner's Tavern.

  • The hotel room had a very skeleton stocked mini bar (perhaps a new approach post-pandemic?) so if you like to snack and drink in your room I suggest bringing things with you.

  • The rooms also don’t have a huge amount of storage space so pack lightly, this is a place to bring your chic minimal overnight luggage and leave your giant Rimowa vases and 20 piece set of heirloom leather trunks at home.
