Snoreditch.

Flattery first thing in the morning is always a winner.

Good night, London.

That shower after a long, cold London day. *heart eyes.*

Might stay in, tbh.

Cosy fireplace vibes in the lobby (there’s a bar and sound system too).

Fake lunch al fresco when it’s cold and drizzly.

Today’s office.

Like having a guy over without having to deal with his snoring.

Thinking of something to write that’s as cool as the stationery.

Highs & Lows

  • Simple but cool design with character.

  • In the core of Shoreditch, perfect for an East London adventure.

  • A tasty light breakfast bag delivered to your room.

  • No bath, so no luxurious long soaks before cocktails and the amenities, although cool and quirky, are minimal.

  • The noise from the lobby and the poor sound-proofing of other rooms sadly makes ear plugs an essential.
