Grand Designs: The Best Art Hotels in London
Desperate to impress a first date? In need of a culture fix and a long gossip, martini in hand? Or, dreaming of a treat night away from home following the festive frenzy?
Then, art lovers, cocktail sippers and jet-set travellers rejoice! Our ultimate insider's guide to the very best art hotels in London is just what you're looking for.
With artfully designed rooms, Instagrammable interiors, and on-trend bars and restaurants, these boutique hotels give traditional luxury – and, even the city's best museums and galleries – a run for their money.
Now, all you have to do is book.
Designers Terence and Vicki Conran have transformed a former Victorian printing warehouse into one of Shoreditch’s most popular arts venues, offering – alongside seventeen small but beautifully designed rooms – Tratra, a popular basement restaurant, café and a rooftop bar.
Each of the seventeen rooms is inspired by the style of a different modern architect or design movement. From Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand to Bauhaus and Josef Hoffmann, the interiors are perfectly suited to lovers of art and design.
But don't let the size of the building fool you; this is a little hotel, with individuality at its core. You'll find a yoga mat in the cupboard and breakfast delights downstairs in the Albion Cafe.
