London hotels in City, Holborn, Clerkenwell and Shoreditch

This area of London is as as eclectic as the city itself. ‘Suits’ gravitate to the City while hipsters show off their tattoos in Shoreditch. Here are the best places to stay around.

South Place Hotel

South Place, City, EC1
Underground: Liverpool St

There was considerable buzz around the South Place Hotel when it opened in 2012; stylish owners brought in interiors doyen Terence Conran to give the hotel a bit of pep with arts installations, confident colours and furniture.
Whilst firmly in business territory, the hotel stays away from stuffy and boring with a lively rooftop bar or a short stroll to Shoreditch.


Threadneedle St, City EC2
Underground: Bank

Offering boutique luxury without skyrocket prices, Threadneedles is a business-orientated hotel that flies way under the radar.
Set in a gorgeous Victorian banking hall, the ornate marble and mahogany has been retained for some grandeur and the restaurant and bar are perfect for the city clientele and Bleisure (Business and Leisure) traveller.

Apex London Wall

Copthall Ave, City EC2
Underground: Liverpool St

The Apex sell is quite simple: great value four-star hotels in great business locations, and this is no different.

Fleet River Bakery

Lincoln’s Inn Fields, WC2
Underground: Holborn

A bakery and a hotel are not the most natural of bedfellows – who wants their hotelier sneaking around at 3am downstairs? But then again, waking up to the smell of fresh cakes, breads and croissants does have its perks…
This is the affordable surprise package in a city of overblown prices and second mortgage rates.

The Hoxton

Great Eastern St, Old St, EC2
Underground: Old St
Promotion rates for a quid aside, this is a cheap and chic design-led hotel within gobbing distance of Spitalfields markets (geddit – gobbing distance) as well as Old Street, Brick Lane and all things hipster nightlife in Shoreditch.
