As a travel blogger, I always get questions over on my Instagram where in London is cool to stay when you visit. London is a massive city with ample options for hotels and places to stay. I teamed up with Expedia to share my three favourite my top three great places to stay in London with hopes to make your search just a little easier.

London has a lot of hotel options with personality. You can find anything from Victorian and Edwardian days to very modern and hipster locations. In this post, I would love to somewhat cater to a frequent modern traveller that appreciates design and quirkiness. After all, London is a place of the vast diversity, and you can find any cultural influence in the city.

I picked the hotels that I frequently visit for their chic vibes. I have at some point stayed at all of the hotels below, and as somebody who lives most of the year in London, I have had an excellent opportunity to explore the London hotel scene. Call it perks of the job 🙂

Every suggested hotel designed around a cool concept, and it offers a space for locals and travellers to come together. The bars and restaurants available at each establishment are cool hangout spots, and most of my friends including me visit for dinners, drinks and even dates. The food is good, cocktails even better and service on par. So if you are looking to experience London as a local then keep reading my favourite hotels in London.

The Hoxton Shoreditch

The Hoxton is based in my neighbourhood, Shoreditch. I have been east London based for over ten years and have been coming to the Hoxton for many years.

The hotel offers over 200 room to suit any budget. The call them SHoebox (from £89), Cosy (from £129), Roomy ( from £159) and Concept rooms available at request. These beautifully designed rooms will make you feel inspired to decorate your own space in a chicer manner. The service is lovely here, and if you stay at the Hoxton Shoreditch, you will find the area and all the creatives that live here.

The lobby is open to all and usually packed with people from the area that work remotely. There are a restaurant and bar which are great for dinner and drinks and even after so many years, The Hoxton Shoreditch it’s still one of my favourite spots to stop by!

I love Sanderson for its spacious, quirky design. Located on Berners Street, The hotel doesn’t look like much from the outside, but once you walk in, you will experience a bright, dynamic and creative design. Its white interiors featuring pops of colour make the hotel stand out from the rest.

Depending on your budget, the choice is yours. The mixture between modern and baroque demonstrates deliberate luxury. You can except 300 thread count cotton linens gracing your bed.

The London Edition

I love The London Edition! It indeed gives you a feeling of luxe the moment you step your foot outside its front door.

The London Edition located on Berners Street and not too far from the Sanderson, it offers rooms with an eco-friendly design with a touch of cosy. Not only are their rooms lush but the hotel provides one of the most popular restaurants in London, the Berners Tavern, merging past and future with its warm interiors. I couldn’t even tell you how many paintings are hanged in the restaurant, but they sure do make you feel like you’ve travelled to the past.
