London is one the most iconic capitals from Europe. It is a city filled with history, and different trends. Today, we will show you the 5 coolest and most unusual hotels in London you have to spend a night!
If you are a design lover, we are sure you that London is going to be your destiny for September. Why? London Design Festival, 100% Design, Decorex International 2018, and we do not need to talk about the great city full of history, amazing and dazzling monuments and buildings.

Qbic Hotel London City – cool cuboids rule
The increasingly popular Qbic Hotel has arrived in London, and it is driving everyone crazy about it! It is not hot to figure out why! If you already went to Amsterdam, you’ll probably recognize a couple of thing, such as the décor! What’s a Cubi, first of all?
A cubi is a group of stainless metal that builds a cube. Who saw this coming? And the funky bedroom décor is absolutely stunning and cool! Besides that, it is also ergonomic, which may change completely our opinion of a night spent in a hotel! Rooms also feature a modern shower room, black-out curtains and even sound-proofing to garante that you’ll have the night of your dreams! Here, the only thing that can be square is your design elements!
Hoxton Hotel Shoreditch
With a funky urban lodge style – think open fireplaces, classic leather furniture, exposed brickwork and the occasional faux moose head – and an unbeatable buzzy atmosphere, the much loved and highly rated 4- star Hoxton Hotel Shoreditch epitomizes the trendy urban cool of Hoxton itself (a hip neighborhood area of the city only a short tube or bus ride from London’s centre) but with surprisingly competitive prices.
The ethos is simple: the rooms are a base from which to work and play in this lively part of the city and the modern hotel rooms are stylish, intentionally fuss-free and functional – but always with a canny and playful eye for details.
From the moment you walk into 4-star highly rated Leman Locke you know the owners have seriously good taste. Oozing luxury and style with bags of personality thrown in, this 22-floor chic London apartment hotel doesn’t just offer a place to stay, it offers a slice of the hipster London lifestyle into the bargain! Located on the easterly edge of London’s Square Mile, within a stone’s throw of Aldgate East tube station (which will easily take you into the very centre via a short tube ride) and the most creative and vibrant areas of Hoxton, Shoreditch, and Hackney.
The design at Leman Locke epitomizes its uber-trendy surroundings – here uplifting pastel pink upholstering and light wooden floors are beautifully juxtaposed with industrial style furniture.
The Exhibitionist Hotel – A Living Art Gallery
With a name like the Exhibitionist, you know this exceptionally rated trendy London hotel isn’t going to be for wallflower types, although I quickly have to add there’s nothing even the tiniest bit seedy about this place! Set in a row of handsomely restored 18th-century townhouses, this is ultra-hip 5-star boutique hotel has a very elegant and luxurious design, just filed with an Aladdin’s cave of striking contemporary art pieces.
The Exhibitionist Hotel is like a communal art gallery of sorts, filled with a mixture of rotating installations as well as set pieces of art.
Live like a true Shoreditch hipster in these gorgeous, newly refurbished loft pads which have two locations in the trendiest part of town (the Mini Lofts are located only an 8-minute walk from Old Street tube station, which will take you into the centre in around 15 minutes and the larger version, the MegaLofts is located a 4-minute walk from Brick Lane and a 7-minute walk from Hoxton Square).
Set on the first floor on an elegant Victorian building situated in the heart of the highly fashionable and vibrant cafe and restaurant strewn area of Brick Lane, forgot the name, these beautiful and already impeccably-rated hip apartments, offer far more than just a place to crash!
A chain hotel like no other this, this hugely popular Dutch hotel group brings its own brand of affordable luxury to London…and what a brand it is! Combining trailblazing technology, an easy-going atmosphere and a quirky, colorful contemporary design you’ll never want to stay in a bland chain hotel again. There are no less than three wonderful versions in London – the original is located in central London’s South Bank, only a 7-minute walk of the Tate Modern museum, Shakespeare’s Globe theatre and the Jubilee Line Underground station, The Tower Hill version is just a 7-minute walk from Southwark tube station and Borough Market and the other is based the trendy hipster East central area of Shoreditch is only 12 minutes’ stroll from Liverpool Street tube station.
