Chic Stay: The London EDITION
Ideal for… a stay at London’s hippest hotel & the IT hotel in the city.
What: The London EDITION Hotel
Where: 10 Berners Street, London (right behind Oxford circus)
Quite small, yet cosy. The interiors are all set in such a chic way – wooden walls and floors with a whole lot of natural light. If you don’t feel like you have enough entertainment in the lobby (the lobby is always full and buzzing), the flat screen Samsung TV has a movie menu, TV guide and music (as well as shows the date, time and temperature daily!), – Vogue and GQ magazines were also left in the room.
Incredibly comfortable bed that you can sink into. 9.75/10
Large minimal toilets in white with their own London EDITION branded shampoo and conditioner etc. The shower also has a loofah (plus points!)
Breakfast takes place at Berners Tavern, one of the hottest London restaurants at the moment – not to mention one of the most beautiful breakfast spaces. The menu is simple, yet delicious. I highly recommend their Avocado on toast with poached eggs and a latte.
Their main restaurant is Berners Tavern, which is open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. You can also grab drinks at The Punch room and the Lobby.
One of the coolest minibars I’ve seen – it includes everything from Maltesers, Rice cakes, Jealous gummy sweets, Joe & Seph’s popcorn, Tyrell’s chips as well as other gourmet snacks and a skull vodka bottle.
Pool, Spa & Gym:
They have a gym (as well as PT on request) but no pool or spa.
Price: I stayed in a Deluxe room, prices start at £295
-The hotel is by Studio54’s founder, Ian Schrager
-Marriott Hotel’s cool boutique hotel brother (owned by the Marriott group)
-Every man that works at this hotel is pretty much handsome.
-Don’t be shocked if you see paps waiting outside the hotel, the celebrities love the hotel.
-Two things I wasn’t too happy about – the low closet space and that my room had an onion reek during my stay (a ventilator issue)
