Irina Kikina

A selection of interesting design hotels and the cheapest accommodations in the British capital famous for its high prices for putting a roof above your head.

Hamstead Village Guesthouse

A stand alone, quiet house in the elite neighborhood of Hamstead, a Victorian building of the XIX century. Annemarie van der Meer and Jim Conwell, a husband and a wife, take care of it. This is a typical toy house with a folding sink and a bed, sliding out of the antique wardrobe. In this dream house there is a small garden, where you can have breakfast for just £7. There is also a studio with a kitchenette, which means you can stay there longer than in typical hotels. The only disadvantage is that the owners actually live in the same house, so be ready for their stuff to be everywhere.

The Boundry

The Boundry designer hotel is found in the trendy Red Church Street in Shoreditch. The ground floor is taken by a café and Albion shop selling expensive delicious bread. The building is a Victorian house remodeled by the architect and interior designer Terence Conran.
This hotel represents the international Design Hotels chain. You’ll be emerged in the history of culture throughout the 17 rooms of the two-storey hotel. Each room has a unique design reflecting different artists and art style from the Young British Artists to the Bauhaus style. There is a restaurant and bar of the same name featuring beautiful panoramic views, fire-oven, grill and adorable garden, courtesy of the landscape designer Nicola Lesbirel. The terrace is open for guests from March 30 through October 30, weather permitting. You can follow the terrace schedule on The Boundry Twitter.

The Town Hall Hotel & Apartments

This Hotel & Apartments can be found in the East End not far from the Benthnal Green station. The Corner Room and Viajante restaurants are available and everything seems to evolve around the culinary experience. Here you can enjoy such an unexpected but delightful room service as your own Chef. For example, if you are here for a couple’s romantic getaway, your personal Chef will prepare a special meal just for you, so you don’t have to leave the room.
The hotel features a special, right in time for the musical festival Field Day scheduled for June 2 – a room, breakfast for two at The Corner Room and festival tickets, all for £195. This offer is for the guests staying at The Town Hall Hotel & Apartments for at least three nights.
A remarkable fact about the hotel: the most emotional and sad scenes from Joe Wright’s Atonement movie were filmed here. Walk in to experience this, no need to book a room.
Price per night: £154-204.

St Martins Lane Hotel

St Martins Lane Hotel is an architectural and interior marvel, which was designed by Philippe Starck. Situated in the very centre of the city, this luxurious hotel offers a lot to the seekers of new adventures and sensations. According to the owners, the concept of the hotel sounds like this: a glamourous theatre hotel. Starcke designed the hotel with a distinctive chic. Here, you will be offered the rooms with private gardens, gold plated chairs and famous life size chess. They also have classic rooms with light bedrooms, milk glass lamps and white bed linens.

Hoxton Hotel

Hoxton Boutique Hotel received the award 'The best hotel of the year' three times according to The Guardian and The Observer Travel Awards. No surprise here, this hotel is perfect in all main categories: location (almost at Hoxton Square), design (English design) and prices (comparatively low). The everlasting problem of London – small living spaces – is triumphantly solved here: designers cleverly got the most of the available space and fit not just a bed but also a small lounge spot with a TV. The Hotel has the restaurant Hoxton Grill where Fridays attract loud crowds. Rumor has it that the breakfast here includes the tastiest pecan rolls ever.

Boutique Hostel Palmers Lodge

Boutique Hostel Palmers Lodge is a boutique hostel. To be honest, I had no idea such hostels existed. For all that it has to offer, this is a place for a true backpacker, someone who doesn't want to pay much and is ready to use the common area shower, but at the same time wants everything to be nice.
In London, there are two hostels like this one. The first one is a little far from the centre, near the metro station Willsden Green. The second one is a little closer, not far from the station Swiss Cottage, in a very nice mansion, that looks like a log cabin on the inside. There are two types of rooms: one with bunk beds, for a bigger group, and the other one for two people, with a private shower. Pool, bar and fireplaces - as it should be in the best English houses.

Сlink Hostel

Clink Hostel is located in the city center, next to the King’s Cross train station. If you arrived here from Paris by train or going to, let’s say, Amsterdam after stopping in London – this is the best lodging option for you. This is also the best hostel for girls. The rooms have a hair dryer, a luxury for a low cost hotel.
There are two hostels in London. The one called Clink 78 takes a former courthouse with 200 years of history. The owners take it light-hearted and are more than happy to utilize the cells previously used to imprison suspects. Clink 261 is based in a more modest building. This is a true backpack hostel where guests are sitting by the fireplace sharing stories about their travel experience. Booking two-three months in advance is recommended.

YHA Hostel

Situated in the very centre of touristy London, near Oxford Street, this hostel with a strange name YHA will be the perfect fit for those who are in town for the first time and want to see City's main attractions. Based on good reviews and high ratings, it will also catch an eye of the fans of bright interior colors, shoppers on Oxford and Regent Streets and visitors of Chinese Restaurants in Soho.

54 Boutique Hotel

A small boutique hotel “54” is located in a typical Edwardian Era building. It has only 26 rooms. The hotel is proud of its proximity to the wonderful museums, Victoria and Albert Museum and Natural History Museum, as well as to one of the oldest department stores Harrods. Not far from there, in the neighborhood of Knightsbridge, Hitchcock once lived. That's also where Princess Diana used to love to do her shopping.
