The hip East London neighbourhood of Shoreditch has its fair share of cool places to sleep in, from the Ace Hotel to the Hoxton Hotel, but the newest and by far the trendiest, is this stylish new outpost from Japanese chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa and actor Robert De Niro. The architecture is cutting edge, all striking steel and glass; it simply screams luxury. As do the rooms. The bathroom sinks are gold – no joke – along with the showers and taps. The beds are huge and forget about bathrobes – at Nobu hotels it’s all about the complimentary kimonos. Naturally, a traditional Japanese tea-set is included in each room alongside a room service menu that specialises in sashimi. Better though than all this is the Nobu Shoreditch restaurant and bar downstairs, set to become London’s new Chiltern Firehouse in terms of popularity, and serving up Nobu’s trademark Japanese-fusion dishes. Yellowtail with Jalapeño anyone? Doubles start at around £195,
The coolest hotel in London's hippest village, hands down!
