There is something to suit all budgets among the new crop of London hotels opening in 2015, from 5-star luxury with the re-opening of the Lanesborough following an 18-month renovation to three new affordable but trendy places to stay in Shoreditch.
In spring the Zetter Townhouse Marylebone hotel, a 24-bedroom property on Seymour Street, will become the third hotel within the Zetter Group and the second in the Townhouse brand.
Affordable accommodation is on offer with M by Montcalm Shoreditch London Tech City opening within Will Alsop's 'Doodle' tower in early 2015. CitizenM opens not one but three hotels in London in 2015: Tower of London, CitizenM Shoreditch Village and Holborn. These are added to their existing Citizen M Bankside. In the same market segment, the Z Shoreditch opens in March 2015 within The Bower, a new quarter immediately adjacent to Old Street roundabout.
Nearby, the former magistrates' court and police station on Old Street where the Kray twins once stood trial is being redeveloped into a 128-bedroom luxury hotel.
Living Rooms will open The Laslett in Notting Hill in the summer as its latest venture. The new boutique will be home to 51 bedrooms spread across five Victoria mansions on Pembridge Gardens. www.londontown.com
