Stylish design is front and centre here, with most of the furniture created by New York-based designers Grzywinski + Pons. As well as a bright and airy living space, there’s also a comfortable sleeping area, a well-equipped kitchen with Smeg appliances and a bathroom with a deluge shower and Kinsey Apothecary toiletries. As a guest, you can enjoy the use of the building’s onsite gym and enjoy a drink while taking in the view at the resident’s cocktail bar. You’ll also be excellently placed to see the city with The Tower of London only a 15-minute walk away and St. Paul’s Cathedral also within walking distance of home. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
The King of Shoreditch
Book The King of Shoreditch now: from £350 per night Once a Victorian bank depository, this giant loft not only offers a location we love, slap bang in the middle of London’s fashionable Shoreditch, but also a bona fide taster of the area’s creative spirit. The fashion and lifestyle stores of Boxpark are under a five-minute walk away, while history lovers can head to Charterhouse, a former monastery. There are a vast array of stylish bars and restaurants to enjoy right on your doorstep – from rooftop terraces to a Michelin-starred wine bar or have a drink on your private patio. From this home’s bold street-art murals and open-plan layout, to the upcycled plant pots, and temple-like main bedroom, this is East London in thrilling microcosm. Crucially, though, there’s also homeliness and luxury here and who wouldn't want to be surrounded by so much art, including Andy Warhol originals? It's a great conversation starter. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Book Cactus Sharp now: from £500 per night Modern, chic and highly photographable, everything you need for a comfortable stay is neatly parcelled up into this studio home. Designed to offer you everything you might need for an independent stay – including a well-equipped kitchenette – it's also packed full of thoughtful touches. We love the pastel tones, the king-size canopy bed and stylish bathroom tiles. Relax after a day out in the city with a strong rainfall shower, and then snuggle up in bed to stream your favourite shows on TV. And don’t forget you can make use of the aparthotel’s lavish facilities, from the tropical-styled restaurant and bar to the co-working space and gym. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
Book Funky Fresh now: from £500 per night With its funky blue kitchen and pastel paint, this Southwark studio is a colourful base from which to explore London’s many sights. Perfect for a solo traveller or a couple seeking a chic city break, this cool, compact pad will make you feel right at home. Located right by the iconic Tower Bridge, this flat’s huge windows offer stunning views over the city, best enjoyed with your morning coffee at the bistro-style kitchen table. Fitness lovers will appreciate the building's yoga classes and gym facilities, while those needing to catch up on some work can head straight to the co-working space or meeting rooms. With nearby Bermondsey’s streets brimming with breweries, boutiques and restaurants and Southwark’s river path leading to the Tate Modern and Borough Market, there’s plenty to keep you entertained. After a day of sightseeing, come back home for a luxurious soak under the rainfall shower before settling in for a relaxing night’s sleep in the dreamy canopy bed. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
Book The Aquinas now: from £250 per night A short walk south of the Thames, you'll find Victorian and Edwardian terraced houses tucked away on a calm street. In the shadow of the South Bank, this home offers peace and quiet among all the excitement of London’s cultural hub. The lush, trailing greenery of your private garden leads you past the patio and barbecue, towards French doors opening into the home. Stepping inside, bay windows shed glorious light upon a surprisingly modern, open-plan living space. A pop of orange from the feature wall reminds you that you’re still right in the heart of this colourful city, even in these serene surroundings. Now, would you rather relax with your cup of tea on the vintage leather armchair or the contemporary corner sofa? The traditional versus modern decor of this home seems to echo the neighbourhood around you. The thatched roof of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre sits just along the river from the brutalist architecture of the National Theatre. Local pubs serving up Sunday roasts are only a stroll away from rooftop cocktail bars. And if you still want more, you’re so close to the tube that you’ve got the entire city at your disposal. Sleeps up to 5 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
