Official star rating:
A period hotel named after a 17th-century writer might sound stuffy, but this eccentric boutique has a warm, quirky vibe that suits the arty crowd that stay here.
This is as far away from a bland, chain hotel as it’s possible to be; rooms are swathed in deep golds and reds with four-posters and grand oil paintings.
This isn’t the place for cutting-edge cocktails or Michelin-starred dining; there’s no restaurant (although the room service menu is excellent).
Instead, it’s about holeing up in the heart of the city, taking breakfast in bed or afternoon tea in the courtyard and savouring the sense of being cocooned from the frenetic streets outside.
An elegant low-rise redbrick set on a quiet cobbled street in the shadow of Bishopsgate’s chrome and glass skyscrapers, in spite of its location the hotel feels peaceful and tucked away. The surrounding area is mostly corporate and office buildings, meaning things do quieten down at night.
The surrounding Spitalfields area offers an excellent museum and markets, and the nightclubs, bars and Indian restaurants of Brick Lane, and Liverpool Street rail station are within walking distance.
