Much loved for its lively location close to cutting-edge street markets, galleries, and bars, this interiors dream of a hotel is set in a converted warehouse in Shoreditch.

Dreamt up by design guru Terence Conran, each of Boundary’s 17 bespoke rooms and suites are inspired by a different designer, in striking styles ranging from Chinoiserie to Modern Italian.

Two ever-fashionable restaurants and a rooftop bar lure stylish locals for drinks and dinner. Breakfast (not included) is served at the hugely popular Albion café on the ground floor – the fry-ups, vegan included, are legendary. Take advantage of priority booking at the clubby rooftop bar, with its 100-year-old olive trees, open fire, and Cuban humidor.

The location is uber-hip, close to exciting street markets, galleries, and bars, though it’s a shlep to get London’s major central sights. Don’t stay here if you’re sightseeing.

Surrounding area

On the edge of the post-industrial chic East End, Redchurch Street is lined with some of London’s liveliest independent boutiques, galleries, and coffee shops.

Brick Lane and Spitalfields markets, along with Columbia Road flower market, are all a few blocks away, while the concept cocktail bars and hipster Vietnamese restaurants of Hoxton and Shoreditch are on your doorstep.
