Shoreditch House

This old-school property still feels like the cozy private club it used to be.

Shoreditch House

About this Hotel

Price From $116

For years, London's members-only clubs catered exclusively to their elite clienteles. But in April, the East End's Shoreditch House broke ranks and opened 26 rooms to the masses. While this technically means it's now a hotel, the Shoreditch sure doesn't feel like it: Antique telephones, oak tallboy chests, complimentary umbrellas, and bookshelves filled with board games and guidebooks speak to its heritage as a private club. Guests enjoy the same privileges as members, including access to the fourth floor's two-lane bowling alley and the trendy rooftop pool, which has views of the London Bridge.
