Hardly a month goes by these days without at least one new hotel opening in London. The start of December has seen two new openings already and both are new entrants to the capital.
The first was the Motel One London Tower Hill, which opened on 1st December.
The property is the group’s first in England, and follows numerous previous successes in mainland Europe and Edinburgh. The group is renowned for its budget design chic and its attractive locations. Despite its budget appeal, the hotel also manages to dish out a fair amount of luxury. The One Lounge bar is sumptuously decorated with leather furniture and images of jewellery.
The hotel on Minories Road has 291 guest bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. Unlike some of its more expensive contemporaries, the Motel One Tower Hill Hotel provides free access to Wi-Fi.
Amba starts off on the right foot in London
From a London first to a world first, Amba Hotels have opened their first ever property, in Charing Cross.
The Amba Charing Cross marks the first of what is expected to be a global chain of 4-star hotels, including an upcoming property in Marble Arch.
The hotel aims to offer hi-tech amenities that it believes are highly sought after by both business and leisure guests. These include iPads, smart TVs and USB sockets in every room. The hotel is offering free WiFi, which it claims is ‘the fastest, free, unlimited WiFi of any meeting and events hotel group.’
These two new openings illustrate just how much mileage is left in London’s current hotel boom and provide yet further choice to visitors.
