Shoreditch was a smart choice for Nobu’s first European hotel—the area’s getting cooler by the minute and the hotel’s funky, spiky, ultra-modern architecture brings an edgy vibe to the neighborhood. Shoreditch still feels like you have to be “in the know,” though the cool crowd has definitely discovered it, and they’ve discovered Nobu as wel—not just the swank restaurant that anchors the property but the open-air bar in the back, too. Rooms here are unfussy and play up the Asian influence with wooden slats to cover the windows, furniture that’s low to the ground, and Japanese tea sets. It all feels very urban and new, down to the bathrooms which are tricked out with gold sinks. The restaurant is scene-y, of course, but what can you do? It’s Nobu.
In the Area
Shoreditch is heating up at a rapid rate, and Nobu isn’t the only chic hotel that’s set up shop here. There’s a growing number of cool bars and restaurants to check out, too, starting with Trapeze Bar, a circus-themed bi-level party palace where a snake charmer might wander past on you the dance floor at any moment. Tramshed, a former tram-generator building, now houses a chic chicken-and-steak restaurant from Mark Hix. The art on display here is always on point—keep an eye out for Damien Hirst’s “Cock ‘n’ Bull” installation. You can stop in at any time of day at The Book Club, a former warehouse turned café, restaurant, and exhibition space that the cool kids call home, especially at night when they host “Thinking and Drinking” events. If you decide to leave Shoreditch, the nearest tube station is a five-minute walk from the hotel.
How to Get There
Nobu is an incredible hotel with staff that made my stay a genuine 5* experience. A special mention to Michael, the concierge who went the extra mile in attending to our every need. The location is also great with many options to go out in the daytime or evening.
He is such a lovely personality, made our say enjoyable!!! Friendly and very easy going!!! From the cafe to the bar, he made our stay very interesting. If only because pf francesco i would definitly come back to Nobu.
Thank you to Pedro and the entire team for a wonderful stay! Glad to find this new gem, definitely my new favorite spot.
The rooms are generous in size, the bed is super comfortable. I especially enjoy the desk / sofa setting, perfect for unwinding/dining alone and for work. Actually finished an entire deadline just on this table with convenience outlets for all of my devices.
The abundance of closet space is definitely a plus, especially if you are travelling for business and have different attires.
My colleague unfortunately lost her luggage on the way to London, Fabrizio from the team went over and beyond, located and coordinated the luggage on her behalf and gave her a late checkout.
Stayed a weekend, nice rooms and hotel in general, but the breakfast was not up to the standards of the rest of the hotel. Mind the waiters that don't tell you that the coffee they first ask if you want is superexpensive and not included in the 18 £ breakfast buffet, which do include coffee....
The hotel is very nice, super friendly staff, great service and excellent food.
We loved the location of the hotel, super cool area, lots of nice restaurants
We loved our stay .
Thank you Perdo for making it special
