Overview

Ostentatious hotel and members' club in the City with no less than 10 restaurants as well as its own barber shop, hammam, and underground vault

The Lowdown

Over-sized, over the top, and almost ludicrously overflowing with options—ten restaurants, a barber shop, six-stage hammam experiences—The Ned is not for the faint of heart. Housed in a former bank in the City, The Ned went from a Grade I-listed building to London’s most see-and-be-seen spot for hip crowds, City bankers, and anyone who appreciates spectacular architecture. Plenty of details from the bank remain, including wooden teller’s booths that have been turned into restaurant seating, and the décor nods to the past while keeping modern comfort a priority: old-school paisley prints cover headboards and rotary phones sit on bedside tables, but WiFi is free and there are cocktail-making supplies in the roll-top drink cabinets. Whether you need a steam, a massage, a manicure, a shave, or a makeover, there’s a venue to do it in at The Ned, and the sheer variety of restaurants, from Jewish deli to Parisian café to Venetian brasserie, means there’s something to please everyone. The jaw-droppingly beautiful spaces that house them are worth the price of admission alone.

In the Area

The City of London is an increasingly popular area in which to bed down, thanks, in part, to proximity to sights like St. Paul’s Cathedral and the London Mithraeum (site of a Roman temple) but there are lots of good eating and drinking options within walking distance of the hotel. Pop over to Gordon Ramsay’s all-day Bread Street Kitchen for everything from hearty breakfasts to pre-dinner cocktails. It’s all too easy to while away an afternoon at The Oyster Shed, on the banks on the Thames, what with its has fab water views, local craft beer, and a menu heavy on fresh seafood. The heated rooftop garden at Coq d’Argent is another popular choice for a rendezvous over classic French food and a bottle or two of wine; it’s just across the street from the hotel. Exploring the rest of London is easy thanks to the Underground station just by the hotel.

Awesome bar and setting
Reviewed 1 day ago

...a great place with an incredible atmosphere...and huge. Great if you somebody who’s a club member (so cool “tab cards”). Fantastic drinks: an old fashioned or a more girlie drink...not an issue. Excellent music, too

Just ok

I stayed here over Bank Holiday with 2girlfriends, we stayed in the Stairwell Suite.
The room was ok - literally in the stairwell of the stairs that take to you the service entrance of the other floors. It was all a little underwhelming - save your money and book a large room instead (which i have also stayed in and was beautiful)
This Stairwell room gains you access to the Rooftop, Spa and Vault Bar.
The staff in the Vault were so rude that we left, as were a few of the staff on the Rooftop and The Nickel Bar. I felt like i wanted to remind them that they worked there not owned the place!
The price you pay for a room the staff should treat guests same
I made a complaint due to some staff being so rude, the lady who checked us out was LOVELY and very apologetic and removed the service charge for the room. I also got an email from The Ned apologising.
Such a shame as we were there to celebrate an engagement and wedding, my two friends and I would not return.

Overrated, too loud, average food and too pricey

I visited The Ned for dinner as I wanted to see what the ‘hype’ was. I was disappointed. The staff were very lovely and the building itself is nice but that’s it. The food was so average. For one glass of champagne and ravioli, I paid £47! The ravioli you can buy in Tesco is tastier than this. Truly isn’t worth the money to get food here.

Rude woman on the door

We went to the Ned on Sunday and found the place to be very nice. The staff inside were all wonderful. The only problem I had was with the woman on the door with an iPad who gave her name as Jilly. As we approached the entrance it was busy and a great many people were walking straight in but she stopped myself and my wife and asked if we had a reservation as there was a “feast” taking up most of the establishment. I told her that our friends we were meeting had booked. She searched for the booking but could not find it. We said that we’d just wait for them at the bar but she made us stand there awkwardly and embarrassingly for some moments before eventually relenting and telling us we could go in to have a drink at the bar, as we had already suggested. Our discomfort was more pronounced as we were the only non white people going in amongst many.
Jilly left a bad taste for us what for what was otherwise a wonderful birthday celebration.

One night stay over whilst in London!

Booked to stay over as we were in London for a Ripper tour. I have to say, this hotel offers you everything. The amenities in the rooms are amazing, they have covered everything you may have forgotten to pack. The room was sound and we could not hear anything outside the room. You really dont have to leave this hotel, there are so many restaurants to choose from, we ate in Millies but will do a separate review for this. If you stay over you get access to the club downstairs, and what a night we had, after eating dinner, we went down for a few extra drinks and to dance into the early hours - just a fabulous hotel - will definately return with our whole familiy for another great eating experience and stay over.
