Having stood empty for decades, this Edwardian Town Hall was revamped to create London’s hippest hotel in the vibrant Bethnal Green neighbourhood – at a reassuringly safe distance from the West End but close to the financial district and the trendy Dalston, Hoxton and Shoreditch.

Maintaining the art deco interiors (sweeping marble staircase and domed glass ceiling) and original fixtures and fittings but adding vintage finds and artwork by cool young artists, you’ll get the best of the East End under one roof. Choose from apartments and loft rooms dappled with the light from the building’s ornamental metal veil, or simpler doubles decked out in cool grey slates and sturdy oak furniture.

While the doubles are perfectly comfortable for most, studios and apartments come with built-in, fully functioning kitchens. That allows chefs to come and prepare your in-room dining, fresh from the stellar in-house restaurants the Corner Room or Lee Westcott’s Typing Room. Now that’s civil service. (Advance reservations recommended for both chef and restaurant services.)

The Town Hall Hotel is also home to the swank Peg+Patriot cocktail bar and you’ll find a lovely pool in the basement. At 15 meters it may be better suited for dipping than serious lap training but it provides a pretty view for a cardio workout at the gym (open from 06-24), which is similarly compact in dimensions yet plenty functional to keep the flab at bay.
