Travel is confusing at the moment, even for the most-seasoned tourist. So, if you’re in need of a break, why not check out what the Square Mile has to offer – and it’s abundant.
Whether you’re looking for beautiful bedrooms, lavish living areas or discreet dining rooms, there are so many fantastic five-star hotels in the City of London.
Let us take you on a tour of some of our favourite high-end hotels in the City.
Four Seasons Ten Trinity Square
You’ll find the lavish five-star hotel in the heart of the City of London, overlooking the Tower of London and adjacent to Tower Hill underground station. The grand grade II-listed building possessed a colourful history before becoming the hotel we know today. The former Port of London Authority building was built in the Beaux-Arts style in 1922, which was fashionable for civic buildings in the Edwardian era. While the original rotunda dome was created to emulate that of St. Paul’s Cathedral. With three restaurants (including the two-Michelin-starred La Dame de Pic), a spa, gym and shops, Four Seasons Ten Trinity Square is an experience in itself.

Andaz Liverpool Street
Located a stone’s throw away from Liverpool Street Station, and one of the original ‘railway hotels’, Andaz was built in 1884 and it’s Victorian façade still stands today. Inside is a different story. The Andaz’s interior is contemporary, yet whimsical, while the rooms have been designed to feel more like home than a hotel. With 14 event spaces and five food and beverage outlets, make sure you give yourself enough to explore. Plus, the hotel occasionally invites pop-up businesses to set up in the lounge to welcome guests. There’s even been a tattoo parlour!
40 Liverpool Street EC2M 7QN
Just over the bridge, Hilton Bankside is the perfect place to host a work event or simply take some time out from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Just a short walk to the South Bank and Tate Modern, the five-star hotel has 292 modern guest rooms, each with original artwork. Sip on your favourite cocktail at the hotel’s rustic bar The Distillery, or tuck into bottomless brunch at the lively OXBO Bankside, both inside Hilton Bankside.
2-8 Great Suffolk Street SE1 0UG
A hotel as well as an exclusive members’ club with nine restaurants, The Ned has both an indoor and rooftop pool, a gym, spa and hammam. Named after the original building’s architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens, the hotel and members’ club is spread over eight floors above ground and three below and is home to nine restaurants, 15 bars, two pools, a spa, a barber shop and a boxing gym. You may even spot a celeb or two.
27 Poultry EC2R 8AJ
The former Victorian bank is now a beautiful boutique-style hotel with an elegant stained-glass dome just moments from Tower Bridge in the heart of the City. With natural, muted tones throughout, the hotel is the ultimate place to relax with an emphasis on natural wood furnishings, plush soft furnishings and dim lighting. Take afternoon tea in the iconic dome lounge and enjoy treats from a menu created by Marco Pierre White. For an extra treat, add a glass of Champagne.
