Rooms and Suites

Andaz London has 267 spacious rooms, including 15 suites, designed by Conran & Partners to create spaces where the traditional City meets the vibrant East End, capturing the hotel’s location and heritage.

Pinstriped carpets are a nod to the uniforms of the nearby bankers, with accentuated stitched ‘jeans’ fabric around the base of the bed in recognition of the area’s sartorial past. Tattoo art by local illustrator Sophie Mo on the tan-leather bed headboards pays homage to the silk weavers that used to dominate Shoreditch’s textile industry. Images of the local area by local photographer Martin Usborne again help to connect guests with the hotel’s dynamic surroundings.

Food and Drink

Visitors to Andaz London will find something to suit all dining tastes, with three of the hotel’s five restaurants and bars, each with their own distinctive character and unique offering, now open to the public.

Rake’s Café Bar is the ideal haven to escape the buzz of the City. You won’t find formalities or rules here, just an eclectic array of comforting food, fantastic coffee and a specially crafted cocktail menu, worth experimenting during the 2-4-1 Happy Hour (Wed-Fri 4-7pm & Sat 5-7pm).

Listed by Forbes as one of London’s top five Japanese restaurants, Miyako presents diners with an authentic array of hand-rolled sushi, expertly crafted sashimi, teriyaki and other indigenous delicacies – also available to experience bottomless every Thursday and Friday – alongside a range of sake and Japanese beers.

A destination for the curious, Lady Abercorn’s Pub & Kitchen is named in honour of a sassy but caring landlady whose influence can be found in the décor and on the menu. Enjoy fresh pub grub accompanied by a cold beer from local breweries – or even sample its very own, the Lady A IPA.

Other Activities

24-hour gym, spa services, steam room

When it comes to corporate and private events, Andaz London features 15 distinctly unique spaces. These can accommodate any occasion, for up to 250 guests, whether your taste runs to the informal and contemporary loft-style of the Andaz Studio (which also regularly hosts yoga, bespoke dining events and pop-up restaurants) or the majestic grandeur of the 1901 Ballroom. Dominating the centre of the latter is the building’s original stained-glass dome, which remarkably lost only one glass panel during the Blitz, protected by the hotel’s mattresses – and its intrepid guests.

Located on the first floor, the Exchange room seamlessly blends contemporary furnishings and period features. An impressive oak table fills the centre of the room with space for up to 16 guests.

Arguably one of London’s best kept secrets is The Masonic Temple, housed in the depths and available for private hire. Built in 1912, and the City’s only original Freemason’s meeting lodge, it was rediscovered only by chance during the hotel’s refurbishment. This extraordinary Grade II listed space boasts 12 varieties of Italian marble, Doric and Ionic columns, gilt fittings and a splendid zodiac ceiling. Not to mention a throne where Lady Gaga once sat.
