As one of London’s newest design hotels, the Town Hall Hotel & Apartments is set within the landmark Bethnal Green Town Hall in East London, where every inch of the 9,000 sqm space has been painstakingly restored by Singaporean hotelier Peng Loh and London’s Rare Architecture Group over the past four years. Having been in disrepair for decades, the Art Deco heritage building conversion blends the best of the building’s original fixtures with clean, contemporary furnishings and cutting-edge technology. Interiors feature sweeping marble staircases, glass domed ceilings, minimalist open white spaces and colourful modern furnishings. Best of all, the bedrooms and apartments are great value starting from ₤150 per night, where guests also have access to a 15m indoor swimming pool, first-class health & spa facilities, and the inventive gastronomy restaurant by chef Nuno Mendes, Viajante, as part of the package. Be prepared to experience a more raw and authentic side of East London.
