The district of Shoreditch extends north of the Thames and northeast of the City of London, and could not be found in travel guides ten years ago. The area was poor, dangerous, and run-down but has undergone a remarkable transformation recently. Not least, thanks to the Olympic Games, the entire east of London has changed into an urban and hip area.
Many young and trendy creative people live east of the city, and many start-up companies have settled near Old Street. Shoreditch has long since ceased to be an insider’s tip when immersing yourself in London’s true nightlife. We stayed at the Courthouse Hotel Shoreditch, and it was marvelous.
Courthouse Hotel Shoreditch
The Courthouse Hotel Shoreditch is located in the middle of Shoreditch on Old Street, near the crossroads to Shoreditch High Street. It is a 5-star hotel that opened in May 2016.
It is located in an old courthouse and captivates with a great combination of history and modernity. With 116 spacious rooms and suites, a trendy cocktail bar, several award-winning restaurants, a lavish spa, a fitness center, and a roof terrace, the Courthouse is ideal for a London stay.
The staff is always friendly and helpful. The rooms are very spacious and modern by London standards. Disadvantages are the paper-thin walls and doors, which make the noise from the corridor and the neighboring rooms audible.
Breakfast can be booked as an option and costs GBP 22.00. However, considering the many excellent coffee shops in the immediate vicinity, you can confidently do without it.
This also applies to lunch or dinner. Shoreditch is known for its gastronomy.
The Courthouse Hotel is 5 minutes from Old Street underground station (Northern Line). It takes about 20 minutes to get to the city center and about 25 minutes to walk to the city center. There are also the stations Liverpool Street and Aldgate.
