These Are the Best New London Hotels to Visit in 2023

The exterior of the Twenty Two.

When it comes to hotels, visitors to London are spoiled for choice. Here, our guide to the city’s best new and spruced-up properties — plus a preview of those we can’t wait to see. 

The Newcomers

Chateau Denmark

Soho’s Denmark Street has a rich musical legacy: the Rolling Stones recorded at Regent Sound Studios at No. 4, the Sex Pistols lived in a flat at No. 6, and, at No. 9, David Bowie and Elton John would hang out at the café La Gioconda. This rock ’n’ roll history lives on at Chateau Denmark, a 55-key property created from 16 old buildings. Each room comes with a rider — before arrival, guests can make a list of requests, the same way that musicians do for venues. Some rooms sit above the former 12 Bar Club — where Adele and the Libertines played some of their earliest sets — and all exude sensual glamour. One unit might have a brooding Victorian aesthetic, with black paisley wallpaper and a red freestanding bathtub; another might feature gold-trimmed bed frames embellished with white graffiti. Chateau Denmark’s cheekily renamed “BTLRs” can help whip up cocktails from the generous in-room bars, or secure reservations for the high-end Chinese restaurant Tattu, above the hotel.

One Hundred Shoreditch 


This successor to the Ace Hotel Shoreditch, which closed in 2020, is a grown-up addition to the cool and scrappy East London scene. The building, peppered with installations by local artists, is as much of a social hub as its predecessor, with six restaurants and bars — most notably the Rooftop, a Palm Springs–style hangout, and Seed Library, a basement-level cocktail bar from renowned mixologist Mr. Lyan, a.k.a. Ryan Chetiyawardana.
