Whatever your reason for being in London, the perfect stay starts with the perfect winter hotel. 2017 has seen an exceptional crop of new hotels opening their doors in the capital – hotly anticipated new hotels that go the extra mile to create a world of their own away from London’s winter weather.

So here it is - our five best new hotels in London for a winter visit to the capital.

The Ned, City of London

The Ned is one of the most highly anticipated new London hotels in years - and it's easy to see why. This ambitious new project from Soho House Group has reimagined the Square Mile's landmark Midland Bank building as a grand, stylish hotel at scale, boasting 250+ design-led rooms and suites, nine restaurants, a private members club, rooftop terrace with swimming pool and an underground bar in the old bank's safety deposit vault. 

AND it’s just a short walk (or an even shorter cab ride) from the HAC - making it the perfect hotel for attendees of this year's London Comedy Lunch.

Nobu Hotel, Shoreditch

Opened in June, Nobu Hotel in Shoreditch has been eagerly awaited by lovers of luxury hotels and world-class cuisine alike. This crisp, compact new hotel, on Shoreditch's fashionable Willow Street, boasts 150+ bedrooms with a distinctly Japanese minimalist feel, as well as private landscaped garden and terraces.

The star of the show here though - as expected from the world's best-known master sushi chef - is a dramatic basement-level Nobu restaurant, perfect for tucking yourself away from London's winter weather.

The LaLit London, Tower Bridge

The 70-room LaLit is a breathtaking meeting of British and Indian atmospheres and traditions.

Externally the hotel, steps from Tower Bridge and five minutes from London Bridge Station and the Shard, is all red brick and Victorian grandeur – but step inside and you’re transported. Staff in traditional Indian dress, peacock blue and gold tapestries, the warm flickering of latticed tea lamps, a spa and a high-end in-house Indian restaurant make you feel a world away from a London winter.

The Curtain, Shoreditch

One of Shoreditch's most exciting new hotels, the Curtain is a laid-back, unpretentious luxury hotel minutes on foot from Old Street station.

Nestled in the heart of London's coolest neighbourhood, it has a Manhattan warehouse vibe – a warming mix of Soho House-style decor, tacos and tequila. On-site soul food restaurant Red Rooster is exceptional, and the hotel offers the extras and the quality you'd expect from veteran New York hotelier's Michael Achenbaum's first European effort.

Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square, City of London

Housed in the City of London's iconic Ten Trinity Square, overlooking the Tower of London and the Thames, London's newest Four Seasons hotel is a revelation. The room are impeccably finished, and on-site restaurants La Dame de Pic and contemporary Asian fusion house Mei Ume are both outstanding.

Enjoy all that the festive season in London has to offer from this base in the heart of the City, then head for the dramatic Rotunda Bar for the perfect warming nightcap. Alternatively stay put, and take advantage of the 24hr in-room dining, indoor pool and spa facilities. Your call.
