Nestled in the buzzing neighborhood of Shoreditch, in the historic East End of London, the Courthouse Hotel Shoreditch was once home to notorious criminals such as the Kray brothers, as it’s poised right in the shell of the Old Street Magistrates Court, that has been beautifully transformed into one of London’s most unique boutique hotels right now.
So you might say you’re going to spend a night right in the cells of the old Grade II-listed Old Street Magistrates Court and Police Station if you decide to stay here, and you could be enjoying a fancy drink at the hotel’s lavish cocktail bar, which is actually located exactly where Ronnie and Reggie Kray had their first criminal hearing in 1965.
After an extensive renovation, the hotel ended up with 128 stunning rooms boasting with modern amenities and impressive little details. Part of one of London’s most vibrant neighborhoods, this high-end boutique hotel offers complimentary Wi-Fi, Sky in-room TV, and incredible views of the London skyline, among many other goodies.
And if you’re willing to go all out, the Shoreditch Sky Terrace Suite is a one-bedroom residence which will tease all your senses with a private bar, a mini cinema lounge and a stunning backdrop of panoramic views. Guests may also experience the hotel’s 196-seat cinema, a heated indoor pool, a two-lane bowling alley, and a holistic spa. Not bad, right?
