It's only been open for three months but the Mint Hotel Tower of London is keeping things fresh with the addition of one of those cool, eco living walls. And not just any living wall the "the tallest live green wall on a building in Europe".

The wall was unveiled last month and contains 40 species of plants which make up the whooping 184,000 plants that cover 1,025 square meters of the hotels exterior. We wonder what the Athenaeum Hotel will have to say about it as up until now they were the only London hotel to have a living wall. And let's face it the Mint's living wall dwarfs their one which has only 12,000 plants.

The Mint hotel also features a green roof area. The living wall can be viewed from reception via its glass roof and from the bedrooms facing the courtyard. If you fancy a night in the Mint "Green" hotel rates will set you back from £120 a night including free WIFI - we've said it before and we'll say it again BARGAIN.
