How about that: when we first learned about The Z Hotels heading out to Shoreditch (like everyone else), we thought the opening of its hotel in The Bower complex wouldn’t happen until second half of the year. Wrong – The Z Shoreditch opened on March 9.
But before we get to that, the budget-chic group is throwing a sixth London hotel in the mix on Fleet Street, right across from the Royal Courts of Justice. That will be the building above, a former office that will have 110 rooms between the lower ground, ground, and three upper floors. Behind the hotel is a beautiful courtyard with the Temple Church, built by the Knights Templar and famous from the Dan Brown novel. A few more shots below.
The hotel action in London’s Shoreditch is so crazy right now that in the hundred yards between Old Street roundabout and The Montcalm / Virgin Shoreditch, we passed another future hotel without knowing it at the time.
While Montcalm / Virgin is just north of Old Street, and Nobu is five minutes east, on the northwest corner The Z Hotels will open another one of its budget-chic hotels in mixed-use complex The Bower.
The 107-room hotel will sit together with office space, restaurants, and retail outlets. Rooms will be on lower ground (i.e. basement), ground, and three upper floors. Lead-in rooms (probably the ones in the basement) will be without windows. Further up there are Double, Queen, and Accessible rooms. All come with en-suite wet room, 40” flat screen TV, and free WiFi. Opening is at the moment listed as just “2015”; looking at construction status the second half of the year looks most likely to us.
