E1 1EE Travel Guide
Remember when we told you that a new London hotel would open with rooms under $100 (£59) a night? Between December 15 and March 15, even better value is to be had, with five rooms every day at Qbic London City available at the magic £1 rate.
All proceeds will go to a good cause, only a small part of a charitable ethos that runs throughout the hotel. We sat down with Qbic’s CEO and founder to find out more about the brand and have a chance to see what exactly a ‘Cubi’, which integrates both bed and bathroom, is. Think of it as high-quality flat-pack furniture, which has allowed Qbic to turn this former office building into an operating hotel in six months.
As much as we love exploring the latest luxury hotel, news of another affordable option coming to town - particularly when well-executed (see also: citizenM) - makes us all sorts of happy. London will soon have more choice for those wanting a stylish place to stay on a limited budget, with Qbic London City opening mid-October.
The best part? Rates will start below – BELOW - $100 a night (or £59), and include breakfast and WiFi. Qbic will be in east London on Adler Street, a few minutes' walk from Liverpool Street station and close to Brick Lane and Shoreditch High Street. Inside, guests should find: “immaculate cleanliness, a comfortable bed, a great shower, soundless bedrooms and free WiFi.” Read on for more.
