New luxury hotels in London: Nobu Hotel Shoreditch, the first European venture
Luxury and comfort all wrapped in a pretty Nobu package — what more can one ask for?
Among the luxury hotels that have opened in London over the years, none have quite as strong a fan following as that of the Nobu Hotel Shoreditch. Joining the luxury brands collection of hotels, in Las Vegas, Manila, Ibiza, Marbella, Los Cabos and more, the Nobu Hotel Shoreditch is yet another step, in chef Nobu Matsushisa and partner’s rapidly expanding empire.
Situated in the heart of the city’s arts district, the hotel stands out on the street thanks to its blend of luxury and creative energy that the brand is known for. Designed by Ron Arad Architects and Ben Adams Architects, Nobu Hotel Shoreditch boasts a distinct look with its cantilevered steel beams and overhanging floor slabs. With the help of printed, layered glass the reflective façade is the perfect blend of colour, reflection and light.
Thanks to local designers Studio Mica, the interior of the hotel features modern finishes that make the 143 guest rooms, seven suites and lobby that much more luxurious. Using warm tones throughout, the rooms and suites evoke a sense of calm, an ideal setting for those who wish to unwind during their stay. Each suite at the hotel comes with its own private balcony and is fitted with end-grain parquet flooring. The most coveted suite though happens to be the 861 square-foot Nobu Suite that offers the ultimate Nobu experience. With its own free-standing bathtub and double walk-in shower, the Nobu Suite is a home away from home, in the heart of London complete with custom yukata robes.
Joining the luxurious accommodation options is a 240-seater Nobu restaurant that we are certainly excited about. While the hotel is the brand’s first European venture, it is the third Nobu restaurant to be found in London — the more the merrier, we say. Complete with a sushi counter, the Japanese-fusion cuisine is one that residents of London and guests are set to enjoy. There is no better location to enjoy trademark ‘Nobu style’ than at a Nobu restaurant. With classic dishes that define the Nobu experience on the menu, the new locale also boasts items that are exclusive to the restaurant and take its inspiration from the surrounding area.
