I had the most amazing experience at Nobu Shoreditch, a luxury hotel in the heart of east London and part of the famous Nobu brand.

The hotel is located in the trendy Shoreditch area, close to many attractions, shops, bars and restaurants. You can easily explore the vibrant nightlife, the street art, the markets, and the galleries of this neighbourhood.

The hotel is a stunning blend of contemporary design and Japanese elegance which combines luxury, style and culture in a unique way and characterises Nobu’s cuisine and philosophy.   Each one of the 148 rooms are spacious and well designed with natural materials, soft lighting and artworks inspired by the local culture. All bathrooms are sleek with rainfall showers and Natura Bissé toiletries.  In room amenities include Nespresso machine, minibar, smart TV and free WiFi. Some rooms even boast a balcony or terrace with views over the courtyard.  The staff are extremely friendly, attentive, and professional.

The highlight of my stay was the signature restaurant, Nobu, which of course serves some of the best Japanese cuisine in the world.  The atmosphere was lively and chic, and the service was impeccable.  They also have a sushi bar, private dining room and terrace.  A café just by reception which offers cocktails, wines teas, coffee and pastries.

Other amenities include fitness centre equipped with state-of-the-art machines exercise classes and personal trainers on hand.  The spa offers a range of treatments based on ancient Japanese rituals and smells divine.

They also offer a Paws and Relax package which is a pet-friendly stay.  Think pampered pouch.  They offer treatments, walks and have their own pet concierge.  The cutest part is they get their own Nobu bath robe and there is a mini paws bar for some tasty treats courtesy of Caboodle and a “pupacino” or two – so cute!

To stay here is nearly half the price of its sister in Portman Square but a smaller and more intimate hotel which is also close to public transport links and within walking distance of London attractions.
