    • Hoxton Hotel

      Top award
      The 250 rooms may be a little on the small side, but they all have rain showers, top quality bed linen and a flat-screen TV. The pricing system is based on the budget airline model: the earlier you book, the cheaper your night’s stay will be. Several time a year, the hotel holds a «£1 Sale» when it auctions off rooms for one pound a night in the Internet. And guests can also telephone free of charge (even abroad!) for up to one hour. The Columbia Road Flower Market and famous Brick Lane are both within easy walking distance of the hotel.

She has created an unpretentious alternative to the West End for inquisitive and adventurous travellers. The six rooms (three of which share a bathroom) have functional interiors. Breakfast is all-organic, and consists of eggs and sausages from local producers, truffles on toast and homemade jam. The train journey to Central London takes about 20 minutes.

    • 40 Winks

      Design hotel
      The project is by the celebrated design David Carter, whose «micro boutique hotel» in the rough-and-tumble area of the East End serves as an inspiring haven for the chic and design conscious. Simply bursting with British eccentricity, the 40 Winks is not only a hotel but also Carter's private residence and a popular backdrop for video and fashion shoots. It has just two bedrooms, which share a fabulous bathroom. Tip: It’s a good idea to book well in advance.
