Looking for a cool place to stay in town? Where better than the citizenM Tower of London Hotel sitting on top of Tower Hill tube station, surrounded by some of the capital’s most famous landmarks?
To fully appreciate the ancient splendour of the Tower, a fortress, prison and palace, and home to the Queen’s Crown Jewels, citizenM has crowned its new 8-storey property with a jewel itself; a dramatic double height space with floor to ceiling windows and a wrap around terrace that offers a stunning 360° view on London and its famed skyline, exclusively for hotel guests and their friends.
Designed by the acclaimed Amsterdam-based creatives of Concrete, the property’s facade blends in with its surroundings. A light and airy glass and limestone facade mirrors the buildings neighbouring the hotel.
The ground floor is the heart of this hotel where guests can relax after a long day in the UK’s capital. Here they can rest, work, get together by the fire place, watch TV or pamper their souls or stomachs. The concept of this area sees five different yet connected spaces that cater to the needs of both modern business travellers and tourists.
In the centre of the new hotel are the self check in terminals, arranged in circles around small sapling trees, which allow a swift and easy check in and out in seconds. Oversized shelves let the guest enter the humorous world of citizenM. Filled with books on subjects such as photography, travel and design, and a collection of unique objects that reflect aspects of traditional British heritage, citizenM’s love for quirky details will delight guests from all over the world. A stuffed boar’s head surveys its surroundings while vintage cricket bats, antique riding boots and silver sports trophies adorn the communal spaces. Furniture from Vitra, citizenM’s long term partner, is used throughout the hotel, showcasing classic pieces from designers such as Verner Panton, Charles & Ray Eames, and Jean Prouvé.
One of the new features of citizenM Tower of London is the concept of coffeeM. Close to the entrance, and right next to the tube exit, both guests and locals will be able to get freshly brewed coffee and pastries from one of the citizenM baristas. CanteenM, the open kitchen format with its signature style bar is open round the clock to satisfy the appetites of hungry travellers. From sushi to salads, from opulent carrot cakes to spicy curries, CanteenM offers a selection of delectable grab and go hot food while in the evening guests can discover a fine selection of cocktails.
For those looking for workspace or an offsite meeting location, on the top two floors is SocietyM, the hotel’s popular business meeting rooms that are both creative and functional, with whiteboards, blackboards, free super fast Wi-Fi. Styled to evoke a 1950s design ethos, with vintage typewriters, telephones and Bakelite radios, these eight meeting spaces are designed to encourage imaginative thinking and innovative ideas.
This hotel is brilliantly placed for visitors to London whether travelling for business or pleasure, or a combination of the two, and has enviable connections for exploring the best the capital has to offer. It is the perfect hub for all mobile travellers who need a creative and inspiring environment to start into their new adventures.
