The hotel’s architects clearly left no stone unturned in ensuring that every detail of their boutique offering conveys the ultimate in cool. And it seems they have succeeded, with indie pop duo Goldfrapp and rock band Keane among the previous clientele. In true modern style, the hotel offers an assortment of sleeping options including individually designed loft suites with such indulgent features as an eight-person outdoor hot tub on a private terrace overlooking the city.
For a really special occasion, the Eleanor apartment is surely the top choice. With luxurious sleeping quarters, a dedicated relaxation area and a bathroom with a Japanese bath, this is a dreamy location for work or play.
Amongst the bright colours and opulence, there’s also a definite British vibe. The aptly named GB Grill & Bar serves such hearty classics as fish pie, sirloin steak and cheese and crackers in a location with a fantastic outdoor terrace level. Indoors, the hotel’s public spaces feature iconic black-and-white images of London offering an enticing glimpse at the possibilities abound within the big city.
The Bermondsey Square Hotel was the setting for Channel 4’s reality show ‘Hotel GB’ that aired in 2012. The show featured such high-profile names as Gordon Ramsay, Mary Portas, Jimmy Carr and Jonathan Ross, who took on challenges to raise money for charity.
