Last week I stayed at The Courthouse hotel Shoreditch for London Fashion Week, this hotel is located in East London. Let me start by telling you some history about the hotel. The Courthouse hotel Shoreditch is set in a Grade II Baroque building that used to be the Old Street Magistrates Court and Police Station. It has held some high cases such as the London mobsters, the Kray Twins who stood trial for ”demanding money through menaces”. Then the police station held the author Eric Arthur Blair who was also known as George Orwell of ”1984” and the well known book and movie ”Animal Farm”.
The hotel has a 196-seat cinema, an indoor swimming pool including a spa. It also has a two-lane bowling alley which is great for private hire and events.
Old street station is just a 8 minute walk from The Courthouse Hotel Shoreditch.
The rooms in the hotel are lovely and spacious. Some rooms have a view of Old Street, Shoreditch. Other rooms have a lounge area with an extra television. Bathrooms have great lighting and include a makeup mirror. All facilities are available when needed for a long stay in the bedroom.
Breakfast was delicious with a choice of hot and cold buffet. Staff were incredibly friendly and couldn’t be more helpful. If there was anything else you wished for they would do there best to provide it.
The bowling room which has a two-lane bowling alley as I explained in the introduction is available for private hire and events.
Upper 5th Shoreditch
Upper 5th is the rooftop bar at the hotel and has amazing views over Shoreditch & East London. It has a lovely outdoor bar with great seating and a super cool swing decorated with flowers which is great for a Instagram worthy photo. The rooftop bar is amazing for for those sunset moments.
The Jailhouse bar is located on the ground floor next to reception. This is one of the most unusual bars I have ever experienced. You can sit in the main bar or chill out in one of the cells, all original including the cell doors.
After 12 pm everyday they serve Afternoon tea Shoreditch style.
if you’re planning a visit to London then I would truly recommend The Courthouse hotel Shoreditch for your stay!
