With 13 hotels, serving more than 3,000 people each night, Z hotels is making its mark across the UK. Renowned for their small but perfectly compact rooms located in the best locations, their hotels are perfect for those who are seeking somewhere both stylish and reasonably priced to stay.
We stayed at Z Holborn, a 197-bed hotel located in the heart of London’s Midtown (that sweet spot between The City and the West End), making it the ideal place for those wishing to visit Somerset House or shop in Covent Garden.
Housed in a beautiful building bursting with traditional features such as intricate cornicing and high ceilings, it instantly impresses. Upon arrival, the reception area is very subtle – so subtle in fact that for the uninitiated, you do find yourself wondering whether you’re in the right place as it is open to the brasserie. Check in is friendly and efficient – a minute or so after your arrival, and you’re on your way to your room.
Although the rooms are compact – no cat swinging here - they don’t compromise on quality; all of the seriously comfy beds are handmade in Devon and they use luxurious materials for the headboards and room furnishings.
The petite size of the rooms gives them an almost womb-like comfort, creating the perfect environment for a good night’s kip. At the foot of each bed is a large HDTV with all Sky Sports and Movie channels, ideal for unwinding after a day exploring London’s sights. The rooms also come equipped with a private bathroom with a power shower, in room tea and coffee making facilities and a small desk for those travelling for business.
Most guests stay an average of one or two nights, and with all London has to offer right on your doorstep, you won’t be spending much time in your room anyways.
Prices from £55 (for an inside double).
