Excellent location, close to everything. The design is interesting and functional - we hosted a small little party in our room over new year's and it was perfect for that. The rooftop is also amazing when it's open.More

Glad you enjoyed your stay and NYE party, hope to see you back again soon.
Loved this hotel! The tardis-like entrance squeezed between the cafe and some nice shops, and the compact public area means that the bedrooms are whopping, full of light and really comfortable. We stayed in the Eileen Grey room which isn't particularly my thing but I loved the small details and references to its location in a very historic area. Big fat bed, nice stiff sheets = a great night's sleep. The room wasn't particularly noisy, despite being first floor and currently directly over a building site. Reception staff were really helpful. Brilliant busy area - we arrived late and sorted out our hunger in the 24 hour bagel shop around the corner - followed by scrumptious flapjacks left in the room. Amazing shopping area too. Only wish we could have got to experience the roof terrace on a balmy evening. If I could improve it, I'd replace stupid sized tea and coffee cups with proper mugs - in room and in the cafe below. That's all. We will be back.
Thank you for the great review and we are pleased to read you will be coming back, we hope to welcome you back very soon.
When you first enter the tiny lobby area you wonder what you have done. Then you go to your room and know you have made the right decision. As small as the entrance may be the rooms are large and very well set out. The bathroom is great and very stylish and modern like the room. It's a newish place and really well maintained so a real delight to stay.
The hotel is a 15 minute walk to Liverpool Street station which gives access to the Circle Line which will get you anywhere in the city.
There are two restaurants, the Albion which is a casual diner serving a great breakfast and also lunch and dinner. It also has a bakery and the smell of freshly baked bread and pastry is fantastic. The main restaurant "The Boundary" is top class and not cheap but worth the money, it is a standout. Also nearby are two outstanding restaurants in Galvan and L'anima both about a 10 minutes walk from the hotel.
There are a few good quality shops and other popular drinking places very near so the area is quite buzzy.
A very good small boutique hotel, well worth a visit for staying or dining.
Thank you so much for the review, we are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay as well as the restaurant services, we hope to welcome you back very soon.
of the best Hotels in London for younger travelers (if they can afford the price;)). I highly recommend dining in the hotel restaurant Chateau Boundrary .Try the dinner three course menu for 24,90. Awesome! Nice hotel terrace with Bar and Grill (and breakfast, if the weather allows it) and good a la carte breakfast in the Albion Cafe. Perfect location in Shoreditch and good and friendly service - we will come back! (when the construction on Boundary Street is finished)
Really pleased to read that you enjoyed the restaurant and that you will be returning.
A wonderful concept hotel, beautifully designed with a focus on detail. In the fun area of Shoreditch but just a quick walk into the City, so a great location.
The room was comfy, clean and beautiful. However, when you take a break, it should just be that - you want to feel 100% looked after, and unfortunately we didn't get that.
Front Desk: Seemed to lack proper hospitality training and were a little rough around the edges. The lady on the desk didn't know the area. When asked about breakfast it was a long ramble. We weren't given information on the wonderful restaurants that were on offer.
Cleaning: Done to a very high standard. However we were shocked when on one occasion we asked cleaning for an extra hour - when we planned to leave. She bartered with us down to 20 minutes. In hindsight, a hotel of this standard shouldn't dictate to guests a time frame for cleaning a room.
Security / Front door: Wonderful and polite
Albion Servers: Didn't know what the cakes / treats they had to offer and had to keep running back to the 'cake table' to remind themselves. I expect, when paying a premium for afternoon coffee that the servers know what they have available without making me feel awkward for asking.
Gluten free options: Very minimal, or not made clear. It's a detail only coeliac sufferers notice I expect, however after coming in from a quick trip Northern Ireland where we had several amazing experiences with proactive menus and ingredients offered, the comparison was obvious.
All in all, a pleasant experience, they have the rooms spot on, and I'd hope to come again. I'm sure the small annoyances we had are something management continues to work on.
Thank you for your observations, I am pleased that you will return and hope that you notice an improvement in services especially at the front desk.
Stayed at the Boundary again last month, it’s become my preferred hotel on visits to London.
The principal attraction to me are the “corner” rooms on each floor, These are large rooms with big windows on two sides, each is presented in the style of a different 20th century designer and, perhaps unsurprisingly given the Conran ownership, this is beautifully done. This is not design at the expense of function, the rooms are well equipped and to a high standard.
If you are looking for imposing public areas, you’re in the wrong place! Reception is a corridor with a desk in it, the basement bar largely services the hotels Restaurant (which I have never used but which seems to get good reviews).
On the ground floor is The Albion Café which fronts onto the street and includes a food shop and its own bakery. It is popular with the achingly trendy young people of Shoreditch which makes it a fun place to eat. It serves all day from breakfast to evening meals. The food is simple but good quality, well cooked and service is generally efficient and friendly.
Not relevant on a January visit but a real pleasure in the summer months is the “Rooftop” serving drinks and food al fresco. It can get very busy on warm days (and I mean queuing in the street busy) but hotel guests can usually be fitted in. I believe is being refurbished for next summer with more indoor space.
Looking forward to my next visit
Delighted you are one of our regulars, thank you for the great review.
