“Simply Amazing Hotel & Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

Located in the coolest part of London, the Ace Hotel has to be one of the most exciting and interesting hotels I've ever stayed in. The staff are cool and dressed more stylishly than I will ever be. The reception is big and open and leads round to a bar area, coffee shop, club, neighbouring restaurant Hoipaloi (see separate review) and florists.

The rooms are really cool with amazing decor that means you can't help but look and explore every time you're in the room. Everything is available to buy from paracetamol to mixing decks and the robes are difficult to leave behind!

We stayed in the deluxe double on the 4th floor to the rear of the hotel which is quieter than the front. The room comes with a low, but massive bed, iron and tea making facilities and massive a couch. It also comes with a passable hair dryer but it didn't match my wife's high, bouffant requirements. Theirs free wifi throughout which didn't require me to login every time which is great. The hotel also has a sauna and gym but we were too busy to see them as we had to fit in an Alternative Tour of London Street Art, Dinner at the Pearl at the Dolls House, clubbing at McQueens, steak dinner and the Book of Morman show!

Overall, this hotel is perfectly in keeping with the coolest area of London, minutes away from Hoxton Square, Spitalfields Market and still close to the westend. There is so much to see in Shoreditch and the hotel is the best way to get you in the trendy, relaxed and cool way of local life.

If you want to stay in an experience hotel that's in keeping with the area you're staying in, then the Ace Hotel is a fantastic choice!

Wow five stars! We really appreciate your in-depth review on trip advisor; it’s so nice you went into so much detail for all to see. We at Ace love creating partnerships within the community of where our hotel is based and so it’s nice to hear from guests that they like the outlets for example the flower shop and Hoi polloi because we love them!
Please do come back to see us

Maybe I am being a bit unfair - and the hotel is uber cool - so uber cool I think I missed the memo on what cool was! The staff are all like something out of some rock band, and the fixtures and fitting of the hotel are all like art installations. Having said that its interesting - very well appointed - quirky and does have you smiling at things you never thought you would smile at - like a tissue box for example. The food for breakfast we excellent - just crazy expensive. 4.50GBP for 2 boiled eggs if you please.... obviously hipster chickens......Enjoyed the overall experience though and pleased I got to stay there..... excellent restaurant around the corner called Andina - Peruvian... worth staying at the hotel just to eat there!

Room Tip: Ask for on with a guitar or turntables

Hmmm. Where to start! If you love uber utilitarian municipal car park chic this is the place for you. Dark with lots of grey, black, steel and concrete. Not very warm and welcoming - I think I like more joy, colour and light in an interior. Incompetent and painful check in experience. Lobby DJ looked thoroughly miserable playing his tunes. Clearly it's not cool to be happy at this Hipster hotel.
On the plus side the food at breakfast and the cocktails in the bar were fab. The hotel is immaculate, clean and perfectly maintained. The robes in the rooms super comfy.

Hi Claireyl,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review on our hotel, we always love to hear what people think about us. We totally understand that some of our décor and features are not necessarily to everyone's taste but we always like to hear what people think.

We were delighted to read that you enjoyed the cocktails in the bar and that the rooms were immaculate too. Our housekeeping team will be delighted to hear that!

And you are so right our bathrobes are really comfy!

We do hope you will pay us another visit soon

We stayed here in April 2014 and upgraded to one of the larger rooms. We were blown away by the cool design, including a guitar in the room and a record player with a great selection of vintage vinyl. We liked it so much that we cancelled our plans the following morning so we could make the most of our stay!

Having never stayed in an Ace hotel before and only booking this trip as it was a deal on secret escapes we had no idea what we were in for. Greeted warmly two days before check in, by 'of course we could leave luggage whilst we train to Glasgow'. Upon our return to check in with another smiling face. The location is superb, the facilities are great, coffee shop and bar downstairs, free wifi. The only downsides were being able to hear bar noise until late into night, and kegs changed early in the morning but that's what you get for staying in this area!

Good things:
- awesome room, very trendy
- big comfy bed
- reasonably priced mini bar
- nice shower

No so good things:
- silly metal mugs that when filled with hot water make the handle very hot
- no hand towel

Overall a great night and cool place to stay.

It's a funky design hotel with cool looking people working there, if you want a generic chain hotel look elsewhere. They have really nice rooms with lots of style and individuality and artworks, the most fun lobby of any hotel I've ever seen, and the most amazing helpful staff that are more approachable and friendly than any I've encountered elsewhere, and I've stayed at The Dorchester, St.Martins' Lane, Sanderson, Sofitel St. James, Grosvenor Hotel to name a few so I am comparing their service to that of strictly 5 star hotels. And reasonable rates too..... spot on!
