“Metropolitan Boutique”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

Always interested in trying somewhere new, I was delighted to join friends for a reunion at the newly opened South Place Hotel. Centrally located, a stone's throw from Liverpool Street, this chic, modern hotel is also attractive & welcoming, with carefully chosen furnishings & artwork. The staff were unfailingly helpful & polite: nothing was too much trouble. We dined in the ground floor lobby - my Steak Tartare was perfectly seasoned along with crisp, crunchy frites - although there is a rooftop restaurant which will have to wait until my next visit! A great innovation is the first floor courtyard bar - outside space within the hotel.

The guest rooms are beautifully appointed, all in muted shades of contemporary colours with satisfyingly luxurious touches. The generously stocked mini-bar also had a vast & very tempting 'Goodies Drawer' with all imaginable snacks & chocolates. The bathroom complete with an oversized bathtub, rainforest shower & an excellent selection of products, was all the one could wish for. The touch pad lighting & room controls were functional & the James Bond style electronically operated 'Black Out Shutter' was very cool & allowed for an essential undisturbed Sunday morning lie in!

Back downstairs again, all was immaculate, despite the previous night's revelries & plenty of Sunday papers near at hand. The Bloody Mary's came with an individual 'Kilner Bottle' of perfectly judged tomato juice mix & delicious bar snacks.

All in all a very impressive operation, especially considering how new the hotel is - I'll definitely be back!

We're pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and had the full South Place experience - including lie-in, brunch, and Sunday morning Bloody Mary at brunch. We hope to tempt you back when our rooftop restaurant is open next week!

Amazing hotel even more amazing it's in the heart of the City of London. Although not fully opened was lucky enough to stay last night. Really cool, upmarket meets the boho shore ditch crowd where art and attention to detail is the priority. Service exemplary friendly efficient and fun. Check out the first floor, this is what hotels should be about. Restaurant and bars all great and am sure the seafood restaurant on top floor will be great when opens next week and has a fab terrace. Rooms best around can't believe you would want to stay anywhere else. Well done D&D.
