'This hotel gem in Farringdon mixes style with great service,' says Laura. Set in a converted Victorian warehouse, 'modern and kitsch objects like iPod docks, solar terrace lights and worn copies of Penguin classics sit side-by-side'. It's also built with sustainable timbers and finished with environmentally friendly paints.
