OVERVIEW

Part of the foodie D&D group, this City hotel is much more than the sum of its parts, with a convivial downstairs bar, two excellent restaurants and some of the Square Mile's most spacious, comfortable and well-equipped guest rooms. It's also family- and dog-friendly, and has a cooler vibe than its location might lead you to expect.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

There is no more historic part of the capital than the City, which stretches out from the hotel in all directions. Moorgate tube is also just a two-minute walk away, so you can be anywhere you want in no time. You are close to the Barbican arts centre in one direction and to the hip and happening bars and restaurants of Shoreditch and Hoxton in the other.

By car: the hotel is 4 hours from Manchester, 2 hours 30 mins from Birmingham and 7 hours from Glasgow.

By train: Liverpool Street station is 5 minutes' walk away and Kings Cross station is a 15-minute taxi ride away. Book trains to London.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

From the outside, South Place looks like a perfect venue for the city suits that populate this part of London. But there's more going on behind its contemporary façade than you might think: two excellent restaurants, a buzzy bar, big stylish rooms and a cool, relaxed (and if we're honest) slightly artsy vibe that doesn't just attract corporate folk, and indeed even makes dogs and their owners feel welcome.

THE FACILITIES

Service is efficient and natural throughout, from the reception desk to the restaurant. In addition to the two restaurants and bars, there's a sauna, steam room and gym, a variety of meeting and private dining rooms, plus a quiet guest lounge on the first floor.
