Somewhere between an art gallery and a beach house (and somewhere a little north of Soho), Goodge Street takes relaxation to a whole new level. Slick, modern rooms are awash with sunshine, waves crash on the sitting room wall and the roof terrace is an urban paradise. And when finally you do descend, you’re right in the heart of the action. The best coffee, some of the hottest restaurants and many of the best galleries and museums in London are on your doorstep. Oxford Street, Bond Street, Regent Street – it’s enough to sate even the most committed shopper.
You’re up in the eaves, with windows and skylights on all sides, and this gives the living space a tremendous brightness. The walls are white, the furniture’s contemporary, and the original artwork dazzlingly alive. There’s a white modern kitchen, and six can eat at the dining table, looking onto funky metal stairs up to the roof terrace. Both bedrooms are doubles, each with its own bathroom.
