Hilton will open its fourth Curio property in London next month, with the addition of a new hotel in the capital’s Shoreditch district.
The 126-room Hart Shoreditch is located on Great Eastern Street close to Old Street station, and takes its name from the building’s previous occupants, The Harts, who were cabinetmakers in the 1800s.
Facilities include rooms featuring “a muted, elegant colour palette with copper mirror accents, deep green leather detailing and simplistic, modern furnishings”, as well as fitness centre, Barboun restaurant offering an Eastern Mediterranean menu and a grab and go deli, Tavla bar for light bites and barrel-aged cocktails, and an “exciting new nightclub concept” which will open in early 2020.
The hotel also has three meeting spaces “designed to feel like an 18th Century Huguenot townhouse”, with “sandstone fireplaces, soft green walls, belted leather chandeliers and brogued leather wall lighting”.
Hart Shoreditch will join three other Curio by Hilton properties in London – 100 Queen’s Gate Hotel (formerly the DoubleTree by Hilton London Kensington), The Trafalgar St James London, and Lincoln Plaza London. For reviews of the last two of these, see:

In early 2018 Hilton also announced plans for a Curio property opposite opposite Stratford International Train Station, called The London Gantry. At the time of the announcement the hotel had been scheduled to open in 2020 – at this stage there are no further details.
Hilton is also scheduled to add a Curio hotel in the City of London in 2022, with views of St Paul’s Cathedral.
Commenting on the news Lina Zakzeckyte, general manager of Hart Shoreditch, said:
“We are incredibly excited for the opening of Hart Shoreditch in February. The hotel itself really is one-of-a-kind, with a design that acts as a celebration of the local area and its rich heritage; so we hope that our appreciation of great craftsmanship shows through.
“We’re thrilled to be able to bring something new to the area, offering guests a place to stay that is unique and design-led yet laid back and comfortable.
“Not only will it be the perfect base for the curious traveller to explore the local area and all of the exciting experiences that come with it, we also want the hotel to become an integral part of Shoreditch – a community hub for those who live, work and play in the area.”
