The former Old Street Magistrate’s Court re-opened its doors in 2016 as a fantastic boutique hotel. Once the place where Reggie and Ronnie Kray were detained, now a grand and immaculately decorated place to stay right in the heart of Shoreditch – for a bit of London flavour on the East side of the city, the Courthouse is a must visit.
For the usually aloof Shoreditch, the staff is surprisingly friendly and meets you at the concierge desk in front of the gloriously grand, sprawling staircase in the atrium, ready to attend to all whims. Room service is prompt, the breakfast is delicious and the clientele is refreshingly diverse, unlike in some of the other more central hotels.

POOL, SPA AND WELNESS
With a 10m long heated pool, it is hard not to jump in and feel the tense muscles relax. Complete with a jet fountain and jacuzzi style bubbles around the pool, it is more relaxing than ever to take a swim. Rejuvenate with a visit to the sauna or steam room within the pool area. Showers and lockers available within the pool area.
With capacity for 180 guests, Courthouse Hotel Shoreditch‘s new rooftop terrace is divided into The Upper Bar – available for impromptu drinks and spontaneous celebrations with standing tables and gorgeous scenery, as well as The Garden – a reservation-only area with table service and luxurious cabana sofa-bed seating.
Both areas offer an exquisite cocktail menu, devised by onsite mixologist, Danut Fundulea, complementing the expertly‐prepared small plates, sharer options and Shisha menu available.
