    Located where the sophisticated City of London meets the Cultural East End, South Place is the ideal base from which to explore, connect, or rejuvenate. With interiors by Conran & Partners, South Place is the first hotel from international restaurateurs D&D London. A focus on food is evident throughout, with two restaurants and four bars that attract both hotel guests and a crop of loyal Londoners. Angler is a rooftop seafood restaurant with a Michelin star, an air of relaxed elegance, and a stunning roof terrace. Serving comfort food with particular attention to provenance, ground-floor restaurant 3 South Place opens early for breakfast, weekends for brunch, and serves candlelit dinners until late. The hotel’s public spaces are vibrant; contemporary designs are accented with an enticing mixed-media art collection. Digital print wallpaper, resin artefacts and programmable pixel walls provide a window into London’s dynamic art scene. In each of the 80 bedrooms, guests will find thoughtful details and the latest technologies that anticipate the needs of business and leisure guests alike: fresh lemons and limes, push-button black-out blinds and mood lighting, Bang & Olufsen televisions with free in-room cinema, prints from contemporary London artists, and even hangover kits. On the first floor, the Spy Garden offers a retreat to hotel guests along with Le Chiffre, the residents’ games room. Here you will also find five meeting and private dining rooms as well as a well-equipped gym, sauna and steam room. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff offer a warm welcome, and are always on hand to help guests create meaningful experiences and discover the real London outside.

    Rooms & Suites

    No detail has been left unconsidered in the design of the 80 rooms, such as large Bang & Olufsen televisions and even a toaster to ensure that your breakfast is just right. High-thread-count cotton bed linens by Josephine Home add to the comfort, while concealed lighting seems to elevate the beds above the pure wool carpets. Modern, understated design, as well as the materials, colors, and textures in each room create a sense of place. The four room categories at South Place Hotel each provide the highest standard in technical features, ranging from individually controlled climate-zones to free Wi-Fi (found throughout the hotel). Business travelers are sure to appreciate the spacious work desk with recessed media hub and multinational sockets, as well as AV and IT connections and chairs by the Finnish-American designer Eero Saarinen.

    Allies and Morrison

    South Place, the first hotel from restaurateurs D&D London and their partner, Frogmore, combines the business bustle of the nation’s financial center with the creative eccentricity of one of London’s hippest neighborhoods. Located near Liverpool Street Station, the hotel quietly absorbs the innate irregularities of the space with its consented U-shape and receptive, yet discerning façade that mirrors the buildings surrounding it. Conceived as two layers, the façade incorporates thermal insulation with glass against a dark, warm-colored metal, which play off one another in response to function and light.A carefully-crafted ground floor plan also allows 3 South Place restaurant and 3 South Place Bar to extend out onto the sidewalk for added interaction with the City’s street scene.


    Conran + Partners

    Interior spaces at South Place—from its broad communal areas to the 80 bedrooms and suites—bear the aesthetic, award-winning signature of Conran + Partners, whose holistic practice embraces everything from master-planning and architecture to interior-, product- and graphic design. Specially commissioned artwork, including a wall of mechanical pixels, accents the hotel’s lobby.


    Des Gunewerdana & David Loewi

    Restaurant group D&D London owns and operates over 30 of the foremost restaurants in London, Paris, New York, and Tokyo. CEO and Chairman Des Gunewerdana created D&D along with managing director David Loewi in September 2006 when they led the buyout of Conran Restaurants. After a postgraduate degree in Swiss Hotel Training, Loewi has accumulated over 25 years of experience in the London hospitality industry, while the Sri Lankan-born Gunewerdana studied economics at Bristol University and is an expert on financing, property, and design. With South Place, their first hotel, the men have struck a balance between the business bustle of the nation’s financial center and the creative eccentricity of one of London’s hippest neighborhoods.
