The Boundary Hotel, Boundary Street, Shoreditch
I’m not going to lie and tell yo that I arrived in London feeling confident to meet a whole group of newly acquainted friends in which I would spend the next three days. That was certainly not the case! I was filled with nerves which built up throughout the morning, and then taxi driver proceeded to tell me that he had never taken anyone to The Boundary Hotel and that it must be “a really dodgy one” and that the street that the hotel is located is “extremely rough”.
I’ve been to the area many times before and to my knowledge, it was perfectly fine each time I visited! It’s actually one of my favourite areas on London. Baleeblu kindly booked the hotel for us to stay at, so I looked it up beforehand and remembered it looking amazing form the photos on the website, but the negative thoughts were put in to my mind because I thought to myself that this taxi driver is local, so he must knows better.
I stayed in the Charles and Ray Eames suite, one of the corner rooms which had six huge windows. The room was uber stylish (the most stylish I’ve ever stayed in!) which had it’s little quirks like the Eames style coat hooks and the colourful headboard. Each night when I got back to the room, there was a treat from the Albion like fruit and a really rich chocolate truffle cake thing!
