The outer frontier of London’s hospitality world moves inexorably eastward — we fully expect some future Tablet incarnation to beam news of a desperately hip boutique hotel somewhere in the North Sea directly to your cerebral cortex. That day’s a long way off, alas — for now Shoreditch, and Terence and Vicki Conran’s Boundary hotel, is far enough east for most of us.
With three restaurants serving some twelve rooms and five suites, Boundary’s got the ratio just about right — one a proper fine dining establishment, one a rooftop grill (not exactly an everyday London occurrence), and one, Albion, a bakery and “caff,” open from eight in the morning until late in the evening, providing fuel for your daily expeditions. Shoreditch is gallery central, home to some innovative small retail, and the ever-increasing density of restaurants and bars shows why three is the right number for Boundary.
Eventually, however, it’s off to bed, and the rooms make a mockery of the cramped quarters familiar from central London — the standard rooms feature genuine elbow room, and the suites are positively spacious. You wouldn’t call it typical luxury living, quite, though not for any lack of comfort; it’s just that the design is utterly contemporary, with rooms in several distinct styles, from Bauhaus to Shaker to mod-British. And the building is, quietly, a bit of a marvel — luxe touches like radiant underfloor heating accompany green measures, including a borehole drawing cooling water from the subterranean aquifer. From here you can see the future.
