With staycations being all the rage right now, many are seeking out the perfect UK-based sites from which to escape the trials of the WFH lifestyle. Well, if this is you, London’s The Standard is the next place you should visit.
Situated in the buzzy surroundings of King’s Cross and occupying what was once Camden Town Hall Annex, The Standard London is a subtle ode to its building’s history – which was filled with intellect and the sounds of punk rock – and its infamous location. With the rounded interiors having been dreamed up by the talented Shawn Hausman, visitors can expect to enter into a transportive space, filled with a warm library complete with an in-house librarian and recording studio-esque, The Library Lounge. And, while history is a key aspect of the hotel’s aesthetic, that is not all that there is to see. With a modern edge in mind, the 266-room establishment also offers the delightful culinary masterpieces crafted by Michelin-starred chef Peter Sanchez Iglesias, served in the scenic 10th-floor restaurant, all of which are injected with his Spanish heritage and affinity for Mexican dishes.
And, to top it all off, staycation goers have an array of spaces, including an art-laden lobby and serene terrace, from which to relax, making The Standard London the only place to consider when booking your next getaway.
