Why We Love This Hotel

  • This boutique hotel is housed in a former Victorian grammar school designed by the architect of the Old Bailey -- the refurbishment cost £50 million and took five years
  • Baluchi Restaurant, which serves authentic pan-Asian food, occupies the vaulted-ceilinged great hall
  • The Naanery serves freshly baked artisan breads daily
  • The Shard is less than five minutes' walk away and the Tower of London and Borough Market are less than 10 minutes' walk away


The LaLiT London is a new luxury hotel in the shadows of The Shard and iconic Tower Bridge.

This boutique hotel is housed in a Victorian grammar school, with red brickwork and white stone details. Designed by EW Mountford, architect of the Old Bailey, it is Grade II-listed and has been converted at the cost of £50 million. Inside, it boasts bespoke Indian art and vaulted ceilings.

Baluchi Restaurant, formerly the great hall where students once ate school dinners, is now an pan-Indian restaurant, while The Naanery bread bar serves freshly baked artisan breads that can be accompanied by a glass of wine.

There are two bars. The former headmaster's office is now a sophisticated cognac and champagne bar with an intricate mother of pearl ceiling, appropriately called the Headmaster's Room. The Teacher's Room serves a range of cocktails and mocktails.

Each of the 70 ornamented spacious bedrooms, which are called Classrooms by the hotel, has individual décor and style, but all feature Nespresso coffee machines and Wi-Fi access.

Rejuve, the basement spa, offers a holistic experience that combines Eastern and Western therapies. Traditional Indian ayurvedic treatments and yoga is available. There is also a 24-hour gym.

The Tower of London and The Shard are both less than 10 minutes' walk from the hotel, while Borough Market, Shakespeare's Globe, St Paul's Cathedral and the Tate Modern are all less than 30 minutes' walk away.
