Get Lost: Lost Property Opens In City of London

Ideal for a slick citycation, the capital’s newest hotel comes complete with contemporary bedrooms, atmospheric dining, a premium coffee house and a building steeped in fascinating history

Having just opened its doors to guests this month, the 145-room Lost Property in the heart of City marks the latest addition to Curio Collection by Hilton’s growing hotel portfolio of one-of-a-kind hotels with a coveted location just 100 metres from St Paul’s Cathedral.

Positioned in one of the capital’s oldest historical districts, Lost Property is within easy walking distance of some of the world’s most iconic landmarks – making it ideal for a city adventurer keen to soak up the sights of London. As well as the old, there’s plenty of new excitement to explore too – the area continues to be a hive of activity, with eateries, bars, members clubs and cafes spreading like wildfire.

Located in an area steeped in history and heritage, this interior design partnership between Ica and Rani Ahluwalia, founder and creative director of Key interior and Designs, captures the vibrancy of the local area; where modernity meets legacy and the curious come to play.

In this stunning grade II listed building, 145 uniquely designed rooms and suites spanning across six categories and six floors await to be explored. Providing something for everyone, choose from Guest rooms, Superior Rooms, Deluxe Rooms, Junior Suites, St Paul’s Junior Suites and Family Rooms, of which several have prime views of the cathedral.

On the interiors front, enjoy bright abodes filled with contemporary furnishings – as well as marble bathrooms and an industrial touch – a nod to the hotel’s urban surroundings. Bespoke red and blue colour schemes were carefully selected to reflect the city’s heritage, and eye-catching colour-pops and patterns contrast with clean lines and timeless neutral walls. The interiors celebrate the intricacies of lost craftsmanship and innovative design, echoing the shapes and architectural forms found in St Paul’s Cathedral and the neighbouring streets.

Ideal for anyone with an artistic streak, the bespoke and colourful artwork displayed throughout the hotel is eccentric and eclectic – a contemporary reflection of London’s rich history. Walking through the hotel is comparable to getting lost in an artistic maze with history-rich panels, whimsical animals as well as bowler hats symbolising lost property left in the city. The hotel lobby will instil curiosity upon arrival with its Murano glass pendants, colourful rugs, and panelling designed by Artistic Licence.

The sense of mystery that is embedded in Lost Property’s DNA, runs right through to the hotel’s atmospheric ground-floor bar and restaurant, Found, which offers a classic food and drinks menu with a nostalgic twist. The bespoke bar is eight metres long and crafted out of bright blue resin, with stunning Murano glass pendants creating mood lighting and a cosy feel.

The centrepiece of this social space is an ornate chandelier, crafted from Murano glass and made of individual figurines of extinct birds forming the shape of a hovering eagle. The extinct birds represent a lost natural treasure, immortalised in this quirky hotel, and echoed in the bespoke wallpaper specially designed for Lost Property by Timorous Beasties.

It wouldn’t be a City hotel without a premium coffee house – after all, back in the 18th century these were the talk of the ‘ton’. Pay a visit to Tattle, where people can congregate to gossip and catch up – a true social hub of the hotel. With a separate street entrance for commuters and locals as well as resident guests, Tattle offers healthy breakfasts, light lunches and snacks, all made with locally sourced, organic produce and all available to eat in or take away.

Nader Neishabouri, Hotel Manager of Lost Property London, commented: “We are looking forward to opening Lost Property this spring and celebrating the team’s passion for exceptional food, drink and service. Lost Property will capture the imagination of our guests and the hotel’s location in the heart of historical London, will ensure guests enjoy an unforgettable stay that is full of surprises!”                   

With curiosities around every corner, there’s never been a better time to book a room at this City stay and get Lost in London’s bustling core.
