Visiting the newly opened M Hotel

The Hotel Nanny was lucky enough to have a tour around the newly opened M Hotel — M is Montcalm's spirited younger sibling. Same DNA, different personality. Strikingly original and supremely stylish, it's a bold new landmark for London.

Soaring above Tech City's start-ups and the creative clusters of Shoreditch, this is M's natural home. It embodies the area's restless energy, but adds a certain sophistication (some family traits are deeply ingrained).

Its proximity to the City, Eurostar's St Pancras terminal and the underground network via nearby Old Street makes it a great base for business. But it's as much a place to play as to stay, with a spa, pool and two bars and restaurants - one set to be a hip new Silicon roundabout rendezvous, the other a seventeenth floor show-stopper with a Michelin starred chef and mesmerising views.

269 beautifully designed rooms are the essence of contemporary comfort, each one enhanced with intelligent technology. Naturally, WiFi is complimentary throughout.

The Hotel Nanny’s personal recommendation is to get yourself down to the amazing spa and pool — they really haven’t held back here on the design and luxurious feel to the place — in one word divine!
