The Exhibitionist: in the French quarter.
What a funny name for a hotel! In reality, it makes an allusion to its location, just a stone’s throw from the greatest museums in London: the V&A and the Science Museum…having opened on 10th November, it has 37 bedrooms and 4 suites on offer. Whilst it may be housed in a rather patrician 19th century building, audacious design pervades the hotel straight from the lobby. Witness surprise after surprise, firstly with a series of astonishing sculptures, of a life-size bull to a red man that welcome guests, and let’s not forget the wall of acidulous bottles behind the bar. In the corridors leading off the bedrooms, creativity comes into its own. The 1st floor boasts giant medical capsules that line the walls, whilst the space of the 2nd is interspersed with a succession of mini mirrors and classic paintings…And the lift is carpeted with synthetic grass!
