Shangri-La The Shard
Located on floors 34 to 52 of the iconic Shard building, the luxurious Shangri-La hotel is both a part of the capital's famed skyline and a prime location to take it all in, 125 metres high or more. With floor-to-ceiling windows on all sides, you can indulge in the breath-taking views at all times of day, from the comfort of your room or while taking a dip in the infinity pool – the highest hotel pool in Western Europe. If that's not enough panorama for you, you can even head up to The Shard's viewing platform.
The sumptuous rooms and suites, each with its own design, feature boatloads of elegant luxury, from marble-clad en suite bathrooms with heated floors and toilet seats, mirrors with integrated TV screens, Chinese tea sets and Nespresso coffee machines to Shangri-La's own beds with special body contouring technology and even a pair of binoculars to take a closer look at the sights around, such as Tower Bridge, St. Paul's Cathedral and the River Thames. Further amenities include a gym, meeting rooms, in-room spa treatments, three restaurants and a lounge bar.
Shangri-La is right next to the London Bridge railway and tube station and within walking distance of Borough Market, the Tower of London, Big Ben, The London Eye, Tate Modern and other famous landmarks.
