UK: Five-star property Sun Street Hotel, managed by Bespoke Hotels, has opened today on the border of Shoreditch and the City of London.
The 41-bedroom hotel is housed in a restored Georgian terrace within One Crown Place – a development including apartments, offices, retail, hotel and restaurant led by MTD Group.
Headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, MTD Group acquired One Crown Place in 2013 from Sun Street Properties Ltd, a unit of UBS. MTD received approval from Hackney Planning Committee to redevelop the site in 2015, and appointed Bespoke Hotels to manage the hotel in 2018.
Interior design firm Bowler James Brindley have overseen the hotel’s guest rooms, including seven suites. All rooms come with king-size beds, Oxford pillows, illy coffee machine, and Penhaligon toiletries.
A 40-cover restaurant with a courtyard for al fresco dining will be led by chef Stuart Cauldwell, whose menu will showcase seasonal dishes. The hotel’s Sun Deck is reserved exclusively for guests and members during the summer.
Jake Greenall, general manager at Sun Street Hotel, said: “Sun Street is a hotel with a heartbeat, a place where guests are treated like part of the family, not just a room number. It’s a home away from home for our guests, but with the added benefits that a luxury five-star hotel can bring.”
Bespoke Hotels represents over 120 properties worldwide, managing more than 5,000 hotel rooms and £525 million of assets.
