It's hard to define what makes Threadneedles boutique hotel so special. Perhaps it's the smooth warmth of walnut walls against the cool blonde of a marble floor. Maybe it's the oh-so-deep pile of an oriental carpet that's a contemporary work of art in its own right. Or possibly it's the breathtaking beauty of light filtering through a Nineteenth Century dome of stained glass. Most likely it's not one, but a combination of all these ingredients and more. For the Victorian banking hall turned city boutique hotel is nothing if not a multitude of textures and complementary tones, a perfect blend of past and present. Voted by Conde Nast Traveller as one of the top 50 hotels in the world.
