Hotel Review: The Red Lion in Leytonstone, London

Who doesn’t like an old-school London boozer? We certainly do. That’s why we popped down to have a look at The Red Lion in East London. The masterminds behind this 17th-Century built pub recently introduced ten boutique-style, hotel-grade bedrooms and they're as cosy as, well, a British pub on a cold winter night.  The area 7/10 Sitting on Leytonstone High Road, The Red Lion is surrounded by shops, bars and restaurants. Leytonstone station is a three-minute walk, making it easy to...

Hotel Review: The Stratford Hotel, London

The Stratford Hotel is a high-spec, Scandi-meets-New York style hotel designed by SOM – the clever folk behind the iconic Burj Khalifa in Dubai. This shiny, 42-storey skyscraper cuts a prominent shape in the up-and-coming Stratford neighbourhood in London’s East End. The boutique hotel was created by the people behind St Pancras Renaissance Hotel and Chiltern Firehouse.   The area 7/10 When you think of Stratford, you probably think of two things: Westfield Shopping Centre and the 2012 Summer Olympic Games...

Hotel Review: Mama London

Mama London offers five-star urban luxury at bargain-basement prices (for London). Boasting stylish, modern rooms (from £99 a night,) a wacky, open-plan restaurant and Karaoke booths, Mama London is one of the most exciting additions to London's underwhelming budget hotel scene in recent years. TLE recently popped by to see whether the boutique hotel lived up to the hype. The area 8/10 Mama London is close to both Cambridge Heath (four mins walk) and Bethnal Green (12 mins) stations. Although...

Hotel Review: Dream Hollywood

Hollywood is everything you thought it was and more. Yes, there's loads of beautiful, tanned folk with shiny veneers sipping super-food smoothies while walking tiny, well-pruned dogs. There are vegan cafes, beauty salons and yoga studios on every other corner. But there's also hip live-music bars, museums and a string of top-end hotels, like Dream Hollywood – a modern, centrally-located four-star hotel. TLE recently visited to see what it had to offer. The area 9/10 The neon-lit Dream Hollywood hotel...

Review: D Maris Bay, Turkey

D Maris Bay is probably Turkey's most famous five-star hotel. It's got a beach for every star. Three tennis courts. Motorised water scooters that pull you around crystalline seas like a panicked 007. A boutique luxury store on-site. Its own alpine funicular. And (almost) a restaurant for every day of the week (there're six). Famous faces rock up every year – Lara Stone and Eden Dzeko visited recently (not together), and we reckon they'll be back again next year. It's...
