PAUSE Visits: The Z Hotel Shoreditch

The term “affordable business hotel”, for most of us, will typically conjure up images of generic, lifeless, and somewhat sterile lumps of concrete that typically reside on the outskirts of any given city. While this is still a model that many such hotels continue to stick to, The Z Hotel group are miles ahead, pulling us into the 21st century with a practical, contemporary, design-led approach.

With several options dotted across the UK, their locations offer compact, affordable, boutique accommodations with the business traveller in mind. Don’t let cost-effective nature put you off, however; all rooms feature en-suite power showers, large HD TVs, luxury finishes and, of course, complimentary Wi-Fi.

While you’ll not find much in terms of restaurants or bars in the typical form, they offer complimentary cheese and wine every evening across their London properties alongside a bountiful breakfast that’ll set anyone up for a successful morning.

This, alongside rewards schemes, incredibly efficient check-in and other minor details (down to the most thought through in-room plug socket placement we’ve experienced) demonstrates that the Z understands their customer better than most.

Business or pleasure, one night or a week, the Z offers value for money that you’d be hard done by to replicate in the capital.
