Zedwell Tottenham Court Road has opened as London’s first underground hotel

There’s quite a lot going on underneath London at any given time, whether on a tube line, in a bar or on a Victorian street buried by new developments, and now the subterranean scene has got a new addition: Zedwell Tottenham Court Road. Following the spirit of the hotel’s Piccadilly site, the new Zedwell is centred around well-being and prioritising a good night’s sleep.

Guests of the hotel will arrive via the Great Russell Street entrance before taking a lift down to their ‘cocoons’, windowless rooms that provide an escape from the bustling central London streets. Each room has a clean, minimalist look with white walls, mood lighting and oak wood furnishings. The hotel has been designed with the help of leading psychologists and sleep experts, whose influence shines through in the little details. For example, there are no gadgets or TVs in the rooms that could disturb sleep, the sheets are made with luxury Egyptian cotton, and the ambient lighting is based on the circadian rhythm.

Prices at Zedwell Tottenham Court Road range from £160 during off-peak times and from £250 during the summer and Christmas and rooms can accommodate up to four guests. If you do ever want to leave your cocoon during your stay, you’re just moments away from Tottenham Court Road Station, Oxford Street and Soho. This may be the ideal retreat for anyone after some peace and quiet in the middle of a metropolis.
