Developed by London based property developers, Dominvs Group, Lost Property marks the latest addition to Curio Collection by Hilton’s growing hotel portfolio of one-of-a-kind hotels.
The hotel’s interior is the result of a partnership between Ica and Rani Ahluwalia, founder and creative director of Key interior and Designs, and captures the vibrancy of the local area. In this striking grade II listed building, guests can choose between 145 uniquely designed rooms and suites across six categories and six floors.
The bright and light bedrooms are sleek and modern with marble bathrooms and an industrial touch – a nod to the hotel’s urban surroundings. Bespoke red and blue colour schemes were carefully selected to reflect the city’s heritage, and eye-catching colour-pops and patterns contrast with clean lines and timeless neutral walls.
The interiors celebrate the intricacies of lost craftsmanship and innovative design, echoing the shapes and architectural forms found in St Paul’s Cathedral and the neighbouring streets.
The bespoke and colourful artwork displayed throughout the hotel is eccentric and eclectic – a contemporary reflection of London’s rich history.
The hotel’s atmospheric ground-floor bar and restaurant, Found, embraces these themes, offering a classic food and drinks menu with a nostalgic twist. The bespoke bar is eight metres long and crafted out of bright blue resin, with attractive Murano glass pendants creating mood lighting and a cosy feel.
The centrepiece of this social space is an ornate chandelier, crafted from Murano glass and made of individual figurines of extinct birds forming the shape of a hovering eagle. The extinct birds represent a lost natural treasure, immortalised in this quirky hotel, and echoed in the bespoke wallpaper specially designed for Lost Property by Timorous Beasties.
As well as a bar and restaurant, Lost Property also boasts a premium coffee house, Tattle – a true social hub of the hotel. The combination of earthy deep greens and tactile timber finishes, and the backdrop decorated with teacups with hand-painted ‘lost’ quotes, offer a relaxed bistro-style space with an ‘al fresco’ feel, a go-to spot to catch up with friends.
“We are looking forward to opening Lost Property this spring and celebrating the team’s passion for exceptional food, drink and service,” says Nader Neishabouri, Hotel Manager of Lost Property London. “Lost Property will capture the imagination of our guests and the hotel’s location in the heart of historical London, will ensure guests enjoy an unforgettable stay that is full of surprises!”
