The room also had many cute pieces of vintage furniture including a Smeg mini-fridge.
We loved how the bathroom door was labelled 'Wash & Brush'!
We also loved that the room was filled with some more beautiful art pieces. Artist Residence really do live up to their name! Our personal favourite was this one:
The bathroom had a massive rainfall shower and all the toiletries were made in the UK:
And the toiletries all came in big bottles - we recently read a very good blog post about how to be environmentally friendly whilst travelling; one of the points was to steer clear of hotels which offer tiny bottles of shampoo/conditioner - as these are very wasteful, plastic wise.
So we were pleased to see that the Artist Residence had large bottles, and that the products smelt divine.
Located in the cellar of Artist Residence is Clarendon Cocktail Cellar which serves the most delicious cocktails in a cool, suave setting. We went for a cocktail on a Tuesday evening and found out that it was 'Taste Tuesday': every Tuesday, the cocktail artists go down to the local markets to pick the freshest ingredients to create brand new cocktails with.
My Un-Earthed was absolutely divine - that may not be that surprising as I absolutely love bitter flavours, however, I have often tried something that claimed to be 'lemony' or 'grapefruity' or 'bitter' and been disappointed with the sweetness of it; not so here! It was perfectly bitter.
Breakfast was delicious. I had poached eggs with avocado, rocket and chilli on rye bread, grapefruit juice and fresh coffee. It was all perfect.
Artist Residence Hotel is in the absolute perfect location. It manages to be simultaneously in the centre of London but still in a peaceful area.
And the Natural History Museum and the V&A are only 30 minutes walk away.
Honestly, the location of Artist Residence alone was enough to impress us, but add the comfiness and coolness of the hotel on top of this and you can see why we absolutely loved everything about our stay and think you will too!
