Qbic Hotel London - A fun, friendly city stay with a bar you want to hang out in with free bike hire and plenty more to inspire you.
Qbic Hotel London is owned and managed by Nathalie Sexton.
Qbic London City is a mellow oasis to return to after either a gruelling day of work or a sensory overload from eating, drinking, cycling or general East London adventures.
Inside you’ll find you can just chill out in the friendly common area and take your pick from the restaurant, with coffee and cocktails served in Motley Restaurant – a hangout that’s become something of a local hotspot. This is a great place to eat, drink, socialise or work, and is perfect for both informal meet ups as well as more special occasions too.
There are also plenty of events on every week to feed your creative hunger: from crafty workshops, to inspiring masterclasses, from the best of London’s up-and-coming musical talent, to mouth-watering supper clubs.
For the rooms, pick a fun room for space enough to jump around in and spread your wings; there’s even room for yoga. As well as a super king, super comfy bed you’ll find a chic bathroom with a strong rain shower and toiletries, and there’s a sofa, table and chair, plus an LED TV and plenty more. The cosy room is slightly smaller and includes a window for gazing out onto the London streets. If the only window you need is your laptop or smartphone, a smart room matches your mindset; it doesn’t have a view as it doesn’t have a window. The super beds have comfy mattresses that are made by hand using raw materials which are all from renewable and sustainable sources.
Guests can make use of organic toiletries from Stop The Water While Using Me. These products are not only a gentle prod for us all, but the company is also involved in lots of great projects to provide clean water to places where it’s most needed. On top if this the Hansgrohe Airdrop shower heads in the bathrooms mix air with the water, reducing the amount of water used by 25% per minute without affecting water pressure or shower quality. This is the shower equivalent of having your cake and eating it.
Part of the electricity at the hotel is generated from the solar panels on the roof and all of the lighting is LED and energy efficient, running on lighting saving sensory system controls. Electric car charging points are also available.
Cleaning rooms and changing towels and bed linen all use up energy and water. Therefore, in order to conserve what we can the hotel has introduced an initiative to encourage hotel guests to make greener decisions. Anyone staying more than one night and chooses not to have their room serviced can claim a free drink at the bar.
This East London hotel is on the footsteps of the City of London and at the heart of what is London’s most lively square mile with some of the city’s best street food, art galleries, boutiques, creative businesses and nightlife, all glued together with local people who make it more than just a tourist spot. And what better way to see the city than by bike? And at Qbic 10 recycled, fully serviced bikes and helmets are available to guests during your day, so jump on and explore London for free! You also might be interested to know that every decision at the hotel each decision is challenged for its environmental impact to see if there is a greener solution available.
