IT used to be that staying overnight in Hackney meant sleeping on a friend’s sofa or staying up and partying until dawn. Not anymore. The borough has a wide range of accommodation to suit all pockets.
International chains like Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn now have a presence in the borough, alongside exclusive boutique hotels such as the Conran Boundary development, Shoreditch House and The Hoxton Hotel.
There are also alternatives from New York style serviced apartments, to short-term lets, homestay and sofa-surfing. Accommodation options in the borough range from deluxe to redux.
