The Shard is the tallest building in Europe and one of the most recent additions to London’s skyline. The Shangri-La Hotel occupies floors 34 to 52 of the building and is the first Shangri-La Hotel in the UK. Staying here is truly a unique experience, offering some of the best views any structure in London has to offer.

The rooms are sleek and contemporary, and all of them feature floor-to-ceiling windows offering unparalleled panoramic views. The best ones are to be found from the Iconic City View rooms, from which you can see the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, St Pauls, and more.

You can expect an impeccable standard of comfort across the board, with the suites going above and beyond. As well as finer sheets and more exclusive toiletries, the suites also come with a bag of complimentary luxury beauty products when you stay more than three nights.

In keeping with the Shangri-La brand, the hotel restaurants and bars have an Asian theme, blended with English and European influences. In particular, don’t miss out on Gong, London’s highest cocktail bar. There is an excellent gym and a large swimming pool, both – of course – offering top-notch views.

Shangri La At The Shard is located on the South Bank, further east than Vauxhall. It sits across the river from Tower Bridge, close to several bus and Underground stations. It’s about 20 minutes on the bus to Shoreditch and about half an hour to Vauxhall, Dalston, and Soho. This makes it a perfect choice if you want to try out as many of London’s gayborhoods as possible, and it is also a great base for sightseeing.
