A brand new hotel set within a stone’s throw away from St. Paul’s Cathedral, The Lost Property hotel (a part of the Curio Collection by Hilton) boasts 134 beautifully furnished, modern rooms, with the overall ethos promoting escapism, relaxation and losing oneself in the Big Smoke.

The Hotel does well to feature subtle nods to all things ‘lost’: from featuring ‘lost’ recipes such as Baked Alaska and Bouillabaisse on the menu, to having portraits of Dodos and Bowler hats, alongside sculptures depicting Bank Underground station – a place that can quickly become a labyrinth if you take the wrong turn. Featuring gorgeous, eccentric sculptures and artwork designed to inspire one to lose one’s self in the hustle and bustle of the City of London.

The hotel is home to the Found Bar & Restaurant, as well as the Tattle Coffee shop for all your food and drink needs. The property is close to some nearby attractions including Somerset House, Sky Garden and the Savoy Theatre.

How To Get There

Lost Property is on the corner of Ludgate Hill, less than 30 seconds walk from St. Paul’s Cathedral. The closest stations include; City Thameslink, St. Paul’s and Chancery Lane, with a plethora of buses catering to the area too.


There are 134 rooms that accommodate two people per room, and start from a normal guest room all the way up to the St. Paul’s Junior Suite. Depending on when you stay, rooms start from £170 per night. I stayed in one of the Deluxe rooms on the 6th (and highest) floor, which had some gorgeous natural lighting and the following amenities: a 50-inch HD TV that swings out of the wall, an in-room safe, a mini bar, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, an alarm clock, a tea and coffee maker, an espresso machine, robes and slippers, and 300 thread-count sheets.

The firm bed was incredibly comfortable and had good access to plug sockets with accompanying USB sockets to charge phones and accessories. I loved that the bathroom used toiletries from Penhaligons too – a real luxe touch there! They also had my favourite scent too which is Quercus – coincidence? Maybe! The gold furnishings in the room and bathroom were a beautiful finishing touch too and added a sense of refinement to the rooms. I would have loved if the mirror space was a bit more accessible, however, as it seemed to be squeezed in right next to the door and in front of the wardrobe, meaning I was very close up to the mirror most of the time when trying on clothes. But it wasn’t something that caused a huge issue.

I had a lovely view of the OXO Tower and the London Eye too, and at night when the City lit up, it was absolutely spellbinding!


The Found restaurant sources its food from local London markets, with the venue being open to both hotel guests and non-hotel guests alike. The food is contemporary, with the menu seemingly changing every night which I thought was cool, and It features fun foods that aren’t commonly seen on menus these days, such as Baked Alaska (which I’d never had before) and other food pairings that were seemingly lost in history. The meals are pricey I won’t lie, but I would consider it fine dining, which would typically align with premium prices.


The service was absolutely wonderful! I was greeted with a smile and shown around the hotel, learning more about its inception. I used room service during the evening which was timely and tasty, and the staff were incredibly helpful and super friendly towards myself and other guests. A special shoutout to the staff who worked in the bar who made me an iced coffee for breakfast even though it wasn’t on the menu!


Where to even begin? Although the hotel is strictly no-pets, they do have a lot of other things going on with regard to accessibility. I’ve created a bullet point list for ease:

  • Elevators
  • Accessible Gym
  • Accessible ‘same-level’ access to the hotel
  • Hotel room doors that provide 32 inches of width
  • Audible alerts in the elevators.
  • Bathroom and bedrooms doors at least 32 inches wide
  • Emergency pull cords in bathrooms
  • Evacuation chair available to evacuate a disabled person
  • Ramp entrance into the building
  • Lowered buttons in elevator, sink, toilet and peephole in door
  • Visual alarms for the hearing impaired in rooms, corridors and main areas of the hotel.
  • Service support animals are available
  • Rooms accessible for wheelchairs

In conclusion, Lost Property is a gorgeous boutique hotel that I would recommend staying in if you want to take a bit of a break from home (like I tend to do most of the time lmao). It’s proximity to the City of London makes it great a great location for brands and freelancers to stay at, and the coffee shop and restaurants both offer great-tasting, quality food. A quality gem in the City of London!
