A reflection of the area

In this location, Lost Property will place guests within walking distance of landmarks including St Paul’s Cathedral and close to many restaurants, bars, cafes and members clubs.
The hotel’s interiors were designed by Ica and Rani Ahluwalia, founder and creative director of Key interior and Designs, to fuse the grade II listed building’s heritage with modernity while celebrating lost craftsmanship. Shapes echoing St Paul’s Cathedral and the neighbouring streets have been integrated into the design.

New social venues
Guests are greeted in a lobby designed to instil curiosity upon arrival with Murano glass pendants, colourful rugs and panelling by Artistic Licence.
The hotel will be home to 145 uniquely designed rooms and suites, some with cathedral views, across six categories and spanning six floors. The bright modern rooms will feature marble bathrooms and come with an industrial touch paired with red and blue colour schemes.
Guests and locals will be able to dine at the hotel’s ground-floor bar and restaurant, Found, offering classic French and British dishes and theatrical cocktails in a space featuring bespoke wallpaper by Timorous Beasties, a Murano chandelier made of individual figurines of extinct birds and a bespoke blue resin bar with Murano glass pendants.
