This new arts hotel in a converted art deco showroom is a bargain by London standards – especially for artists and creatives, who are offered discount rates
With every inch of Hackney now flooded with craft beers and beard oil, the tide of gentrification is ebbing north through Haringey and into Wood Green, a process hastened by the recent arrival of all-night tubes on the Piccadilly line. And now that Dalston has a Premier Inn – unforgivably lamestream – it falls to Wood Green to offer up a new model for a hipster hotel.
A minute’s walk from the handsome curved facade of the tube station is a big block of 1930s art deco, originally built as a showroom for newfangled electronic goods. It’s now been renovated into Green Rooms, a hotel featuring 22 doubles, two studio apartments and two dormitories.
