Located in the heart of London, only a few minutes from the famous Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square and St. Paul’s Cathedral – ME Hotel boasts a cosmopolitan atmosphere in a prime location. Part of the worldwide Melia Group
Design and atmosphere
Designed by the iconic world-famous architects Foster and Partners, ME Hotel offers a unique cosmopolitan atmosphere, which radiates urban elegance and modern city chic. There is luxury at every corner, with modern chic white decor, richly textured walls and fur throws throughout.
The ME Hotel offers numerous impressive dining options – open to both guests and the public. The Cucina Asellina is the hotel’s Italian restaurant, serving authentic, creative and signature dishes from their galleried kitchen. This restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and has a lovely relaxed atmosphere.
A more formal dining option and perfect for meat lovers; the STK serves top of the range meat dishes in a contemporary stunning environment. For those who enjoy a lively setting after dinner, STK is the place to be from 10pm, when the atmosphere is transformed with music from the resident DJ.
For those seeking some light tapas and a cocktail alongside London’s breathtaking views, the exclusive Radio rooftop bar is the place to be. The only rooftop bar in The Strand is positioned on the 10th floor of the hotel – accessible by a private express lift. Whether you’re looking for a bite to eat or just a casual drink, Radio is the perfect place to unwind and relax whilst enjoying those stunning views from comfortable seating areas inside and outside. During colder months there are patio heaters and warm rugs in the outside areas. It is a popular and trendy hang-out so unless you are staying in the hotel, be prepared to queue for access at busy times and exclusive use for weddings is rarely on offer.
Weddings and Events
Any of the three bars and restaurants can accommodate wedding parties and the Radio bar would be amongst the most stunning and special places in London for a wedding. However in such a popular hotel it can be a challenge to arrange exclusive use. For larger weddings, follow the curved staircase down from the main entrance and you will discover a fantastic banqueting hall. It has it’s own private foyer for drinks receptions, a cloakroom, luxurious toilets and flexible options for the main room through the use of moving walls.
All 157 rooms were designed by the famous Foster and Partners, making their decor and design top of the range. Referred to as urban refuges in the heart of London, the chic bedrooms do not fail to supply to urban traveller with pure luxury. Floor to ceiling windows enable guests to look out onto the stunning London skyline, while the atmospheric lighting adds a touch of modern magic. The hotel takes technology to the next level with a tablet controlling lighting, heating and audio systems, and can pre-load the audio visual system with your favourite PlayStation games and films.
