The Laslett, a hotel by Living Rooms, has opened in Notting Hiill, London. Taking its name from well-loved local Rhaune Laslett – a community activist and organiser of the original Notting Hill Festival, which went on to become the Carnival – The Laslett takes inspiration from the area’s vibrant cultural heritage while also capturing its new wave of creative cool. The hotel’s location not only places guests at the heart of West London, but at the doorstep of everything that central London has to offer, with the West End a mere 10 minutes away.
The 51 bedrooms, like others in the Living Rooms collection, look and feel as though they could be straight out of a stylish friend’s townhouse, with modern furniture from British designers including Pinch and Race Furniture alongside more personal quirks – well-chosen books for bedtime reading, proper blankets, curiosities from local antiques dealers, and curated photographs and artworks on the walls. The bathrooms offer full-size Neal’s Yard Remedies products and in every room is the much coveted Living Rooms ‘Big Bar’ of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ snacks, ‘help me’ remedies and drinks. The dynamic ground floor at The Laslett is more neighbourhood hangout than hotel lobby – incorporating a curated British library, walls of art, the Henderson bar (pictured top) and coffee shop serving dishes supplied by Sally Clarke and her Bakery that will evolve throughout the day.
