“As an architect, you design for the present, with an awareness of the past, for a future which is essentially unknown.” This famous quote by British star architect Norman Foster summarizes the history of a new 5-star hotel in London. The splendid headquarters of the Port of London Authority, which were designed by Sir Edwin Cooper and built between 1912 and 1922, are today home to the Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square.

I stayed at this magnificent hotel during a recent business trip to London. The hotel, which opened in January 2017, is centrally located within steps of the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and the River Thames. The Bank of England is only a 10-minute walk away. Guests who love to go shopping or to the theatres can take the underground at Tower Hill, change at Embankment and get off at Oxford Circus or Piccadilly Circus.


The Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square offers 100 rooms and suites, 10 spacious residences and a private member’s club. An exclusive spa offers various treatments from exclusive brand partners, including a luxurious hammam that blends the traditions of the Moroccan and Turkish baths in a contemporary setting, as well as Dr Burgener Switzerland face and body treatments.

The ten luxury residential-style accommodations, located between the third and seventh floors of Ten Trinity Square, feature open-plan living areas, dining rooms, fully equipped kitchens and up to four bedrooms. London’s leading designers, including Martin Kemp Design, Linley, Richmond International and Fox Linton, have created elegant and refined interiors with an individual style for each residence.

(Above) I loved the spacious executive suite (53 to 67 square meters) very much. The contemporary interior design in white, grey and brown reminded me of the Christian Dior boutique in Paris, white and grey being two signature colours of the famous maison. The long desk was perfect for my computer working day, the Wi-fi worked perfectly well in the suite. The bed was very comfortable and the bed linen of excellent quality. The six pillows on the bed have been designed for a better sleep quality (e. g. for side-sleepers).
