UP IN THE AIR

Bored with the bourgeois homogeneity of so many central London hotels? Then A Room for London atop the Queen Elizabeth Hall on the Southbank might do the trick. With commanding views of St Paul’s Cathedral, this whimsical, temporary hotel room was dreamed up by David Kohn Architects in collaboration with artist Fiona Banner. It resembles a boat washed up by a freak tide on the Thames and has proven a poetic addition to the Southbank skyline. While it may be lofty and conceptual, it’s a surprisingly cozy space. A night in the quirky room will cost 300 pounds, or $454 at current exchange, for up to two people and will be sold via ballots on a regular basis throughout the year.
