Hotel Amano Covent Garden opens its doors

The 141-room site is housed in what was formerly a 1980s office building known as Drury House

Hotel Amano Covent Garden has officially opened its doors. The new boutique lifestyle hotel is the first international site for Berlin-based hotelier, The Amano Group, which currently has eight hotels in Berlin, one in Munich, and one in Düsseldorf

The new London hotel is described by the group as a “celebration of city life and culture”, featuring “distinctive” art and design features from London-based design studio Woods Bagot. The 141-room site is housed in what was formerly a 1980s office building known as Drury House. 

Its rooftop bar will provide a “creative” cocktail list and bar snacks, offering “impressive” panoramic city views. The basement bar will also host DJ nights on the weekend.

Dinner in the site’s signature restaurant, Penelope’s, opens later this autumn, offering a fusion of Israeli and Spanish cuisine from Amano’s culinary director, Ronen Dovrat Bloch.

Amano said the site is suited for both solo and business travellers, couples and families wanting to explore the capital. Cosy, Comfy or Roomy bedrooms, as well as five Goldy rooms, are on offer for guests. 

Co-founder of The Amano Group, Ariel Schiff, says of the new venture, “As a Berlin-based company, opening our first international property in London was always a natural step for us. 

“Like Berlin, London is a dynamic city known for its thriving nightlife and multicultural community. We felt the spirit of the Amano brand would blend in well here. We’re excited to open our hotel to guests and offer a unique hotel and leisure experience, bringing a taste of Berlin to London.”
