Cosy, vintage, young...

Visiting London for a short stay but want a room in a buzzing hotel, where creatives are welcome and young people from all over the world meet?

Green Rooms can offer minimalistic simplicity entwined with vintage details, in the middle of a lively international neighbourhood.

Where is it?

Green Rooms is conveniently located in the heart of Wood Green, North London, just opposite the Wood Green underground station. It’s a busy neighbourhood, where you can find international restaurants, a number of shops and a shopping centre just five minutes away from the hotel - perfect for your shorter or longer stay.

Style

The hotel combines vintage simplicity with bold artist works, serving as a background to the exhibitors' works, which you can find all around the place.

Green Rooms' entrance

When you enter you'll feel as if you’ve visited a contemporary gallery - many artists’ works can be found across the different floors. We definitely recommend dedicating an hour to just walking around the hotel, exploring the art. 

The rooms are cosy and minimalistic, with the old bones of the building showing in the original wood flooring. This style is complemented by simple vintage furniture and bespoke lightning by the interior label Folk.

In the en-suite rooms, you’ll find a modern bathroom with a shower cabin and enough space to stretch your legs after a long day. 

Food and Drink

Each individual room comes with its own kettle and a selection of tea, coffee and milk, to make your morning a little bit easier.

Breakfast is an individual experience, for which you’ll need to be up and downstairs between 8-11am (12 pm on Sundays). The menu features different art periods, meaning you can fit your art inspiration in your breakfast. Are you a ‘Classic’ - English breakfast, Poached eggs or Omelettes? Or are you a ‘Romantic’ - Eggs Benedict, Eggs Florentine, Greek yoghurt and granola?

Maybe you favour the Purists - quinoa salad, vegetable wrap or avocado on toast. Or your mind wanders with the Surrealism of salmon, sweet potatoes and waffles. 

Whatever you fancy there is plenty of choices. For lunch and dinner, the lounge transforms into a Japanese Kitchen. Oita - Simply Cosy offers their signature dish - Karaage chicken but also many favourite classics such as gyoza and teriyaki chicken or salmon, as well as a tempting mochi ice to finish your meal.

The bar is open till late, welcoming the artists of London and Wood Green and serving a variety of beer, wine and classics.

Which room?

Corner room

Green Rooms have a variety of options suitable for all kinds of travellers' budgets - you can’t go wrong with a standard room, which has a three-quarter bed. Go for a corner room, if you want a king-size bed and more space. If you want your own bathroom you’d be better off upgrading to en-suite, which is a similar size to the corner room. 

Studio 2

If you’re visiting for longer or with your family, or simply want your own art space, the Studio Apartments will suit best. It includes a mezzanine, double beds and a workspace area plus an en-suite bathroom. Studio 2 even has a small kitchenette.

If you want to meet new people or just need a bed for the night, Green Rooms offer two dormitories located on the first floor. There is an allocated storage space for each guest, so no need to worry where you’d put your belongings.
