Shangri-La Hotel at the Shard (London), England

The Shard is known as providing some of the best views across London, and guests can take it one step further by taking in the stunning skyline from the luxury of the Shangri-La’s infinity Skypool on level 52 of the five star hotel.

The Skypool is one of the biggest draws to the hotel but its other strength comes in the form of its excellent food and drink offerings: TING can be found on level 35, LÁNG is a lovely artisan cafe, and GŎNG takes the crown as London’s highest champagne and cocktail bar, situated on the 52nd floor.

Each room is uniquely decorated and features a noted Shangri-La bed, free WiFi, marble bathroom, underfloor heating and, of course, a set of binoculars to take in the view of the city from the floor-to-ceiling windows.
