Part of the Hyatt group, their boutique Andaz chain is not well represented in Europe, having just Amsterdam and the Andaz in London, connected to Liverpool Street station.

A sympathetic and modern conversion of a railway hotel, the building is imposing from the outside. Once through the revolving doors the scale of the changes are clear. High ceilings, lifts and understated design details abound.

There is no check-in desk – as is true in all Andaz properties, but staff hover and collect passengers to be checked in. My recent stay offered a room on the 6th floor on the back of the hotel. As the hotel is a conversion, there are some odd features in some of the rooms. The hotel boasts its own Masonic temple.

My room was long and thin, with a sloping ceiling and two porthole windows having views of adjacent office buildings. I blocked the light out using the louvres fitted to the window frames.

The bedroom had a desk, plenty of hanging space and the free mini-bar which is a feature of Andaz properties.

The comfy chairs faced away from the TV, but the TV was visible from the bed. Despite the small windows there was plenty of lighting so the room felt bright.

The white tiled bathroom had both a tub and shower. The toilets work on suction so can be a little noisy.

The WiFi was down for several hours after I arrived but came up that evening. The Hyatt Diamond Breakfast did not start until 7am and so was too late for me.

Overall I slept well and work refreshed the next morning.
