Snazzy pad at the epicentre of Brighton’s buzzing North Laine.

MyHotel (or myhotel, as the owners like to call it) is the perfect fit for Brighton’s North Laine, a district jammed with super cool shops selling ironic, retro-futuristic furniture and clothing. Nowhere else sums up the mood of modern, youthful, urban Brighton quite like it.

Location

Situated opposite Brighton’s landmark public library on pedestrian-friendly Jubilee Square, MyHotel is at the heart of the city’s liveliest quarter, surrounded by shops, bars, restaurants and entertainment venues.

Bedrooms

The bedrooms are very funky. Integral to the feng-shui-friendly concept cooked up by New York designer Karim Rashid are curvy white walls, vibrant splashes of colour, mood lighting and uncompromisingly open plan layouts. While I’m not entirely sure how an open plan en suite contributes to your spiritual wellbeing, it certainly challenges your inhibitions. Technophiles will love the sound systems, free WiFi and other gadgetry.

As the standard doubles are rather small, it’s worth paying extra for a larger room unless you’re travelling extremely lightly. For a treat, you could splash out on one of the suites, created by local artists.

Public areas

Just as the great hotels of the Victorian era were designed to be far grander than their guests’ own homes, MyHotel is aspirational in a thoroughly 21st century way. The lobby is styled like a modern art installation and the vibe as the doors swish open is so cool it almost hurts.

Eating and drinking

The wonderfully sleek, curvy design carries through into Merkaba, a seductive little cocktail bar for style-conscious grown-ups.

Leisure facilities

To help you chill out, there’s a treatment room where you can indulge in an Eastern-style massage using organic products, and a groovy reading room.

Service

The staff are generally friendly and welcoming.

Who stays there

The young and young-at-heart; contemporary style aficionados.

Price advice

Unusually for a Brighton hotel, there’s no two-night-minimum-stay rule at weekends.
