Room2 Chiswick, London

Your conscience won’t so much be clear as glowing when you book a stay at what claims to be the world’s first ‘whole-life, net-zero hotel’. Located in West London, this cross between an apartment and hotel has all the typical comforts you’d expect, such as a fully equipped kitchen, gym with Peloton equipment, and a cafe/ cocktail bar, but the great news is that it’s forecast to use a whopping 89% less energy per m2 than the average UK hotel. It’s also the first hotel in the world to fully account for its entire carbon footprint – all emissions associated with its production, materials, maintenance and operations will equal zero. Rooms from around £116 per night, with a special introductory 25% discount available on all reservations taking place until 28 February 2022; room2.com/chiswick.
