Great Scotland Yard reopens as luxury hotel


Five-star hotel created in police HQ where Rudolf Hess and Ripper investigation held

Hirsch Bedner Associates’ £75m transformation of the former headquarters of the Met Police where the Jack the Ripper crimes were investigated has been unveiled. 

The scheme, which was developed and built by Galliard, has transformed the building which has also been used as offices by the Ministry of Defence.

The project has created a five-star hotel at 1-5 Great Scotland Yard with 153 bedrooms and suites that will be operated by Hyatt. The hotel, which will open later this year, will also feature a main cocktail bar, a whiskey bar, restaurant and library.
