We are delighted to announce that the newly updated Autumn 2015 guides have just gone live on the app and are still only 79p per city per season. From a new hotel in London to a classic restaurant in New York, if you are travelling to any of our 11 cities on business or for a city break or a holiday in September, October or November, this is the travel guide you want to have with you. Below are three of our favourite new reviews to check out.
LONDON – SLEEP
Ace Hotel (pictured)
With Brick Lane on one side and Hackney the other, Hoxton’s Ace Hotel couldn’t be better placed for exploring the thriving culture of London’s East End, not least in the hotel’s lobby which captures the neighbourhood’s laid-back ethos with its relaxed bar and bespoke furniture. Some rooms have record players and a selection of vinyl, and the restaurant, Hoi Polloi, is one of the most talked about in London.
Favourite room: the Superior Double Deluxe rooms come with their own acoustic guitar.

PARIS – DRINK
Frenchie Bar à Vins
At the wine bar offshoot of impossible-to-get-a-table Frenchie restaurant across the street, it’s no reservations and you often have to crowd along the zinc bar before squeezing onto a high wooden table. Interesting wines range from famous names to little-known regions, putting the focus on producers, and the food is wonderful. Try any of the small, daring dishes, like veal sweetbreads with girolles or hake with grapefruit.
Favourite drink: a glass of red from the Aude.

NEW YORK – EAT
The epitome of Old New York: dark and weathered, art-packed walls, candles, white tablecloths and martinis, and an in-house psychic who offers readings upstairs on the way to the restrooms. SoHo may have changed beyond all recognition, but when you’re in the back here with a plate of Creekstone Farms rare steak with frites and a red Sancerre, it feels like Warhol is just around the corner.
Favourite table: the side booths in the back are great, but the burger au poivre – possibly the best burger in the city – is strictly served only at the bar, where the no-reservations stools are highly sought after.
