Robert De Niro is reportedly about to open a boutique hotel in London.

If it is anything like The Greenwich Hotel — the Hollywood superstar’s luxurious venture in New York — we are in for a treat.

The Manhattan five-star retreat in the popular TriBeCa district, has a country house style. Built to blend in with the classic façades of the former market area, its hand-moulded brick walls create a rustic look inside and out.

The bedrooms are fitted out with Carrara marble and Moroccan tiles, while the bamboo spa was built by Japanese craftsmen.

If the Dirty Grandpa and GoodFellas star is looking for suitable premises, The Academy hotel in Gower Street, Bloomsbury, is for sale at £13 million. With a little De Niro stardust, this could be the new celebrity magnet.
