The signature style at the Leeds Mal pushes all the usual Gallic buttons, from the French-speaking elevator to the classic dark-wood brasserie and bar. Rooms in this grand Victorian red-brick – once the city bus company’s offices – are in subtle, earthy colours, and the check-tile bathrooms feature amazingly fast-filling baths and serious power-showers. Business visitors during the week (working off stress in the cutely named ‘Gymtonic’) give way to more of a shopping and clubbing crowd at weekends, and the location is great for the city buzz, although the hotel’s restaurant and bar also get plenty of foot-traffic of their own.
