Set in a pair of redbrick townhouses built in the 19th century, this luxe hotel in chic Knightsbridge is 8 minutes’ walk from South Kensington tube station and a 5-minute walk from the Victoria and Albert Museum. Ornate rooms with original art and designer toiletries offer free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and Bose speakers, plus minibars, and tea and coffeemaking facilities. Opulent suites add sitting areas, fireplaces and Nespresso machines, while an upgraded suite has a private terrace, a cocktail bar and an airy living room. Room service is available. A refined lounge features a bar and serves breakfast and afternoon tea. There’s also a garden.
This London hotel features just 28 rooms and suites – but each has a unique personality. Accommodations are individually decorated and all showcase bold, classic prints (whether in the wallpaper, carpet, duvets or curtains), and in-room amenities include flat-screen TVs, mineral water (still and sparkling), 24-hour room service and marble bathrooms. Guests of The Egerton House Hotel love the personalized service here: Visitors are welcomed with a complimentary drink of choice, and the afternoon tea is described as “divine.” You should also expect to be greeted by Milly, the hotel’s resident Jack Russell terrier. Located down the street from Harrods and just south of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, this boutique property with a red brick facade and white trim is surrounded by shops and eateries. If you’d prefer to dine on-site, you can enjoy a meal in the comfort of your room or head to the bar and lounge area for its light fare menu.
