"A charmer in lovely Little Venice" says Lonely Planet, The Colonnade is a cosy, Victorian hotel in a leafy neighbourhood. This is where Sigmund Freud lived after he first emigrated from Vienna in the 1940s and, despite the hotel’s grand townhouse décor, it still feels very much like a comfortable home-from-home.
Known for its picturesque canals, London’s Little Venice is a tranquil bolthole to the north of Hyde Park. It's an easy walk from the world-famous Lord’s Cricket Ground and London Zoo and the open-air theatre in Regent's Park (open seasonally). Notting Hill and Portobello Road Market are half an hour away on foot and the hotel makes a peaceful sanctuary after a day of exploring London's best shops and markets. Warwick Avenue tube station (on the Bakerloo line) is just around the corner, providing easy access to Bond Street and the West End in 20 minutes.
The hotel has a small restaurant for breakfast and serves traditional British fare all day until 10pm (think favourites such as bangers and mash and fish and chips). Afternoon tea is also available. In the evening, head for the elegant lounge, where there’s a classic Wedgwood fireplace and vintage port on offer.
Each room has been individually designed and features sumptuous fabrics and Victorian-era antiques. Duplex-style suites on the lower floor have soaring ceilings and four poster beds, but you may hear occasional rumbles from passing Underground trains. An original turn-of-the-century elevator delivers guests to the upper floors, where rooms have views over the residential rooftops and leafy trees. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel and bottled water is provided in every room.
