This elegant boutique hotel occupying three restored Victorian townhouses in central London is a "refreshing antidote to identikit minimalism”, says
The Guardian. Expect period furniture, friendly staff and views over some of the city’s more leafy neighbourhoods. Paddington Rail Station and its tube lines are just a few minutes' walk.
Rooms and suites in this tasteful spot have handmade canopied wooden beds -- including four-posters -- mahogany furniture, and limestone-clad bathrooms. Wi-Fi is free, there are complimentary cookies and bottles of water at turndown and DVD players are available on request. Upgrade to a Deluxe Four Poster Suite for a small separate sitting room and room for up to two children in a roll away bed. Breakfast is served in a cosy breakfast room or guests can take it in bed at no extra charge.
Warm touches elsewhere in the hotel include a welcome drink on arrival, an honesty bar in the lounge (think decanters of fine whisky and sherry), real keys rather than swipe cards and drawing rooms with open fires and oil paintings. In-room treatments can be arranged and there’s personal training available (extra charges apply).
The on-site Kiyan London restaurant serves breakfast, plus a set menu at lunch and dinner, including smoked salmon, tagliatelle and chocolate brownies for dessert. There is an impressive afternoon tea served every day with tiers of scones and jam, macaroons or fig and rosemary shortbread, accompanied by flutes of Champagne.
Further afield, there are lots of eateries nearby. Book ahead for The Ledbury, a two Michelin Star pub in Notting Hill that has an 8-week waiting list. For something more restrained, Maggie Jones is a well-priced French bistro in Kensington. During the day, explore the greenery of Hyde Park, or head to the Royal Albert Hall to see a concert. Oxford Street, Park Lane and High Street Kensington are all nearby for shopping fans, and Portobello Road, with one of the world’s best street markets is walking distance.
