San Domenico House Hotel – Flamboyant, family-owned hotel close to Chelsea hotspots

Owned by the Italian proprietors of Puglia spa hotel Masseria San Domenico, this sister hotel just a stroll away from Sloane Square boasts lashings of Latin deco drama.

San Domenico House, a boutique hotel in Chelsea

Housed in a couple of refurbished redbrick townhouses that were once home to the (rather less extravagant) Sloane hotel, a discreet Victorian exterior hides San Domenico House’s 15 rooms, including nine suites.

The canopied king-size four-poster beds, richly swagged windows, and antique fixtures-and-fittings (including vintage Louis Vuitton luggage and solemn, turn-of-the-last-century portraits) breathe a heady whiff of Borgia-style decadence.

San Domenico House, a boutique hotel in Chelsea

San Domenico House‘s high ceilings, panelled walls and a liberal use of velvet add to the general sense of voluptuousness, whilst spacious bathrooms stocked with Molton Brown toiletries, along with 24 hour room service and a well-equipped fitness room, ensure comfort is catered for too.

San Domenico House, a boutique hotel in Chelsea

Rooms have balconies or terraces with panoramic city views, whilst breakfast, taken in a delightful damask and silk-cluttered drawing room, includes a full English fry up.

A few minutes saunter from world-class museums, chic King’s Road boutiques and restaurants, including Tom Aiken’s Tom’s Kitchen, San Domenico House makes an ideal base for that indulgent city break in London.

Double rooms from £255 per room per night, including breakfast. For further inspiration for London hotels, read our guide to the city’s best boutique hotels.

The Connaught Hotel, Mayfair – A Love Affair

I absolutely adore The Connaught – it’s one of my favourite places in London and I visit as often as I can, which is a true sign of an exceptional hotel.

Its main purpose is to attract tourists and business travellers, but if you can make locals return time and time again, you know you’re doing something right.

The Exterior of The Connaught Hotel in Mayfair

I’ve talked about The Connaught many times on this blog – I’m a huge fan of both hotel bars, The Coburg and The Connaught Bar – but despite numerous visits over the last few years, I had only ever experienced it from a food and beverage perspective, and mostly after dark.

Until a few weeks ago that is, when I was invited to spend the night.

Arriving on a Saturday afternoon in bright daylight reveals a different side to The Connaught – while the dark wood staircase still feels dramatic and imposing, the lobby is filled with light from the conservatory-style Espelette restaurant.

On check-in, I heard some of my favourite words: “we have a lovely suite for you, Mr Thomas”. And, well, what a suite!

The master bedroom of The Connaught Hotel in Mayfair

The ceremonious hand-carved double doors of The (penthouse) Apartment open on to a huge foyer that leads to the bedroom, beautifully designed in cream and lavender with a four-poster bed, fainting couch and a serene sense of space.

From your bedroom, follow the corridor to your dressing room, walk-in wardrobe and bathroom, or go for a wander in the other direction where walkways filled with objets d’arts and paintings guide you to a truly stunning sitting area, designed in blues and purples with a marble fire place.

The Apartment at The Connaught Hotel in Mayfair

Measuring over 3,000 square feet with two terraces overlooking Mayfair, The Apartment is surely one of the most desired hotel suites in London.

What I love most about The Apartment is that it’s not only somewhere to spend a night or a weekend, but somewhere you would want to call home. You would need a pretty hefty budget to do so, but it genuinely feels like home away from home. A gorgeous, stylish, utterly fabulous home, that is.

One of The Connaught’s biggest strengths is that it manages to blend tradition with modern touches so well – it can be formal yet cool; grand yet homely.

Helene Darroze at The Connaught, which holds two Michelin stars for its French haute cuisine and is one of my favourite Michelin starred restaurants in London, has recently launched a new menu concept.

With a philosophy that the ingredient is the star of any dish, Helene has created a menu highlighting her favourite ingredients and producers. Select 5, 7 or 9 items from the menu (Pumpkin, Lamb, Black Truffle, for example) and you will receive your own menu with one course created around each selected ingredient.

A recent lunch to showcase the new approach highlighted the chef’s focus on and trust in her suppliers, resulting in an experience that feels both luxurious and comforting.

The Aman Spa at The Connaught Hotel in Mayfair

The Connaught’s Aman Spa is the first of its kind outside of an Aman Hotel, and it brings an Asian aesthetic and style to the hotel. While smaller than many London hotel spas, its strength lies in its intimacy and serenity – I only saw one other guest while relaxing next to the gorgeous pool.

 The Coburg Bar at The Connaught Hotel in Mayfair

My love of the warmth of the Coburg Bar (above) and the glamour of The Connaught bar have been well documented, but delve further into the hotel and you may stumble upon the intimate Champagne Room. Not strictly a full bar, but a secret spot for a clandestine meeting with some seriously good Champagne.

The Connaught combines elegance, glamour, subtlety and a unique sense of cool to create a timeless masterpiece of a hotel.

The Intercontinental Westminster Hotel

The Intercontinental places you in the throng of Westminster and is perfectly situated for those looking to explore the tourist heartlands of Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Green Park and the London Eye.

The Intercontinental Westminster is aimed at the business traveller, but hospitality touches, a selection of good dining and drinking options and an excellent concierge team make it ideal for those looking for a more leisurely stay as well.

Its location amongst the country’s political hub is reflected in the artwork on the walls, which includes satirical work, Thatcher and Blair references, and sculptural works too.

These are elegantly housed in the main communal areas of the The Intercontinental Westminster, but rooms are art and politics-free, and instead are elegant, chic and very comfortable.

The Intercontinental Westminster hotel

The hotel offers its guests a good variety of rooms including suites, executive and classic rooms, none of which are huge, but are all well-equipped with spacious bathrooms, king-sized beds and many have views of Westminster and beyond.

Linens, towels, bathroom products and the in-room entertainment are all of a good quality and epitomise the hotel’s approach: no fussing and frippery here, but what you do get are the essentials delivered efficiently and with absolutely no cause for complaint.

The bathroom at The Intercontinental Westminster hotel

Visit the Intercontinental Westminster’s restaurant, Blue Boar Smokehouse, for classic American barbecue dishes, try cocktails at Emmeline, the cocktail bar named political activist Emmeline Pankhurst or take afternoon tea in the Lobby Lounge.

The Blue Boar Bar at The Intercontinental Westminster hotel

The Intercontinental Westminster makes a good choice for a short break in the capital, whether you’re visiting for work or for a base from which to explore this wonderful section of the city.

The Rosewood London Hotel – A Stunning New Luxury Hotel for London

The Rosewood London opened in Holborn in early October 2013 as Rosewood Hotels’ only European outpost. And what a hotel to (re)enter the market with – it is utterly gorgeous on every level.

Housed in an imposing building that has been the Pearl Assurance Company headquarters and, most recently, home to the Chancery Court Hotel, the renovations have resulted in a hotel that will compete with the very best of London’s luxury hotels.

The entrance on High Holborn with its wrought-iron gates leads to a small courtyard that feels like a rather special way to enter a hotel in central London.

Rosewood London Bedroom

The 262 rooms and 44 suites have been designed by Tony Chi and Associates to create a homely, stylish feel with textured woods, light grey fabrics and plenty of space.

In a few months, the Rosewood London will unveil its most startling suite, the Grand Manor House. With its own street entrance and its own postcode, the suite will feature six bedrooms, a dressing chamber, a library, a dining room and several sitting rooms spread over 6,318 square feet of living space!

Rosewood London bathroom

The public areas at Rosewood London are stunning – chic, stylish and elegant. A striking corridor connects the Mirror Room restaurant on one side of the courtyard with the hotel’s bar on the other side.

Rosewood London Corridor

The Mirror Room marks the return of Michelin starred chef Bjorn van der Horst to London in a stunning dining room with mirrors covering the walls and ceilings. The Mirror Room also offers two private dining rooms, one with its own demonstration kitchen. Our review of The Mirror Room will follow in a couple of weeks.

Designed by Martin Brudnizki (who also designed another one of my favourites, 34 in Mayfair), the bar feels just heavenly – an open fire with dramatic fire place, bookshelves and deep comfortable chairs all creating a warm and cosy atmosphere.

Rosewood London cocktail bar

Whether sitting in front of the fire, in the rocking chair or draped over the piano (with live performances on select evenings), the bar is somewhere you could return to night after night and has already jumped on to our list of London’s best cocktail bars.

In February, the Rosewood London will add to its restaurant offering with the Holborn Dining Room, also designed by Martin Brudnizki, and operated by Des McDonald. The Holborn Dining Room will offer an all day British brasserie menu, with its own terrace for alfresco dining, and an adjoining ‘Holborn Delicatessen’.

The Rosewood London is offering Introductory room rates until 31 March 2014 starting from £370 (rate includes VAT, a welcome amenity, Wi-Fi and English breakfast for two). For reservations, please email Bon Vivant’s travel team.

The Apartments at The Sloane Club

As an adopted East Londoner, what could be more fitting and immersive than experiencing a night in West London by staying at The Sloane Club?

Close to the same titled square, this private members’ club has recently opened 18 new apartments as part of its existing portfolio of luxury catered apartments.

The Apartments at The Sloane Club

While The Sloane Club itself is the kind of traditional venue you would expect, a lot of effort has been put into ensuring the new apartments retain the stately glamour of this part of London while offering a contemporary feel and all the mod cons. The overall effect certainly provides a contrast.

The Apartments at the Sloane Club

In a late 19th century Pont Street Dutch building, a mix of studios and one and two-bedroom apartments have been given quite a glitzy make over, with colourful damask curtains, glass and mirror fittings and huge beds with spacious living rooms, bathrooms  and – importantly – storage.

It’s not always going to be the case that visitors to London will want to stay in a hotel; some might prefer to have their own front door along with a certain independence while still having all of the services you’d expect of a luxury hotel in London.

They Apartments are also designed for people who are planning long stays in London or want the flexibility of space to host business meetings and dinners (you can even have one of their Chefs prepare dinner in your apartment) in a very exclusive neighbourhood.

The Apartment at the Sloane Club

To list everything these apartments offer would be rather dull, but you can certainly expect large TVs with the latest technology, including local information, room-service menu and the ability to stream content from your mobile or smartphone in order to view your emails and photos or listen to music.

On our visit we had the continental breakfast served in large hampers and filled with a combination of muesli, croissants, bread, hams, cheese and spreads. If anything, it was probably a bit too big and there was a lot of packaging.

The kitchen itself is fully equipped with a Nespresso machine and everything you would need to host a dinner party.

If you’re looking for a luxury hotel experience with the comforts of home in one of the most exclusive and well connected parts of London, then The Apartments at The Sloane Club could be just the place.

Hotel Xenia London – New Boutique Hotel in South Kensington

Heidi Fuller-love visits the latest boutique hotel to open in South Kensington, Hotel Xenia.

Seamlessly linking the modern chic of a glass-conservatory-style restaurant, with the ageless style of a Georgian building that wouldn’t look out of place in Moll Flanders, the façade of this brand new hotel along the Cromwell road neatly reflects the blend of olde-worlde charm and sleek mod cons within.

Hotel Xenia London

As the doors of Hotel Xenia swished open there was a heady whiff of beeswax and hot coffee, then the doors hissed shut and I was standing in the lobby with its dusty gold club chairs, cranberry curtains and elegant Tom Kirk crystal chandeliers dangling from the high ceiling.

After a welcoming iced orange juice cocktail in the lobby, I followed the porter upstairs and along an endless warren of corridors to my executive suite.

Xenia Hotel London

Spread out over five floors, Hotel Xenia’s 99 rooms are decked out in tones of beige, caramel and pistachio, with splashes of colour in scatter cushions and curtains.

Extra luxurious touches include deliciously soft, hand-woven cashmere blankets, Samsung tablets loaded with easy-to-navigate tips on local travel and attractions, and L’Occitane bathroom toiletries.

The Hotel xenia’s rooms come in four categories: classic rooms provide a cosy space that’s ideal for couples, whilst slightly more spacious executive rooms have king-size beds.

Perfect for families, or couples who need more space, deluxe rooms have a small, but comfortable lounge area and the extra perk of complimentary light refreshments in the lounge from 5pm to 7pm.

Honeymooners, or families who plan to stay for a  while, will want to choose the hotel’s sumptuous suite, which has a separate lounge area, private balcony with panoramic views over the city and vast Turkish-hammam style bathroom, complete with steam room.

That evening I had dinner in Evoluzione, Hotel Xenia’s glass conservatory-style restaurant, whose chef, Pasquale D’Ambrosio, is an acolyte of Cucina Evolution.

Evoluzione hotel Xenia

Seated on the top deck of the split-level dining room I admired the colourfully intricate Bohemian wallpaper, patterned with drinking goblets, that was designed by Cole & Sons.

Sipping a cooling spritzer, I leafed through the menu. Cucina Evolution is a pioneering Italian culinary movement whose idea is to serve dishes made from healthy food that is known to have anti ageing properties.

Translating as a lot of fresh ingredients packed with vitamins and minerals, it sounded a bit like eating at a health farm.

Luckily the Parmigiana di melenzane Aubergine millefeuille with buffalo mozzarella, caramelized tomatoes, sundried tomatoes and basil was ‘full of lycopene and antioxidants’ and the Ricordi d’ infanzia Pacchero with fresh fish, asparagus and cannellini beans ‘packed with Vitamin-B’ were so delicious that I forgot that they were good for me too.

Hotel Xenia is a member of Great Hotels of the World Premium Collection. Rooms start from £123.50. For more information or to book, please click here or call 020 7380 3658.

The London EDITION Hotel – Ian Schrager’s Return to London

The London EDITION, London’s hottest new luxury hotel, is now open on Berners Street in Fitzrovia.

The Lodon EDITION Hotel

The London EDITION is the latest from EDITION Hotels, hotelier Ian Schrager’s latest venture in partnership with Marriott International.

The London EDITION Hotel

The London EDITION is seen as a return to London for Ian Schrager who helped launch Sanderson and St Martin’s Lane Hotel on to the London hotel scene. Interestingly, The London EDITION is located on the same street as Sanderson.

The hotel is said to be inspired by ‘the grand traditions of Great Britain: the traditional, aristocratic English country manor and the London private gentleman’s club with a modern, edgy, urban feel’.

The London EDITION Hotel

The hotel features 173 rooms and suites, two bars, a restaurant, a dance club and a 24-hour fitness facility. The restaurant, Berner’s Tavern is the latest addition to Jason Atherton’s ever-expanding restaurant empire (get down to his recent Soho restaurant, Social Eating House if you haven’t been yet).

Berners tavern

Berners Tavern’s dining room is absolutely stunning – one of the most beautiful rooms in London in my opinion. Images are by Nicolas Koenig.

The Hoxton Hotel – A Cool, Hip Boutique Hotel in Shoreditch

Slap bang in the centre of Shoreditch, the Hoxton Hotel is a fabulous offering for a quick, no frills city break. The hotel rooms are stylish, intentionally fuss-free and functional. The ethos is simple: the rooms are a base from which to work and play in this exciting part of the city.

What sets the Hoxton hotel apart from competitors is the dedication to style and its modern décor – our bedroom had a Shoreditch-inspired bicycle painted on the wall.

The Hoxton Hotel

Our bedroom had a comfortable, if a little on the small sized, bed, lovely linens, fluffy towels and zingy toiletries in the (rather small) bathroom. Despite being in the city-centre the room was perfectly insulated and there was no noise from the bustling streets below.

In the morning a small brown paper bag filled with breakfast treats was left outside the door, and was a sweet and clever touch, particularly for business travellers.

The Hoxton Hotel

The Hoxton Grill, the hotel’s restaurant, is so lovely that I often visit for Sunday brunch. It bears no similarities with the usual hotel restaurants you might find at this price point.

The menu is fun, and the big brasserie-style restaurant is often filled with parties totally independent of hotel guests making for a good mix. The hotel lobby also offers a thriving bar scene, which is packed at weekends.

The Hoxton Hotel

The hotel is business orientated, but not to the detriment of leisure travellers. The Hoxton Hotel offers a great selection of conference and meeting facilities and seems to strike a good balance between work and play with its clientèle.

The Hoxton Hotel is one of London’s best boutique hotels: It’s straightforward, affordable and offers a bit of grown-up fun at a less serious price-point.

If you would like Bon Vivant’s London concierge team to plan your next trip to London, please contact us now.

The Hoxton Hotel has just launched ‘The Apartment’ in collaboration with the Soho House Group – a collection of six individually designed meeting rooms set around an open plan kitchen to offer a fun meeting space rather than your typical office – photo below.

The Best Luxury Hotels in London

London is one of the greatest cities in the world, with fantastic luxury hotels to match its reputation – read our guide to the best luxury hotels in London.

The Connaught, Mayfair

The Connaught, sitting neatly on the corner of Mount Street in Mayfair, combines its splendour with impeccable service and traditional English grandeur. The style of the hotel is a restrained glamour and elegance with fantastic restaurant and bar offerings.

the best luxury hotels in London

Hélène Darroze at The Connaught has 2 Michelin stars, offering fine French haute cuisine, while its two bars, the glamorous Connaught Bar situated towards the back of the hotel with its art deco flare and the warm, homely Coburg Bar with its heavy fabrics and open fire, are both excellent places to enjoy a martini in London and features in our choice of the best bars in London.

Claridge’s, Mayfair

Claridge’s is perhaps best known for its popularity amongst royalty, dignitaries and the glitterati. It is also a shining example of the grace of art deco with its beautifully crafted interior and fin de siècle elegance.

The best luxury hotels in London

Whether you are taking afternoon tea in The Foyer, dining in Gordon Ramsay at Claridge’s or sipping on champagne in Claridge’s Bar, you will marvel at the flawless style and service.

The Corinthia Hotel, near Embankment

The Corinthia hotel is the ultimate destination for those looking for luxury, style and relaxation. You will find it located just off from Trafalgar Square and even at first glimpse it radiates glamour.

the best luxury hotels in London

As you enter the hotel you will become aware of the striking chandelier crafted out of Baccarat crystal dangling above you, which sets the tone for one of the best luxury hotels in London.

The rooms are large and stylish, there are two very good restaurants, a lovely bar, The Bassoon Bar, where the bar stretches out from a piano, and possibly the best spa in London.

The ESPA, cascading three floors beneath the hotel, is as luxurious as you could imagine – it is encased in black Italian marble and offers an equally impressive range of treatments. The Corinthia is our pick for one of the best luxury hotels in London.

The Rosewood London, Holborn

The Rosewood London is the latest luxury hotel to open in London (October 2013) at the former site of the Chancery Court Hotel in Holborn. The hotel is truly stunning – stylish, elegant and spacious rooms, gorgeous public areas and a warm, welcoming and chic cocktail bar.

Rosewood London Bedroom

The Rosewood London’s restaurant, the Mirror Room, is overseen by Michelin starred chef Bjorn van der Horst, and a second restaurant, The Holborn Dining Room, will open in early 2014.

The Langham, Fitzrovia

The Langham is conveniently placed just off the fanfare of Oxford Street, where the style of the hotel is grand with stylish flourishes throughout.

the best luxury hotels in London

The dining options are also notable, with Roux at the Landau and the beautiful yet creative afternoon tea in the Palm Court. There is also Artesian pictured above, a cocktail bar serving a fabulous selection of drinks.

The Lanesborough, Hyde Park Corner

This five star hotel on the edge of Hyde Park is a brilliant example of traditional elegance. Decorated throughout in a refined style that is reminiscent of a long forgotten era, the rooms are decorated with drapes, delicate flourishes and muted colours.

The restaurant, Apsley’s, is a stunning Venetian-style dining room complete with glass roof and plush upholstery, serving up light Italian food worthy of its Michelin star.

The Dorchester, Mayfair

The Dorchester exudes traditional glamour and a quintessential British elegance, and it is easy to see why it is so popular. The style is unmistakably thirties’ glamour with a modern twist.

luxury hotels London

The bedrooms delight with their mixture of delicate floral touches and traditional British grace. The Dorchester has three top quality restaurants including China Tang, The Grill at the Dorchester, and the 3 Michelin Starred Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester.

Four Seasons Park Lane

The Four Seasons Park Lane re-opened in 2011 after a full transformation. The rooftop spa has spectacular views of London, and the restaurant, Amaranto, offers Italian-inspired food with international flavours and a dark, sexy bar area.

The St Pancras Renaissance Hotel

The St Pancras Renaissance Hotel at St Pancras International Station is an architectural marvel, standing ceremoniously with a sweeping driveway set back from Euston Road in London’s King’s cross area.

best luxury hotels London

The London hotel features 245 guest rooms split between two buildings – 207 rooms are located in a new annexe and 38 beautifully restored suites are found in the original building. The St Pancras Renaissance Hotel oozes history from every corner, which is its biggest asset.

The Bulgari Hotel, Knightsbridge

The newly opened Bulgari Hotel in the middle of Knightsbridge has a lavish and sumptuous feel with a decadent blend of marble and silver throughout. The Bulgari has one of London’s best luxury cinemas, seating forty-seven in pure luxury.

The Bulgari Spa is also worth a visit, most notably the beautiful swimming pool and eleven treatment rooms.

Brown’s Hotel, Mayfair

Brown’s Hotel is a traditional British Hotel in the heart of Mayfair, but holds a modern, stylish bar on the ground floor. The Donovan Bar is cool, stylish, intimate and a haven for fashionistas.

The walls are adorned with Terence Donovan’s iconic black and white prints, which adds a contemporary twist to the history of the surroundings. Brown’s Hotel also offers contemporary British dining in the form of Hix Mayfair from Mark Hix.

Mandarin Oriental London, Knightsbridge

The Mandarin Oriental has a prime address in Knightsbridge with views over Hyde Park and with Harrods and Harvey Nichols moments away. The hotel features restaurants from two superstar chefs, with Bar Boulud from the US’s Daniel Boulud and our own Heston Blumenthal.

Avoid the waitlists for his Fat Duck restaurant in Bray and try his special cooking techniques in the heart of London.

The Savoy, Covent Garden

The Savoy is an institution on London’s hotel scene and caused quite a scene when it re-emerged a couple of years ago with a new look. The American Bar is a huge draw for visitors, but walk to the rear of the hotel where you’ll fine the grand Beaufort Bar, which has live singers on certain nights.

Cafe Royal, Piccadilly

Café Royal opened its doors on 3rd December 2012, but its official full opening occurs in the summer of 2013, the culmination of a four-year transformation of a former London grand dame.

The stunning hotel retains the heritage of the original building with its imposing staircase and opulent design features.

There are currently 159 rooms and suites (including six historic suites), a restaurant under the direction of Andrew Turner, 2 bars (including the spectacular Grill Room), soon to be followed by a private members’ club (with its own more formal restaurant) and a holistic well-being centre.
