Taking a little me time in one of the prettiest areas in London is always a good idea and Belgravia has some of the best hotels in London – with options to suit every mood and occasion. Hotel location is everything when you’re planning a little time out and Belgravia is the place to get away from it all whilst staying in the heart of the city.
There is every type of hotel you can think of – from hideaway boutique properties to lavish fashionista hang outs – and everything in between, so choosing a hotel is a cinch. You’ll be super close to a number of irresistible attractions or if you’d rather stay close to home, the restaurants and bars are well worth it – more than places to see and be seen, these are places to be.
Lime Tree Hotel on Ebury Street is a charming boutique townhouse in the heart of Belgravia. A wonderful haven from a busy schedule, the hotel combines the elegance and warmth of a Georgian family home with up-to-the minute styling and second to none service. Take a wander in the walled garden – and you won’t even feel like you’re in London or if you feel like stepping out, you can do so, safe in the knowledge that you’re in walking distance of a variety of shopping, dining and other attractions. The Butter is a wonderful lounge and café – the perfect place to indulge in a lazy rustic- breakfast when time is on your side.
If you’re looking for 5 star luxury, then head to The Berkeley Hotel in Wilton Place, one of the leading 5 star hotels in London and lauded for being breathtakingly stylish, with some of the most spacious rooms – many with private garden terraces and hideaway balconies. Known for being fashionably first when it comes to new experiences, fashionistas head to Prêt-à-Portea, the catwalk inspired afternoon tea – where ready to wear becomes ready to eat with a range of designer inspired treats. Marcus Wareing offers two Michelin-starred dining at his eponymous restaurant, Marcus and it would be crazy not to indulge in a cocktail or two at the beautiful Blue Bar.
Or there’s The Hari, a luxury five-star hotel where service is anything but intrusive and you really feel at home, the moment you arrive. The luxury rooms and suites have been designed with comfort and understated elegance in mind and The Hari bar is irresistible – for light lunches or that glorious end of day cocktail.
For the last word in luxury, try The Lanesborough, on Hyde Park Corner. Round-the-clock dedicated butler service in each room and suite and celebrated as much for its drinking and dining options as it is for being a hotel, it is also home to The Lanesborough Grill restaurant, an award winning afternoon tea service, seductive Library bar and one of London’s best cigar and Cognac lounges.
