The Best Places to Stay in London

To blow the budget!

  • Claridges is a London institution, one of the best hotels and arguably also one of the most beautiful. The hotel's recent refurbishment was sympathetic to the beauty of the original and the restaurant and the top floor spa have become just as popular as afternoon tea in the foyer.
  • Situated right on Hyde Park, The Mandarin Oriental has opulent traditional bedrooms, a butler on every floor, a good restaurant, excellent spa facilities and a lavishly stocked cocktail bar. It's also big and grand and in an excellent location for serious shoppers.
  • The Dorchester is another London institution, this is the kind of place to come if you want the royal treatment. Or, for something just as glamorous, but a bit more glossy, less fussy, try The Dorchester's sister hotel, 45 Park Lane, which has an Art Deco flavour and Wolfgang Puck's highly recommended CUT restaurant.

For under £300 per night

  • Brimming full of character, Hazlitts has been converted from three Georgian townhouses in the heart of Soho. Close to nightlife, top restaurants and most of the major sights, it's the ideal base for a city break with real style.
  • No 11 Cadogan Gardens is a hidden gem in a fabulous spot, just behind Sloane Square. The interiors are tasteful, if eclectic - Murano chandeliers, wood panelling and thick sumptuous fabrics. Small intimate public spaces - a library and drawing room - give the place a clubby feel, but not in a stuffy way. Perfect for a spot of retail therapy at the big names down the road!
  • A good hotel for business clients and also for the ordinary tourists, the London Bridge Hotel is perfect for those who want a base on the South Bank. A stylish and welcoming place to rest your head with great food and gym facilities.
  • The Rockwell is a great value townhouse hotel, perfect for exploring the Museums in South Ken.
