Important Bits

  • Type

    Boutique luxury hotel.

  • Vibe

    Cozy, sexy with a pop of kitsch.

  • Location

    One of the best qualities of the hotel (besides the boutique cozy feeling) is the location. It's across the street from the Knightsbridge tube station. There's a taxi stand and bus stop literary in front of the hotel. It's walking distance to the best shopping is two blocks down. It's a also very close to Hyde Park if you like a morning run. I also loved that it didn't look like a hotel - the taxi driver drove past it twice.
