Luxury Hotels For London Weekend Breaks

An American who recently spent time in London said: ‘The city is every bit as raw, exciting, dizzy, happening, relaxing and entertaining as New York but with one exception: the site of London has been occupied since the ancient world. That has given this cosmopolitan city plenty of time to develop some historical places you simply must see.’ The ‘swinging’ London of the 1960s is now a melting pot of different cultures, while its skyline has slowly transformed from church spires and Victorian back-to-back houses to skyscrapers reminiscent of New York. London is one of the best places on earth to visit for a weekend, a week or a month. There is so much to see and do, and the key to a great London experience is to stay right in the heart of the action. Ideally you want everything to be just a stone’s throw from your door. Here are a few top suggestions for luxury hotels in London which are perfectly located to enhance your visit to the capital, whatever you want to do.

Durley House, Knightsbridge

This chic boutique London hotel is the perfect pick for Shopaholics. Smack-bang in the middle of swank Knightsbridge, it is just steps from Sloane Square, the mecca for all fashionistas. Harvey Nich’s and Harrod’s are just along the road, so you don’t have to carry those bags too far.

Covent Garden Hotel, Soho

Interior designer types will adore any of Kit Kemp’s stylish makeovers. Covent Garden Hotel is just one of her superb and hip creations in London. The rooms all have the trademarks of this designer legend; English country fabrics and four-poster beds enhance the richly decorated rooms. Antiques mix with contemporary artwork and look wonderful whilst breaking all the rules. Request one of the rooms with oversized windows and views over the rooftops – a great sight to wake up to.

One Aldwych, Covent Garden

Perfectly located in London for West End theatres, entertainment and nightlife, this Condé Nast Gold List star is within easy staggering distance of all the major theatres, the Royal Opera House and the National Gallery. One of the most exciting contemporary luxury hotels in London, One Aldwych is more than just a bed for the night.

Dukes, Westminster

This fine classic boutique hotel makes you a close neighbour of HRH at Buckingham Palace, which is just around the corner. Whitehall, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and the London Eye are all nearby making this a great choice for sightseeing guests. This ‘Leading Small Hotels of the World’ member is a thoroughly British institution from the clubby bar to the garden conservatory.

Threadneedles Hotel, City

Appropriately located in a former bank building, Threadneedles Hotel is right on the edge of the City, mixing business beautifully with pleasure. This unique luxury hotel is considered by Condé Nast to be one of the top 50 luxury hotels in the world, with its the refined atmosphere and fabulous stained glass dome in the former banking hall. The Penthouse has stunning views of the City and St Paul’s Cathedral from the fifty-foot long terrace.
