The Best Hotels In London

Our capital city is a great place. With lots to see and do London is such a vibrant city. But how do you choose where to stay in London? This post is my take on the best hotels in London.

Best Modern Luxury Hotel 

The Corinthia

Beautiful modern design in a grand Victorian building this stylish hotel ticks all the right boxes. Fantastic Spa - check, cool cocktail bar - check, outstanding service - well of course! Whether you can afford to stay in a sumptuous suite or a superior room I don't think the Corinthia will disappoint. Voted by Trip Advisor as one of its Travellers Choice hotels 2013, it is the place to see film stars and those mere mortals that like the best things in life - like me! I have to admit I won afternoon tea at The Corinthia and it was the most amazing experience.

Best Traditional Luxury Hotel

The Ritz

The Ritz is the place for old school glamour. Known for its faultless service and its scrumptious afternoon tea, this British institution has moved with the times whilst still maintaining the traditional standards for which it is known. With some of the best customer service in the capital, your every need is met with a smile, whether you are an Arab sheik or a a normal person, everyone is treated with the same courtesy.

Best Hotel in The Heart Of The Action

The Dean Street Townhouse

Perfectly situated in the heart of Soho, The Dean Street Townhouse is that something special for a keenly priced London hotel. Those that have read my previous review may realise how much I loved this place. Everything was in the detail, and I mean everything. You could literally turn up without anything and find all the toiletries you may need there, razor, shaving gel, deodorant  lip balm, I mean lip balm! The cookies are to die for. I won't go into any more detail just read my review here. Oh and it has a very lively bar full of media types.

Best Hotel For Shopaholics

Saint George's London

Saint George's London is a well situated hotel. Placed on the corner of Langham Street and fashionable Regent Street - it is only a short walk from Oxford Circus tube station. A perfect hotel for shopaholics, Oxford Street is close by and all those fabulous shops are on your doorstep. Rooms are from £120 which is a steel for London, especially when you get well stocked mini bars, flat screen TVS and free wi-fi. The Height's restaurant on the 15th floor has fabulous views of London too. The hotel is undergoing refurbishment at the moment and is definitely a hotel to check out if you want to be close to great shopping. At the moment if you quote TEN at checkout you will get 10% off.

Best Family Friendly Hotel

The Athenaeum

This 5 star family-run hotel near Hyde Park is well-known for its family friendliness. Their children's menu is created by children for children. Child-sized bathrobes and slippers, age appropriate books, toys and games are available including Wii, Xbox and more. At nighttime cookies and milk automatically arrive. They even have nannies and a kid's concierge. Rooms are well appointed as you would expect for a luxury establishment.

Best Foodie Hotel

The Mandarin Oriential

Timeless English elegance and immaculate style make this one of London's most distinguished hotels. Why do I rate it for the food? One word Heston. Heston Blumenthal's Dinner restaurant has been named number 9 in the top 50 restaurants in the world in 2012 and has one Michelin star. Signature dishes such as 'meat fruit' make this a memorable dining experience and a menu that has achieved worldwide recognition from chefs, critics and customers alike.

This is a taster of my opinions on the best London hotels. I look forward to reviewing them in detail in the near future.

  1. Love your choices in hotels. I've stayed at the Ritz before and ate there too - it was AMAZING and LUXURIOUS - want to go back. I'd love to try The Corinthia Hotel. The Bloomsbury Park Hotel is gorgeous too near the British Museum.

  2. Love nothing better than spoiling myself to a nice hotel but rarely stay in London as my cousins just live 20 minutes away so we often stay with them but I've stay at The Mayfair before in their penthouse suite which was mind blowing that was only because my cousin is the manager there as I couldn't afford the £8,000 a night!
