London has no shortage of hotels – and particularly luxury hotels, with old-world charm and new-world service. Traditionally, the capital’s luxury hotels were clustered in the upmarket enclaves of Kensington, Knightsbridge and Chelsea, with ample high-end shopping opportunities on the doorstep. As the notion of luxury evolves, that’s all changing with a new breed of design-centric luxury hotels popping up in the capital’s trendiest neighbourhoods. Wherever you want to lay your head, one thing’s for sure: these hotels have impeccable service, out-of-this-world food and the comfiest bedrooms in all the capital.
Here’s our pick of London’s best luxury hotels.
