Planning a trip is always difficult, even more so if you’re the first person to do it. Have no fear though, because in this blog post I’ve decided to show you which of London’s amazing hotels you should definitely visit before it’s too late! Travelling seems to be a booming business, which makes sense since you never know who you’ll meet at these amazing hotels around the world. We have chosen five hotels across London and broken them down in this article to give new information on popular places to visit in the city.
The Savoy Hotel
The Savoy Hotel is the perfect London escape even if you’re not a member. Spanning three decades and with a rich history, this Victorian palace has an elegant grandeur that suits creating magical moments. The last of London’s grand hotels, it’s still as decadent today – think traditional butlers and library nests – as it once was.
Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London
The Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park is one of London’s most luxurious hotels, occupying a full floor of the luxurious Grosvenor House Hotel. The location for this beautiful hotel is just in front of Hyde Park and a short walk from iconic Buckingham Palace. It features on three popular lists of best hotels in London: “The World’s Best Hotels,” “The World’s Most Beautiful Hotels,” and “The World’s Best Restaurants.”
Shangri-La The Shard, London
This is one of the most amazing hotels London has to offer. If you are into art and culture, this will be a great destination in your time on London. The top floor, where the hotel garden extends all the way out to The Shard is considered one of the most spectacular city vistas of the whole world. Shangri-La The Shard offers 3 restaurants, a spa, barber shop, and pool. Outside is the 150 metre observation platform at 35 floors high, which you can see the entire London area. The iron staircase leads to this platform, but be warned: if you decide to leap when it gets too boring on the ground floor, there’s no turning back.
The Beaumont is a hotel designed for both couples and business executives. It has many amenities such as a coffee shop, members lounge, a health spa and Gym club, three restaurants including Brella Seafood Restaurant and the Cosmopolitan Room, complimentary internet access, personal assistants and concierge services at every turn. There is even a underground car park about 100 metres away from The Beaumont.
The Ritz London
The Ritz is an iconic, elegant hotel situated in the heart of London. Its superb location has afforded it a long history and the luxury hotels in the area, with this luxury mixes well with a perfect blend of innovative and contemporary design. Standing in front of The Ritz London is a city embedded with history. It’s home to lavish balls throughout the centuries, hosts world famous events such as the Royal Garden Parties and war correspondents like Noel Coward and Arthur Asquith used it as a hub to cover their stories.
London has many places for sightseeing and indulging, but sometimes it can be difficult to find hotels that are short on the wallet. The disadvantage of staying in a hotel is not having as much freedom as you have when traveling from Airbnb.
