booked this "last minute" and was delighted to find a smart hotel with all the modern facilities but which seemed to be run on old fashioned principles of service and courtesy. Absolutely lovely room and the public rooms were very nicely decorated and very comfortable. The private garden will be gorgeous in spring and summer (not at all bad in... More

If you are seeking an authentically British, private luxury hotel in the Chelsea area this is an absolute treat. This property dates from the Edwardian period and was previously an exclusive gentleman's club. It is around the corner from Peter Jones Department Store and Sloane Square but off the main traffic streets and very quiet. When you arrive at the... More

My second visit both times without my husband. I feel very comfortable and safe here in a great location. My room was spacious (Garrick) and comfortable. I didn't mind the lack of tea/coffee making facilities and appreciated the chance of tea or champagne in the drawing room. The decoration for Christmas was lovely and the hotel has a nice atmosphere.... More

We spent just one treat night here and felt totally spoilt. We were greeted with a fire burning in our charming room and tea and mince pies at 4pm. Unfortunately we missed the champagne at 6pm as we were on our way to the West End (to see Sunny Afternoon - the Kinks musical which was fantastic!) but we did... More

Visited with my daughter for a pre-christmas break and couldn't have wished for more. It was a little bit of heaven in the midst of Xmas madness. Lovely room, charming staff and a great breakfast on Sunday morning - waiter was slightly stressed by declaring he was having a disaster with a lack of teaspoons - but in the grand... More

From the first moment to the last farewell, there were only special moments. In a nutshell, the hotel is a residential based property, renovated cleverly in to a first class hotel property, with service that is impeccable and professional but also warm and friendly. We never found anything to complain about. Suffering from the usual foggy lag from a long... More

My husband and I visited London on our recent honeymoon and had an absolutely amazing stay at The Draycott in London! Everything from the room to the staff, to the breakfast and afternoon tea was perfect! We felt so welcome there that it was sad to leave and we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else if we ever make it... More

A small charming townhouse, with rooms named after more or less famous authors instead of numbers. Really a hotel with charm and history, and very pleasant staff. To get in you have to ring the bell as entering a private home, and fro there you feel like home. No restaurant or bar, but free afternoon tea, champagne and good night... More

Charming old townhouse with great service. If you are a Harrods and high end stores fan you are in the right area. However far from Selfridge's, Oxford and the theatres area. Our main negative is for the ridiculous small elevator, steps up and down to get to some higher floor rooms, bathroom with no electrical outlet. However, we would still... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
