This is like stepping back 50 years into the real London. The service is excellent, the rooms are huge and the décor is ultra traditional. We had a great stay and it would have been perfect if not for the crazy expensive bill we received for breakfast. Coffee and cereal for me, and yogurt and coffee for my better half... More

Located just off Sloane Square which is very convenient, very quiet. Nice living room and garden. Single room is small, very small and rather stuffy and A/C makes a notice. Tried to open the window but it fell down.... Nice staff that couldn't help that the lift was broken for my whole stay. Good exercise climbing three stairs but it... More

The hotel's in a great location, just a short walk away from Sloane Square and the underground station. Also, the hotel is located a convenient 5 - 10 minute walk from the Royal Hospital for the Chelsea Flower Show. Unfortunately, the only lift in the hotel was not working when I was there, but I was lucky enough to be... More

Based ourselves at this hotel during the Chelsea Flower show for three nights., but it is a superb wonderful location for any London trip. The staff were attentive and friendly. The prefect ambience and such a peaceful breakfast in the intimate breakfast room. We used room service several times which was excellent, although it would have been ideal if they... More

There are more luxurious properties in London. And there are hotels with more amenities. But you won't find a hotel in London that overall is as pleasant and comfortable as the Draycott. We've been staying here for over 25 years through the property's numerous iterations and have never been disappointed. On our most recent visit, the first in almost a... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Draycott, and what can i say? The reviews are true! I was lucky enough to be put up by work and had a choice of a few hotels in the area. I chose the Draycott mainly due to the glowing reviews on here, but also as didn't want to be too... More

I fell in love with this hotel as soon as I was taken up to our room Sheridan. Highlights: Gas fire in the room. Super luxury towels. Location of hotel. Friendliness of staff. Suggested improvements: Provision of body lotion. Inform customers before arrival that they need passport for check-in if they're not British. Definitely recommend this hotel and would book... More

The hotel was warm, comfortable, charming, elegant, and an all around delight to stay in. We especially loved the afternoon tea. Would highly recommend it to anyone traveling for business or pleasure.

This is a very special hotel. It is meant for those that prefer the small boutique hotel feeling. For those that love the personal interaction with the staff of which they remembered your preference. The last time I had visited London was 16 years ago. My wife of four years had visited it 18 years ago. We chose this hotel... More

We spent our Valentine's night at the Draycott hotel. This hotel has a central location in London. The famous Sloane Street and Knightsbridge is within walking distance.Our superior double room was very attractive because it was beautifully decorated with traditional British decorations,e.g. paintings, furniture, photos and a very traditional and efficient heating stove! Everything reminds me my godfather's old flat... 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.
