I've stayed at the most of the very top hotels in London including the Berkeley (a lovely hotel); The Savoy (great fun); The Ritz (my least favourite supposedly top hotel with afternoon tea... More

Popped in for a cocktail on the way back to Green Park, a very warm welcome as we were shown through to the bar in the beautifully refurbished Piano Bar. The lounge area, fire place roaring, with the piano keys being delicately tickled in the corner was a delightful oasis. Our waitress was charming and available to suggest concoctions that... More

Recently refurbished by Oetker last year this hotel is in a great location with service and facilities to match. The concierge are the best I can recall in London and the hotel strikes an excellent blend of modernity and classic style. The hotel feels old and grand, but the mod cons make life easy and efficient for guests. Sadly we... More

Met friends at The Lanesborough last weekend for celebratory champagne tea. It was 40 years since we had first met there as student nurses, when it was still St Georges Hospital. Without doubt, the venue is opulent. We were warmly welcomed, immediately seated and offered bottled water (which was already on the table) whilst we decided what tea to have.... More

Staying in Belgravia

Neighborhood Profile
Belgravia
Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic residences in London, sophisticated and upscale Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw away to the north, and some of Europe’s best shopping is nearby as well.
