We stayed at our favourite hotel, The Rembrandt which is opposite the Victoria and Albert Museum. This is the description on the hotel website:
‘The Rembrandt is a spectacular Edwardian building with timeless ornate architecture. Situated in the heart of Knightsbridge it has a great location for both leisure and business travellers. Perfectly positioned to explore the local area, The Rembrandt is only a 5-minute walk from South Kensington station, which has great access to all the large mainline stations. With the V & A Museum right opposite, the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum only a 5-minute walk away, it is perfect for culture. World famous Harrods and Harvey Nichols are only 10 minutes away for those who want to do a bit of designer shopping’.
That really does sum this hotel up. It is a beautiful hotel that is perfectly positioned in a museum and shopping area. It also has great staff, lovely rooms and a great bar that does really good cocktails and the breakfast is very good. I can especially recommend the mushrooms. I am not sure precisely how they are cooked but they are fabulous. It also has a health club with swimming pool and jacuzzi for just £6.50 extra each per visit. There is a beauty salon in the club so you can indulge yourself with a treatment. It really is the perfect relaxing bolt hole right in the heart of one of the best areas of London. We go up to London 2-3 times a year and always try to stay there if we can and have been very disappointed when it has been unavailable and we have had to stay somewhere else.
