Great service, friendly staff. Really good location - 5 mins walk from Sloane Square tube and some lovely restaurants. The Single room I stayed in was very small, but well furnished. I loved the books in the room - a nice touch. I didn't get the chance to sample the tea and biscuits or the hot chocolate - but I... More

I stayed at the Draycott Hotel with a friend on a business/friend meet up trip. The hotel is in a quiet part of Chelsea, yet immediately behind Peter Jones and set close to many great shopping areas. It is a very discrete hotel with no doormen and a very relaxed feel. Little touches like afternoon tea & biscuits at 4,... More

This beautiful hotel is perfectly situated in a quite neighbourhood yet just steps away from the Underground and all that London has to offer. Each room is uniquely furnished with themed antique decor. It feels more like staying in a home rather than a hotel. Although some aspects of the hotel are looking worn it is charming and the staff... More

We have stayed at the genteel Draycott Hotel many times. Lovely period rooms, all contain sitting areas, many have fireplaces. Each room is different from the next; all named after famous writers and artists. This is not for lovers of steel and glass but for those who appreciate the refined decor and accoutrements of earlier times. Champagne served nightly in... More

Be ready for a travel back in time to England of XIX century. The House carefully decorated down the last detail. Rooms have the special charm of the past. Since the first step, you can feel a warm and cozy sensation, areas with a wonderful interior design, and cute little details from the staff. Thank you very much to Draycott... More

We have visited this area of London for 10 years now as our daughters live nearby. We have tried all the Hotels some very good and some not so. The Draycott is by far the best and can throughly recommend it.

We have stayed at this hotel during the last 15 years. It continues to have a very high standard of service with friendly helpful staff.

Exactly what I was looking for! Excellent location but quiet. Traditional English service and accommodations! I would highly recommend this hotel if you don't want the typical "chain" experience. Outstanding !

My wife found this hotel on a blog she follows. I was skeptical. It couldn't be as good as described. It wasn't. It was better! A few hundred steps from the Slaone Square tube station, the grand old building looks more like embassy row than a hotel location. Took the driver a minute to find it, but once we arrived... 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.
