We just returned from a week stay at The Sloane Square Hotel, July 4-10, located on the square in the posh Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, bordering Belgravia. You can not find a better location. Owned by the Draycott partnership and recently refurbished, the hotel has a boutique feel. It is clean floor to ceiling, and the beds were luxuriously comfortable with loads of pillows. The rooms vary in size depending on category and location, although tend to be small. Our double room had a king size bed of 2 attached twins, a large desk with electric kettle for tea and coffee, mini-bar, a small closet with safe, flat-screen TV with complimentary DVDs, basic tiled bathroom with tub/shower, broadband internet connection, and room for 2 large suitcases. Our second room, a twin double, was much larger with a nicer bath. Amenities remained the same, except for a larger TV. The one major drawback is there was no drawer space in the rooms, and since closets are small, you live out of your suitcase.
Hotel offers business services with a conference room, lounge with free broadband access and printer. Access to these areas is permitted for hotel quests, if not booked for corporate use. If occupied, the front desk will print your etickets or vouchers when needed.
The entire staff was very friendly & accommodating from check-in to check-out. Our experience with reservations, front desk, and housekeeping were all positive. Bellman Andre could not do enough!
The attached Chelsea Brasserie, with room service menu, is open for all meals and has a small outdoor area facing the square. The food is wonderful and reasonable, and you can charge to your room. Other excellent dining options are close by.
The residential areas are lovely, very safe for walking through with restaurants and pubs scattered along the side streets. The Tube station across street is attended, with the Circle & Districtlines making for easy transportation to most major attractions with usually no more than a single connection needed (if any). Taxi rank and bus stops also onsite.
Knightsbridge with Harrods and Harvey Nichols are just a short walk. Peter Jones department store, Sloane St, and King’s Rd intersect at the square, making for convenient shopping from basic needs to designer fashions.
This hotel is perfect for a short trip if you don’t rely on frills such as spas and in-house gyms. Offering good value for money and location, we plan to return, The Sloane is an undiscovered gem!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Sloane Square was designed in 1771 and named after Sir Hans Sloane (1660 – 1753). The property has been a 4 star hotel since 1900. Chelsea has always been at the heart of fashionable London and became world famous during the 1960s as the centre of swinging London. In fact the Beatles frequently stayed in the hotel which was then called The Royal Court. In 2005/6 the hotel was completely renovated and reopened as Sloane Square Hotel. We are very proud to be an independent, privately owned hotel which reflects the individual character of the property and personal guest service. ... more less
