This has to be the quintessential boutique hotel - stylish and chic without pretension. The room was spacious and comfortable, the service warm and friendly and decor exquisite. A short stroll from South Kensington tube stop and close to the museums and high street shopping. The tea salon or drawing room is gorgeous and the library is stocked with the most interesting reads, all selected by a local book seller. The breakfast in the basement eatery was terrific, original and simple. The decor and objets d'art flavor the decor and make this a unique experience. Sure, its not at the cheap end of the range of accommodation in London but worth it. Also surprisingly quiet given the buzz in the streets around the hotel.
