Twenty Nevern Square - Earls Court, SW5

Gym and fitness facilities are available by arrangement. And this secure hotel is located close to Earl's Court and the magnificent Olympia Exhibition Centre, with only a ten minute walk to London's finest shops, excellent restaurants, all of the splendid theatres and top attractions such as the Victoria and Albert and the Science Museums.

The Milestone Hotel and Apartments - Kensington

While the impressive Prince Albert Suite, with a wonderful open fireplace, elaborately carved ceilings and four poster bed may set the standard at this hotel, all the other rooms more than match up! Each room is in fact a wonderful tribute to the taste and intuition of the talented designers for the Red Carnation Group, who are rapidly becoming one of the best hotel groups I know of. Indeed, this hotel won the hotel of the year award 2007 from Travel and Leisure (Conde Nast publishers). The discreet but attentive service, the thoughtful extras, and the style and charm of the rooms add up to an experience which is both elegant and luxurious. Each of the 45 rooms (there are also twelve suites and six long stay apartments with access to hotel facilities) is elegantly furnished with fine fabrics, antiques, fresh flowers, and rare works of art, yet they are all strikingly different: some are decorated more richly, and have a more intimate, homely feel; others look out over the stunning views of Kensington Palace and Gardens. The rooms are serviced twice a day, and the hotel's attention to detail is clear - the maid is not there just to clean and tidy, but to provide those items which will make your visit a special one: home-made cookies, bonbons, chilled mineral water, fruits in season, a weather forecast, your complimentary newspapers, tasty canapés, candles in the bathroom, and so forth. And while these things may be distracting enough to make your stay a memorable one, there's still plenty of up-to-the-minute technology to keep you in touch, including a high-speed wireless internet connection, movies on demand, interactive TV, and CD jukebox.
The Milestone Apartments combine the luxury of the hotel with privacy and independence. The location is beautiful, and offers access to the hotel; there are six individually designed and elegantly appointed two-bedroom apartments, in most cases with terraces and balconies, which are perfect for guests who have arranged a long stay in London. The apartments provide you with a welcome grocery pack, enabling you to be self-sufficient should you wish, but apartment guests can also take advantage of all hotel services including round the clock room service and the butler service.
Dining at The Milestone is also rather special. Whether you choose Cheneston's with its fine mahogany furniture, the relaxing Conservatory, or the fascinating split-level Stables Bar, you can be sure of a relaxed experience and superb food. Chef David Smith and his team serve the finest international cuisine and the best modern British dishes. Whether your choice is creative new cuisine or traditional comfort foods, or if you would like something special created for you, the team will do its best to oblige. If you wish to order something not on the menu, the kitchen will prepare it for you at any time, provided the ingredients are available; the kitchen uses mostly organic and locally sourced produced. Needless to say, there is a fine wine list, with more than four hundred vintages, to accompany the excellent food.
There are other facilities available for your comfort, including the elegantly panelled Park lounge and the fitness centre, with up-to-the-minute resistance pool and luxurious spa treatments. And best of all, perhaps, The Milestone is only a few minutes' walk from Kensington and Knightsbridge, and a short taxi ride will take you to the West End. The Royal Albert Hall, and the finest museums are also within easy reach.

Blakes Hotel, South Kensington, SW7

In the 1980s, in a pretty street in South Kensington, Anouska Hempel transformed two substantial Victorian mansions into a small luxurious boutique hotel by the name of Blakes. It soon developed into a couture retreat to numerous A-list celebrities. The hotel location is quiet and residential, but within easy reach of every part of London that isn't. Nearby Underground stations Gloucester Road and South Kensington provide numerous public transport links, Kensington and Knightsbridge upmarket shopping areas and West End entertainment are but a cab ride away, and museums like the Science Museum, V&A, and National History are within walking distance.

Blakes' 49 guest rooms and suites are each individually designed, some classically and others modernist, some in bold colour schemes and others in nothing but 'white on white', yet all in sumptuous comfort and luxury. Blakes Bar and Restaurant present an eclectic à la carte dinner menu featuring classic favourites like caviar and foie gras, fashionable fad health foods and oriental fusions, while for lunch, choices range from sandwiches and salads to burgers and fries; the wine list features equal variation. Hotel guests opting for in-room dining can choose from a room service menu featuring hearty snacks and meals and indulgent 'guilty pleasures'. The phenomenal Chinese Room adjacent to the restaurant makes for a very special function room and Suite 007, the epitome of romantic chic, is licensed for civil ceremonies.

In 2007, Blakes was sold to GuestInvest. Individual rooms at Blakes are now for sale to private investors, invited to make offers in excess of £1,000,000 per hotel room. Ownership gives entitlement to a number of nights' accommodation each year, and a share in hotel revenue.

Kensington House Hotel - Kensington

This delightful 19th century townhouse situated just off Kensington High Street
has views over the charming mews houses and tree lined streets behind the hotel, and over city rooftops towards Kensington High Street at the front. The hotel has a relaxed environment, with informal but extremely professional service in an atmosphere that encourages calmness. The bedrooms are bright and airy with the wonderful feature of large ornate windows; they have new contemporary furnishings which add a fresh touch to classic design. All forty rooms are designed to ensure that comfort combines with practicality, and whether you opt for double, twin, single or suite, they all have an ensuite bathroom equipped with either bath or shower and your own personal robe. The beds feature crisp linen sheets and wonderfully comfortable mattresses, so you're ensured of a good night's sleep. The Tiger Bar is an ideal venue for coffee and drinks, and although Kensington Gardens are just a gentle stroll away, you may prefer to visit the high quality shops, restaurants and cultural attractions that you can find nearby. As you would expect, you'll receive a warm welcome, and the hotel will be the perfect base from which you can easily explore all that London has to offer. A tray of refreshments is available in your room, and the hotel also offers round the clock room service.

Dukes Hotel, St James's, SW1

Tucked away between Piccadilly, Green Park and St. James's Park, Dukes Hotel is perhaps to some extent a hidden treasure to those who don't know it yet. This intimate and elegant boutique hotel is, however, deservedly renowned with past and present guests.

Yards from busy Piccadilly and Green Park tube station, next to the beauty and peace of both parks and within touching distance of the imposing stature of Buckingham Palace as well as the hustle and bustle of the West End, the five-star Dukes Hotel provides a popular retreat to business travellers and tourists.

The Dukes' spacious and elegant guest rooms and suites are classically inspired yet fairly recently refurbished and redecorated, equipped with air conditioning, satellite TV, multiple phone lines, private bar, personal safe, WiFi, and marble bathrooms. Guests can rely on 24‑hour room service, complimentary bottled water and newspapers, butler service, clothes and shoe valeting, business services and limousines by request.

The 'Marlborough', 'Sheridan' and 'Duke of Montrose' function rooms are available for business meetings, private dining or other special functions to serve 10 to 120 guests; the 'Marlborough' is licensed for civil ceremonies.

The Dukes' health club provides hotel guests facilities to exercise, with or without the guidance of a personal trainer, and the incorporated spa offers a variety of holistic treatments. The drawing room and courtyard Zen garden are oases for relaxation.

No matter what happens outside, inside the Dukes there always seems to be an ambiance of quiet comfort, as afternoon tea is served in the Conservatory, classic English dishes are served up in the Dining Room or guests in the Dukes Bar are served age-old cognacs or perfectly mixed Martinis.

Baglioni Hotel, Hyde Park Gate, SW7

The Baglioni Hotel London is a five-star London boutique hotel with Italian origins, overlooking Kensington Gardens. Its prime location is perfect for access to the park, Kensington and Knightsbridge shopping, West End shopping, dining and entertainment, and nearby Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Palace and museums (Natural History, Science, V&A).

Traditionally English on the outside, upon entering, the Baglioni soon reveals its Mediterranean connection through its contemporary but warm decor throughout. The interior of communal areas is contemporary, but with twists of Italian baroque. Guest rooms and suites are spacious, draped in luxury of soft fabrics in deep and warm colours, many have large windows and some provide beautiful views of Kensington Gardens. Plasma TVs and high speed internet connection come as standard, room service and full concierge services are available round the clock. Ensuite bathroom facilities feature wooden floors and copper basins. Some of the suites have their own foyers.

The Brunello Bar & Lounge is open all hours for coffee, light refreshments, pastries and light Italian meals. At lunch time and in the evening, the fabulous Brunello Restaurant serves deliciously fresh and honest à la carte Italian food. A function room benefiting from its own separate entrance suits business meetings and private functions, while the stunning Boutique 60 provides a great location suited to parties or casual events.

Understandably, owners and management are proud of their Italian heritage, so in‑room coffee-making facilities in some suites constitute of an espresso machine rather than the familiar kettle and sachets of instant coffee, and guests asking for the hotel's chauffeur service may find themselves being picked up in a Maserati.
