The first hotel to have opened its doors in the British capital, Brown's Hotel can also boast the fact it was immortalised in the Agatha Christie novel 'At Bertram's Hotel'! The premises have somewhat changed, however, since the days when the famous writer stayed here. Yet although the hotel now offers a contemporary and designer setting, its walls still hold the atmosphere of the past...

    Location 6.0 /10

    Only a short distance from the streets of Green Park (and the metro station of the same name), Brown's Hotel enjoys an exclusive location in the British capital. Situated in the trendy Mayfair neighbourhood, a large majority of London's tourist attractions (Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, Bond Street, Oxford Street, Regent Street...) are easily accessible on foot, by taxi, or with the underground in record time. Additionally, it benefits from its close proximity to Bond Street and its shops, which are a must-see, as well as the art galleries of Cork Street and the theatres of the West End.

    Accommodation 9.70 /10

    87 rooms and 29 suites are available to guests. As the hotel is an ancient structure, each of these is unique in terms of its decor, size and layout. Indeed, Brown's is comprised of 11 former houses in total! All rooms are equipped with triple glazing, an iPod dock, a plasma television screen (with satellite), an internet connection, two telephone lines, individual air conditioning, a safe and a mini-bar. The bathrooms are fitted with either a shower or a bathtub, and a towel warmer. Other amenities include welcome toiletries by Quercus made from natural ingredients, and a hair dryer. Some even have a double hand basin. As for the interior decor, the hotel has managed to harmoniously blend classical and contemporary styles to create a space that is not only elegant but original, particularly in the suites once occupied by illustrious guests... Maybe you'll get the opportunity to visit them yourself!

    Overview 9.84 /10

    Two entrances lead into the heart of the mysterious Brown's Hotel - but don't confuse the reception with the concierge service! The entrance hall is actually hidden in the middle of the building, and is accessed via a corridor... Despite its mature age, Brown's Hotel keeps a youthful glow thanks to its modern facilities, such as its small business centre or its brand new spa with 2 separate rooms; a room for two people and a rather large and well-equipped fitness room.

    Food and drink 9.75 /10

    Brown's is the first London hotel to have its own restaurant. Guests previously had to dine in the privacy of their suite. The Albermale offers a new menu daily and offers very reasonable prices for a hotel of this standing: 25 pounds for two courses and 30 pounds for three. There's no danger of getting bored here...or of burning a hole in your pocket! Here you will find a choice of typical "British" dishes as well as an extensive selection of fish options. In addition, the hotel has an 'English Tea Room' open from 7:00am to 11:00pm, where a traditional "Afternoon Tea" or some champagne can be enjoyed, starting from 35 pounds per person. For clients who want some extra privacy, six private dining rooms are also available.

    To know

    Brown's Hotel has been a source of inspiration for many stars: it is where Rudyard Kipling wrote his famous 'Jungle Book', where Alexander Graham Bell conducted his first telephone call in one of the ground floor rooms, and where Theodore Roosevelt stayed many a time... A complete (and expensive) renovation in December 2005 costing 24 million pounds did not alter its charms of yesteryear.

      The Courthouse is to be chosen for its location (close to the long Oxford Street), as well as for its design comfort. One of the most prominent "boutique hotels" in London.

      The Sofitel London Saint James is one of the most sought-after hotels for a stay in London (whether on business or a weekend break), as it has everything to offer (comfort, location, cuisine, etc.) and reasonable prices. If the hotel is full (which is often the case), book a table in the restaurant for an excellent and reasonably-priced meal.

      The Washington Mayfair dates back to 1913. Renovated since (and on a regular basis), the hotel has fortunately retained its original Art Deco exterior appearance. It is now mixed with a contemporary decor and vintage Asian decorative features found by the owners and placed in various parts of the hotel's common areas. This hotel guarantees a lovely stay, whether you are in London on business or for a leisure break...

      This hotel is a safe choice in the district of luxury hotels (the Ritz is in the area), a location adapted to high class shopping, or for strolling around Green Park. You should also note that the Meridien Piccadilly has a swimming pool as well as a gym. Which will allow you to plan a sports session before dinner. In the restaurant illuminated by a glass roof. The setting and service are worth trying out.

      • Easyopinions nc
      • Value for money 7.45
      • Location 5.84

      The exclusive St. James's Hotel and Club is appropriately tucked away discreetly at the end of a cul-de-sac behind The Ritz on Piccadilly. While perhaps not quite of the same standing as its West End neighbour, the property is nonetheless a class act and has a history and following to rival that of any London hotel. The guestrooms are decorated and appointed to the highest standards and feature every amenity expected of a place like St. James's. As well as Michelin star dining and a service of the utmost attention to detail, the hotel still operates as a club to the rich and famous so you never know who you will be rubbing shoulders with when you stay here. More of a couples' or individual hotel, the St. James's is the place to come for intimacy, discretion and privacy.

      Standing in the very desirable Piccadilly district, the appropriately named Soho Sanctum Hotel opened the doors of its sanctuary in summer 2009. You won't need a spa and a host of massage treatments to feel good here though. The small scale of the hotel, its meticulous decor, and the impeccable service provided are enough to relax the body, mind, and soul. This small hotel will appeal to all types of clientele and particularly young couples.

      This legendary chain hotel, which has stood at the heart of the British capital for over a century, really needs no introduction. This uber-famous chain has only 3 European hotels, namely in Madrid, Paris, and London. Although they all are run independently of each other, they all share an exciting history and provide ultra-chic surroundings, from the communal areas to the huge guest rooms. Do be aware though, that if you're planning on visiting this legendary establishment, if only to partake of its traditional afternoon tea, you will need to show your credentials, be appropriately dressed, and have a nice full wallet.

      In very much the same way as the opening of The Savoy caused tongues to wag furiously back in 1889 with its electricity, new fangled lifts and en suite bathrooms, the reopening after three years of renovation on 10th October 2010 was the biggest talking point in the British, if not world, hotel industry. Brought back to its full Art Deco and Edwardian glory, The Savoy is now bigger and better than ever. The jewel in the crown of London's hotels now has several new features and much of what came before has had a full face lift. Immaculate rooms, exquisite dining and the finest of décor make of The Savoy the only place to stay in this town. It proves that class is timeless.

      • Value for money 7.47
      • Location 3.0

      The beautiful gothic St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, now almost 140 years old, is located right next to King's Cross St Pancras, which might not be in the most glamorous of neighbourhoods, but the hotel's 1800 period charm is unbeatable. The enormous hotel raised to the grey London skies with its stern-looking clock tower and turrets, looks extremely daunting, but once inside, the atmosphere is cosy and warm. A great place to stay for business people needing to be close to the station, but also a fun and unusual experience for leisure guests. The only hotel in the country to be built right on the railway, the St Pancras Renaissance is one of a kind; if you do not decide to stay here, try dropping in for a coffee or lunch at The Booking Office or Gilbert Scott.

      Don't let the appearance of this classical 19th century building fool you - although the inside is as elegant as its exterior facade, you're likely to find a few nice surprises in store. This may be due to the fact that this is no ordinary hotel! Instead, it is a 'large luxurious house', as the management likes to call it, located at the very heart of the elegant Kensington district and just a stone's throw from the park of the same name. You will definitely need to have a blank cheque book if you want to stay, or even just dine, at this 5 star establishment...

      This former town hall in East London represents one of the most remarkable transformations of any building in the capital. While most of the edifice's original architectural features have been guarded, this has not been seen as an obstacle to introducing a highly contemporary design into the hugely spacious rooms, world-class restaurant and divine pool and gym. Add to this a unique art project, great service and a vibrant history and you get one of the most unconventional hotels in London. Recommended for all types of traveller, especially those who are tired of staying in the town centre and are looking for an alternative location.
