1. The Karma Sanctum Soho Hotel
In the heart of Soho, it seems like this is where London comes to party. And it’s thanks to designer Lesley Purcell for putting plenty of rock star glamour into this hotel. With 30 rooms, the style here is edgy. This hotel has an eclectic mix from sexy and masculine to sensual and exotic.
2. The Savoy, Covent Garden
For fans of Edwardian and Art Deco style, discovering The Savoy‘s stunning interior is a must. The American Bar gets our vote partly because it’s the longest standing cocktail bar in the capital. However, its redesign by Robert Angell Design International has made this one of our favourite London hotels. We love the plush leather banquettes with chrome arm detailing and waxed linen on the walls for classic 1930s elegance.
3. Ham Yard Hotel, Soho
Back to Soho. Why, we hear you say? Because we can’t let the Ham Yard, another of our favourite London hotels, slip through our fingers. Every time we visit this delectable design hotel, the interior sets the scene perfectly for our trip. With 91 rooms and suites (plus 24 apartments) this Firmdale hotel oozes everything glam. We adore the polished bathrooms and a multitude of colour schemes for different rooms. In addition, each room is beautifully finished with luxury furnishings from curtains and cushions to wall coverings and headboards.
4. The Langham, Marylebone
If you’re considering how to design your living room, we think The Langham’s Sterling suite could be a great place to start. You will probably think it’s perfect if you’re looking for a hint of Victorian charm and modern elegance. Beautiful bespoke furnishings with hints of gold opulence feature throughout this London hotel. Even the cushions are perfectly plumped for a more quintessentially English design.
5. The Connaught, Mayfair
Last, but by no means least, you’ll find bags of inspiration from The Connaught for the perfect mix of contemporary and traditional in your home. Sounds easy to achieve, we know, but it’s worth checking out the Jean-Georges striking, contemporary restaurant by interior architect John Heah. Details to behold include the accents of stained glass while designer Guy Oliver was brought in to create a more traditional feel to other rooms in this beautiful, boutique hotel.
