It is an indescribable feeling to stay in a place with a history. Not only do you travel back in time, but you will also get an unforgettable experience. Let us take you to some of our favourites in London.
Claridge’s (Opened 1854)
What started with a house on 51 Brook Street, was later transformed into an “art deco masterpiece” called Claridge’s in 1854 – one of London’s oldest hotels.
Over the years, the hotel has been the preferred choice for royalties and celebrities. In World War II, it was a refuge for dignitaries to Kate Moss’s celebration of her 30th birthday.
Today, Claridge’s is a symbol of timeless elegance and one of the world’s foremost luxury hotels. The hotel has preserved its unique heritage while offering all the comfort one could wish for.
Expect luxurious rooms and suites, individually decorated by some of the world’s most renowned designers.
The culinary experiences are exceptional. One of the highlights is, of course, Claridge’s award-winning afternoon tea – perfect from the interior to the live music.
St Pancras Renaissance London (Opened 1873)
The hotel was built in the 1860s when railway travel was a thriving industry, and the Midland Railway Service opened the magnificent hotel next to the train station.
It was constructed in Venetian Gothic architecture and instantly became a favourite of wealthy businessmen. However, despite its remarkable architecture and location, the hotel quickly became outdated and abandoned … Until 2002, when its full potential was realized when it re-opened as St Pancras Renaissance London.
The guest rooms exude elegance, luxury and style. Original details have been carefully preserved, but at the same time, the hotel offer amenities that today’s traveller desires. From the state-of-the-art entertainment system in the hotel room to the over-the-top spa, and exquisite meals from Gilbert Scott Bar’s modernized British menu.
Do not forget to visit the grand staircase, which with its winding stairs oozes romance and drama, and is the perfect spot for photography.
Savoy Hotel (Opened 1889)
From its inception, Savoy has set the standard for luxury, glamour and service. Over the years, the hotel has been a magnet for the rich, famous and glamorous – if the walls could talk!
Last year, the hotel celebrated 130 years, but today it is as relevant as ever. The hotel rooms, which are decorated in Edwardian or Art Deco style, elegant marble bathrooms and discreet technology, all radiate elegance and luxury.
Here are some of London’s best-known restaurants, such as Gordon Ramsay’s Savoy Grill and Kaspar’s Seafood Bar and Grill. For an unforgettable experience, attend one of the historical tours!
