Baglioni Hotel London is a little slice of Italian-style paradise in the heart of Central London’s Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. A warm, Italian welcome and cosy ambience await, while just steps away are some of the world’s most impressive monuments, shops, restaurants and bars.
There’s an exclusive ring to the area, and the hotel enjoys a fabulous view of Hyde Park where fans of the British royal family can visit Kensington Palace, home of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge as well as Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex (amongst others). And the Royal Albert Hall, the Natural History Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum are within close proximity too.
Designed to be as luxurious and welcoming as an elegant Italian home, rooms and suites are decadently dressed in cream and beige with black and gold details and finished with dark wood floors. If you’re after something seriously special as well as more space, some suites feature fireplaces and private terraces with views of Kensington Gardens. Families should book one of the Deluxe Family Suites with a Park View which come with two bedrooms and two large living areas, offering the perfect home away from home after a long day.
Italy’s finest is found at Brunello Bar And Restaurant where typical Italian flavours are on the order of the day. There’s a ‘60s twist to the decor that gives it the feel of an authentic Italian trattoria. It’s a popular place for locals to meet, too, and the early evening aperitivo hour – when drinks are served with olives and arancini – is the perfect opportunity to meet and mingle. The main menu features signature dishes such as risotto alla Milanese and tagliolini all’ amatriciana, and there’s a fantastic wine list to boot. Another nice offering, especially if you fancy something sweet, is the afternoon tea with Italian twist that includes delicious cannoli with ricotta.
For a pick-me-up of a different kind, visit the Baglioni Spa for a luxurious treatment or simply wallow away a half hour in the steam room. Meanwhile, the gym features cardio, free weights and strength training equipment as well as personal training sessions.
