Best London Five Star Hotels

Most Popular Areas in London for 5-Star Hotels

How do Swedish massages and Egyptian-cotton-topped beds, grand Victorian lounges and bespoke English gin bars, heritage architecture and sweeping views of landmarks like Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament sound? If that's your line of luxury, then London's offering of high-end stays certainly won't disappoint. Some shoulder above the River Thames from the happening South Bank, flaunting contemporary shells with rich suites and spas within. Others adorn Westminster with neo-Gothic facades and Chateaux-style looks. Others overlook the Tower on Tower Hill, touting sophisticated rooms next to rich historical sites.

Top 5-Star Hotels in London

London 5-star hotels are topped by the likes of The Royal Horseguards. It really does live up to its regal moniker, what with lobbies brimming with handmade furniture, ornamented rooms fit for monarchs and private gardens out front. The classiness continues across the Thames at the Mondrian. That's home to the otherworldly Agua Bathhouse Spa and has a duo of fine-dining restaurants on site. And there's even more at the Sofitel London St James, replete with interiors that fuse elegant Oriental touches with dashes of contemporary English style.

Where to Find the Best Restaurants in London

Let the pink champagne flow and the caviar canapes come by heading down to the well-to-do Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Celeb names like Gordon Ramsay adorn the fronts of the restaurants there, guaranteeing some of the most exclusive gastronomy in the capital. Refined flavours and meticulously crafted French cuisine is what's popular in the affluent streets of Mayfair just east of Hyde Park – expect more famous names to choose from. And then there's Soho, an area where boho coffeeshops and nightclubs are interspersed with chic Italian brasseries and innovative fusion restaurants.

The Most Popular Things to do in London

It's not just about the spas and the swish cocktail bars in those luxury hotels in London. These exclusive places will also get you to some of the hottest areas of the city. Just take the array of bucket-list sites on the menu for those staying in the palatial options on the South Bank – from sunset rides on the London Eye to refined evenings of Bach or Beethoven in the Royal Festival Hall. Over in the Borough of Chelsea, you can enjoy private shopping tours of Harrods and Harvey Nicks, or luxurious afternoon teas in the independent boutiques.

Best Ways to Get Around London

One great way to get around this sprawling metropolis in style is with a private chauffer. Most London five-star hotels will be able to help you organise a driver and a bespoke car to suit your needs for whatever length of time it's required. It's also possible to charter a helicopter to travel faster than everybody else. Not only can they get you from A to B in the capital but also back and forth to the first-class terminals at Heathrow, or even out to the Home Counties for a spot of horseracing or country walking in the day.
