On the luxury end of the spectrum is the gracious Goring
, the world’s first hotel built with en suite bathrooms throughout, and owned by the same family for over 100 years. The Goring’s virtues include beautiful private gardens, a spacious David Linley-designed dining room, fine British cuisine, a 500-plus-bin wine list, and is the place where the Duchess of Cambridge spent the night before her wedding no less. Other five-star options include the elegant Berkeley
, with a Marcus Wareing restaurant, and the spacious 87-room Jumeirah Lowndes
Should you wish to stay in a more low-key hotel, consider the Halkin by COMO
, in Halkin Street, or Belgraves
, in Chesham Place. The former is sleek, minimal and Zen-like, boasting brilliant Basque cuisine, while the latter brings a bit of Brooklyn to Belgravia, with its exposed brick walls and eclectic, bohemian decor by Tara Bernerd. Finally, the Lord Milner
is a luxury bed-and-breakfast set in a fetching Ebury Street town house, perfect for one-night stays.
For those on a budget, try Z Hotel
in Lower Belgrave Street or B+B Belgravia
in Ebury Street.
