Classic British Meets Brooklyn Cool

Belgravia’s hotels are a combination of unadulterated luxury and low-key
casual cool, ranging from the luxurious and iconic Berkeley, to the unobtrusive Orange,
with just four comfortable guest rooms and a lively pub downstairs.
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.
