The plush bedrooms also feature French doors or large windows with views – it’s a city that deserves to be seen. You should be able to spot St James's Church at Piccadilly, right across the street.

For the evening, the glitzy restaurants of Mayfair are calling. You won’t even need to hail a black cab, as it’s only a ten-minute walk away. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
