When it comes to luxurious living, London doesn’t disappoint.
London is a city with opulent grandeur and edgy urban grit in equal measure. We’re here to help you discover a little more of the lavish lifestyle that’s possible in this city. Prepare to drool over some seriously stunning properties. Read on for a list of 8 of our favourite luxury stays in London.
One of London’s most fashionable areas, Mayfair is the home of multiple 5-star hotels and a plethora of luxury designer stores. Basing yourself here means you’re pretty much walking distance from most famous London sites and shopping destinations. Oh, and there are also plenty of stylish bars here if you want a taste of the high end London nightlife.
Princess of Mayfair
The name sets high expectations of a grand interior, and this Mayfair apartment does not disappoint. Staying here can only be described as a regal experience. Each piece of furniture has been carefully selected and artfully displayed. This would be a perfect choice for a romantic special occasion, or a treat in the heart of London for you and a friend.
Part of the luxurious Flemings Mayfair hotel, this one bedroom suite is 5-star through and through. You’ll feel thoroughly pampered after a night here as you’ll have your own apartment space with all the benefits of a hotel. That includes a 24 hour concierge, room service and an on-site gym. Sign us up, please.
Nearby: What isn’t nearby? You’re a short stroll from fresh air at Hyde Park, shopping at Oxford street, and delicious Middle-Eastern cuisine on Edgware Road.
This extremely affluent neighbourhood is particularly popular with wealthy international visitors from all around the world. This could in part be due to the fact that it’s home to luxury department meccas Harrods and Harvey Nichols, as well as the flagship stores for many famous designers.
This townhouse is tastefully decorated yet comfortable at the same time. And that isn’t an easy combination to find. You’ll look forward to coming home to sink into the sumptuous bedding, or take a relaxing hot bath in the roll top tube. There are also two outdoor spaces, with a little balcony and cosy and charming garden.
If you’re searching for that elusive combination of luxurious and quirky, stop right here. This Knightsbridge apartment offers both in abundance. We love the mirrored (and somewhat unexpected) conservatory, the truly eclectic art collection, and the unusual domed kitchen ceiling.
Nearby: To stay in Knightsbridge and not visit Harrods would, frankly, be nothing short of a travesty. The historic department store has achieved icon status for a reason. There are over 300 departments across its seven floors, so no shopaholic could possibly be left wanting. And then of course, there’s the famous Harrods Food Hall.
Staying in Kensington means having everything you could possibly need at your doorstep. There’s shopping and restaurant options galore at High Street Kensington, and lots of art and culture to soak in in South Kensington. You can also stroll over to Kensington Palace to explore the lovely Kensington Gardens.
The Power Suite
This modern suite is perfect for a luxurious business stay in London. It’s brightly lit with natural light streaming in, and there’s office space downstairs should you need it. If you like a more contemporary style of decor, this place has mastered modern chic.
Brompton Square V
This is one of those London properties that kinda has to be seen to be believed. But for now, you’ll just have to make do with these images. This 7 (yes, 7) floor luxury townhouse includes a cinema room for movie nights in. And every corner of the home has an Instagram-worthy piece of provocative and daring art on show. Not for the faint hearted.
Nearby: Head to the museums in South Kensington. The Natural History Museum with its jaw dropping architecture is home to around 80 million (yes, million!) animal, rock and plant specimen. Continue on to the nearby Victoria & Albert Museum for an impressive dosage of art and fashion.
Pimlico is about as central as you can get in London. Its proximity to Victoria station means its brilliantly connected to the rest of the city, but it still has a peaceful vibe within the streets. There’s lots of luxury accomodation options on offer here.
If monochrome is your thing, you’re about to enter heaven. This 3 bedroom maisonette in Pimlico can only be described as exquisite. The style quotient is so high, it can only be described as stepping into a magazine. This is the place to stay if you’re seeking some serious design inspiration.
Another Pimlico property that oozes style and luxury is this 5 bedroom townhouse near Victoria. There’s a music room, pretty balcony space, charming little sun room, and traditional Aga amongst the many features Sir Eccleston has to offer. Location-wise, it doesn’t get much better than this if you want to be right in the midst of it all (without sacrificing space and luxury, of course).
Nearby: You’re close to the Queen in Buckingham Palace, and just a short stroll from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. The above two properties are perfectly located to walk to all the major London attractions. Not that you’ll ever want to leave them.
