The capital of England, London is not only one of the most powerful cities but also one of the most favourite tourist destinations in the world. Blessed with a rich history, historical and modern architecture juxtaposed in perfect harmony, and cultural diversity, London Is many things, and to appreciate it sincerely, you must be here in person.
Your experience in London depends on a number of things, aside from will and excitement. One such thing is a good accommodation. London has many luxurious hotels many of which have a legacy of their own. They often rank among the best hotels in the world, and despite being on the expensive side (obviously!), they will offer you everything you can imagine to get to your service. Luxury will be a normal routine and trust me, you will have severe withdrawal symptoms once you leave it behind.
I have listed 10 luxury hotels in London you may want to consider staying at:
- Savoy Hotel London.
2 Savoy Ct, Strand, London WC2R 0EZ, UK
One of the highest-rated hotels in the United Kingdom, Savoy Hotel London is the prestige of the city. It was constructed in the late 19th century as a consequence of which it has acquired historical importance. One of the biggest giveaways of the hotel is its location which is close to the three primary attractions of the city namely the London Eye, Piccadilly Circus and the National gallery.
- Rosewood London.
252 High Holborn, Holborn, London WC1V 7EN, UK
Another hotel from history, Rosewood London stands as a remarkable piece of architecture rightly commanding respect and admiration from onlookers and loungers alike. It was built in the early 20th century and incorporates heavy use of Edwardian architectural styles. While there are a lot of things at which the hotel is great, its breakfast is counted as the best in the city. Another USP of this hotel is its pet-friendliness which is not usually found everywhere.
- Brown’s Hotel London.
Albemarle St, Mayfair, London W1S 4BP, UK
Located in Mayfair, Brown’s Hotel is a beautifully constructed and sophisticatedly maintained hotel having a legacy of more 175 years. Ever since its establishment, it has been a favourite of many famous personalities such as Rudyard Kipling and Alexander Graham Bell. Today, the hotel does not embody all the original decorations and many modern artworks have been incorporated.
- Four Seasons Hotel London.
Four Seasons Hotel London is not as old as the other three hotels I mentioned, but it has a distinct, irreplaceable place as one of the best luxurious hotels in the city which none can interfere with. Originally known as Inn on the Park London, the hotel was built in 1970. It is situated very close to mainstream London attractions such as Buckingham Palace. Aside from this, and more importantly, the hotel offers you an exemplary staff, delicious food, and rooms with stunning views. The room service is rated as top-notch here so you are assured that all your needs will be met and issues will be swiftly resolved.
- Shangri-La Hotel at The Shard London.
If there is any hotel with the most serene and breathtaking views of the lifeline of the city, River Thames, then it is Shangri La Hotel. Shangri La London is a part of the internationally acclaimed Hong Kong Hotel Management chain which owns more than 100 luxury hotels across the globe. Its London branch is one of its main highlights. The hotel is situated close to mainstream tourist attractions such as Hyde Park, offers grandiose rooms, indoor recreational facilities, serves appetizing dining options, and whatnot.

- The Lanesborough London.
Hyde Park Corner, London SW1X 7TA, United Kingdom
Featuring a rather spacious and grand display of neoclassical architecture, Lanesborough is a five-star luxury hotel located at the Hyde Park Corner and is a relatively young addition to the list. Despite a historied past, The Lanesborough only opened as a hotel in late 1991, but quickly went on to become one of the best, most sophisticated luxury hotels in the country. Mind you, it can be very expensive, even more expensive than the ones mentioned here. While you are here, make sure you eat at Michelin-starred Céleste, which honors British heritage and provenance with modern European creativity.
- Mandarin Oriental Hotel Hyde Park London.
66 Knightsbridge, Westminster Borough, London, SW1X 7LA, United Kingdom
Built in 1902, the hotel is managed to by the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. It is one of the most stylish hotels in the Knightsbridge district and features an extensive display of Edwardian architectural style. The hotel is temporarily closed because of the outbreak of fire in 2018, however, you should expect it to re-open with a bang after refurbishment is complete.
- The Langham Hotel London.
1C Portland Pl, Marylebone, London W1B 1JA, UK
Just in case you want to douse yourself in an Asiatic atmosphere, then the Langham Hotel is the best choice. Langham Hotel London is one of the largest traditionally styled hotels in the city and is regarded as one of the finest in the world. It was built in 1865 and ever since then has been visited by big names in the world such as Princess Diana, Winston Churchill and Ayumi Hamasaki.

- Hotel Café Royal London.
68 Regent Street , London, W1B 4DY UK
Aside from its favourable location in Piccadilly, Hotel Café Royal offers what most hotels do not: the services of a private butler, and this is said to be one of the primary reasons for its high rates. The hotel offers a great many luxuries which have been enjoyed and popularised by notable personalities such as Princess Diana, Oscar Wilde, Muhammad Ali and George Bernard Shaw.
