London is a fascinating city and paradise for those who love shopping . So, what better after a busy day than to stay in a special place? Ive picked two hotels that show the true charm and sophistication of this wonderful city.
I suggest two special hotels that reveal the true charm an sophistication of this great city.
The Stafford London Hotel
Located in the heart ofSt JamesThe Stafford London by Kempinski is a five star hotel that has an air of timelessness, where elegance and tradition create a haven of calm away from London’s busy streets. This is really a top class, luxury hotel, full of historical atmosphere and a real hidden gem for those seeking a home from home in London. The hotel is really well located in a nice quiet location in the St. James neighbourhood, a short walk from Buckingham Palace. And for all of you wine lovers, a visit to 380-year-old working wine cellars is a must.. The former home of nineteenth-century nobility, the hotel has kept part of its original structure:
The main house of The Stafford consists of three townhouses brought together in the 1920s. There are over 100 rooms in this building along with the Lounge – where you can indulge in afternoon tea, the wonderfully romantic Stafford Restaurant, and the world-famous American Bar where the martini is considered the best in town.
Carriage House?At the back in a private, cobbled courtyard there is the 18th century Carriage House, which was converted in 1990. Above the stables you’ll find private apartments, each including a separate living room. It has direct access from St. James’s Street so it really does feel live having your own address in St. Jamess, as you never need to go through the main lobby.
The Stafford Mews, which was a former office block, went through a 26 million transformation that resulted in just 26 suites. All the rooms are very large and spacious…
The Wine Cellar
Yes, this wine cella is 380 years old with an astonishing 6,000 wine bottle collection. There is a possibility to eat here and also to enjoy candlelit wine tasting tours of the cellars with their sommelier who has been with The Stafford for 25 years.
