Chelsea/Kensington

Hotels in Chelsea/Kensington

This stately red-brick Victorian hotel with plush, antiques-filled interiors, opposite Kensington Palace has 57 rooms, 6 apartments, 1 restaurant, and 1 bar, all perfectly refined and with the best service around.

The iron railings, brass doorknocker, and smart Georgian exterior set up the townhouse ambiance at Sydney House in Chelsea.

Only the faintest signs of life outside can be heard from Montagu Place Hotel, a secluded, 16-room Georgian town house in regal Marylebone.

For clean, no frills accommodations, EasyHotel covers the basics of a bed and a bathroom. Its trademark color, soda-pop orange, reappears everywhere from the street signs to the guest room doors.

Set on the historic chelsea park that gives the property its name, the revamped 102-room Sloane Square hotel is a pared-down yet polished gem imbued with traditional British flair. Floral wallpaper by Neisha Crossland and Scottish-tartan wool bedspreads set the mood in the comfortable rooms.

From the flower planters to the bedroom pillows, MyHotel Chelsea brims with warm shades of pink. Architect James Soane of Project Orange reinvigorated this space with the color, turning a former Victorian-era police station into a modern hotel.

Centrally located in Knightsbridge, the Jumeirah Carlton Tower hotel is within a five-minute walk of major attractions, including Harrods and the Sloane Street designer stores, which range from Louis Vuitton to Giorgio Armani.

At base2stay, a deceptively normal white stucco and wrought iron exterior belies a stylish interior representing one of the most innovative hotel concepts in London.
