Set in cobblestoned Spitalfields—once an area home to vagabonds and thieves, and now London’s most of-the-moment neighborhood—Batty Langley’s is the brainchild of hoteliers Peter McKay and Douglas Blain The duo restored two Georgian town houses to design perfection, and named their project after a celebrated architect from the era. To enter this exclusive address, you’ve got to ring a special bell (only overnight guests can get past the locked front door). Once inside, you’ll find spacious ground-floor rooms including a parlor and library—but no buzzing restaurant, and that’s intentional. The 29 guest rooms drip with authentic period details, from the carved-oak four-posters and oil paintings to the cast-iron roll-top baths—think Downton Abbey right in the heart of town.
