Best Hotels in London


With its enviable location in the heart of London, situated on the borders of Knightsbridge and Belgravia and with panoramic views of Hyde Park, The Lanesborough has long been considered one of the world’s most luxurious hotels.

Its elegant décor, exquisite cuisine, unsurpassed attention to detail and world-renowned service are second to none. The hotel’s recently launched restaurant, Apsleys, a Heinz Beck Restaurant, was awarded its first Michelin star in February 2010.
