Claridge’s is both one of London’s most storied hotels—dating from the 1850s—and one of its most of-the-moment hotels. It found its identity in the 1920s and 30s, and is still an Art Deco jewel, even as it’s evolved and become an urban playground for the likes of celebs like Kate Moss and Jade Jagger. The glamorous, individually designed rooms and suites are some of the largest in London, with marble bathrooms, top-line entertainment systems and lush Bamford Natural and Organic toiletries. The spa is a haven on the top floor, with Sisley facials and a well-equipped gym.
In the Area
Mayfair is one of London’s most exclusive districts, filled with independent boutiques and stylish watering holes. It’s also close to the famous shopping on Bond Street and Knightsbridge’s temples to consumption, Harvey Nichols and Harrods. Guests can amuse themselves by strolling in Hyde Park or dining at other haute spots in the neighborhood, like Koffman’s at the Berkeley.
How to Get There
Visited Claridge's for high tea with my wife and 6.5 month old baby.
Staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. They definitely made for a memorable experience. They also had a high chair available and seemed very baby friendly.
The selection of tea was incredible and I wish we had the stomach space and time to try them all.
The sandwiches were tasty, fresh, and there was a good variety. We were even offered seconds, which we couldn't pass up.
Next came the scones, cream and jam which were also baked perfectly.
Finally we had several desserts brought to the table but we were already too full to finish them all. We had them packed up and they even gave us some fudge to go.
whenever we want to be pampered for a long week-end in london we stay at the Claridge´s. the style and level of luxury is unbeatable and even though prices are quite high it is worth every penny. some years ago there were several old style luxurious hotels, but most of them have followed the unfortunate trend of minimalism. the claridge´s has not and offers the best one can hope to experience in a hotel. the perfect place for those who value palacial spledor unlimited service and impeckable style
I enjoy London, having lived their during my university day and always jump at the chance for a visit. I prefer staying in Mayfair and the Claridge’s location is great for me. However, is it really worth it? Answer is, unfortunately, no. The rooms are small, overpriced in comparison to 5 star hotels in the area, and breakfast room is outdated and run in a very stiff environment. Perhaps I am too young for it, although I enjoy the British hotels this place just prefers to live in a former time. I find the rooms small, overpriced and staff out of touch with guests. The best part are the doormen, but everyone else from front desk to concierge are just too rude, unfriendly. Not my favorite place in London and surprised who does like.
