The Haymarket may be one of London’s top luxury boutique hotels, but its cozy, detailed design — courtesy of the Firmdale Group’s co-founder and design guru, Kit Kemp — makes it feel like a welcoming home away from home. The 50-room hotel is just a couple of blocks from Piccadilly Circus in the buzzing heart of the capital, but the ultra-spacious, sun-drenched guest rooms feel a world away, done up in the vibrant springtime palette of pinks, greens and yellows that (the property’s signature). For the theater crowd, colorful Brumus Restaurant offers pre- and post-performance set dinners, while the light-filled conservatory is a quiet spot for afternoon tea away from the busy city. Before checking out, be sure to check out the 60-foot basement pool, illuminated by a mesmerizing kinetic light sculpture.
In the Area
With a prime spot in trendy Soho, the Haymarket is a perfect base for exploring central London. The hotel is just five minutes from Trafalgar Square and the National Portrait Gallery, with its 16,000 portraits. Don’t miss the permanent exhibition “Twentieth-Century Americans” on the third floor. For a dose of retail therapy, head to Regent Street, where high-street favorites include Jaeger, T.M. Lewin, and Duchess of Cambridge–approved Reiss. You’ll want to make reservations in advance if you’re hoping to experience The Wolseley, a perennial hot spot famous for its celeb-spotting and fine dining. And, for a dose of fresh air, take your pick of nearby royal parks including Green Park, St. James Park, and the largest of all, Hyde Park.
How to Get There
Haven’t tried the overnight accommodation but used the hotel bar to meet a colleague and the coffee ☕️ was great, lovely wee muffin on coffee cup, very stylish and a friendly place to be welcomed. Great spot will use again!
Another perfect hotel from Firmdale group. We had the room on the front with a little Juliet balcony right opposite Her Majesty theatre and Phantom of the Opera. Beautiful communal areas, great staff and amazing beds.
Stayed in Hamyard Hotel during last end of Oct 2019 for 10 nights. this's the third stay at Firmdale Hotels (after Ham Yard & knightsbridge) and was as the others "Excellent Experience" starting from locations (quite and close to attractions), spacious and clean rooms, very friendly staff. Breakfast was included which we enjoyed every day the variety and excellent quality of food, excellent service and attention to details. will defiantly come back again!
