Formerly The Royal Court Hotel, this welcoming four-star Chelsea gem has Peter Jones to its right, the Royal Court Theatre to its left, and a Sloane Square address to thrill shopaholics. Housed in a 19th-century building, it has played host to many an A-lister – most famously The Beatles who stayed here for several weeks during the Sixties.
Designed for wall-to-wall comfort, each of the 102 guest rooms assures understated elegance. With views of either the square itself or the historic Holy Trinity Church,you can expect bespoke wallpapers, carpeted flooring, and beds dressed with luxury 300-thread count Egyptian linens and soft pillows. Thoughtful touches include bathrooms with Elemis toiletries, Nespresso coffee machines and flatscreen TVs.
When you’re not busy indulging in a spot of retail therapy on the King’s Road, giving into temptation on the adjacent Sloane Street or high-tailing it down to Harvey Nics, take time to check out the dining options. There’s light bites, cocktails and ice cream at the Café & Bar, where continental breakfast is served, or more substantial French fare at the on-site Côte Brasserie.
Good to know
The hotel has a limited number of car parking spaces for guests (a nightly charge applies).
How to Get There
I would say I was somewhat disappointed by the stay,
The good points were:
Front desk smile and have basic customer service
Restaurant ran by Cote so reasonably priced
Good location (stone throw from Sloane Square station and Duke of York Square Market)
Bad points were:
Décor is just above average
Not well sound proofed, sounded like a party on our floor as next room was chatting and laughing loudly by the door
After complaining, happened again the following night so clearly the staff did not care even though I had to be up at 5am.
In room dining was quite bland (definitely order salt and pepper and sauce)
Conclusion, I have stayed at many hotels and would say this is more of a high 3 start hotel rather than 4. If you were just coming in to stay for a night and needed to be near a station then it would be ideal. Definitely not on the league of a 5 star as there is a lack of attention to detail especially customer experience.
Two of us stayed in a family club room and it was very spacious for The UK. The hotel was nice, the staff was great, however, the location was perfect. I will definitely stay here again. We are planning on returning in June.
My second stay at The Sloane Square Hotel did not disappoint. The junior suite on 4th floor had a lovely view and was spacious and comfortable. I love this location for shopping on Kings Road and the tube station just across the road makes getting around easy . Highly recommend.
Great 2night stay whilst in London to watch Champions Tennis at Royal Albert Hall. Double room small but nicely refurbished with aircon and Nespresso + strong free WiFi. Bathroom very well appointed. Great views over square but our 1st floor room was right over very busy Botanical pub/restaurant and music beat heard till 1am then revellers till 3am...advise asking for higher floor! Pre booked breakfast was excellent for a 'continental' with a comprehensive range of fresh dishes and cheaper than paying on the day. Staff all very friendly and helpful... We will stay again in this excellent central London location.
This hotel consistently hits the spot, they are simply 'on it'. It is our 'go to' hotel in London and this time we were visiting for my 60th birthday. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff here and I would particularly like to mention Loretta (whose birthday was the day after mine), Veronica who went the extra mile to ensure a smooth booking and Alex and Dalia whose cheerful service at breakfast make your morning so much more pleasant. But all of the staff are superb and simply want to make your stay a memorable one.
There are plenty of places to eat around Sloane Square including Cote Brasserie on the ground floor of the hotel. Perhaps an aperitif in the bar suits you whilst overlooking the bustling Sloane Square. The weekend we stayed included the Remembrance Parade with a service in the square backed by the choir from Holy Trinity Church, very moving indeed.
Alternatively you could peak out of your bedroom window and watch some celebrities from Made in Chelsea filming scenes for the program (my wife camera bombed them and fully expects to be in one of their shows. Me - I wouldn't recognise any of them or even know their names).
So, once more, to all the staff at Sloane Square Hotel, you helped to provide me with a memorial 60th birthday and for that I thank you. We will be back - rest assured.
