Belgravia has always been one of London’s poshest districts, and The Hari—the first in a collection of new boutique properties from Harilela Hotels—keeps up the swank factor admirably. A mid-century modern look created by British interior designer Tara Bernerd means lots of soft velvet and bespoke wooden fixtures, plus walk-in showers with UK-crafted Noble Isle amenities. Public spaces like the bar and its lovely garden terrace with a retractable roof (an unfortunate necessity in rainy England) have touches like a cigar humidor, while the Il Pampero restaurant, with its show-stopping central square bar, serves up picture-perfect Italian dishes like house-made pappardelle with lobster and calf livers with onion. The location, within spitting distance of many of the city’s top sights and chic restaurants, can’t be beat—and Harrods is just minutes away, so shopaholics beware.
In the Area
Always wanted to try a cronut? The Dominique Ansel Bakery is just five minutes’ walk from the hotel—pop in for a pastry and espresso to jumpstart a day of sightseeing. At the other end of the day, Barts Speakeasy, a Prohibition-style bar in an apartment block complete with live piano and clever cocktails, is within stumbling distance of your bed. The Saatchi Gallery, one of London’s art space heavyweights, is a half mile from the hotel. Stop here to find work by artists about to make it big. In the other direction is the sprawl of Hyde Park, home to Kensington Palace, the Serpentine Gallery and, on sunny days, what seems like all of London out having a good time. There are three underground stops within a 10-minute walk, making it easy to explore the city.
How to Get There
Stayed here for a couple of nights whilst I was in the area for business earlier this month. Quick check in, a lovely & helpful young lady checked me and made me feel very welcome. Very good sized room, with the bed lovely and clean. I didn’t eat at night here, but the breakfast was brilliant both days.
Had a wonderful time at this hotel and was particularly impressed with the housekeeping. The staff was also very friendly and welcoming. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in London.
The service and overall experience at The Hari were wonderful. The staff went out of their way to take care of any needs and the rooms were spacious, beautiful and very clean. Small touches like being addressed by name after the first day and homemade desserts at the front desk highlight their intention to make the whole trip wonderful. The location was an easy walk to shopping, museums and multiple restaurant options. We used the restaurant in the hotel for both a breakfast and a dinner, and would have gone back with the exception that we wanted to eat in different restaurants each night. We would definitely go back to The Hari.
Went for a 3 day family trip and I only have good words for the hotel and its staff. Incredible room, great views, amazing breakfast and dinner, super cozy crib + blanket for our 2 year old baby. A+++!!
Good, clean, friendly staff and a great location minutes away from all your main landmarks in London, the rooms size and service are excellent, expensive but that’s how it is in London highly recommend
