Style for days in one of the poshest neighborhoods in London, with mid-century vibes and a member's-club-like atmosphere
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.
