When trying to pick a hotel to stay in, often a crucial error is focusing on the hotel in general over the room itself. After all, the room is where you spend most of your time at a hotel, especially in a city like London where a large part of your stay will be out and about. That marble lobby doesn’t really go far when there’s no hot water or your legs stick over the end of the bed. 

From stunning private terrace terraces and seven-bedrooms suites, to skyscraper views and historic lofts, here are the hotels with the most beautiful, unique and luxurious rooms in London. 

The Corinthia

Offering some of the best views in London (all from your own private terrace), The Corinthia’s Royal Penthouse is where to enjoy the warmer months. A host of tailored options makes this the perfect London locale. Choose additional connecting rooms, spa services in the privacy of your own treatment room and the attention of a personal driver and butler.

The Twenty Two

Set in a storied Edwardian manor on Grosvenor Square, The Twenty Two is a hotel and cultural space dedicated to the art of lingering.  Thirty-one lavish bedrooms and suites — including a mews house — suit every need from spur-of-the-moment stays to longer Mayfair sojourns.

We love The Audley Suite, complete with a striking decor where red plays a starring role, and stunning views. With opulent, maximalist interiors inspired by 18th-century France, designer Natalia Miyar has paid homage to the grandeur of this extraordinary former family home.
