Anticipate a look that’s slightly New York-meets-Scandi in this bright hotel, designed for no-frills home-from-home stays in the city (book the Deluxe Suite with kitchenette if you really want to settle in). It’s perfect for leisure and business – the downstairs lounge/workspace has a bar-cum-cafe for croissants and coffee under a glass atrium. The setting – in a quiet side street in the heart of Chelsea – puts you right by the upmarket shops, restaurants and cafes of Brompton Cross and the King’s Road. Loftier pursuits? Stroll to the much-loved Natural History Museum, a 10-minute walk away.
