NH Harrington Hall Hotel
5-25 Harrington Gardens, South Kensington, London, SW7 4JW
Encompassing much of a city block, this 200-room hotel offers a small range of room sizes, all ensuite with lots of square footage, chintz and plaid. The on-site gym features a sauna, and the lobby features a cozy (if a bit staid) lounge bar.

The Regency
100 Queen’s Gate, London, SW7 5AG
The largest independent hotel in London, with 203 fair-sized to spacious, simply-furnished rooms; all have comfortable beds. On-site, there’s a small and a cozy cocktail bar. The large, ornate Modern British/European restaurant serves four meals a day, and the Pavilion Terrace, with its glass conservatory ceiling, is an absolutely lovely place to take afternoon tea.

The Gore Hotel
190 Queen’s Gate London SW7 5EX
One of the most gorgeously preserved Edwardian hotels in London, the Gore is pure romance. Rooms are large and lavishly furnished, and a series of luxurious signature suites are named for famous repeat guests like Judy Garland. As the official hotel of the Royal Albert Hall, the elegant on-site bistro and cozy, glowy and wood-paneled bar are generally hopping with a cultured crowd.

The Kensington Hotel
109-113 Queen’s Gate, South Kensington, London, SW7 5LR
A sumptuous and fully-renovated boutique townhouse hotel that features (especially in this price range) extremely comfortable and luxurious rooms and suites. On-site there’s a state-of-the-art fitness center with spa treatment rooms, a swanky little cocktail bar, and a Modern British restaurant.

Number Sixteen
16 Sumner Place, London, SW7 3EG

Radisson Edwardian Vanderbilt Hotel
68-86 Cromwell Road, London SW7 5BT
Set in a restored Georgian mansion, this luxuriously furnished hotel offers a chance to stay in a bit of the area’s past with modern comforts like an on-site fitness room and free wi-fi. The bright, modern restaurant serves traditional British cuisine, three meals a day, and the lounge bar feels like an aristocratic sitting room that just happens to have overstuffed armchairs.

33 Roland Gardens, London SW7 3PF
The Victorian facade contains an ultra-fashionable small hotel where every quiet, spacious room is uniquely furnished; beds are generally four-poster and draped with luxurious fabrics. The restaurant, which serves four meals a day (including afternoon tea) combines European and Chinese cuisine; the lavish bar is designed to look like period Chinoiserie artwork.
