The Lanesborough

Hyde Park, London, England

9
Telegraph expert rating

This mercilessly resplendent and highly polished Neoclassical mansion overlooking Hyde Park dazzles with gold-leaf embellishment, ornamental frosting, and a down-to-earth charm that effuses the feel of a private residence. Service (everywhere) is where The Lanesborough triumphs. An army of Clefs d’Or concierges greet you and each room has a butler on demand. But despite the formal setting, everyone is friendly and down-to-earth, which made the experience feel extra special.

The Beaumont

Mayfair, London, England

9
Telegraph expert rating

This luxury five-star hotel in the heart of Mayfair combines Art Deco-style interiors with Twenties panache. Everything is serviced and polished to a glossy tee. Enjoy immaculate service, an understated but exquisite spa, and commissioned public art-cum-suite, ROOM, by Antony Gormley. It’s positioned on a quiet road in Mayfair perpendicular to Selfridges on Oxford Street (a dream for devoted shoppers and gallery lovers) but is a short walk to Hyde Park – about seven minutes.

Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill

Marylebone, London, England

7
Telegraph expert rating

Just off Oxford Street, but with a tranquil setting overlooking one of central London’s characterful private squares, this is a distinctly British property. Diverse dining options, considerate service and the keys to an exclusive city-centre tennis court are among the amenities that await. With many of its rooms overlooking genteel Portman Square, the hotel’s setting feels calm and peaceful despite its centrality. Selfridges is just around the corner; Hyde Park is just five minutes or so on foot and Mayfair’s restaurants are just a stretch further on the other side of Oxford Street.

The Zetter Townhouse, Marylebone

Marylebone, London, England

8
Telegraph expert rating

Trinkets, curios and sepia photographs abound in this knowingly eccentric hotel. Together with its sibling in Clerkenwell this townhouse has won adoring fans for its full-on Victoriana theme and bar with top-notch cocktails. Rooms, meanwhile hide delights such as glow-in-the-dark vanity tables and alfresco tubs. The hotel sits on a row of immaculate Georgian townhouses, on the edge of Marylebone, a few streets back from Marble Arch station and the edges of Hyde Park (five minutes’ walk). This is a well-judged location, far enough away from the charmless back-end of Oxford Street, but close enough for convenient transport links.

The Berkeley Hotel

Knightsbridge, London, England

8
Telegraph expert rating

The Berkeley opened as a hotel in 1897. Since then, it’s stayed with the times – it was one of the first hotels in London to introduce air-conditioning in the Twenties, double-glazing in the Thirties, and one of the city’s only rooftop pools in the Seventies, which remains a coveted spot today, now accompanied by a spa. Here, a secret garden lined with daybeds, in full bloom in summer, is a good spot to wind down after a treatment. Special events are also held throughout summer, such as hula hoop or synchronised swimming classes.

Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane

Hyde Park, London, England

8
Telegraph expert rating

Bling meets brains is the formula for success at this prestigious Park Lane hotel. The blaring red colour scheme and flaunting furnishings are an intriguing lesson in décor designed to titillate the super rich, while service is brilliantly fine-tuned. The rooftop spa, with views of Hyde Park, is not to be missed. It overlooks the Dutch elms and copper beeches in the south-east portion of Hyde Park; the sauna, which has a window, boasts particularly magnificent vistas.

45 Park Lane

Hyde Park, London, England

8
Telegraph expert rating

An oasis of Art Deco and statement al-fresco art on the culturally parched concrete promenade of Park Lane, opposite Hyde Park. Commit to a steak at its pricey restaurant CUT and you will be having foam-mouthed reveries for years to come. The Art Deco building that hosts this hotel is exceptional. The curvaceous façade bristles with metal fins, and there’s a rather spectacular art installation on its side — a procession of bronze metal plates that soar to the eighth floor, and have a rippled, undulating effect when they catch the sun.

The Wellesley

Hyde Park, London, England

9
Telegraph expert rating

This hotel is buffered by Harrods and Harvey Nichols on one side, and the West End’s theatres and restaurants on the other; Hyde Park is just across the road, too. Housed in a decommissioned London Underground station, the Wellesley has adopted an Art Deco theme with gusto and seemingly no consideration for expense. Behind the hotel’s bronze doors, the marbled lobby shimmers under dazzling crystal chandeliers.

The Dorchester

Hyde Park, London, England

7
Telegraph expert rating

The Dorchester stands by Tilney Street, towards the southern end of Park Lane. Hyde Park Corner Underground station is within walking distance and the many shops, sights and restaurants of Mayfair and Piccadilly lie to the east. This is a glamorous five-star hotel with pedigree that attracts a wealthy clientele generally unconcerned with bills. The 250 rooms and suites rise to the ninth floor – 115 have a view to Hyde Park.

The Milestone Hotel

Hyde Park, London, England

7
Telegraph expert rating

The Milestone, opened in the 1920s, takes its name from the old cast iron milestone that stands outside and comprises three tall Victorian townhouses, the first of which, No 1 Kensington Court, has fine original features, including carved window frames and a black-and-white tiled floor. It stands on busy Kensington Road, near where it becomes Kensington High Street, with views of Kensington Park opposite.

Royal Lancaster London

Hyde Park, London, England

8
Telegraph expert rating

A dramatic British reinvention (almost) on the scale of Burberry, Daniel Craig’s James Bond or David Bowie circa 1983. Hyde Park across the road is the main attraction; many bedrooms oggle its lime and silver maple trees, and guests can nibble on homemade bircher muesli while enjoying views of the Italian Gardens from their breakfast table. The convenience of Lancaster Gate is often underappreciated – Oxford Street is a 15-minute walk away; Paddington Station a 20-minute amble.

London Hilton on Park Lane

Hyde Park, London, England

8
Telegraph expert rating

Located on the busy dual carriageway that is Park Lane, but hard to beat logistically – moments from Hyde Park and ideal for visits to Buckingham Palace, the West End and Oxford Street. The hotel certainly has its charms – incredible views, the lobby buzzes with energy, and the dining options are excellent. The views – go for an east-facing room – are stunning. The beds are also very comfortable, bathrooms smart, and the modern trappings – iPod dock, big television, monsoon shower – present and correct.

Mandarin Oriental, Hyde Park

Hyde Park, London, England

9
Telegraph expert rating

The Mandarin Oriental backs on to Hyde Park itself, with a welcome new outdoor terrace. Great for watching the Horseguards riding through the park. You’ll find a Far Eastern slant on the people-friendly, easy-going, part Edwardian part contemporary ground floor, and in the spa, but corridors and bedrooms are deeply traditional in decoration. It’s home to Heston Blumenthal’s highly-praised London address, Dinner.

InterContinental London Park Lane

Hyde Park, London, England

8
Telegraph expert rating

The InterContinental, close to Buckingham Palace, enjoys the best position of any Park Lane hotel. Hyde Park Corner Tube station is seconds from the door. The hotel plays it safe with a muted colour palette and, save for some impressive lighting features in the lobby, few distinct design flourishes. Service is exceptional. Adaptable, confident and knowledgeable staff are dab hands at dealing with all manner of guests and can handle all enquiries and requests with aplomb.

Baglioni Hotel London

Kensington, London, England

9
Telegraph expert rating

A frescoed, white façade overlooks Kensington Gardens here – ideal for trips to the palace, the museum district, the Royal Albert Hall and Harrods. There’s a delightfully kitsch decadence in the public areas. The restaurant, Brunello, is filled with elaborate chandeliers, giant vases and mirrors, and there’s a studded circular bar, water feature, and a garish gold, silver and black colour scheme.

COMO Metropolitan London

Hyde Park, London, England

7
Telegraph expert rating

In London’s luxury hotel heartland, at the southern end of Park Lane. The dual carriageway is hardly enticing, but the hotel is well positioned for day trips to Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park, and evenings out in Soho. Modern and minimalist. Since opening in 1997, in the shadow of some of London’s most prestigious hotels, the Metropolitan has snagged young, hip, design-conscious types in search of pared-back contemporary style.

Royal Garden Hotel

Hyde Park, London, England

8
Telegraph expert rating

A third of the 400 bedrooms here have stunning views of London’s lung – Hyde Park, and encircling landmark buildings, while the 10th floor contains the hotel’s best feature: an impressive restaurant that vies only with Windows on the World at the Hilton for its dazzling panorama. In a bold red and black livery, it offers expert service and authentic dishes, including delicate won ton and whole crispy duck.

Astor Hyde Park

Kensington, London, England

7
Telegraph expert rating

Situated a stone’s throw from Kensington Gardens and with the Royal Albert Hall and several museums a few minutes’ walk away, this hostel makes a good base for exploring some of London’s cultural highlights. Imposing from the outside, the Grade II-listed Victorian townhouse is equally grand on the inside. The elegant common room next to reception, with its fireplace and wood panelling, is particularly impressive.

The Gore

Kensington, London, England

8
Telegraph expert rating

If you’ve ever dreamed of staying in one of the blazing white stucco terraces that surround Hyde Park, then The Gore might be for you. All the better if you have a penchant for Venetian beds and damask chaise longues. The restaurant has seen better centuries, but the bar is one of the best-kept secrets in SW7. The hotel is perfectly placed for jaunts to the cluster of museums around South Kensington (the V&A, Natural History and Science Museums), which are a five-minute stroll away. You can also practically hear the throbbing of violins from The Royal Albert Hall; three minutes on foot.
