    Good Hotel Guide Review

    Step through the doorway into the marble foyer of this red brick Victorian mansion, to be transported from 21st-century London. In 2005, Pugliese entrepreneur Marisa Melpignano bought the former Sloane Hotel and transformed it into a treasure trove. From the ‘luxurious’ and ‘inviting’ drawing room (open fire, fresh flowers) to the theatrical bedrooms, it’s filled with European art and antiques – cherub clocks, lamps and vases, four-poster beds, gilt-framed mirrors and paintings, swags and statuary. Despite the ‘pleasing’ old-world setting, all rooms are kitted out with modern comforts: air conditioning, a marble bathroom, top-end linens, posh toiletries. A suite in the former master bedroom has a king-size bed with a towering draped bedhead, a walk-in wardrobe, a sitting area with a Victorian desk, and a private balcony. The ‘charming’ staff bring drinks and snacks to the room; high above the street, find a sunny roof terrace for afternoon tea. Take breakfast there, or in the breakfast room, with freshly squeezed orange juice, pastries, ‘good coffee’ (your hosts are Italian, after all). Sloane Square is just around the corner.
