From a slice of Soho to a 19th century pub reinvented as a hip retreat. London might be best known for its large historic hotels and contemporary city skyscrapers but it's the boutique hotels that really display its character. Chic, Georgian properties in the heart of London, romantic Chelsea boltholes just off the King's Road, bijoux destinations within easy reach of the Eurostar for a Parisian getaway or buzzing townhouses amidst the creative hubs that satellite the City. Whether you prefer vintage style or ultra contemporary surroundings. Whether you're visiting with friends, celebrating a special occasion, bringing the family to London for Christmas shopping and a show or enjoying a romantic weekend. These are some of London's top boutique hotels.
