Good Hotel Guide Review

Take tea on the sunny roof terrace above a quiet residential street at this ‘luxurious, inviting hotel’ – or, better yet, have an espresso and imagine you’re in Italy. Built in 1887 as private residences, these adjoining Victorian red brick-and-stone town houses have been owned since 2005 by Pugliese hotelier Marisa Melpignano. Beyond the marbled entrance lobby, the interiors are lavishly styled. There are ornate door cases and fireplaces, oil paintings and gilt-framed mirrors, antiques and display cabinets of collectables; everywhere, seemingly, silk, stripes, ormolu and putti. The individually decorated bedrooms, all with air conditioning, have a marble bathroom; several have a balcony or terrace. Among the grander rooms, the gallery suites have a mezzanine seating area, perhaps even a bespoke four-poster bed – but, to feel like you’re in your own palazzo, book a junior suite with a positively regal bed and a walk-in wardrobe. Breakfast, with freshly squeezed orange juice and good pastries, may be taken in the basement dining room or on the terrace in good weather. The Royal Court Theatre and the King’s Road are minutes away. More reports, please.
