This 5-star hotel offers a classy Knightsbridge location, modern luxury, and impeccable service – plus a rooftop pool. Some rooms have views of Hyde Park, across the road, and you can walk to Harrods, Harvey Nichols, and the designer boutiques of Sloane Street in minutes.
The Berkeley is home to restaurants by legendary chefs Pierre Koffmann and Marcus Wareing – the latter has 2 Michelin stars. You can order a cocktail in the Blue Bar or head to the Caramel Room for Prêt-à-Portea afternoon tea, where cakes masquerade as mini shoes and handbags.
Guests are wowed by the rooms, with their Italian marble bathrooms, elegant decor, and beautiful fabrics. You’ll have free WiFi and flat-screen TV with premium channels and pay movies. Special touches include fresh flowers, bathrobes and slippers, and Bamford toiletries.
As well as the rooftop pool, this hotel includes a health club and spa, complete with gym, sauna, and steam room. If you need to work as well as play, there’s a 24-hour business center..
The Berkeley is between Knightsbridge and Hyde Park Corner Tube Stations – it’s a 2-minute walk either way. You’ll be within a 15-minute walk of both Buckingham Palace and Kensington Gardens, and about a mile from the museums of South Kensington.
