Scenic places to stay in Central London

Just because you’re in the heart of a vibrant area doesn’t mean that you can’t find peace and quiet. There are plenty of alternatives to the sprawling and bustling city hotels.

For a touch of luxury visit The Montague On The Gardens [map], a delightful four-star hotel at Montague Street. Close to some fantastic gardens and with its own conservatory and al fresco dining in good weather, The Montague is a great place for romance or if you’re in the mood to treat yourself. Bedrooms are elegant and offer visitors personal touches that make this a very special accommodation option.

If you’re looking for a glimpse of Dickensian England book into The Kensington Gardens Hotel [map], Kensington Gardens Square, where you’ll find a luxurious hotel overlooking a pretty little Victorian Square. Its close proximity to Hyde Park [map] and Notting Hill [map] makes this hotel a popular place with tourists from overseas.

Historians also head to The Rookery [map], Peter’s Lane, Cowcross Street. Located in converted 18th century houses The Rookery offers visitors modern luxuries in a traditional Dickensian setting and is close to Smithfield market. A visit here is a step back in time that travellers lap up and modern comforts such as Egyptian linen make it a great place to rest and relax.

For a view that’s sure to increase the heartbeat of any anglophile book into The London Bridge Hotel [map]. This is the place for stunning views across the river Thames and London Bridge itself. You’ll also be in close proximity to all of the best tourist sights. The hotel itself is four-star and has a Malaysian Restaurant serving a range of Malaysian, Indian and Chinese authentic cuisine.

The charming London Elizabeth Hotel is such a peaceful place that it’s easy to forget it’s in such a central location. Overlooking Hyde Park the pretty London Elizabeth [map], offers superior accommodation in a privately-owned setting. This, of course, means that all needs are catered for and friendly staff are on hand to ensure you enjoy your stay. The Rose Garden Restaurant is where the head chef prepares a range of European cuisine infused with herbs from the very garden that the restaurant is named after.

If we can’t persuade you to choose the alternative to city living, there are plenty of views right in the heart of the action.

Those who are looking to be close to theatre land should check into The Covent Garden Hotel [map], Monmouth Street. With refined accommodation and wood-panelled interiors this five-star hotel is the place for rest and relaxation with a large dollop of luxury thrown in for good measure.
