Hotel Description

There are all kinds of hotels in London, from hypermodern luxury towers to edgy hipster boutiques. But sometimes you’re in the mood for the classics — and for those times, nothing less than a Victorian-era townhouse in South Kensington will quite do. Well, as you may have gathered, if that’s what you’re after, you’re in luck, because that’s a description that suits the Bailey’s Hotel London to a tee.

Inside you’ll find it’s a classic that’s been subtly updated — there’s a bit of a contemporary sheen in these identifiably Victorian interiors, with curvaceous modern furniture and high-tech gadgetry sharing space with parquet floors and ornate architectural flourishes. The rooms are vintage-inspired without feeling old, and luxe without feeling excessively opulent — it’s a very accessible brand of South Kensington luxury.

And the neighborhood is key to the appeal. This is museum central, with the V&A, the Natural History Museum, and the Science Museum a short walk away. Hyde Park is a short distance to the north, and to the east, the shoppers’ nirvana that is the Brompton Road. For a crash course in classic London hospitality it would be easy to do a whole lot worse.
