There are many 4-star hotels in London, but few as unique as the Grand Royale London Hyde Park. An elegant, late Edwardian townhouse on a smart Bayswater street, it’s an extravagant expression of its era, subtly offset with every contemporary comfort.
Moments from Hyde Park, this hotel near Bayswater station has history etched into its honey-hued exterior, the work of renowned French architect and London Ritz designer Charles Frédéric Mewès. Edward VII commissioned the building as a private residence for his mistress Lilly Langtry, and there’s still a romantic appeal to its ravishing interiors, replete with polished wood panelling, marble fireplaces and crystal chandeliers. A sweeping staircase ascends from the lobby and leather chesterfields grace the lounge, yet for all the grandeur there’s also an intimate feel to this historic Hyde Park hotel you’ll love.
