Destination London: The Baglioni Hotel
August 17, 2006By: Guest Writer
Baglioni Hotel

By Alex Rose

The Baglioni is a very stylish, intimate, and sophisticated hotel that balances both luxe elegance and discreet personal service. And it's absolutely first-rate where it matters-- in accommodations and service. The hotel resides in a Victorian building in the heart of Kensington, with sweeping views of Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Gardens and Palace, and Hyde Park (which is close enough for a leisurely stroll), while some of west London's best-known shops and boutiques are only few moments away. The rooms are spacious, with welcoming hues, and for those amorous couples looking for an intimate weekend, the bedrooms are very comfortable and made for play. One nice touch is the lit candles in the bedroom and bathroom every night, compliments of the hotel. The bathrooms are decadently ornate with marble floors, elegant fixtures, and rich colors throughout. There are many complimentary "perks" available to guests such as high-speed internet (WiFi available in the lobby), flat-screen interactive plasma televisions, an expresso machine in each room, a large selection of on-demand music and movies available, and a personal butler for each floor. Unique services such as a baby-sitter and personal shopper are available to guests for a fee. Honorable mentions go to the spa for a full-range of health-and-beauty treatments, the Brunello restaurant for excellent Italian cuisine, and the swank private hotel bar, Boutique 60. Enjoy your stay!
