An elegant and tasteful property in the heart of South Kensington.
The Ashburn Hotel is hidden down Ashburn Gardens, a side street just off Gloucester Road and minutes' walking distance from top shopping, restaurants and museums. This small property brought to life in 2007 by Epoque Hotels has 38 tastefully-designed rooms (doubles and spacious deluxe accommodations) that blend cozy comfort with modern amenities, including Gilchrist & Soames toiletries. Several of the hotel's services truly go above the call of duty, including the complimentary evening glass of Champagne served in the downstairs lounge with its polished parquet floor. Given the mood here, you'll want to stay and mingle with guests on one of the plush purple sofas or at an intimate table. If one glass of bubbly is not enough, don't worry; the bar stays open 24 hours. A European-style continental breakfast spread (the hotel is one of the only in London with oversized tea cups) is also included the price, as is Wi-Fi access throughout the property. Look for a different treat left bedside each night; it might be a package of violetes or perhaps some special bath salts. The extra care speaks volumes for the hotel group, which understands that the smallest detail influences the overall guest experience.
