Belgraves Hotel Review: Nestled in London’s affluent Belgravia neighborhood around the corner from Sloane Square, Belgraves offers an elegantly modern stay in a part of the city that’s worth exploring. The hotel features 85 rooms and a boldly unique architectural style engineered by EPR Architects, as well as clean and stylish interior design from acclaimed British designer Tara Bernerd. HIX Belgravia, chef Mark Hix’s dining room, showcases dishes inspired by the chef’s own travels, as well as specially commissioned works of art created by prominent British artists. Also on-site are a fitness center and a cozy library bar where guests can enjoy cocktails or select a book from one of the crowded shelves. There is a wide selection of room and suite varieties, and each features an LCD flat-screen TV, iHome docking station, 400-thread-count SFERRA linens and all-marble bathrooms stocked with Penhaligon’s amenities. Visitors who require the utmost in luxury can reserve the penthouse, a 750-square-foot, two-bedroom/two-bathroom suite boasting an oversized outdoor terrace, a working fireplace, a wet bar and mosaic bathroom floors. Because of its exclusive location near many culturally significant landmarks, including the Apsley House, the Institute of Contemporary Arts and the Royal Academy of Arts, this hotel serves as an ideal home base for travelers hoping to take in London’s sophisticated art scene.
