Hotel review: A quirky British hotel – Myhotel Chelsea
It’s less than a month until the Chelsea Flower Show begins, and if you’re planning to visit London during this time you’ll be looking to stay somewhere close by. Let us introduce you to a quirky boutique hotel set right in the heart of fashionable Chelsea.
Adelto recently had the pleasure of staying at Myhotel Chelsea, a cosmopolitan oasis resembling a private country house – with a floral sofa and sleek aquarium in the lobby – the hotel oozes quirky British charm.
The stylish four-star hotel is located 500 meters from South Kensington tube station and is only a 15-minute stroll to the Royal Hospital where the Chelsea Flower Show is held. The hotel is also well positioned for shopping on the King’s Road or soaking up culture at some of London’s great attractions, such as the V&A, Natural History Museum and the Science Museum.
All of the 46-rooms at the luxury London hotel are vibrant and come with flat screen TVs equipped with DVD players and Freeview. The Victorian building mixes traditional English character with a contemporary style.
We were booked into a junior suite, which was a great size. The room came with a safe, well-stocked minibar and a colossal king size bed. The colour scheme was more on the feminine side – peach and pink hues with floral curtains.
Each guestroom at the hotel features complimentary Anyah eco-friendly toiletries and Wi-Fi. Our bathroom was a generous size for a London hotel. The power shower was fantastic and if you prefer a bath – there’s a bathtub too.
Fancy staying in something plusher than a standard room? The London hotel also offers two exclusive suites; ‘Geisha’ offers classical furniture, bright upholstery and an irresistible king size bed, whilst the Thai suite – inspired by eastern design features a luxury four-poster bed as its centrepiece. The space also includes its own kitchen area, walk-in wardrobe, steam room and hot tub.
Another lovely feature of the hotel is its airy conservatory, which opens into a bright white courtyard, and has been designed as a sanctuary for guests 24 hours a day. This room offers an Apple Mac with Internet access, comfortable sofas as well as a television and extensive DVD and book collection – if you fancy a night in with a book or DVD – there’s a plethora of options.
Within the hotel is family-owned restaurant Pellicano, which serves delicious Italian and Sardianian cuisine in a warm, friendly environment. The restaurant’s extensive wine list sees traditional Italian classics sit alongside newcomers to the Sardinian wine scene, perfectly complementing the dishes on the menu. We didn’t have dinner in the restaurant but did enjoy a healthy and delicious continental breakfast. There’s a great selection of hot and cold food. We highly recommend the skinny cappuccinos.
If you are planning a trip to London, the hotel’s ‘48 Hours in London’ package is worth looking into. The deal starts at £360 based on two sharing and includes: Two-night stay at the Chelsea hotel, continental breakfasts on mornings, lunch or dinner at the hotel on one of the stay days.
