The Ritz London

The epitome of old-world British glamour, this is our top pick of luxury stays in the capital. For experiencing aristocracy in a world-renowned setting, you won’t find better. However, if you’re not into extreme opulence and formal ambience, you’ll prefer elsewhere.

Stay at The Ritz London

Savour the sophistication of the Ritz, London-style, at an establishment pleasing guests for over a century. Indeed, every aspect of this place screams legendary, from seamless service and long-standing staff to Versailles-inspired dining and distinguished afternoon teas.Arise from your slumber in the signature Royal Suite, an extravagant abode spanning two levels. Cruise through the city’s vibrance in the hotel’s chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce. Come evening, sample cigars and then cocktails in the glitzy Rivoli Bar. Piano notes follow as you head to the Secret Garden, where candle-lit meals and summer magic are served.


The hotel enjoys a prime position in Piccadilly, overlooking Green Park. Expect to find the musicals of West End, high-end retail of Regent Street and bustle of Soho all a short stroll away. It really doesn’t get more central than this.


Comprising 136 rooms, including 23 suites, interiors feature royal furnishings in shades of peach, pink, yellow and blue. Sprinkles of gold leaf add a dose of dazzle, as do lavish bathrooms and traditional antiques. Higher floors promise the best park views.

Who is it for
