A high-end, newly refurbished boutique find in London’s South Kensington, including breakfast

London addresses don’t come much smarter than 54 Queen's Gate, a recently refurbished boutique gem enviably located in the heart of South Kensington. There have been many illustrious past residents of this upscale neighbourhood, with famous figures reflected in the bedroom design of this Grade II-listed Edwardian property. These include literary greats such as Henry James, Oscar Wilde and George Eliot, as well as suffragette Sylvia Pankhurst and film director Alfred Hitchcock.

Whichever room you stay in you’ll find it a restful and secluded bolthole that belies the fact that London’s city bustle is right around the corner. Standard rooms are snug and cosy, while Deluxe rooms offer a little more space, high ceilings and a minibar. All come with bespoke designer wallpaper, textured fabrics and hand-picked accessories.


  • The prime location in the heart of London’s South Kensington
  • The impeccable interior design, which pays homage to local famous figures
  • That the newly transformed rooms received a facelift in 2018
