Molly from A Hotel Life:
“It might be strange to choose a French hotel boasting mid-century Italian design in such a quintessentially British neighbourhood, but the new Henrietta Hotel won us over with its stylish charm. Tucked away in two Covent Garden townhouses, the 18-room hotel is a perfectly intimate respite. But with impeccable Art Deco designs (patterned carpets, navy and pastel pink walls, brass accents), a Michelin starred chef, and expertly crafted cocktails, it’s never boring.”

Casey from Land of Marvels:
“I love London and at any time of the year, it’s a vibrant, bustling city with so much to see and do. It’s taken me quite a few trips and quite a few hotels to find my absolute favorite, but the first time I stayed at The Ampersand in South Kensington, I knew it was the one. From the incredible design to the amazing location (right across the street from the South Kensington Tube Station), I fell in love with The Ampersand and it has become my go-to spot in London!”
