Having recently opened as a boutique hotel, the 38-bedroom Ashburn Hotel London really is one of the city's most modern properties, with its grand, white 19th century façade, its elegant drawing room and its stylish bedrooms making it worthy of its 4 star rating. The owners of the hotel believe that the key to an enjoyable stay is in the details, which is why they serve their guests' tea in extra large teacups and leave different turndown gifts on the pillows each night.
The rooms at the hotel are available in Queen Double, Superior Double, King Double and Deluxe sizes, all of which are fairly spacious, making the hotel fit for a variety of parties. The furnishings and decor are stylish and contemporary, which means that they are right at home in the prestigious borough of Kensington. The hotel is located within walking distance of Hyde Park and Kensington Palace and Gardens, whilst sights such as Buckingham Palace, the City of Westminster and Covent Garden are just short journeys away on the tube. The nearest tube station is Gloucester Road, just a few minutes' walk around the corner and serviced by the Circle, District and Piccadilly Lines, providing convenient access to the rest of the city.
Guests will find endless dining venues surrounding the hotel but the hotel does serve its own food all day, either through its room service or the drawing room. There is also a breakfast room and the drawing room employs its own professional bartender to prepare a selection of exotic cocktails for you. Complimentary WiFi is available throughout the hotel.
