Whether your looking for a comfortable place to stay after a meal at Marcus Wareing’s two Michelin star restaurant below, or a room to unwrap the spoils of a days shopping in the likes of Harrods and Harvey Nichols, the Berkeley is the place to stay.
The Berkeley name and brand itself goes back over 100 years however, the current incarnation of the hotel dates back to only 1972 when the hotel moved from its old location on Berkeley Street to its present Knightsbridge location.
The result is a hotel with all the history and tradition of a London five star hotel, but accommodating guests in a building purposely made for the job.
Rooms at the Berkeley emphasis chic artistic style and open airy space, with an emphasis on the incorporation of selected artwork and highly artistic textiles each individually selected to fit the specific room. Bathrooms in themselves are also a work of art, incorporating Italian marble tops and walls for the perfect en suite experience.
If booking a standard room, there are two classes available in a number of options, superior and deluxe. The best value option may be one of the “balcony king” rooms, which comes with its own private balcony or terrace, perfect for breakfast or afternoon tea with views out over the city.
Whichever grade of room you decide upon, all rooms are equipped with the latest technology including Sky TV, DVD and CD player as well as free internet access via the hotels WIFI system. As one would expect rooms also have the usual creature comforts including a mini-bar, branded toiletries, bathrobes and slippers.
The Berkeley Hotel London has a reputation for the good times with celebrities such as Madonna and Leonardo di Caprio as it does for the standard of its rooms. If the high life is more your thing, why not try the hotels very own roof top pool and health spa facilities?
Another key feature of the hotel is the two Michelin stared restaurant “Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley.” The restaurant serves modern European cooking with an emphasis upon seasonal produce. The restaurant is particularly helpful in catering for those with special dietary requirements if advanced notice is given.
If modern French is more for you, then try the other legendry restaurant at the hotel, “Koffmann’s” hosted by classic French chef Pierre Koffmann. The restaurant serves both formal dinners and lighter bites thought the day.
So whether its celebrity associations, spa treatments or fine dinning, this really is a five star hotel that has it all.
