“The home you always wised for in London”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

What a find! Thank you to my fellow TA community for your recommendations. San Domenico House is what one wishes one had for a home in London. Just spent two nights at this lovely glorified B&B/luxury hotel.

The location is perfect, a stones throw from Kings Road, over looking Five Fields Restaurant (currently ranked as in the top five restaurants in London) and a 3 minute walk to Sloan Square and Sloan street tune station.

If you are looking for a hotel with all the usual amenities (multiple restaurants, gym, gift shop…etc.) this is not for you. If you've been to London many times and you are sick of the run of the mill hotels and are looking for a home in London then please give this exceptional hotel a try. It's as if you own a luxury flat in London in one of the best parts of the city. The service is wonderful, polite, professional and non obtrusive. The room (I stayed in room 304) was clean, comfortable and luxurious. Yes, there is no tea/coffee maker in the room but there are ample places just around the corner for one to go get ones cup in the morning.

I had breakfast one day and the quality of the fry up was excellent.

I will certainly go back the next time I'm in London and I will certainly recommend this jewel of a hotel to my friends.

Room Tip: Any room most likely will be a good room at this boutique hotel.

We just came back from a 5 days trip to london. This hotel was a great surprise. We had a junior suite. It was big, very nice and clean. Very comfortable big bed. Only small down side is the bar: not many choices for wine and too high prices. They should give more options. Other than that just perfect! We certainly be back!

I didn't mean to stay here! I had booked somewhere else but didn't like it and fortunately managed to get their last room here at the last minute!

What luck. This is a super place to stay, just off the Kings Road in Draycott Place. It is Italian owned with charming Italian staff and elegant decor. On a cold, wet London night a roaring fire and candles makes for a great welcome.

The gallery bedroom was large and comfortable with everything one could wish for. Good selection of toiletries in the bathroom. Only thing missing for me was a make-up mirror!

Unfortunately I did not get a chance to have breakfast but I'll be sure to rectify that on my next visit. There definitely will be one. What a great find.

Very conviently located on a side street between Sloane square & Kings Road perfect for visiting Chelsea area.
This hotel is owed by an Italian family and you could tell with all the nice little touches scattered around amongst the what would be a classic historic English building.
Not a great check in though, the receptionist, never stood up while going through the usual formalities,not even when we left her desk with the bell boy as a matter of coutesy.
The room was ready on time & was very nice, crisp bed linen,with turn down service & a Ferrero Roche on the pillow, niche.Wasn't cheap but ..in central London....in Chelsea???
I would revisit again we didn't have breakfast at San Domenico,but Tom Aikens Kitchen restaurant is near by,with celebrity & their security included

Room Tip: They are all good & roomy

This place is as close as it gets to a home in London. It is a top-class boutique hotel in an amazing location. Staff is very friendly and helpful. It has a very calm atmosphere. Interiors are in very well maintained and are decorated with antiques and beautiful fabrics.

SanDomenico is so special that it makes me happy to go back again and again.

We stayed here on our wedding night and loved it! The room was amazing and the staff was very friendly. The room was very spacious. The hotel had a real family feel to it, which is hard to find in central London.
