“One of London's best new hotels.”
Reviewed 2 December 2013 via mobile

I rarely give 5 stars but this new hotel deserves it and more. Absolutely faultless a refreshing change after a very average stay at the ME hotel the night before. Service and staff wonderful, peaceful room, comfortable bed, a bathroom with a bath,in fact everything you could possibly want. The Rosewood may well become my hotel of choice when visiting London.

Stayed December 2013, travelled as a couple

It is rare to find a great Bar in London like the one at the Scarface at Rosewood. It is also rare nowadays to find such professional , knowledgeable & charming Barman like Giovanni and his staff in one of the best Hotel in London, superb cocktails & attentive service.

The refurbishments at this hotel are truly spectacular. I work in the local area and have visited twice so far and would definitely return. This has that right mix of the old with the new and that certain je ne sais quoi.

I firstly visited on a week night. I had taken a cousin over for pre dinner drinks. It was busy. The bar area has the feel of an old English home with shelves of books and comfy chairs. They have cleverly designed it that you feel quite cosy even though the room is huge. The bar manager Giovanni has a fantastic team. He kept coming back to check on my cousin and me, making sure we were ok. The cocktails are something out of this world. We had four signature cocktails and they were all amazing- one was pink and came in a tall champagne glass, one came in a teapot with an ice ball, one was green came in a very tall glass and one had some edible flowers. I have travelled the world and visited bars all over but this place is special. They did not serve small measures. My cousin said we should return. Next time we are bringing all our cousins who live in London for a little reunion. The plans are already in place.

My second visit was for a breakfast meeting yesterday with an old friend who had flown in for a Thanksgiving break. We had beverages and fruit which was cut up beautifully and very fresh. Every member of staff we walked past greeted us. They were extremely attentive over breakfast. I showed my friend the bar area which only opens at 12. we peeked through the windows and she vowed she would take her boyfriend there and as I write this review, they are having drinks in the bar. She said they may stay at the Rosewood on their next visit.
Do go and take a look at the budgies in the cage. They are so beautiful they almost look unreal.

Holborn is very central. The area has a collection of museums-its called the Museum Mile. St Pauls, Covent Garden, Theatreland, Chinatown and the shops at Oxford Street and Regents Street are all a walk away. If you don't fancy walking, take the tube or the bus.

If you really want to impress someone special take them to the Rosewood in London.
As I said in the title, I would like to keep this place a secret but they really do deserve to do very well. I expect to see them creep up the trip advisor list.

We went for dinner there (we weren't staying there) and were speechless looking at the absolutely beautiful restoration and design of the hotel renovation. The public areas we went through were amazing. Incredibly warm and stylist. Their main dining room isn't ready quite yet and we ate in the main lounge. Very nice food in a wonderful ambience. We had a look at the bar too. It's grand, warm and welcoming all at the same time. The service was warm, welcoming and attentive. I can't wait to go back again.

I have stayed in several hotels in London, but without a doubt, my new favorite is the Rosewood Hotel. Wow!....best describes my experience. From the moment I checked in to the second I left, it was fabulous. I would have stayed a month if I could have. Service was incredible and the renovations to the entire hotel were beautiful...truly an excellent property. Can't wait to go back.

Stayed at the Rosewood fr a weekend stay from New York. The rooms were gorgeous and well designed. The bath tub was huge and helped me fight my jetlag. The bar was cozy and the living room was great to meet my friends. The gym was also great!

I've stayed at the Chauncery Court Hotel 4-5 times over the past two years (which was what the Rosewood was called before the renovation) and just stayed in the newly renovated Rosewood for 9 days. While I loved the hotel before, I ADORE the hotel now. They've taken a great hotel to an entirely new level, from the decor, to the food, to the bar, to the gym, to the staff. Everything has been thought of, especially for the business traveler--a rarity in London. My entire team (who stayed as well) was simply blown away. Thank you Michael, Isabella, Jose, Luke, Christof and the entire team--we will most definitely see you again soon!
