I've stayed at the Baglioni Hotel a number of times over the past few years and this review is well overdue. If you're looking for a quiet hotel which provides a touch of luxury and a little romance then look no further. Its only a short distance to Mayfair, Harvey Nicks and Harrods and both Heathrow and London City airports are only around 45 minutes drive outside the rush hour.
All the rooms that I've stayed in are sumptuously furnished and opulently decorated in deep purples and gold. There is a quality entertainment system and the bathrooms are quirky and well appointed. The butler service for pressing etc is fast and efficient but a little expensive. On this occasion I was upgraded to a Junior Suite which provides a small sitting area with sofa and desk.
The service all over the hotel is understated and flawless, in the bar and restaurant areas the staff are slick and professional and the food is excellent. In the evening they serve a very good selection of light snacks which are perfect if you plan to eat later but need a little something to nibble on. Breakfast is really superb with a good buffet and some a la carte options.
There is a covered terrace at the front of the hotel which is pleasant when the sun shines but at the moment can be just a little noisy as there is a major construction project going on nearby. Hyde Park is just across the road and is ideal for a walk to blow away the cobwebs. At the moment the Spa is undergoing a major refurbishment.
All in all, the Baglioni has become a regular 'home from home' for me in London but this comes at a price !!!
