London remains one of the most fashionable and cosmopolitan cities in the world. It draws tourists from the four corners of the world due to its historic trade links and buildings. Yet, apart from the stunning Berkeley hotel, there is so much to offer in this city. From historic buildings, museums, and galleries, to fine dining, shopping, and beautiful parks. And that is before we consider the worldwide draw of the Royal Family.
The property is in the fashionable and well-heeled district of Knightsbridge, next to the opulent Belgravia. The award-winning The Berkeley hotel has been inviting and delighting guests into its domain for over 120 years. It is truly a winning combination of modern luxury and convenient location.
Moreover, convenient access to the city's extensive and well-connected public transport system provides the perfect base from which to explore everything London offers. It is even a base for wider exploration of England and Britain.
Berkeley started as a coffee house over 300 years ago. It then transformed into a regular favorite with a discerning roster of international clients and guests. The property overlooks Hyde Park and is within easy reach of the famous Harrods and other high-quality retail outlets.
Tradition and service are at the forefront of what The Berkeley provides. Beginning with that touch of London class, a doorman will welcome you on arrival. There are also top-class service and professional waiters, and other staff throughout the hotel.
Facilities generally are everything that you would expect from a top-quality city center hotel. Your stay begins with the impressive lobby. It's a reminder of this luxury hotel's traditional and opulent nature and the experienced and skilled concierge services provided to all.
Additionally, an impressive range of dining options is available at The Berkeley. It starts with two top-quality restaurants with one Michelin starred, a spa on the seventh floor, and other family-friendly options. These include goody bags for young guests and even a children's concierge and teddy bears. Furthermore, services for disabled guests are top-notch. The hotel staff is also experienced in dealing with a wide range of disability issues for guests.
Ranging from the first to the seventh floor, the various guest rooms and suites, 190 in all, which The Berkeley provides, ensure a comfortable and luxurious stay. There is awe everywhere, from the Italian marble bathrooms to the carefully-created art and the combination of modern and classical design.
The superior king and queen rooms are recommended to view the historic Hyde Park without a balcony. However, balconies are available with balcony king rooms, which also offer an extensive view of London's skyline.
The available suites, ranging from the outstanding Knightsbridge Suite to the Opus, Chelsea, Crescent Pavilion, and Grand Pavilion Suites, are all stunning. Well-known interior designers such as Andre Fu & Robert Angell are the designers. Moreover, each has its own ambiance. The suites are also extensive and very much aimed at the well-heeled and discerning visitor to London.
The highlight of the restaurants at The Berkeley is no doubt MARCUS. It is named after Marcus Wareing, a two-Michelin-starred chef. A variety of multi-course tasting menus are available, which offer a range of modern European cuisine options befitting a cosmopolitan city.
Outstanding afternoon tea is also available from Pret-a-Portea, an award-winning location. Also within the hotel is the Blue Bar. This is a must-visit spot for enjoying a wide range of wines, spirits, and cocktails.
Additionally, at the back of the hotel is The Berkeley Bar & Terrace. This snug -waiting-to-be-discovered treat has one of, if not the most, secret terraces in London. The Robert Angell-designed Collins Room and the innovative Berkeley Beach Huts with their alfresco vibe round off the range of dining and drinking options that The Berkeley provides.
As this is a global city, other quality dining options are available within a few minutes walk from the resort. Likewise, the excellent staff can always advise of available local options for eating and drinking.
The impressive Bamford Wellness Spa on the top floor provides an outstanding view of the adjacent Hyde Park from the swimming pool. A hidden garden further adds to the exclusive ambiance. A range of treatments are also available, and the hotel website lists a range of special events and classes that are put on during the year.
With such a demanding and exclusive clientele, it is no surprise that The Berkeley l boasts a quality fitness center. Here, you can improve your fitness and health and hone that body or unwind at the end of a day of enjoying the sights of London. Moreover, the gym on the ground floor includes a range of electronic cardiovascular machines and free weights.
There are also variable resistance machines and personal TV and music systems to keep you occupied as you train. One-to-one personal training sessions are also available for those looking for that extra fitness boost or a personalized plan. Besides, complimentary fruit juice and water are available whilst training.
Unsurprisingly, The Berkeley provides several function rooms and event spaces ideal for a wedding, christening, or business meeting. So whether your wedding or christening is small or grand, a team of professionals can help you plan your special day.
For cocktail receptions to catwalk shows or any event that you could imagine, this striking city center location is guaranteed to provide the perfect spot for your event, launch, or announcement.
It has four main event spaces – the ballroom, Belgravia Room, Wilton Room, and Knightsbridge Room available for any event or meeting.
The Berkeley hotel has a combination of city center convenience, opulence, and tradition that comes with its longevity. This resort is a perfect hub for a London stay from the quality of the rooms, services, and dining.
