Being one of the largest metropolises in the world, London has an array of hotel options to offer any kind of traveller. However, there are only a few hotels that stand tall and mighty in comparison to the rest. Rosewood London is not only one of them, but the crop of the best.
Located on Holborn High, not far away from London’s buzzing shopping heart, the hotel offers an experience unlike any other in the city. The website describes this perfectly upon arrival: “Guests arrive at Rosewood London through an archway that opens into a grand Edwardian courtyard, in a little oasis of tranquillity unique among London luxury hotels. It is the perfect start to a memorable stay in a timeless heritage hotel, set just steps from Covent Garden.”
The hotel is truly exceptional. Every detail is taken into account. The staff are eager to help and are probably the sharpest dressed hotel staff you will ever see. Once you enter the vicinity, the utmost of attentiveness is offered throughout you stay. This includes butlers, 24 hours services, amazing room services, friendly reception and round-the-clock upkeep of the facilities.
Plainly put, the rooms are to die for. Spacious, luxurious and tranquil – the rooms are a far stretch from the other hotels in London. The marble bathrooms are fitted with TV screens and every detail is taken into account, from space for luggage to the provision of two sinks for rooms catering to couples. The mini-bar is not mini. It has everything from beer, to English sweets to free organic vodka and gin.
The setting is that of British modern luxury. The seamless decor is streamlined to equip everything in the room without compromising the overall look of the suites.The lighting is carefully studied to fit all corners of the rooms and the panelling is custom-made for each unit. The aura of the interior design is grand, yet inviting. When the Rosewood London describes itself as “ultra-luxury” – it is definitely not kidding around. For short-term travellers to London, this is the closest to an English heritage setting one can get without leaving central London.
Other than the hotel’s exceptional facilities, the entrance is hugged by two of the best culinary venues in the area. Scarfes Bar offers a rustic English lounge setting with some of the best mix cocktails (and impeccable service) this side of Tottenham Court Road. As the website describes: “Gerald Scarfe, renowned British artist and caricaturist has lent his name and artistic vision to Scarfes Bar where his completed artwork has now been revealed. Gerald’s collection of amusing and conversation-provoking paintings, highlighting his best work, adorn the marble walls turning Scarfes Bar into a living canvas, described by Gerald as ‘my personal art gallery, where you can see my life on walls.’ Gerald’s collection of original and one-off paintings, now a permanent feature in the bar, add a unique twist and depict well-known historical and famous faces recounting the colourful history of the United Kingdom in Gerald’s witty and satirical way.”
While Holborn Dining Room, previously known as the East Banking Hall of Pearl Assurance, keeps the tradition of the hotel by offering delicious British dishes with a modern twist in what seems like an American style diner. Designed by Martin Brudnizki, the restaurant is divided into eight sections: Bar Snacks, Cold Counter, Hot Counter, Grill, English Kitchen, Sides, Sandwiches and Afters. It makes for a great starting point for a night out on the town!
Rosewood London is truly an experience in and of itself. It is one of those few high calibre hotels that gets accommodation from A to Z without being too pompous. A stay here will ensure a great trip! Highly recommended!

In the hustle and bustle of London, it’s hard to find a suitable hotel for your needs – especially a central one. That is not to say there aren’t many, but the expense and spaciousness is usually what worries the traveller in London. Not only are the hotels atrociously priced, but the sizes of the rooms are sometimes too tight and in some cases plain unliveable. However, one hotel has managed to create the perfect package with value, space, design and a central location all taken into consideration- One Aldwych.
Located in the center of London steps away from Covent Garden hugging the Theatre Land of the West End, One Aldwych is a hotel that serves the most in its platter in this side of the city. It is aptly situation in a fork in the streets of Aldwych, which makes its unique shape a sight to see for all London visitors and residents. Sitting in the the lavish lobby by itself is a London experience – it offers two large window views of two streets with double decker buses and black cabs passing at all times while you enjoy one of their signature cocktails (So well-mixed, it serves as the perfect launchpad for your night out!). The lobby is meticulously decorated with international art pieces and designer furniture.
Located on a loft overlooking the lobby (and these amazing views we talked about) is Indigo restaurant. A small restaurant with a wide selection of dishes, from succulent steals to smoked salmon. With its relaxed and informal atmosphere, the restaurant serves as the perfect place for an early dinner. In fact, given its proximity to Theatre Land, it is a very suitable place to have a meal before hitting the shows with friends. (Thank you Krizstian for the amazing service!)
The hotel also has a very cozy lounge on the ground floor that can serve as a great place to have meetings. Sectioned in accordance to needs, the place is carefully decorated to service guests with coffee table books peppering the tables and shelves. Paul Smith picked these books and has been known to frequent the place, since his offices are close. iPads for guests are available, just ask for them (another reason to travel light).
The rooms are spacious for a central London design hotel. While being in the middle of the metropolis, the rooms are insulated in a way that deters the outside sounds from coming in. The room is filled with all needed amenities, including a bathtub with a view and a small TV in the bathrooms (in case you don’t want to miss anything from the array of TV Channels available). The bed are remarkably comfortable with a great choice in linens for the sheets.
Everything aside, the real eye-grabber is the pool. Located in The Health Club is a 18 meter pool with some startlingly amazing features including soft mood lighting, chlorine-free water, a projecter and, last bust not least, an underwater music system. Yes, you can swim and listen to beautiful moody sounds without headphones and only when you dip in! This is a first for us here at Flight965.com and we sure took our time to examine this unique facility. Also, it is safe to mention that The Health Club is a full-option spa with some of the best masseurs in the city. A 60-minute sessions will ease out all the tension built up for being in a city like London. Plus, the gym is right there whenever you need it.
If you are going to London, One Aldwych is a must-visit. Even if you are not staying there, the facilities it encompasses make for a great day trip. The hotel is equipped with everything to make your stay in London fantastic. Also, don’t forget to try out the pool!
