11 Cagodan Gardens Hotel ★★★
Of all London's boutique inns, this Chelsea hotel succeeds the best at leaving behind the aura of impersonal hotel to create instead a cozy private home feel—with discreet hotel comforts—in a building from the 1800s
There's no sign, lobby, or reception; you just ring the bell and a butler answers the door. Victorian antiques and artwork abound, and the bathrooms have been redone in marble.
Book a choice room overlooking the private garden, or the enormous suite no. 35 taking up a whole side of the building with a massive four-poster king and a spacious bona-fide living room with a grandfather clock, oil paintings, and a working fireplace.
There's a stone-floored breakfast room, a small gym and sauna, and you can treat yourselves to in-room massages. Concierge and room service are available 24 hours.
Finding this place is tricky—there are four "Cadogan Gardens" streets that all intersect. See the directions under "Details."Book it
