Tucked away in a historical Chelsea brownstone, this boutique retreat, just off Sloane Square, is one of those deliciously hidden gems, with access to The Roof Terrace at The Sloane. Part of the Sloane Club, this chic neighbourhood hotel and restaurant is a short walk from world-class galleries, shops, restaurants and bars. The 27 ensuite bedrooms are contemporary yet classic, spanning from Cosy (ideal for solo travellers) to Suite which even has a separate living room to unwind in after a day out in the city. Each one includes a super comfortable Hypnos bed, Nespresso machines and a small writing desk. The stylish Sloane Place Restaurant – a buzzy café by day, a classy yet unpretentious restaurant at night – offers contemporary British-Javanese menus from breakfast till late. Order the blueberry pancakes, bao buns or mouth-watering native lobster and tiger prawn burger. The wine and cocktail list is second to none, too, curated to compliment the menu and seasons. Afterwards, settle down for Sloane Sessions at the newly-refurbished Hideaway – an unforgettable evening of live music, cocktails and canapes every Thursday.
