Location, location, location. Steps away from Hyde Park, Harrods and trendy Sloane Street, the five star Jumeirah Carlton Tower is an elegant hideaway in Knightsbridge that is fit for a modern day princess. It’s the first hotel that sprang to mind when I consulted the gorgeous UAE-based fashion designer and social media star Tamara Al Gabbani about her favourite hotel in London. Like her, the Jumeirah Carlton Tower is all about luxury, class and warmth.
That park view terrace really steals hearts. It’s one of the reasons Tamara loves this city hotel.
You can get the same view from your bedroom window if you book early enough to nab a park view room. The interiors are all cream and brown leather – the perfect backdrop to the greenery ahead.
Even the bathrooms show beautiful attention to detail. Marble, marble everywhere!
Yes, yes, of course a fantastic hotel like this would have an all star restaurant like the infamous Rib Room, where you will have the best steak of your life (don’t forget to order a side of the creamiest mashed potatoes ever). It’s the afternoon tea at Chinoiserie that you need to make sure not to miss. It’s a girly-girl’s dream come true.
From a rooftop indoor pool to well trained therapists, the Peak Health Spa is very popular with locals and tourists alike. You’ll even enjoy it if you do nothing but sit poolside with a stack of magazines while it drizzles outside.
