The Wellesley is the first boutique hotel in London. Right in the heart of the city, this hotel with 36 rooms can offer an outstanding service in one of the most prestigious locations on Knightsbridge, overlooking The Royal Hyde Park.
This could be just another luxury hotel in London, but the entire atmosphere created by the stunning design was able to make our team fall in love at the first sight. Since the first step in, we get the feeling that we are in a different era.
Fox Linton Associates was the interior design company responsible for the project and they used the building’s decadent jazz musical legacy to create a luxury ambiance with a modern art deco interpretation. The building, created by the architect Lesley Green, was the former home of the iconic jazz, Pizza on the Park.
The doors of The Wellesley open to a glamorous hall in which you can feel the crazy 20’s vibe. Crystal chandeliers cover the ceiling of the whole space, illuminating a splendorous space full of exquisite architectural details. The doors, with geometrical patterns in gold, give access to some of the most characteristic rooms of the hotel: The Crystal Bar, the Oval Restaurant, and the Cigar Lounge.
Let’s start from the last one. The Wellesley provides the opportunity to see the UK’s largest cigar collection sold on a stick by stick basis, with a value around the £1.5 million. The Lounge, with a very masculine design, is the perfect place to enjoy a drink after a cigar on the private terrace. Another aspect that stands out in this boutique hotel is the UK’s largest bespoke humidor.

But before a cigar, it’s always important to enjoy a delicious meal. On the Oval Restaurant, you can taste delicious Italian food surrounded by the most exquisite and glamorous ambiance. The entire room is designed in white and soft pink with some gold details, which will provide you a feeling of luxury.
After dinner, nothing better than a visit to the Crystal bar, where you can enjoy incredible live jazz performances on Friday and Saturday nights.
The Wellesley was created to offer the total comfort for an entire evening without one ever having to leave the hotel – a home away from home.
On the boutique hotel, there are 14 one-bedroom suites named after famous personalities of the decade of 20. You can spend a night in Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, and Charlie Chaplin or even in the Churchill Suite!
During their stay, the guests can count with several services to make it as comfortable as possible. The Wellesley provides guests with a complimentary Rolls-Royce drop off service and complimentary Sky Movies.
