Last week we stayed for a long weekend in the British capital London. For me, this city is always worth a visit, whether for shopping, for cultural or culinary experiences. If you ask me, there is always something new to discover in London. And I had the chance to stay at the beautiful boutique hotel The Draycott in London.
The unique 5 star hotel is located in Chelsea London. Surrounded by a well-kept London-style neighborhood. The location is truly unique – as well as the house itself in the typical Brick look, the houses were built around 1890, the conversion to The Draycott Hotel began in 1995. Today the Draycott Hotel has 35 individually decorated rooms. Each is decorated with Edwardian antiques as a tribute to the theater. In each room there is something reminiscent of bygone times, be it a photo or a biography.
Already in the entrance, The Draycott Hotel shines with traditional English and luxurious chic. The staff is extremely courteous and welcomed us immediately and welcomed. Since we arrived a bit early in the hotel, we stayed in the so-called drawing room next to the fireplace.
Then I was allowed to make myself comfortable in the Ashcroft Suite. At The Draycott Hotel, there are no room numbers, but room names, and each room has its own story as mentioned before. The Ashcroft Suite offers a wonderful view of the idyllic and private garden. One of my personal highlights, however, was the four-poster bed – it even reminded me of my visit to Versailles two years ago. And believe me, it does not just look royal, to sleep in it is royal too.
My absolute highlight, however, was the fireplace, it gives the room an incomparable coziness. Anyway, we ended the evening after a strenuous shopping day in the city center there.
Of course, I did not mind taking my daily beauty rituals – even on my weekend trip. The bathroom is modern and well equipped. Quickly refreshed the lipstick in the foyer and voilà – ready for the toast champagne at 18 o’clock in the drawing room. Cheers! Every day, guests are served a glass of champagne with snacks.
Am nächsten Morgen gab es noch ein ausgiebiges Frühstück für einen guten Start in den Tag. Dabei durfte frisch gepresster Orangensaft und ein typisch englischer Breakfast Tea natürlich nicht fehlen.
Before we left, we relaxed a bit in the library – which is just beautifully designed and not just for reading and chatting very inviting. So if you are looking for a beautiful, oldfashioned and unique hotel, I highly recommend The Draycott London.
