La Suite West




After an amazing weekend in London seeing The Rolling Stones a couple of weeks ago I wanted to share with you where we stayed. Since I rely on hotel reviews when I go stay somewhere I knew I had to write about this fabulous find.

We stayed in La Suite West, a minimalist, modern hotel designed by British designer Anouska Hempel.  The hotel takes inspiration from an Eastern aesthetic, with it's limited colour pallet, clean, sharp lines and dark corridors and rooms the hotel feels tranquil and chic. The fact that Jimmy Hendrix stayed in the old Hyde Park Towers Hotel for a while in the 60's in which time he wrote 'Stone Free' make the hotel that little bit cooler.

The location is fab for a London visit, it was brilliant for us as it was only a short walk from Hyde Park. Bayswater tube station is literally 30 seconds away, I actually walked past the hotel thinking it was further away! 
We stayed in an Inverness suite, which consisted of a small dining/kitchenette area, sofa, 4 poster bed and an impressive marble, under floor heated bathroom, it also looked out on to Inverness terrace and it's beautiful row of townhouses. 
The room was a great size for a weekend in London, enough room to move around or dance to some Rolling Stones songs on the ipod dock and comfy enough to relax on the sofa or the incredibly plush bed. I'd include photographs, but in all honesty what you see in the Hotel's own photos is what you get, which is definitely something that doesn't happen often when seeing a hotel in the flesh! We ordered wine on two occasions and I have to say, both times room service was the quickest I've ever experienced. The same went for when I requested an ironing board and milk from housekeeping, which was a nice pleasant change, in my experience room service is usually a lengthy wait!

I'm a self-confessed hotel snob, I like to stay somewhere beautiful, luxurious and clean, it's a guilty pleasure of mine and I often scour the internet for hours if not days looking to book somewhere. La Suite West was perfect, I loved every minute of my stay, and a particular plus was the complimentary chocolates on arrival, they were so incredibly tasty, I'd love to know where they came from!
If you're ever looking for somewhere new to stay in London I'd definitely recommend you to check this hotel out!
