In a central neighborhood where hotels veer from wildly overpriced at one extreme to grimy boltholes at the other, the Lime Tree gets the boutique style just about right—and at a surprisingly reasonable cost for the neighborhood. Gracious hosts, Matt and Charlotte, offer comfortable, contemporary rooms and delicious cooked breakfasts that set you up nicely for the day. The simple breakfast room backs on to a sweet little garden. Bedrooms are simple and elegant, with muted tones of taupe and cream; many have views over the London-in-the-movies Georgian street outside. Thoughtful extra touches include a guest computer and a guidebook library.
