Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park

66 Knightsbridge, London, SW1X 7LA, England

Built in 1880, the Mandarin Oriental welcomes you with one of the most exuberantly Victorian facades in town, then fast-forwards you to high-trend modern London, thanks to striking and luxurious guest rooms filled with high-tech gadgets. Legendary British chef and "food alchemist" Heston Blumenthal oversees the restaurant, or there's New York–based Daniel Boulud's French brasserie, Bar Boulud. There's a butler on every floor, should you, for example, need assistance with the pillow menu (yes, really). For the 99% of us who can't afford to stay here, cocktails in the Mandarin Bar offers a glamorous (and surprisingly relaxed) taste of London high society.

PROS

  • great shopping at your doorstep
  • amazing views of Hyde Park
  • excellent service

CONS

  • nothing comes cheap
