This 10-bedroom residence is situated in the quiet neighbourhood of Pimlico. Distressed-wood surfaces are played off against gleaming appliances and there are green mohair armchairs for sitting in while enjoying a coffee. Every room has stylish touches and original art – even the smallest. Beneath the hotel is a New York-inspired cocktail bar with exposed brick walls, tin ceiling tiles, red leather bar stools and low lighting. The barman’s superb bespoke drinks come with a Prohibition-era story or insights about the properties of wormwood.
