The splendour of
the Royal Albert Hall

As one of the most iconic buildings in London, the Royal Albert Hall is a must on most to-do lists.

 Right in the heart of Kensington, it is just a short walk away from our hotel doors, so attending one of it's many events couldn't be easier.

Whether you wish to dine in one of our award-winning restaurants before the show, or rest your head in one of our luxurious guest bedrooms after an enchanting performance, rest assured your time with us will be stress-free.

Hosting more than 350 events every year, you can see everything from award ceremonies to rock concerts and, of course, the classical music it's so famous for. Even if you don't make it to an event, the building itself is well worth the trip. It was designed to replicate the incredible amphitheatres of Rome, which, along with its lavish interior, makes it one of London's most well-loved buildings.

"Great Hotel"

"This is the best hotel we have stayed in in London. Might be more expensive but the quality makes the cost worthwhile.The restaurants are great and the service is exceptional. It's very near to the Royal Albert Hall, and High Street Kensington tube station so it is very convenient for whatever you wish to do".
