    Everything you need to know about The Hari Hotel…

    Why go?

    Tucked away in London’s opulent Belgravia lies the 5* luxury of The Hari Hotel. Whether you’re looking for somewhere quiet to stay in the middle of the big city, or you’re a Londoner looking for a romantic Valentine’s Day break, it’s the perfect tranquil place to lay your head in what is otherwise a bustling, busy metropolis.

    After a welcome drink, you’re invited to leave London – and any stresses – at the door. Head up to your room and enjoy the quiet as you settle down and look out at the skyline sitting by the large bay window. When you’re ready to venture out, grab your handy – a smartphone found in your room which is loaded with free data, city guides and local offers for attractions – and make the most of what the capital has to offer. 

    If you’d rather not leave the comfort of The Hari Hotel, head to the gorgeous terrace bar for a pre-dinner tipple under the stars.

    The vibe

    If you’re looking for luxury, this is the place for you. From the moment you walk into The Hari Hotel you’ll feel worlds away from the busy streets of London. However, it’s just a stones throw away from Harrods, as well as the usual designer haunts – think Armani, Fendi and Dior. It’s also located within walking distance of some of London’s most famous buildings and landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park and The Royal Albert Hall to name a few.

    You won’t want to leave your room, but when you do you’ll find a beautiful bar and garden terrace for a cosy and romantic drink, an Italian restaurant that oozes vintage glamour and a 24-hour health and fitness centre including a fully equipped gym so that you can squeeze in a workout whenever you fancy, or book that in-room spa treatment from the comfort of your bed.

    The rooms

    The Hari Hotel boasts 85 designer bedrooms, including 14 luxury suites. We recommend staying in a Studio King Suite, a large fully-equipped room with a king sized bed, a walk-in rainfall shower and two large windows offering unparalleled views of London. It has the usual mod cons – free WiFi, a Nespresso coffee machine and Noble Isle toiletries – so what makes it stand out?

    The biggest selling point has to be the bay window marble bath tub overlooking the city. Enjoy a glass of Champagne while you soak up the sights from the comfort of a bubble bath before throwing on your complimentary fluffy robe and slippers.

    The Hari Hotel restaurant

    A trip to Il Pampero, the in-house restaurant, is essential during your stay at The Hari Hotel. Italian cooking in a sophisticated setting, it offers fresh regional ingredients for a taste of southern Italy. Tuck in to homemade pasta and marvel at the selection of vintage wines.

    When it comes to breakfast, your options include a continental buffet offering a selection of baked pastries, natural yoghurt, fruit, cold cuts and cheese. If you prefer your first meal of the day to be hot, treat yourself to fluffy vanilla pancakes or traditional eggs royale washed down with a healthy smoothie. Not fussed about sitting in the chic restaurant? Room service is always an option…
