If you are looking for a hotel that is well situated for the attractions of Knightsbridge, you should consider the Draycott. Very quirky, with free champagne at 6 and hot chocolate later, in readiness for a good night's sleep.

This place is so nice, so good with people so friendly I do not know here to start. It is authentic with great styling (if you like classic), on a great location. We stayed in a Deluxe room but you could easily call it a junior suite. I have stayed in hotels that call rooms smaller than these junior suites....

Single Room...teeny tiny. View of a wall. Noise from generators. Was tempted to order breakfast to see where the waiter would put the tray. I asked to see another room on checking out which was a million miles better than a single. Would recommend a double rather than a single in order to appreciate the hotel fully. Staff fabulous. Cleanliness...

I stayed in November for 10 days at the Draycott. From the minute i arrived i felt at home. I loved the fact that the hotel is small & very personal. It makes such a difference when you can develop a relationship in a hotel. The Draycott has charm in abundance & is an old world style hotel with staff...

Draycott really is a special place. We consider it our London home. We come back at least once a year. They do everything well- the room, the service, the complementary champagne and hot chocolate, the formal tea. It is a pleasure!

A gorgeous hotel right in the heart of Chelsea. We felt like we were walking into a home rather then a hotel. Friendly staff and such a cosy environment. The room we stayed in was amazing - I would love that bedroom in my own home. Couldn't have wished for a better weekend away.

It is not a conventional London hotel, it's better if you like a personalised service. Attentive and discrete staff, the structure of the hotel is great, with a couple of communal rooms where you feel at home, actually probably better. I stayed in probably the smallest room of the hotel, single bed. But there was everything you need, clean and...

Having heard so many great things about The Draycott, I decided to choose this luxurious mansion for my short business trip to London. From the entrance and the warm welcome, all the way to the room, you are treated like Royalty and you're spoilt rotten! Unfortunately, my short stay and business obligations did not allow me to experience every corner...

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
