Review: Sloane Square Hotel


Sloane Square Hotel is a timeless classic for the sophisticated traveller. We visited the hotel one Friday evening for a relaxing weekend and were pleasantly greeted at the quiet and understated reception away from the hustle and bustle of Kings Road.

We were then shown up to our room with a pleasant view of Chelsea’s Holy Trinity Church. The room was tidy in presentation with a pleasant lounge area as well as a desk to work from.  The décor of the room a muted palette with a beautiful mahogany dresser and side table.

Location, location…

The location of the Sloane Square Hotel in the heart of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is paramount. Perfect for tourists or out of towners visiting for the weekend or a week’s stay. Located near Sloane St home to the world’s most elite and exclusive designer stores from Valentino to Harrods. We enjoyed idling the day by, window shopping and admiring the dazzling collections. Kings Road is also a spectacle and an enjoyable stroll will take you to Duke of York Square. Pavilion road has recently re opened as a pedestrianised road with some fantastically convenient amenities such as Granger & Co for fresh coffees and pastries such as mini croissants.

For those looking for an evening experience Sloane Square Hotel is located above popular Chelsea nightspot Tonteria which offers Mexican themed fun for revellers every Monday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday night. Guests can also enjoy tapas, calamari & nachos before the entertainment of the night begins, from exotic dancers to fire girls. There is also The Botanist located next door for a more refined cocktail experience.

One can relax in the pleasant lounge overlooking Sloane square. The staff pour cups of English breakfast tea or coffee depending on your preference. The hotel has played host to celebrities including The Beatles while it was called The Royal Court, when Chelsea in the 1960s was the go to place in London for artists or musicians. For tourists visiting Sloane Square station can quickly take them to Oxford Circus and I imagine it is the perfect place to stay for international visitors looking to sightsee around London.

We found the hotel bursting with classic English charm, with small touches such as a small teddy on each bed and a collection of biscuits presented at each bedside. The bathrooms although small offer a collection of Elemis toiletries and a small hand wrapped soap, which is great for the discerning visitor, wishing to have a shower or bath after a long day.

Overall, we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and shall certainly be visiting again!
