The Arch Hotel
The Arch is located near Marble Arch, a five minute walk to Hyde Park, very close to bustling Oxford and Regent streets and the high fashion designer shops of Bond Street, as well as excellent restaurants and cafes. This gorgeous boutique hotel mixes British charm and Georgian architecture with modern facilities and a sleek decor. The hotel, comprised of seven townhouses, kept some of its buildings’ original features giving your stay a traditional local feel. There is an inviting in-house restaurant, a chic Champagne Lounge and an interesting Martini Library, all welcoming you for a toast to celebrate your stay. We loved the touches of hospitality provided by the amiable staff, such as take-away picnics or arranging horse riding in the park. The colorful rooms and suites, individually decorated in beautiful luxurious themes, are quite comfortable and relaxing. We particularly liked the distinctive modern wallpaper designs. The room sizes are compatible with what you will find at similar hotels in London: the Standard room is rather small and from the Superior type up you will enjoy more space, if needed. Should you feel like indulging, request the large Studio Suite, which has a lovely four-poster bed and a delightful private courtyard.
