Knightsbridge Hotel – Knightsbridge, SW3
London

Tim and Kit Kemp, owners of Firmdale Hotels, have the knack of creating places to stay that not only look fabulous but are also easy-going and smoothly run. Knightsbridge Hotel is no exception, an imposing house in a quiet cul-de- sac and the ideal canvas for their skills. Kit has designed the interior with typical panache, using vivid colours, specially-designed fabrics, original British art and statement furniture. There are two public rooms downstairs, the drawing room and library, each with a working fireplace. A fireside tea is a winter treat. The 44 bedrooms and suites upstairs are all as fresh and lovely to look at as to sleep in, with thoughtful extras such as iPod docking stations. For a special occasion, book the stunning open-plan Knightsbridge Suite, with its triptych of floor-length windows. No restaurant, but there’s 24-hour room service.
