Founded in 1974, Baglioni Hotels are around the globe. In London, you’ll find The Baglioni close to Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens and Harrods. Renowned for combining Italian glamour with classic London architecture, it has captured the true essence of Italy right here in the capital.
Arriving within the The Baglioni’s sumptuous styled lobby, my guests and I were greeted with a Ferrari (not the car sadly), a chilled sparkling wine.
We were then invited to view the private spa – each of its treatment rooms named after a rare gem and all designed with privacy and relaxation in mind and praised for having some of London’s very best massage table including a heated option.
Clubino at the hotel is the place for great events – a large area bursting with true character and glamourous décor. It pays homage to Italian style, proudly displaying unique wall art. Combining the beloved aspects of Hyde Park, the art work showcases rich, gold illustrations of lakes and trees. With a bar and spacious area available, Clubino holds lavish events enhanced by its own private entrance and with a license until the early hours where the bartender will serve fresh, cocktails until the early hours of the morning – an essential ingredient for sure.
We were then escorted to the courtyard, private and intimate, a perfect place to enjoy late summer evenings. Then onto the Kensington Suite Meeting Room – ideal if you are looking to mix business with pleasure.
We were then taken view the hotel suites. State of the art Nespresso machines and lavish portraits of Italian movie star, Sophia Loren, can be found in the Kensington Suite. Saluting the modern interior, it is both spacious and luxurious with stunning furnishings multiple bathrooms too.
Next stop, the bar where we sampled a selection of fine cheeses, carefully prepared bruschetta and a variety of Italian delicacies capturing the the taste and essence of Italian cuisine.
The stylish Baglioni Hotel oozes timeless Italian culture and style in the heart of London town. Ideal for an intimate dinner, parties and lavish gatherings as well as a great place to stay too.
