Why we choose The Berkeley

Where power brokers go to see but not be seen

  • Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley is a 2-star Michelin restaurant
  • Berkeley’s Fashion Trunk lets you borrow luxe accessories
  • The rooftop pool has a retractable roof to foil London’s unpredictable weather

The Berkeley is a hip choice for serious luxury seekers—less staid than traditionally posh London hotels but with all the personal attention you would expect at this (sky-high) price point. Their concierge and limo services exemplify this contemporary-meets-opulent approach. The impressive concierge team knows the hottest spots for everything from shopping to sightseeing, and they’ll make sure you get there in style, thanks to a fleet of Mercedes, Bentleys and Rolls-Royces.

With panoramic Hyde Park views and expansive outdoor terraces, it doesn’t get much better than the Park Suite, Grosvenor Conservatory, Wellington Conservatory and Pavilion Conservatory.

In addition to a large range of room options, the Berkeley is also known for its dining. There are three award-winning restaurants—Caramel Room, Koffmann’s and Gascon bistro—as well as the popular Blue Bar. Complete your stay with the seventh floor Health & Spa and a fully equipped gym.

Where is it and what's nearby

A prime location in London’s distinguished Knightsbridge neighborhood, with shopping and Hyde Park right outside the door

  • The National Portrait Gallery contains the most extensive collection of famous and historically important portraits in the world
  • Ready for a real British pub experience? Grenadier Pub in Belgravia serves up a side order of history with your pint
  • Cork Street galleries form a vibrant Mayfair art center with an extensive lineup of boutiques exhibiting some of London’s top talent

As far as desirable areas of the city go, the Berkeley’s got it made. It has a plum Knightsbridge address across from Hyde Park, occupying a quiet corner that’s nonetheless in the heart of it all. You’re within walking distance of exclusive shopping, the phenomenal museums of Exhibition Road, rowing in Hyde Park, Sotheby’s Auction House and much more—with the West End theatre district a short cab ride away.

How to enjoy London

From the fine art galleries of Mayfair and St James  (bring your wallet, this art is for sale) to the elegant terraces surrounding Regent’s Park, sophisticated London abounds. For an edgier side to the city, head to Soho, for the excellent restaurants

  • Explore Shepherd Market, a tiny backstreet square where London’s glitterati of Royals and A-listers go to club and dine
  • To see London from the highest vantage point, take the express lift (no elevators in these parts) to the newly opened observation platform on The Shard
  • Upmarket shopping can be found on Bond Street, South Molton Street and Savile Row. For one-offs and independents, explore the boutiques of King’s Road. Borough Market is perfect to explore stalls featuring local produce, and don’t forget the antique shops on Portobello Road.

Nowhere best captures the understated glamour, impeccable manners and intriguing idiosyncrasies of the British upper classes than the streets around Mayfair. To get up close and personal, however, you have to join in the traditions. Tea at The Ritz or Claridges is a must. (It’s even listed as a proper meal alongside breakfast, lunch and dinner on their menus). Don’t forget an appointment with your man in Jermyn Street (for exquisitely tailored shirts and suits).

For more quintessentially English experiences venture away from the central hub of Mayfair. South of the river there’s Wimbledon. Outside of the tournament, visit the tennis club. It has a museum and drips wealth. The boutiques and cafes of Wimbledon Village are worth an afternoon too. Finally, don’t forget the Queen. It would be rude not to stop by if you are in town. Buckingham Palace does tours. A tourist honeypot, but you can book exclusive tours of the State Rooms.

  • A word from the hotel

    When dining in the Caramel Room, try something from our recently launched British Menu: a crispy Dorset crab cake for a starter and a devilled Norfolk free-range chicken supreme for the main course.
