Guide to... 5 Star Hotels in London

London is known for its five star hotels as they have been second homes or even homes for some of the most revered celebrities, politicians, and artists for centuries. Hotels like The Ritz, The Dorchester, and The Savoy, are amongst the most famous due to their histories but London is constantly changing and there are new five star hotels that are competing for the same shine.

Our guide to five star hotels in London includes lots of useful information for you to choose a place to stay during your next visit to London.

Some of the best London hotels also boast some of the best restaurants in London so look out for our restaurant recommendations too.
