If you prefer small hotels bursting with character when you’re away from home, then book a room at the San Domenico House for your next city break to London. It doesn’t even matter which room you choose, because all 17 guest rooms at this small city hotel boast a great mix of English charm and Italian sophistication! You won’t find a cozier lobby to welcome you to London than the one here. And throughout your stay, the very friendly yet at the same time professional team of staff really bring the atmosphere of the hotel to life. This small London hotel is owned by an Italian lady and all of her staff are Italian too, which adds a wonderful Mediterranean touch to your stay.
5 star hotel: Nostalgia & exclusivity
It might be small, and this is actually one of its main selling points, but the San Domenico House is still a 5 star hotel that can compete with the big hitters. Its homely feel sets it apart from those more modern city hotels with a sober atmosphere. At the same time, a real feel of exclusivity dominates, supported by the well-trained and very friendly service team. But even when it comes to the more practical things, the hotel offers luxury down to the smallest of details - for example, in the bathroom you’ll find Molton Brown toiletries, complimentary bottled water is always provided, and room service is available around the clock.
Boutique hotel: Family atmosphere & individual design
A great sense of style with plush antique furniture and gorgeous patterned wallpaper creates a wonderfully intimate feel at the San Domenico House. The style is a mix of old English and Italian influences and runs through all the rooms, even though each one has its own design. Some of the most beautiful rooms are the Deluxe Room 404 with small private terrace and the Gallery Suite which is furnished all in red and has a regal four-poster bed.
Food & drink: Breakfast à la carte & cocktails by the fireplace
The San Domenico House is an exclusive Bed & Breakfast. In the morning guests are served a really delicious à la carte breakfast in the very cozy dining room. Tip: Ask if there’s space available for you to enjoy breakfast on the small roof terrace. The hotel does not have its own restaurant or bar but you can sip a cup of tea or a refreshing drink by the fireplace in the lobby lounge or on the roof terrace at any time.
Location: 50m from the King’s Road
The San Domenico House is a red brick townhouse, typical for the Chelsea district, and just a short stroll from the famous King’s Road. Once known for its hippie then punk culture, this is now one of the most popular shopping streets in London. Also just round the corner you’ll find Sloane Square and Sloane Avenue as well as Sloane Square underground station.
