Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Exquisite English-style luxury in a historic Knightsbridge townhouse

This small boutique hotel offers the best five-star services with the perks of a quiet, neighborhood location. Knightsbridge is an upscale neighborhood that places guests within a short walk of exclusive shopping and museums. The scene is set here by rich decor that evokes another time in England's history. Beautiful silver antiques, unique light fixtures, and luxurious furniture all encourage lingering breakfasts and long hours of afternoon tea. For an extra touch of exclusivity, the hotel is also known for its original art collection with works by Picasso and Matisse.

Beyond the decor that is worthy of royalty, the staff at the Egerton House hotel are what makes the scene so memorable. This boutique hotel is an escape within a busy city, serving afternoon tea on a rainy day or a perfect martini to get an evening started.

 Location

In the upscale Knightsbridge neighborhood near exclusive shopping and museums, but a 10-minute walk from the nearest tube stations

Knightsbridge is an affluent shopping and residential area populated by well-heeled locals. This neighborhood is home to some of London's wealthiest residents, including Chelsea football club owner Roman Abramovich. Located south of Hyde Park, the two nearest tube stations -- Knightsbridge and South Kensington -- are a 10-minute walk from the hotel. Many popular London attractions are nearby, including a 10-minute walk to the Chelsea Antiques market, a 2-minute walk to the famous Harrods department store, and a 8-minute walk to the Victoria and Albert Museum.

This area of South Kensington is often called the "Little France" of London -- with its French cafes, bookshops, culture institute and a French secondary school. The neighborhood is filled with French expatriates and Francophiles, and French is often spoken in this part of London.
