Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Stylish, refreshed period building with sultry burlesque touches

Hotel Lobby
Hotel Lobby

In 2008 a two year, multi-million refurbishment was completed at the Tophams Hotel. This boutique property flaunts a refreshing take on period design with sultry burlesque touches including red velvet furnishings with sassy wall pieces in the lounge. Classic period touches blend with classy nouveau antiques in the lobby. Contemporary rooms are on the small side, but comfortable and stylish. The result of this makeover is a chic boutique option in a peaceful location, but with no restaurant or fully-stocked bar, there isn't much of a scene within the hotel itself.

 Location

Seven-minute walk to Victoria station, near Buckingham Palace

The Deluxe Double Room
The Deluxe Double Room

Refurbished rooms at the Tophams Hotel are pleasant and tastefully decorated with bespoke furnishings. Here you can expect fun patterned wallpaper, pops of color, and interesting throw pillows. While some rooms are on the small side, they all have flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, writing desks, tea and coffee facilities, and a minibar. Bathrooms are luxurious and upgrading from a standard double to a deluxe double gets a separate soaking tub and stall shower.

 Features

Sultry lounge and modest business center

The Business Center
The Business Center

The Tophams Hotel is a boutique property with no restaurant or full service bar. The refurbished lounge has sultry burlesque decor and a modest business center offers computers to guests who leave laptops at home. The hotel does offer a complete English breakfast in a lovely, bright dining area -- not usually included in the room rate -- and afternoon tea is available as well.

The boutique Tophams Hotel is conveniently located near the Victoria tube station.
