Oyster Hotel Review


Design-oriented boutique hotel with a buzzing bar and restaurant

The Baglioni Hotel is home to strong design from the lobby to the rooms to the Brunello Restaurant. Murano glass chandeliers and a gold leaf-paneled reception desk are all striking features. While some boutique hotels don't offer much of a scene, that isn't the case here. In addition to style, this five-pearl hotel also offers a ground floor Mediterranean-inspired restaurant, Brunello. Cozy armchairs and a roaring fireplace set the scene for an indulgent meal paired with fine wines.

Spacious rooms are all individually decorated with contemporary, luxurious decor

Spacious rooms are one of the most appealing features of the Baglioni Hotel. Rooms and suites are designed in clean, classic lines. Textural contrast between dark, lacquered wood flooring and sensual fabrics -- like silk and textile quilted walls or velvet furniture -- create spaces that are both luxe and romantic. On top of contemporary pieces, art brings Italian charm with classics from the Italian Renaissance era.

There are eight different room and suite categories at the Baglioni, yet all rooms will have several things in common. Generous spaces with dark wood floors and lush fabrics also have flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, free Wi-Fi, and an Illy espresso machine. Beyond these common features, room types vary with different amenities.

  • A Deluxe Room offers more space than the basic Superior Room as well as the option for a private terrace.
  • Executive Rooms are slightly bigger than the Deluxe Rooms, but don't offer terraces.
  • Courtyard Junior and Deluxe Junior Suites offer more space and private entrance foyers, along with extra luxurious bathrooms with handmade copper basins imported from Morocco.
  • Executive Park View Junior Suites offer views over Kensington Gardens and a second flat-screen TV in the bedroom.
  • Deluxe and Executive Suites are larger again, at 540 square feet, and also offer a second flat-screen TV in the bedroom.
  • The Chelsea Suite offers sweeping floor-to-ceiling windows, a separate living room and bedroom, and Jacuzzi tub.
  • The Kensington Gardens Suite has two separate bathrooms, a working fireplace, and spacious balcony for outdoor dining.
  • The Hyde Park Suite is slightly larger than the Kensington Gardens Suite, with a similar room layout but no balcony option.
  • The Royal Suite contains three separate bedrooms, each with luxurious en-suite bathrooms, along with two separate reception rooms and working fireplaces.


Sophisticated bar and restaurant along with an elegant spa and fitness center

The Baglioni Hotel offers more features than your average boutique hotel. Here a sophisticated bar offers an array of cocktails, whiskies, cognacs, and cigars. The restaurant, Brunello, serves Mediterranean-inspired cuisine in a cozy environment of plush armchairs and a roaring fireplace. The elegant spa offers a long list of spa treatments with specialty options for pregnant women, and men too.


A Mediterranean-inspired restaurant and stylish cocktail bar

The Brunello Lounge and Restaurant is a new brand concept developed by the Baglioni group. The head chef is a former Marco Pierre-White trainee, Andrea Vercelli, and concentrates on the simplicity of Italian cooking and outstanding quality ingredients, many imported fresh from Italy.
