The Lanesborough


In the heart of the capital, a stone’s throw from Knightsbridge, Buckingham Palace, and Hyde Park lies one of London’s most quintessentially British hotel, The Lanesborough. Erected in 1719, the Lanesborough was once the St George’s Hospital building, before being converted into the luxury hotel that we know it as in 1991.

Each of the 93 bedrooms and dining rooms has been restored to their original splendor, whilst the latest technologies and entertainment systems have been seamlessly added to bring this historical building into the digital age.

In addition, the hotel is home to one of the capital’s finest Cigar Lounges – The Garden Room. The Library Room and The Withdrawing Room are an inviting retreat for relaxed drinks.
