This boutique hotel dating back to 1865 is an understated mix of old-world glamour and modern Brit cool.
The Langham is Europe’s first “grand hotel” — a large luxury hotel built in a traditional architectural style. Today, it has 357 rooms and 23 suites including the six-bedroom The Sterling Suite. Lady Gaga has stayed here, and her suite was decorated with dozens of donuts hanging from the ceiling. “This hotel made it rain donuts. Home sweet home, I’m so touched!” she wrote on her Instagram post.
Situated in the heart of the West End, the hotel is within walking distance of the shops and restaurants on Regent Street and Bond Street. It’s also a short stroll to Regent’s Park, home of the London Zoo and the lookout point Primrose Hill. Prefer to take the Tube? It’s just five minutes’ walk to Bond Street and 10 minutes’ walk to Waterloo Underground stations.
And when you need some respite from being out and about, retreat to the Langham’s award-winning Artesian bar. With its Victorian-Oriental décor and deep armchairs, it is swanky yet sexy — and home to the city’s largest collection of rum. Opened in 2007, the Artesian was named after the 365-foot-deep well under the hotel which originally supplied fresh water for guests. With accolades like “Best Bar in the World” in 2012 (Drinks International magazine), you’re assured of a fabulous time, whatever your poison.
