My favourite hotel: The Sloane Square Hotel – Paul Baker

Paul Baker, Sales Director of Global Travel Management shares his favourite central London hotel and tells us why The Sloane Square Hotel provides the perfect central London accommodation.


As Paul says, ‘you can’t get a better location that this’.

The Sloane Square Hotel is not just in London, it’s at the very heart of central London. Nestled into the north side of Sloane Square, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

It’s a perfect location for business travellers. It’s in the middle of the very best locations in central London, surrounded by world-leading businesses, Kensington Olympia, High Commissions and Embassies.

But it’s also a perfect base from which to extend a business trip into some leisure time, as it’s so close to great shops, museums, the V&A, Science Museum, Natural History Museum and the Saatchi Gallery; West End theatres; Kensington Palace.

It’s no surprise that we’re often asked to extend midweek business trips to include a weekend with families.

And, importantly, it’s handy for a couple of football clubs: the best team in the area, Fulham, and some other team that plays in blue.

The hotel offers 100 bedrooms, with an array of room types, overlooking Sloane Square, or the quiet calm of rooms opposite Holy Trinity Church.

The Junior Suite is great. 27 square metres, including a seating area in a bay window overlooking the Square; Wi-Fi; complimentary min-bar soft drinks; luxury bathroom; Nespresso coffee machine; neck and back massager; safe; television and, to celebrate a successful business trip, Champagne.

The Superior rooms are exactly that: with an excellent range of amenities and about 23 square metres of space.

And the Club Family room is really popular for business trips that are extended to include family, with accommodation for two adults and a child.


The hotel was completely renovated and redesigned in 2005/6. But it retains plenty of the character of the hotel that has stood on the site for more than 120 years.

It’s no surprise that the hotel has welcomed some of the most stylish people, especially during Chelsea’s swinging sixties.

The Beatles are said to have stayed at the hotel. I can understand why. But you won’t experience a hard day’s night here.


I have always had a great welcome from all the staff at The Sloane Square Hotel.

If you can judge a hotel on its staff alone – and there’s much, much more to this hotel than just the staff – then this hotel is worth every single one of its stars.

The Junios Suite at The Sloane Square Hotel has a seating area in bay window overlooking Sloane Square. a bathroom with a free-standing bath and separate shower and a luxury King size bed with high-quality linen to make you feel special.

The Sloane Square Hotel has been a favourite of Global Travel Management’s for sometime now. It is ideal for leisure and business travellers, in part because of its location and for its access to no fewer than twelve London Underground stations, on the Central, Circle, District, Hammersmith & Fulham and Piccadilly Lines. The Côte Brasserie restaurant offers an imaginative French inspired menu at great prices.
