A hotel steeped in history and located in the heart of the city of London, where there is no shortage of entertainment options during the week. I love this hotel because of its history, interesting quirks, and diversity, providing guests with an eclectic range of food & beverage options from the typical English pub serving craft beers to an authentic Japanese restaurant, Miyako, which was voted one of London’s best Japanese restaurants in 2017.
The hotel is a Victorian building that is built on the site of the Bethelem Royal Hospital, which was England’s first hospital for the mentally ill, and was often pronounced as ‘bedlam’; a term now meaning uproar and confusion. The hotel bedrooms are very large for London and are very light and airy compared with some other London hotels. A final interesting quirk of the hotel is that it houses one of London’s best kept secrets… an authentic Grade-I listed Masonic Temple, perfect for business events and dinners, if the business traveller should wish to organise a dinner with potential clients. The masonic temple can be seen in this video tour.
