If you're the type of person who needs to capture every single moment of your holiday, we feel you. Decadent bedrooms, botanical beauts, poolside plots? All very snap-worthy no matter the angle. Whether you're on the hunt for a mini staycation or searching for a romantic getaway, we’re breaking down the most Instagrammable hotels in London. Let the photoshoots commence.
St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel London
If you're looking for influencer hotels in London, make your way over to the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel. Along with trendy plates and a swish bar, Booking Office 1869, the hallways have the most alluring spiral staircases - let's just say you can expect Instagram fanatics to be stationed here for a while. And when you're not admiring the Victorian interiors, you'll be making the most of the spa facilities.
For funky hotels in London, Hux Hotel has plenty of Instagrammable moments, thanks to the vibrant colours and quirky décor. The Kensington spot promises 24 unique rooms, as well as a date night boozer, Hux's bar. Settle into velvet-clad seating, and you’ll be treated to a host of stunning sips, each inspired by an animal. We recommend getting the Pingu’s Pride for an aqua-coloured tipple with Thai basil-infused Tanqueray.
Hands down one of the best boutique hotels in London, this one is dripping with opulent vibes. The Londoner’s rooms have a minimalist design with calming colours, as well as plenty of other spaces to explore. From epic poolside cabanas to relaxing spa facilities and dining dens, the hotel is fab for a much-needed escape from your day-to-day. Don’t forget to visit 8 At The Londoner, an elegant Japanese rooftop with a gorgeous lounge.
Milestone Hotel & Residencies
Situated on Kensington Court, Milestone Hotel & Residencies is a Grade II-listed inn, complete with Victorian décor, unique artwork and mahogany tables. And with 43 rooms available, the building exudes British opulence. On top of a luxurious stay, you can nestle into Cheneston's Restaurant for dishes like roasted cauliflower and ribeye steak baguettes or opt for a deluxe afternoon tea for something a little fancier. The pretty pics await…
Located in Canary Wharf, Novotel Hotel has several sites, but we’re singling out this one for the stellar views of the city. Head to the three-storey restaurant bar, Bokan, where you’ll get to enjoy dinner and drinks with a view. After chowing down on a succulent lamb shank, take a dip into their pool. Plus, it also doesn’t hurt that you’ll be snoozing in style with their sleek rooms in jewel-coloured tones.
The Montague On The Gardens Hotel
Minutes away from The British Museum, it comes as no surprise that this sanctuary is a bit of a tourist hotspot. But equally, The Montague on The Gardens Hotel is quite the stunner. During the warmer months, you can visit their quaint gardens, or check out the dreamy dining destinations. While Leopard Bar boasts South African décor and live jazz music, Blue Door Bistro evokes cosy chic vibes.
Treehouse London Hotel
A Marylebone gem, Treehouse London Hotel is a fabulous find for a mini couples getaway. Rooms exude a modern feel with quirky accents – think sloth-shaped pillows, potted plants and antique lanterns. Equally pretty, the hotel's restaurant, Madera, has exquisite plates of Mexican cuisine while the Nest Rooftop Bar is your one-stop-shop for gorgeous greenery and sky-high views.
For hidden gem hotels in London, The Mandrake is an excellent retreat fronting jaw-dropping rooms. With dangling crystal chandeliers, an aesthetically-pleasing bathtub and cashmere beds, each suite has decadent prints throughout. And if you’re lucky enough to book The Penthouse, expect a lush jacuzzi bath and plush white interiors. But the real star? The first-floor jungle terrace, Jurema, which overlooks a chic courtyard.
Setting up camp in areas such as Manhattan, Miami and Hollywood, The Standard has quite the reputation. Brimming with character, the rooms have retro shapes everywhere you look, from the walls to the tiles and the bedding. Isla and Decimo are excellent hotel restaurants to check out, followed by a mood-boosting cocktail at Sweeties, a drinking den that utilises nootropics and adaptogens.
One of the most Instagrammable hotels in London, Hotel 41 is a unique sanctuary worth getting stuck into. We recommend spending the evening in the conservatory suite with translucent windows. The room even has a gold telescope, so you can star gaze from the comfort of your bed. For some entertainment, you'll also be treated to an exclusive cinema room, with popcorn, candy and cocktails at the ready.
