On a whirlwind trip to london recently, I stayed in the newest Firmdale Hotels property, the Ham Yard hotel, in London’s Soho.
I am a big fan of the Firmdale group, their Kit Kemp Interiors are stunning & every inch of their hotels are finished in luxury.
When in London, you want to stay at a hotel that has an honesty bar – usually located in the library (yes, you also want to stay in one with a library), the honesty bar is a beautiful space to have drinks with friends or clients (visiting in the winter months...Cue fireplace & falling snow!).
In any major city, finding a property with rooms that have outdoor spaces is rare, but the ham yard has suites with beautiful balconies that overlook a very London rooftop skyline.
Located right near Liberty, and worth the morning walk up through the winding streets to see the morning flower displays, a short walk to oxford circus or Carnaby Street, but the ham yard is its own oasis, so you can immerse yourself in the London craziness & easily escape back to the hotel & be a world away.
A bath you could swim in, a rooftop garden, and salted caramel popcorn in the mini bar! If the Ham Yard would let me live there, I would. - SWx
