Considered one of the world’s leading “global cities”, London remains an international capital of culture, music, education, fashion, politics, finance and trade and has a wide range of accommodation to suit all tastes from hostels through historic bed and breakfasts (B&Bs), mainstream chain hotels and apartments all the way to some of the most famous and exclusive luxury hotels in the world such as The Savoy, The Ritz and Claridges.
However, the Savoy stands out among all accommodations in London and was judged as “One of London’s legendary grand hotels, with a Gordon Ramsay restaurant, the Savoy Grill, Art Deco glamour in spades and two cocktail bars, near the National Gallery and the Houses of Parliament. Though classic in style, rooms still feel fresh and inviting”.
