Expert review of myhotel Chelsea

A relaxed place to stay for stylish shoppers.

I like the easy-living style of the myhotel group, and this charming little bolthole is one of two London boutique hotels - with a third down by the sea in Brighton. While their New Age approach is a little irritating (crystals, inspirational quotations, the 'mypreferences' form) the focus on tailoring services to the guest is gratifying.

Location: 

On a quiet side street not far off Fulham Road, myhotel Chelsea is a short (but rather confusing walk) from South Kensington Underground station and London’s three big Victorian museums: the Natural History Museum, Science Museum and Victoria & Albert. It’s also close to the chic shops on Brompton Road and the department store bustle of Knightsbridge.

Bedrooms: 

The rooms are sweetly feminine, with wicker headboards and velvet cushions in pink and purple tones, but sensible technology (flatscreen TVs with DVD player, free internet) keeps things in line. Smellies in the neat bathrooms are the BeeKind range from Gilchrist & Soames.

Public areas: 

The key attraction to the Chelsea myhotel is, for me, the Library, an airy central conservatory where you can sit in modernist armchairs to read style mags or listen to the water feature. But free mini-muffins or pastries and the aquarium at reception are also nice touches.

Eating and drinking: 

The bar is a gentle space too, somewhere to calmly discuss the day’s purchases rather than party hard - the plain wood floors, tongue-and-groove fittings and dining table give a domestic feel, despite vigorous wallpaper and the skinnily modern white leather chairs. For food, though, I’d head to Tom’s Kitchen, which is round the corner on Cale Street.

Leisure facilities: 

Just off the Library, there’s a little gym (elegant free weights, cardiovascular machines, yoga mats) and the Jinja room for treatments.

Service: 

Good-natured, but sometimes a bit too relaxed - even distracted.

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel very much. I was visiting the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and it worked well as a base for two days. I found a watering hole or two near by and an eatery or two but agree from some peoples point of view it could be described as quite quiet from a nightlife point of view. I have stayed in hotels with better bedrooms but the ones at this hotel were good enough.
