A world class 21st century hotel, The Peninsula London sits on a prominent location in Belgravia, facing Wellington Arch and overlooking the Royal Parks. The unique context and history of this site have been carefully explored and are reflected in the architectural design, detailing and materials palette.

The Peninsula London is simply and logically organised on four wings with eight levels of accommodation providing 190 guest rooms and 26 residential apartments, all arranged around a central courtyard. At the upper levels the building sets back to create a series of planted terraces and beautiful external spaces, and to create bar and restaurant space with leafy views over Hyde Park. A further five floors sit below ground and house a spectacular double-height ballroom, The Peninsula Spa and Wellness Centre, facilities for the Residences, as well as car parking and hotel servicing.

The elegant double-height lobby is intentionally positioned to overlook Hyde Park Corner, and a tranquil central courtyard softened by Japanese maple trees and planting offers guests and visitors a calm and luxurious sense of arrival.
