Arrived in London at One Aldwych

13 March, 2016


One Aldwych is the building to the right!

ARRIVED IN LONDON AT ONE ALDWYCH. After a fast visit in Paris I took a flight over to London for business and pleasure. Most of the times when we have been in London we have stayed at hotels in Mayfair, Belgravia, Knightsbridge and South Kensington, so naturally we have spent more time discovering these areas in terms of cafés and restaurants. But I must also admit that I absolutely love South Kensington and Mayfair, I think they have such an excellent selection of restaurants and cafés! But this time around in London I wanted to stay in a new area where I haven’t spent as much time discovering yet so I checked in at One Aldwych in Covent Garden, just by the river Thames and all the theatres of London if you enjoy musicals. One Aldwych is a stunning 5 star luxury hotel with the service of a boutique hotel which I enjoy as you get more of that personal approach from the staff that I enjoy. Sometimes when you stay at a big luxury hotel you can sometimes feel like you drown in the crowd as a guest, which I don’t like at all, I love that feeling when the staff of the hotel takes care of you, almost like you are their child for the week. Covent Garden made such a positive impression on me, especially during the weekdays when it’s slightly less intense, I must say that the neighbourhood is very crowded during the weekend due to all the tourists (Me being one of them of course haha). But I understand why people want to be in this area, it offers all the cultural aspects of London, that have a excellent restaurant & café scene and the shopping is marvellous. But I wouldn’t recommend you to go shopping here during the weekends, a Tuesday afternoon is much better.

Covent Garden truly has blossomed during the last 3-4 years, before that Londoners didn’t really spend any time in this neighbourhood due to all the tourists but as more and more attractive restaurants & high end shops opened up here they started to come back and stay here even after work hours are done. I’m thinking about creating a guide to my favourite spots in Covent Garden, is this something you would be interested in reading more about? Let me know!

 

ARRIVED IN LONDON AT ONE ALDWYCH. Efter en snabbvisit i Paris så tog jag flyget över till London för business samt pleasure! De flesta gånger när vi har varit i London så har vi bott i antingen Mayfair, Belgravia, Knightsbridge eller South Kensington så det har fallit sig mer naturligt att vi då har spenderat vår tiden att upptäcka de områdena mer än andra delar av London samt att jag älskar South Kensington & Mayfair, deras restaurang och café utbud är helt otroligt bra. Men denna gång så ville jag testa på något nytt och checkade in på One Aldwych i Covent Garden, ett stenkast bort från river Thames. Det är ett 5 stjärnigt lyxhotell men de har en personlig approach precis som på ett boutique hotell, en kombination jag uppskattar väldigt mycket. Om du och din pojkvän eller dina tjejkompisar gillar den mer musikaliska delen av London så är detta det perfekta hotellet för er att boka in er på. Ni bor granne med precis allt kulturellt som London har att erbjuda! Ett annat litet inside tips är att One Aldwych har en privat biograf inne i hotellet och varje helg så erbjuder de movie & fizz, man kommer in för en film, dricker champagne för att sedan äta en 3 rätters på deras restaurang Indigo. Ett koncept som är väldigt uppskattat av London borna.

Covent Garden har fullkomligt blomstrat under de senaste 3 åren, bara för några år sedan så ville inte Londonborna vistas i detta område då det är väldigt mycket turister som rör sig i detta område och det är det fortfarande men det har hänt så mycket när det kommer till café och restaurang scenen samt att de flesta high end märken har öppnat upp en boutique i Covent Garden så områdets dragningskraft har verkligen höjts de senaste åren. Funderar på att skapa en guide till Covent Garden med mina bästa CG tips, är det något ni skulle vara intresserade av?

Loved the floral arrangements!

Located right next to the Lion King theatre!

You can enjoy afternoon tea in the lobby inspired by Charlie and the chocolate factory!
