The Cool, New & Affordable New London Hotel

Favourites 9

A small but perfectly formed hotel in the heart of Covent Garden might sound too good to be true,­ but the newly opened Henrietta Hotel is the latest of London’s highly anticipated new openings.

The Henrietta Hotel is sister hotel to the Experimental Group’s Pigalle in Paris, so you know you’re onto a winner. Celebrating style in its most authentic form, the group knows all there is to know about how to cater for discerning modern customers craving a polished laid back vibe.
Spanning two townhouses, the Henrietta boasts 18 individually designed rooms, featuring hand-built headboards, brass lighting, seriously comfortable beds, 70s retro armchars, marble bathrooms with large mirrors and fountain basins, green and pink walls and such an eclectic and appealing mini bar that even the most disciplined of guests will be hard pushed to resist (bed and beverage anyone?).
For those into their cocktails, Experimental Group are the proud patrons of around a dozen Experimental Cocktail Clubs (frequently listed as some of the world’s best bars) so, unsurprisingly, the cocktails at the Henrietta are damn good and that’s putting it lightly. The hotel is just a stone’s throw from the group’s first London venture, the iconic Experimental Cocktail Club in Chinatown.
As well as being a well-priced boutique hotel by London’s standards, superbly located and really, really comfortable (you can tell we liked it) it’s also home to a destination restaurant making some real noise on the food scene right now. And we can see why. Warm, friendly and welcoming are all words you’d use to describe the restaurant and that’s before we’ve got onto the food. Roast salsify, with honey, brazil nuts & white miso; cod with tartar sauce, mussels & charred brassicas; warm madeleines with Chantilly cream – the dishes are genuinely even better than they sound all thanks to esteemed British chef Ollie Dabbous, whose seasonal menu with a French feel is pulling in foodies thick and fast. We recommend you follow the crowd.
