Location, location, location. The area it’s located in (and what that area’s like) and how close it is to appealing attractions and venues are all-important for a hotel in a major city. We’re only too aware of that at San Domenico House – it’s one of the things we recognise is a feather in our cap as a high-quality boutique hotel in London’s Chelsea.
However, we’re also aware it’s far from the be and end all for any accommodation. We know – just as our guests do – that we’re successful and popular with them because what we offer’s just what they want; in short, the very best. Indeed, we strive to ensure that, not just our rooms and suites, but our services and facilities are of the highest possible standard every single day of the year.
Indeed, we may be small, but – not least due to the fact we’re to be found in a grand yet elegant, late Victorian red-brick townhouse with gorgeous Italian-style, luxurious interiors – we’re perfectly formed. And as 5-star accommodation, our facilities are second to none; blending the traditional with the modern and always with an emphasis on undiluted comfort. Each of our exquisitely furnished 17 rooms and suites come complete with en-suite marble bathrooms (each featuring a bath, a shower, Molton Brown toiletries and towelling bathrobes); air conditioning; cable-television-installed flat-screen TVs; DVD/ CD players; hairdryers; complimentary Wi-Fi access and, available to all guests on request, a fax machine too.
As far as services are concerned, you can be assured our room service attends to every one of our guests’ needs and desires, especially when it comes to dining – breakfast, lunch and dinner, afternoon tea and beverages (alcoholic or otherwise) are all available. Furthermore, our concierge service exists to help guests book tables at restaurants and tickets for the best West End theatres, museums and taxis/ limousines, while also aiding in arranging airport transportation and keeping guests’ valuables secure in a safe deposit box.
Moreover, for guests who choose to stay with us while in town for work, we can help organise chauffer services, secretarial support and business couriers, as well as provide photocopying, if requested. Plus, should you be visiting with the kids in tow, be assured we offer specific services tailored to families (or, rather, parents); we can help you to make babysitting arrangements, if necessary, and as part of our extensive dining menus, provide child-friendly meal options.
So, all in all, although we boast a location in a prime part of London – making us, if not quite a hotel next to Harrods, then one very close to the upmarket shopping of Knightsbridge and the West End and definitely within the exquisite environs of Chelsea and Kensington – we’re about far more than that. Ours is a hotel that offers the real deal – outstanding location, supreme rooms and suites, and first-class facilities and services.
