ABOUT THE REMBRANDT HOTEL
The Rembrandt Hotel London tastefully combines elegant Edwardian architecture with contemporary design. The hotel's location, close to Knightsbridge, makes it an ideal base for central London with exclusive shopping and famous museums right on your doorstep.
Whilst staying in the hotel you can enjoy a drink or light meal in the glamorous 1606 Lounge Bar or a delicious meal in the Palette Restaurant. Guests of The Rembrandt also have access to the adjacent Aquilla Health and Fitness at a supplementary charge, where you can enjoy a jacuzzi, a swim, spa treatment or work out at the gym.
Originally built to be used as apartments for the Harrods department store nearby, rooms at The Rembrandt Hotel are all uniquely shaped, offering guests a quirky take on the traditional hotel room.
You can choose from Superior, Executive, Club, Grand and Suite, and all are decorated in a sleek and contemporary style in muted colours, to enhance the calm and comfortable atmosphere.
In-room amenities include interactive TV, Internet access, pay-per-view movies and EU and US power sockets, so you don't have to worry about packing adaptors. Spa baths are available with some Superior and Executive rooms, so if you want a little extra pampering request a spa bath on booking and the friendly staff will be happy to oblige.
Grand and Suite rooms come with luxurious extras to make your stay extra special, such as board games (which will entertain kids and big kids alike if on a family holiday) and his and hers bathrobes. Suite rooms have great views of nearby attractions including the Victoria & Albert Museum, where you can learn about arts and crafts from around the world; Brompton Oratory, which contains notable Italian Baroque sculpture by Giuseppe Mazzuoli and Brompton Road, which has a huge selection of designer and high street shops including department store Harrods.
The hotel is well situated for many local attractions; the Science and Natural History Museums are both nearby for an unforgettable educational experience. Nearby Kensington Palace and gardens gives you an insight into London's austere and intricate historical past as well as a sublime spot for lazing in a deckchair if the weather is sunny. The Royal Albert Hall offers a full programme of musical events, from classical sonatas to Swedish prog metal, under its renowned architectural dome and Hyde Park contains the Serpentine Gallery's modern art collection and solar powered shuttle boat ride.
Placed between South Kensington and Knightsbridge tube stations, the hotel has excellent links to transport hubs such as Victoria Train Station (where you can transfer to Gatwick Airport); Paddington Station; Heathrow Airport; and King's Cross St Pancras Station (where you can transfer from the Eurostar). These tube stations service the Piccadilly, District and Circle lines so you can easily reach other parts of London. The hotel is located on the A4, which is accessible from the M4 and M25 so is easily accessible by car, but it should be noted that this is within the congestion zone and the hotel does not have parking facilities, so you may need to use the LCP car park in Cromwell Road. These tube stations service the Piccadilly, District and Circle lines so you can easily reach other parts of London.
The Rembrandt Hotel's location makes it a very attractive accommodation option, with the most elite selection of London's shops on your doorstep and a wealth of entertainment options; you may not even need to leave the area. It isn't surprising that this hotel is a good choice, with its Harrods' pedigree; this kind of luxury is to be expected.
