L’oscar, a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, is an exclusive 39-bedroom luxury hotel and a previously-abandoned architectural gem. The former Headquarters of the Baptist Church has now been fantastically-restored and re-imagined in all its Baroque glory. Once left derelict, this 110-year-old treasure has been subject to a no-expense-spared refurbishment by highly- esteemed French architect and designer Jacques Garcia, of Hotel Costes fame, creating his first London hotel.
Set near Covent Garden, L’oscar is an ideal location for experiencing the heart of the city, where guests can enjoy easy access to a range of luxury boutique, restaurants and cultural hot spots including Theatre land, the British Museum and the Royal Opera House.
Those looking for a luxurious and more intimate escape in the heart of London.
L’oscar boasts a spectacular octagonal chapel alongside ornate ceilings, carved fireplaces, oak panelling and magnificently proportioned rooms, all cleverly complemented by a mischievously-talented redesign that adds elegant and unexpected new twists.
Every room is delightfully individual, with extravagant styling, high ceilings, large windows and a wealth of original detail, all personalised and curated by Garcia’s opulent design.
Far from its original purpose, L’oscar promises to be a visual and gastronomic temptation.
Rooms and Suites
All of the 39 bedrooms and suites are decorated with commissioned arts & crafts period artwork and feature luxurious handpicked Icelandic Eiderdown duvets. They provide access to modern technology as well as amenities including tailor-made Roja Dove products.
Food and Drink
The L’oscar restaurant is the bustling heart of the hotel offering the charm and sophistication of a Parisian café.

A food lover’s lair, it is the go-to place for delectable breakfasts, bistro-style lunches, intimate evening dinners or simply a late-night dessert and a soothing glass of wine.
