Situated at the prestigious intersection of Hyde Park Corner and Wellington Arch, this newly-built hotel has been meticulously designed and appointed to embody the finest British craftsmanship.

Additionally, guests can enjoy Peninsula Time, offering flexible check-in and check-out times, access to a House car, and complimentary airport pick-up for all suite reservations.

The Peninsula London’s prime location offers easy access to many of London’s iconic attractions, such as Buckingham Palace, The Royal Parks, The Palace of Westminster, Harrods, and the boutiques of Bond Street, all within a 15-minute walk.

The property boasts 190 understatedly luxurious guest rooms and suites, ranging from 51 to 59 square meters (549 to 635 square feet).
