  • The hotel's convenient location, just a short walk from the residential Sloane Square and posh Knightsbridge
  • The buzzing bar and restaurant, which are overseen by innovative British chef Adam Handling
  • That guests get exclusive access to the 93-acre Cadogan Estate Gardens, located across the street from the hotel


Set at the intersection of three coveted neighborhoods—Knightsbridge, Chelsea and Belgravia—the nearly 130-year-old historic Cadogan hotel received a $48 million renovation and full reimagining by the Belmond team in 2019. The hotel entrance is located on Sloane Street, and guests are greeted by a charming doorman in red tartan uniform upon arrival. The five-star hotel is elegant yet unfussy, with a contemporary design and more than 430 original artworks by British artists throughout the property.

With just 54 accommodations, including 39 suites and a spectacular penthouse, the Belmond Cadogan has the intimate feel of a private apartment building. Each room has a slightly different layout, but all are warm and inviting and feature special touches such as hand-knitted teapot cozies (knitted by chef Adam Handling's mother) and calming sleep sprays for bedtime.

The hotel's restaurant offers elegant British cuisine and is worth a visit even for non-hotel guests. The Belmond also offers several uniquely British dining experiences, such as a private breakfast with a London cabbie and afternoon tea. Perhaps the hotel's most unique highlight is its exclusive access to the 93-acre Cadogan Estate Gardens across the street. Designed in 1886 and typically reserved for local residents only, this elegant expanse with a Secret Garden atmosphere is the perfect place for a quiet stroll or, in warmer months, a picnic and a match on the private tennis courts. On-property amenities also include a spa and fitness center. It's also close to shops and boutiques in and around Sloane Square and Pavilion Road, the Pimlico Design District, as well as the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Saatchi Gallery.
