Hotel Xenia, Autograph Collection in London, England
The name of Xenia London – part of the collection of – is derived from the ancient Greek concept of hospitality shown to travelers from faraway lands. Travelers who arrive on the whitewashed and pillared doorstep of this elegant estate will find homey touches in modern surroundings – cheeky rustic fowl pillows bring a hint of English countryside to the big city.
Spend the morning at the Victoria and Albert, the world’s largest museum of arts and design, then stroll down the magnificent tree-lined avenues of Kensington Garden, one of eight royal parks in London. Take afternoon tea amid the manicured gardens of The Orangery, sipping on a delicate teacup of black tea with Cornish clotted cream. Michelin-starred Chef Andrea Angeletti oversees dinner at back at the hotel.

Reviews for Hotel Xenia, Autograph Collection
Having stayed a couple of times, Iâ€™ve come to really love this place. The staff are very friendly and professional. There is a very nice and comfortable feel to this hotel. Yes, the room are small. But the hotel website makes no secret of that fact. The rooms are small but very well appointed and comfortable. Fast becoming my go to place in London. The breakfast is decent but the hot offering on the Buffet is pretty pointless. As a platinum member I would like a better hot breakfast choice. The bar is nice, with comfortable seats but like the rest of the hotel itâ€™s compact.
I stayed for the first time at Hotel Xenia. The hotel is very nicely furnished, but the real surprise is the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. It will now become my new " hotel home" in London.

I stayed at Hotel Xenia over a 2-day business trip. Staff at the restaurant, bar and front desk gave sincerely warm (not the fake "my pleasure" variety) customer service. My upgraded room was small (true to other reviews) but was sweetly chic. Perhaps my favorite thing about the building was the narrow winding hallways. They made me feel as though I was navigating a rabbit den, and, to me, that only added to the charm of this Victorian-era hotel. The cafe table on the balcony and the L'occtaine bath products are also details worth noting; as was the turn-down treat, which was a small tasty cookie. I am an extremely loyal SPG member and receive cross-over platinum rewards with Marriott. Usually I seek to stay at SPG properties because that's my comfort zone and I prefer their loyalty program. I especially like SPG Design collection properties because I really appreciate quirky boutique hotels. Hotel Xenia was my first stay at an Autograph Collection property and I will absolutely try one of these properties again, as they seem to have a similar quality to Design Collection. Thanks Hotel Xenia. Next time rather than a business trip, I hope to enjoy your lovely hotel -- which is in a great location by the way --with family.

Great location, staff very well mannered and available. Room cleaned often. I stayed in a single room and it was tiny. Difficult to stay organized in a room this small, but it does have an adorable little terrace that would be lovely in warmer months. Would stay again.

The quality of the bed and the provided towels are excellent. Anyway I had some issues with the surrounding noise. The first room have been 3-5m away from a big farm of aircondition fans. The second room was a little bit better, but still not convenient.
