Artist Residence – boutique hotel in Pimlico

Pimlico’s Artist Residence is a stylish boutique hotel, conveniently situated just 5 minutes walk from Victoria Station. From this quiet stucco fronted side street you are within easy reach of some of London’s most popular tourist destinations such as Hyde Park, Mayfair and The Embankment.

As the name suggests the focus here is on art, big, bold and lots of it! From the moment you walk in the door you just know this place is going to have bags of personality and the rest of the hotel certainly doesn’t disappoint.

Each of the 10 individual rooms in this elegant Georgian townhouse are unique but all share the same eclectic pared back glamour. Rustic materials and repurposed furniture are combined with luxurious soft furnishings, freestanding baths from Catchpole and Rye and seriously comfy king size beds. Even the smallest of the rooms offers uncompromising quality and style.

On the ground floor you’ll find hearty breakfasts, delicious juices, milkshakes and an exciting seasonal lunch and dinner menu served up in the Cambridge Street Kitchen. This sociable foodie hub has become as popular with locals as it is with hotel guests so be sure to book ahead. The Eggs Benedict and hot chocolate with marshmallows definitely got the seal of approval from my hungry gang and we even got to share our breakfast with Santa, how fun!

With rooms starting from around £225 per night the Artist Residence offers affordable luxury in a central yet surprisingly peaceful location. The staff are friendly and helpful, the vibe and decor – cool but unpretentious, and with a great on site restaurant you’ll have plenty of reasons to stay put.

Kids of all ages are welcome but the only drawback here is that rooms cannot accommodate any extra beds.  For babies up to the age of 2 the medium rooms and suites can accommodate an extra cot, and children over the age of 12 can stay in their own room.

We went to Villandry, the gorgeous gourmet food-shop and restaurant on Great Portland Street in central London. Stylish décor, buzzing ambience, great food, ...
