International influences in London hotels.

by Andrea on August 15, 2014

As any regular reader will know, London Hotels Insight is fighting the good fight for free WiFi in all hotels. If a guesthouse in Orchha, India or a hostel in Bangkok can provide free WiFi, why can’t London’s five star hotels?

I review a lot of hotels. From hostels to 5-star luxury hotels, both chains and boutiques. I’ve stayed in one-pound-a night beach huts in India, enjoyed thirty-ninth-story views of New York and, as a blogger for London Hotels Insight, I of course know London particularly well.

I recently took a trip to St James’s Hotel and Club to sample their afternoon tea. Tucked away on a side-street, off St James’s Street in Mayfair, the five-star boutique hotel was formerly a private members club. It’s easy to see how its discreet location was the perfect place to host aristocracy and travelling diplomats […]
