Destination London – The Trafalgar St. James London, Curio Collection by Hilton.
Contributed by feature reporter Jens Hoffmann.
Amazing, elegant and funky, London attracts me always.
So many people get stuck on London.
It’s all down to the people, the gentlemen of Trafalgar district, hipster from Camden Town, celebs from High Gate, luxury “macchiato mummies” from Kensington.
I like it to be here. I used to live in London and it was more than 2000 years that London started out on its story.
That was when the Romans founded their settlement of Londinium on the banks of River Thames.People from the Empire all over the world like coming and enjoy this place.
It is not only the numerous sights, my hideaway the new Curio is a lhotel in the heart of London that sets standards.
For me the Trafalgar St. James London, Curio Collection by Hilton is the new stylish place to be and I heard that Mick Jagger will check in for two weeks in a row.
An ambience that could not be more romantic and urban to work, rest and play.
The elegant roooms and suites are urban spaces with high ceilings and triple-pane windows for a quiet retreat.
They are all -even the normal rooms- generously sized with a range of amenities to add that something special to your stay (i-pad, a Nespresso coffeemaker, and books and décor that are distinctly London.
It offers unique restaurants and bars and friendly service entertaining both international visitors and Londoners under the same roof. Easy to Upgrade to a signature suite with iconic views of the square.
Must do’s: Don’t miss The Rooftop Bar, a space for cocktails and drinking in the inimitable city view.
The Rooftop, formerly known as Vista, has been transformed into a year-round destination featuring a stylish lounge and dining area, with a asian menu charing food on small plates and healthy eating options.
Complete with alfresco and canopy-covered seating, the 378-square-metre sky-high space features an open fireplace, heaters and blanket selection to provide warmth throughout the cooler months.
For special occasions and intimate gatherings, Room – a glass-enclosed private dining room.
This sky-high space lends itself is fun. I enjoyed it as much as the the living room and the Biblio Lounge.
