So long as were visiting South Kensington on your relocation to London we may as well cover the most sought after building in the area, Prince Albert hall. Truly an amazing building it’s been in continuous use since it opened in 1871. Prince Albert’s vision is how it’s described; it really is an amazing place. For this month of September there are plenty of BBC Proms happening. The ceiling provides for amazing acoustics and it is a spectacular place to hear an orchestra. This Saturday for instance is a Rachmaninov production.
Just down the street directly across from the tube station is the Pelham. Now The Pelham is a five star hotel that is dedicated to outstanding and impeccable service and luxury. At The Pelham everything from the fluffy slippers and robes to the finest linens on the beds, decorated “English with a twist”, it’s first class all the way. Up to date and extremely fine are the furnishings and the ambience still carries a distinction of elegance from an earlier time. To treat yourself to your first holiday after your relocation to London is a fabulous idea! Rooms are about GBP 200 a night and up from there, not a place you’d move in, but definitely worth treating yourself to for a weekend.
The drawing room at The Pelham is exclusive to guests alone and boasts a spectacular English fireplace. Just listen to this:
“Step into The Pelham, and you will become part of the exclusive yet relaxed atmosphere offering you unparalleled service throughout your stay.”
“The wood panelled Drawing room and Library both have open fireplaces and deep designer sofas. Reserved exclusively for guests they offer 24 hour service, ensuring you are always well looked after, whatever the hour.”
Hmm, unparalleled eh? Whatever the hour you say? I’m a woman that can appreciate service, myself and my counterparts Americans moving to London, trust me ladies, living in London has it’s perks! Did I mention that Harrods is there in South Kensington too? Not to mention the exclusive boutiques, it’s a shopper’s paradise.
So really we’ve only covered two stops woth making (three, Harrods if your a shopper) and there’s still so much more that South Kensignton station brings within a short 5 minute walk. So when you’ve read this idea I hope you take it to heart, who doesn’t deserve a weekend of Unparreled service after all your hard work planning. With everything that your relocation agents have been sending you on your relocation to London, surely this idea should be incorporated into your living in London plan somewhere?
