Behind the red-brick façade of the original three town houses, you’ll find 54 bedrooms decorated in what we’d call pretty maximalist style, with ornate headboards, Murano chandeliers and full marble bathrooms. We can’t think of many London hotels that are able to offer self-contained apartments with private access and garages, but No11 has four.
The contemporary European restaurant has a capacity of 70 covers over five linked dining areas, with parts of the ceiling and the back wall covered in mirrors. Should the sun make a rare appearance, the outdoor courtyard seats a maximum of twelve guests. Open from 11am to 11pm, the panelled bar – complete with pink chandeliers – is the place for drinks as well as breakfast and light meals throughout the day.
A library and drawing room provide additional public areas for residents to relax and pretend they’ve landed this prime slice of real estate themselves (or is that just us?). A gym is on the lower-ground floor, with meeting space for groups ranging from six to 60 available as well.
For a weekend later in August, we found five different room types, from an 18 sq m Superior Room to the 120 sq m Sloane Suite. Best available rates range from GBP180 ($281) to GBP1,500 ($2340), but discounted rates are possible if you’re willing to pay up front.
