How often do you find a full Poggenpohl kitchen in a city hotel room that is not a suite setting you back four figures a night? Not very often, we’d like to think, though this is what we saw when we recently popped into the Apartments by the Sloane Club, just off of the swanky London square of the same name.

True, this is slightly different than a ‘normal’ hotel, being two red brick mansions on a tree-lined residential street, linked to a private members club around the corner, and generally a minimum stay of a week applies (though shorter stays are possible depending on availability). But starting at a not-extravagant-for-London £220 ($370) a night, a Studio gets you hotel services, a bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom in a quirky triplex space.

A compact entry hallway takes you into the bedroom, with a small dining table to your right, just beyond which you’ll see the dual staircase: up is the kitchen, down is the bathroom, as well as a laundry closet with washing machine.

The kitchen is fully equipped with flatware, cutlery, oven, dishwasher, and Nespresso machine. A continental breakfast can be brought to you in a hamper, and room service is available, but why not live like a local, head down King’s Road or to Waitrose on Belgravia’s Motcomb Street for a grocery shop and whip something up yourself?

If you need more space, there are 18 apartments in total, with the largest having two bedrooms and two bathrooms (and being considerably more expensive). All apartments are air-conditioned, and WiFi is blessedly free – all other services (housekeeping, 24/7 concierge) are available through the Sloane Club around the corner.
