The rows of elegant town houses in London’s South Kensington can bring on an acute case of real estate envy, but for those without the multi-million pound budget to acquire their own, Doyle Collection's The Kensington Hotel is introducing an alternative you can get just for the night: its new 1,900 square foot Town House Suite.

The privately-owned hotel occupies four real Regency town houses just off of Old Brompton Road, which puts you a bit further away from the West End, but around the corner from the Natural History Museum and a stroll away from glorious Royal Albert Hall. The Town House Suite can be configured with up to three bedrooms, each with private bathroom. We love the classic fireplace and the little circular nook next to it in the above picture – how could you not want to curl up and never leave?

Ceilings are four meters (13+ feet) high, and there is a balcony behind the French windows you see in the pictures. The sofa and glass table are a pretty modern contrast to the wall paneling and classic chairs. WiFi is as it should be – free – and the usual wizzy things like Bose docking stations, LCD TVs, and Nespresso machines are there.

TVs are also found in the bathrooms above the separate soaker tubs, and your toes will appreciate the heated floors on cold winter nights.

The Town House Suite (which curiously enough is also referred to as the Knightsbridge and the Kensington Suite on the hotel’s website) runs at about £1,680 ($2,800) a night. The money poured into the creation of this suite is the start of additional investment in the group’s properties, which include a few hotels in London, Bristol, Dublin and Cork in Ireland, and idiosyncratically, the Dupont Circle Hotel in Washington DC.
