The Pelham London – Starhotels Collezione

The Pelham is an elegant boutique hotel in the heart of South Kensington. It is located a short walk from Kensington Gardens, the inspiration for the eclectic, brightly colored design of its interiors. It’s clear why The Pelham has long been regarded as one of London’s most sophisticated hotels. It has the aristocratic atmosphere of a London townhouse, its interiors are a romantic mix of elegant patterns and rich tones, complemented by the warm welcome and flawless service.

Room Layouts & Capacities

The Pelham is across the street from the South Kensington underground station, with direct links to and from Heathrow airport. Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Street and many iconic central London locations are only a few tube stops away. Just minutes from the Victoria & Albert and Natural History Museums, Harrods, Hyde Park and The Royal Albert Hall. After sightseeing or shopping, visitors can recharge their batteries in one of the area’s many bars and bistros, including Bar 190 at our sister property The Gore Hotel.

The Pelham’s 52 rooms and suites all have an individual style and design, expressed by a unique mix of antique and modern furniture, paintings and precious fabrics. The eclectic design theme is carried through to the furnishings where exuberantly patterned headboards, drapes and upholstery are offset by

plain, elegant wallpaper, and vice versa. The natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows adds extra radiance to the interiors.

In keeping with the unique blend of contemporary and traditional design that characterises The Pelham, its restaurant and bar offer guests an eclectic experience in an original style. La Trattoria by Alfredo Russo welcomes you at any time of day for a delicious breakfast, light lunch, special Vintage Afternoon Tea or elegant dinner. The restaurant serves traditional-chic Italian food created with the distinctive flair of Michelin-starred Chef Alfredo Russo. It’s cool international atmosphere makes the bar at La Trattoria the perfect place to meet for an appetizing break during the day. Guests can also enjoy an aperitif before dinner or a pleasant drink later in the evening. The extensive, cosmopolitan cocktail menu offers a rich choice, ranging from the great classics to the latest fusion creations.

The hotel’s 5 versatile meeting rooms can be transformed to accommodate a variety of needs for events hosting up to 50  guests. From the classic meeting room – for seminars, presentations, a press conference or a board meeting – to the private dining room, for an exclusive gala dinner. With its sofas, armchairs and open fireplace, the drawing room is perfect for a formal event or a cocktail party, while the dark wood-panelled library is the ideal venue for a reception or private party.

The floor-to-ceiling windows of the hotel’s largest event space, The Gallery,  face onto Cromwell Place, with beautiful views overlooking South Kensington. This versatile space, which can be swiftly transformed from a bright, cheery boardroom to a glamorous lounge, is ideal for board meetings, press conferences, baby showers and cocktail parties. The adjoining Gallery 2 can be laid out as a lounge and is a wonderful venue for fashion events, TV interviews, meetings, cocktail parties and private receptions

Bright and stylish, the private dining room next to La Trattoria by Alfredo Russo can host up to 10 people and is particularly suitable for business meetings or any event where privacy and tranquillity are a must.

With dark wood panelling, classic fireplaces and vintage wooden chests, The Library evokes the atmosphere of a classic English club with invigorating touches: picture frames are rendered in lightwoods, ornate gilded brass and even flowers. Well suited for an informal gathering, a reception or a cocktail party.
