Shangri-La Hotel at The Shard, London 5 stars

Southwark, London

Each uniquely designed guest room has floor-to-ceiling windows providing spectacular views of the city, and maintains the theme of Oriental elegance found throughout the hotel. Featuring the body-contouring-technology ‘Shangri-La Bed’, rooms include a TV, coffee machine, complimentary WiFi and a set of binoculars. An absolutely outstanding experience in every way. An amazing hotel with the most fabulous views of London. The staff were extremely attentive, professional, knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. The room (Iconic King) was beautiful and perfect, like a suite, with the best views of London I have ever seen. We were also lucky to have a bath with a view (not all iconic rooms have them). The swimming pool is also simply luxury in every way, with infinity views across London. But it was the service that was so special, from the afternoon tea waiter who kissed my daughter's hand, to the pool staff who hand you the towel as you leave the water, to an exceptional dinner waiter, great check in staff and a manage who found you at breakfast to check if everything was OK, and an anniversary cake in our room - and other staff who knew it was our anniversary, to the doorman who wished us a happy onward journey. Everyone was genuinely wonderful and incredibly well trained and motivated. Simply superb, and a step above all other five star hotels I have stayed in. We were so sad to leave.

The Ampersand Hotel 5 stars

Kensington, London

Bedrooms at The Ampersand are individually decorated with bold contemporary wallpaper designs and original Victorian features. Each room has a minibar, a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, and an en suite bathroom. The location is amazing. Just 2 minutes away from underground. Hotel was pretty new. Furnitures and decoration was very modern. Bed was comfortable and the room was very clean (I am very careful about it). Staff very nice and polite. They upgraded us and it was a very nice gesture. Even though we were upgraded, the room we stayed was not big also the bathrom but it really did not bother us. The price of the hotel is not cheap but considering the location and amenity of the hotel, I believe it is not easy to find a better one in London.
