Introducing Belmond Cadogan in London

Superbly located at the heart of London’s Knightsbridge, Belmond Cadogan is the newest addition to the Belmond global collection of hotels, trains and river cruises. This historic property, dating from 1887, reopens in summer 2016 fully renovated and reconceptualised. Its 54 rooms and suites and gourmet restaurant will reflect the hotel’s rich heritage, creating a stylish retreat for visitors to Sloane Street and nearby attractions including Hyde Park and the Saatchi Gallery.
Built in Queen Anne style, Belmond Cadogan has played an integral role in the social history of the Kensington and Chelsea area. The US$48 million project will draw inspiration from the neighbourhood’s rich character, offering an elegant meeting place for both international visitors and the local community.
Says John M Scott, President and Chief Executive Officer of Belmond Ltd. “We are very pleased to be working together with Cadogan Estates on what will become one of London’s foremost luxury hotels and to be partnering with an owner who shares our vision for offering authentic and one-of-a-kind luxury travel experiences.”
