THE NEW ROAD RES­I­DENCE I dream of stay­ing here. The own­ers of Hostem have staged this beau­ti­ful res­i­dence in an 18th-cen­tury linen mer­chant’s house cre­at­ing a mag­i­cal pal­ette as a back­drop for Faye Toogood’s ‘Roly Poly’ chair, Stu­art Shave gallery art­works, Rick Owens pieces and a kitchen by Plain English. The no­tion of ‘if you like it you can buy it’ tops off what is a mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence. 33newroad.com

CHILTERN FIRE­HOUSE A ho­tel housed in Lon­don’s first pur­pose-built fire sta­tion with 26 rooms that feel like the pri­vate house of your long-lost English grea­tun­cle. Owned and imag­ined by An­dré Balazs (Chateau Mar­mont and The Mercer) it oozes thought­ful­ness for the guest ex­pe­ri­ence. As well as beau­ti­fully ap­pointed rooms, think mar­ble bath­rooms, fire­places, 24-hour kitchen, and a phone that says Dial 0 for Any­thing. If that’s not enough you can ac­cess the cool bar and restau­rant – be sure to book WAY in ad­vance. chiltern­fire­house.com

This page, from top Bert’s Barges of­fers a dif­fer­ent kind of Lon­don ac­com­mo­da­tion. Stylish tex­tiles and ac­cou­trements at The Laslett Ho­tel. Op­po­site page An­dré Balazs’ Chiltern Fire­house is a lux­ury ho­tel in a trans­formed Gothic build­ing.

TIPS RIDE | Lon­don is spread out, get in tune with the tube but choose your times wisely and try to avoid peak hours.
