THE ARCH LON­DON IS A LUX­U­RI­OUS Ge­or­gian town­house hideaway, on a quaint res­i­den­tial street in Maryle­bone, a stone’s throw from Bond Street, Hyde Park and the West End.

The of­fi­cially rated five-star prop­erty is a reg­u­lar res­i­dent amongst the top 20 Lux­ury ho­tels in the UK on TripAd­vi­sor and has earned the 2017 Forbes Travel Guide Rec­om­mended Award. In Novem­ber 2018, The Arch Lon­don won the Best Ser­vice Award 2019 in Condé Nast Jo­hansens Awards for Ex­cel­lence.

For vis­i­tors from the Arab world, it has ev­ery­thing you’d want from a tra­di­tional Lon­don ho­tel. A roar­ing open-fire­place pro­vides a warm­ing wel­come, while the in­te­rior is qui­etly glam­orous, boast­ing mar­ble and glass and a spe­cially cu­rated col­lec­tion of art.

Gue­strooms are all light, airy and spa­cious with Ge­or­gian ceil­ings. In­di­vid­u­ally dec­o­rated with the ho­tel’s sig­na­ture hand-painted be­spoke wall­pa­per, they are im­mac­u­lately fin­ished with the high­est at­ten­tion to ev­ery de­tail in ev­ery as­pect.

For well-heeled vis­i­tors from the GCC used to space and pri­vacy, the ho­tel’s eleven stun­ning suites of­fer the ul­ti­mate con­tem­po­rary bou­tique ex­pe­ri­ence. Spe­cial fea­tures in­clude pri­vate out­door ter­races, four poster beds or stylish kitch­enettes to ac­com­mo­date longer stays. Large art­works have been thought­fully hand­picked to com­ple­ment each space, pro­vid­ing dra­matic fo­cal points through­out.

Those same vis­i­tors will not go hun­gry. Hunter 486 is named after the 1950s di­al­ing code for Maryle­bone and of­fers a ‘Best of Bri­tish’ in­spired menu care­fully de­vel­oped by Head Chef Gary Dur­rant. Guests will en­joy the chic sur­round­ings as much as the fine choice of fizz, sig­na­ture cock­tail and flaw­less per­sonal ser­vice. Mean­while, Le Sa­lon de Cham­pagne oozes time­less Lon­don glam­our and is laid back lux­ury at its best. Or, try the Mar­tini Li­brarya, a warm, op­u­lent lounge area for guests to en­joy Mar­ti­nis or Af­ter­noon Tea.

For busi­ness trips, The Study is a fresh and con­tem­po­rary place to meet. The room is filled with in­di­vid­u­ally se­lected fur­ni­ture, and of­fers ho­tel guests com­pli­men­tary com­puter and print­ing fa­cil­i­ties. Mean­while, White­hall can be dressed and lit in a va­ri­ety of ways to suit a board­room style meet­ing, a the­atre style meet­ing, a deca­dent pri­vate din­ner or a cock­tail re­cep­tion.

As is es­sen­tial for the mod­ern busi­ness trav­eler, the ho­tel of­fers a gym­na­sium on the lower-ground floor for guests to use, with fit­ness equip­ment in­clud­ing a Pow­erPlate ma­chine and multi-func­tional Ki­ne­sis sta­tion.

In other words, this is a ho­tel that has you cov­ered for work, rest and play when you’re next in Lon­don.
