11 Cadogan Gardens
11 Cadogan Gardens was built by Lord Chelsea in the late 19th century and originally comprised four separate Victorian town houses.
This helps explain the myriad of corridors, staircases and hallways throughout the hotel, and why it’s not uncommon to find a bemused guest wandering the corridors having taken a wrong turn.
With a fabulous location in such a prestigious area, the hotel became vastly popular as a home from home for travelling Victorian aristocrats, politicians and bon viveurs. In that progressive era, the area was known as something of a bohemian quarter, attracting notable personalities including radicals, artists and poets.
More recently 11 Cadogan Gardens was home to a private members club, and a sense of privacy and exclusivity remains. Their distinctive style is unparalleled and they are proud to serve their guests to the highest possible standards.
