Luxury Hotels Kit Kemp in London

The charmingly down-to-earth couple, Tim and Kit Kemp, are two of the biggest names in luxury hotels in London today. Specializing in the renovation of boutique hotels and small luxury hotels, Kit’s eye for detail and charming self-taught interior design ideas make each of his luxury hotels unique. She describes her style as “eccentric English”! Drawing inspiration from art and sculpture, Kit Kemp makes good use of fabrics to add warmth and character to her boutique hotel designs.

Now word has spread across the pond and Firmdale Hotels’ latest project is the 75-room Crosby Street Hotel in New York’s Soho area.

Here are his 6 charming luxury hotels in London so far:

Haymarket Hotel

Mixing fresh, bold colors with chintzes and florals is what makes Kit Kemp’s boutique hotels in London truly memorable. Perfectly located next to the Theater Royal, its characteristic wildflowers and fresh, tasteful decor keep this boutique hotel deservedly busy.

Covent Garden Hotel

This mid-sized luxury hotel in the heart of the theater district hides behind a 19th-century shop front. The interior is brought to life in inimitable Kit Kemp style with pinstripe wallcovering and comfortable floral upholstery. The Covent Garden Hotel also has a 53-seat screening room.

Hotel Soho

Defined by a striking mural behind the bar, the Soho Hotel offers some of the best luxury hotel suites available in London. With boutique hotel service and five-star amenities, Kit Kemp’s elegant interior fits right in with full-height windows, velvet chairs, and granite bathrooms.

Charlotte Street Hotel

Offering a home away from home at this charming luxury hotel in London’s West End/Soho district, the striking ‘Bloomsbury Group’ art collection makes a focal point in the public areas of this elegant residence.

number 16

Tucked away comfortably on Sumner Place, this stylish boutique hotel blends into the neighborhood. Well located, beautifully designed in English country style and offering excellent concierge, valet and room service, Number 16 is the perfect weekend retreat.


One of London’s smaller Kit Kemp luxury hotels, with just 44 rooms, the Knightsbridge Hotel was on Condé Nast’s favorites list when it first opened. Traditional lounges, fireplaces and original works of art make this boutique hotel the huge success it has become.
