Breaking the bank: Top 5 most expensive London hotels

If you want to have a night that neither you – nor your wallet – will forget, be sure to stay in any of these celebrity hotspots. Dubbed as five of the most expensive hotels available in London, these venues are the epitome of style and elegance, followed by a hefty bill at the end of it all.

The Berkeley

Naturally, most of the expensive hotel rooms on offer are located in Knightsbridge, but the Berkeley takes things to a whole other level. With its marble-coated bathrooms and spectacular design, this five-star hotel has a hefty client list and an even heftier price tag. Celebs such as Madonna, Leonardo DiCaprio and Guy Ritchie have all been spotted here. And if these names do not tickle your fancy, the views above Hyde Park surely will.

Claridge's

This luxury hotel in Mayfair, Westminster, is stunning in itself, but for those wanting to splash the cash, try your hand at the Brook Penthouse Suite. Large dressing rooms, lilac decor and marble bathrooms make up this suite, so it is no surprise that designer Marc Jacobs often spends the night here. If not, you may also catch a randomer from Made in Chelsea on any given Tuesday night.

The Langham

The Infinity Suite may cost a staggering £5,000 a night, but trust us when we say that this spot is worth it – this is the only room in London that features a bath which also acts as a spa. The chromatherapy facility on the bath is combined with hydrotherapy to offer a full skin-clearing experience. This is so good that big names such as Colin Farrell and Angelina Jolie have even given it a go.

The Mandarin Oriental

Dating back to the early 20th century, this Edwardian-style spot has 198 rooms to boast, while the venue has been given a modern transformation with newly-designed bars and restaurants. Many movie stars and models have often been attracted to the yellow and green colour scheme, while the late Baroness Margaret Thatcher often enjoyed views of Hyde Park here.

The Lanesborough

Located smack bang in the middle of Knightsbridge, it is hardly a surprise that this five-star hotel is a major tourist hub. It is now the most expensive hotel in London, with the Royal Suite setting you back a mammoth £14,000 a night. Usually a favourite among politicians and celebrities of all kinds, such as Jim Carrey and Madonna, this place is not for the faint-hearted.

These venues may do wonders for hospitality jobs, but they are also perfect for a truly lavish evening away. Of course, it is not recommended that you give these a go if you are not financially stable, but if you want a luxurious escape from reality, and want to spot a big name in the flesh, you don't get much fancier than these lot.
