The world’s greatest hotel, as conceived by the world’s greatest hotelier. For over a century, The Ritz London has been the benchmark by which other hotels are measured. The Ritz has been home to the great and the good, the intelligentsia, the glitterati and thousands of discerning guests since 1906
Juxtaposed between the bustling metropolitan areas of Mayfair and St. James, which abound with luxury boutiques, art galleries and iconic attractions; and the tranquil emerald green expanse of Green Park.
My day at the Ritz was an interesting one. I had got a call from a close girlfriend who had booked it a few months prior. I attended the afternoon tea on a whim. I had always been meaning to attend the Ritz, after living in London for the past few years I should have gone there way sooner. I loved the gold tone Italian renaissance finishes in every room, and the Ritz didn’t visually disappoint in the slightest. The furnishings were exquisite and the customer service was of a very high standard. I’m a very blunt person so I will always give my most sincere opinion and speech on certain matters.
The experience of the tea was relaxing and the pianist was sublime. I have loved the piano since I was in the womb and for me there is nothing more soothing and soft like the keys played on a piano by someone who can play it well in such an opulent, dashing atmosphere. This was a great accompaniment to an afternoon tea. Despite all of this, I’ve had better quality in other five star hotels in terms of the quality of the food. The jasmine tea and champagne were great, it’s a shame the sandwiches and the desserts were pretty mediocre.
The experience was worth the money especially for someone/tourist who has never visited the hotel before let alone London. However, in terms of cost vs value of the food, not so much. I have a strong feeling the rooms and suites are way better. I’ll keep you posted as I do intend on staying here, but again emphasis on the wonderful experience. P.S The powder room for the ladies is super charming and feminine, I felt like I was in the late Princess Diana’s bathroom. I also think the dining room and the bar are lovely impressionable hangouts.
