PROPERTY FEATURES

The Premises 

The UK's first outpost by hippest of hoteliers André Balazs, luxurious-but-louche city stay Chiltern Firehouse is a siren call to cocktail-drinkers, dandy diners and lovers of London. The ravishingly revived red-brick fire station houses a Deco-twisted take on Victoriana, with a decadent bar, iconic dishes in the restaurant and staff so glamorous they could be mistaken for celebrity guests.

PACKING TIPS

Vinyl and sheet music, for playing in the bar during after-hours shenanigans (there's a late-night DJ in the bar Wednesday–Sunday, and an old black Joanna to tinkle when it's quiet).

ALSO

Smokers will enjoy finding their way 'through the looking glass' in the loos to a secret outdoor smoking space. All guests are welcome to attend the talks, screenings and other cultural happenings the hotel hosts.
Try time travel: spot the ornate, angular, bottle-green Swiss timepiece in reception.

Rooms 

Designed to feel like a guest room in an elegant private home, each Deco-detailed bedroom has hand-picked art, vintage photos and a smattering of idiosyncratic quirks. Bathrooms are decadent, with roll-top baths, walk-in rain showers, Hollywood mirror lights and lashings of chrome and marble. Some have shared access to a terrace. The Firehouse Suite is a super-spacious one-bedroom suite with loads of built-in wardrobes, a slick cocktail cabinet, dining area and separate toilet – ideal for entertaining or small drinks parties, it also has views over the courtyard garden below.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

The Firehouse restaurant – nightly scene of celebrity one-upmanship – is a brasserie meets Victorian factory affair, with a gleaming, brass-bolted extract hood, beneath which many-handed army of top chefs turns out restrained Mediterranean-flavoured menus (those crab donuts; monkfish cooked over pine, chargrilled Iberico pork). Keep your eyes peeled for the novelty cruet sets: porcelain pepper-pouring pugs and tabletop terriers appear come dinnertime.

Liquid Bliss 

In the Ladder Shed bar – a colonial lounge cum conservatory affair – plants trail from ceiling-suspended baskets and spring from weighty pots. Plant yourself on one of the emerald-green velvet chaises or deep bronze armchairs, or pull up a cane-backed stool at the sunken marble bar, where the mixologists' toolkit glints as prettily as a chandelier. Phials of house-made oil and extracts sitting on the bar give it the air of an apothecary: try the 'Hellfire Bitters' that spike jalapeno-laced signa

Experience the Extraordinary 

A short swagger from Marylebone's stylish shops and elegant eateries, Chiltern Firehouse is perfectly placed for capital forays. Needless to say, there's plenty to do, see and explore in this prime patch of London. Head east to the sophisticated distractions of Marylebone High Street; west for Baker Street's low-key buzz; north for Regent's Park, and south for Oxford Street and Mayfair's fashionable thoroughfares. A few steps along Chiltern Street, there are little cafés and quirky boutiques (including a woodwind workshop, should your oboe need attention). Don your deerstalker and sniff out the Sherlock Holmes museum (+44 (0)207 224 3688) – at 221b Baker Street, naturally – for some detective work, or follow the call of the wild to London Zoo (+44 (0)207 449 6200), a short stroll north through the park. Soak up some interiors inspiration at the Wallace Collection (+44 (0)207 563 9500) where five centuries worth of art, arms and accoutrements fill an historic Manchester Square townhouse.

Transportation 

Down a surprisingly quiet thoroughfare beyond Baker Street and amid Marylebone's best boutiques, bistros and design showrooms, Chiltern Firehouse has a fantastic central London location.

Planes 

London Heathrow is, traffic permitting, less than an hour’s drive away, though Gatwick, Stansted or City airports are all easily accessible.

Trains 

Nearest Tube stations are Baker Street to your north, or Bond Street to your south. Overland trains to the Chilterns and the West Midlands run from nearby London Marylebone; London Paddington trains connect you cross-country; Kings Cross trains will take you north and the Eurostar runs from St Pancras.

Automobiles 

Driving (and parking) in London can be a headache: why bother when taxis are plentiful, Tubes are practical and walking is pleasant?
