COMO the Halkin, London & what to do in the neighbourhood

Spring is upon us and London is the perfect place for an inspiring weekend. We will be staying at COMO the Halkin London, a well known name that reopened last autumn after a complete refurbishment. The boutique hotel has 41 contemporary suites with a lovely garden in the back and is within walking distance of everything you need to see. It is actually the perfect hotel for a weekend stay in the city, a hop, skip and a jump from Hyde Park in the leafy Belgravia area, giving you a break from the hustle and bustle.
