Feeling fruity? Try one of three of the best hotels in London for sex. Seriously, if you are in the mood then why not whip up a sexy weekend with your loved one!
Okay, there are definitely some hotels that are better at getting you in the mood than others. So, here’s the obvious question: what makes a hotel good for hanky-panky? Well, it depends on your taste, obviously, not everyone is into the same thing, you know. Lots of things can make you want to pounce on someone; sleazy décor, mirrored ceilings, romantic views. And not forgetting, of course, last-minute booking.
London is, unsurprisingly, full of uber-sexy hotels. From the City to Soho, whether it’s for a spontaneous hook-up or just a generally hot 'n' steamy night, a British firm has done a deep dive on where’s best to shack up. So here you have it, without further ado: London’s best three hotels for sex. Don't forget to let them know their Uber is waiting outside...
They know, the actual logistics of booking a room don't sound very sexy at all – but it is. It really, really is. The Hoxton Holborn makes this list because you can book it for the daytime. You can check in at 10am and check out at 4pm, so it's a prime spot for a spontaneous whirlwind fling. And aside from that? It's a pretty decent spot (even if you're just there for the afternoon). The Hoxton is affordable, has free wifi and its rooms are very tastefully decorated. But yeah, it's that day-stay perk that really cements it on this list.
Mood? Contemporary design. Location perks? Super central, with Covent Garden and Soho a stone's throw away for late-night shenanigans. Budget range? Very well priced for central London.
No.11 Cadogan Gardens - Belgravia.
This charming boutique at 11 Cadogan Gardens Hotel & Apartments will bring the sort of decadence that'll get sparks flying. How often do you get to feel like a sexy Louis XVI? Bring some decadent je ne sais quoi to your night of passion, as each room has a different purpose – to charm, lavish, attract, indulge or, in the case of the Signature Suites, to relax. Maybe you won't be doing much relaxing, but you’ll have never done the deed in a room quite like the opulent, antiques-laden Sloane Suite. If you have that kind of cash, then start splashing for a 'priceless' night out. They're jealous.
Mood? Alluring luxury. Location perks? Walking distance from Sloane Square – although your boutique bedroom may keep you snuggled up a little longer. Budget range? On the pricey side.
Shangri-La Hotel at The Shard, London.
The Shangri oh-la-la in the London Bridge area is easily up there with some of the city's steamiest hook-up locations. Don't know which one it is? You'll recognize it by the spikey structure and crazy views instantly. While the rooms themselves may not make you want to get hot and heavy, they're more sleek than sultry, and the novelty of being so far high means you'll receive an honorary membership to the Mile High Club. Now that's way too tempting to pass up. And check out the size of those windows! Yes, there's exhibitionism – but this is something else.
Mood? Main character energy. Location perks? It's The Shard – pretty spectacular all round really. Budget range? Exaggerated
Have a great day!
