The dark colours violet, red, blue and gold run through the whole hotel with a royal flair and create a charming, extraordinary impression with peacock feathers and amber birds.

The hotel has 39 bedrooms, 2 restaurants and a bar. The rooms are equipped with a flat screen TV, a desk, a sitting area and a private bathroom. All rooms are air-conditioned and have free WiFi access. All have marble bathrooms, free Wi-Fi, rainforest showers, Roja Dove bath products and a yoga mat.

Café l’oscar: Inspired by Venice’s oldest café, this glamorous casual restaurant and bar on the ground floor of the hotel is a tempting place to rendezvous, enjoy a glass of wine or a relaxed meal at any time of day. You can also order a late dessert with your drink at the illuminated onyx bar. The splendour of the bar and the mirrored ceiling blend with original art to create an enchanting atmosphere. Guests can enjoy breakfast a la carte or as a Full English Breakfast, while the hustle and bustle behind the large windows passes them by.
Baptist Grill: The large octagonal, two-storey dome in the Edwardian Chapel of the building provides the setting for a unique dining experience.

Led by renowned chef Tony Fleming, the restaurant serves seasonal British flavours, including super-heated charcoal grilled dishes.
