Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street & Monmouth Kitchen

Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street & Monmouth Kitchen

Travel

Ärligt talat är London en riktig mardröm när det kommer till att hitta bra hotell. 3 stjärnor skulle i vanliga fall funka i vilket civiliserat land som helst, men inte här om man inte vill ha mögel längs väggarna och diverse andra otrevligheter. Man får helt enkelt vad man betalar för. 3-stjärniga hotell är helt enkelt inte värda pengarna (även de kan vara fruktansvärt dyra här). Gå snäppet högre upp och du får genast en trevligare upplevelse. The Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street är ett 4-stjärnigt lyxhotell i ett av Londons mysigaste områden, Covent Garden och ännu närmare preciserat i Seven Dials village. En by inom staden som i sin tur är inom staden. Helt olikt London, men ändå så in i benmärgen London.

Hotellet är det perfekta stället för en musikalweekend i London då det ligger i det musikaltäta området West End och boutiquehotellet passar perfekt in i närmiljön i samma stil. Det här är ett ytterst chict hotell nära till i stort sett allt vare sig du är förstagångsbesökare eller en van Londonresenär.

Hotellets vackra rum är utrustade med avancerad teknologi för den ultimata komforten och bekvämligheten man önskar sig under en vistelse. Hotellet i sig är lika coolt som området det befinner sig i med hippa (inte att förväxla med Hipsters) barer, caféer, butiker, konstgallerier, med mera och passar perfekt in i gatubilden och du kommer att känna av den underbara atmosfären på detta genuina hotell med båda fötterna fast förankrade i sin stadsdel. Nyrenoverade bottenvåningen har blivit en mötesplats för såväl turister som Londonbor som antingen sätter sig ner för en fika och kollar in folk som passerar eller svarar på några mail medan de dricker något värmande.

 

Sjunde och därmed översta våningen på Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street huserar 8 sviter i varsin unik stil och jag hade nöjet att få bo i svit 707 som med sin skandinaviskt nedtonade, moderna, men ändå lyxiga inredning passade mig som handen i handsken.

Utsikten från rummet är makalöst och man ser 180 grader om inte mer av staden och du kan skymta allt från London Eye till Harry Potter-pjäsen (som jag såg ett tag sedan, rekommenderas starkt). Sviten har utöver en himmelsk säng även ett område för avkoppling och för att öka lyxen ytterligare finns ett separat rum i sviten där man kan byta om och spegla sig innan man beger sig ut.

Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street härbärgerar i sina lokaler även en kulinarisk pärla, Monmouth Kitchen, som tar dig på en resa till både Medelhavet och Sydamerika genom det så för området karakteristiska ”dela bord” filosofin där man helt enkelt sitter vid samma bord med andra människor och efter några timmar har man en ny bekant bredvid sig om det sig så vill.

Med en separat ingång från själva hotellet, har Monmouth Kitchen helrenoverats och är en av de bästa tapasrestaurangerna i stan.

Med en stilig bar som leder till själva restaurangen syftar den svarta och vita inredningen till att skapa en industriell atmosfär, dock med flärd.

Arkitektoniska tegelväggar delar snyggt och smart upp restaurangen i olika områden, utan att för den delen vare sig kompromissa med ljus eller yta och att borden befinner sig på olika höjder skapar en känsla av en öppen yta, med utsikt rakt ut mot Covent Gardens kullerstensgator.

På restaurangen hittar man en delikat tvådelad meny där den ena består av italienska tapasrätter, medan den andra bjuder på lite mer kryddiga smårätter från peru. Lägg därtill de bästa vinerna och deras specialcocktails så är du en matupplevelse av rang rikare.

    Dear ( My) Tommy,
    This was completely a pleasure to read! Such a lovely way to relax, dream and plan this evening. I’m completely captivated by the ambience and overall luxuriousness of The Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street. I can see why it is considered 4 star. I definitely need to experience this wonderful place at Covent Garden’s Seven Dials Villiage. Love it’s boutique appeal and the way you described it all is perfect!! The pictures are beautifully styled and I loved seeing 707, which, yes, is crisp contemporary yet glamorous ( exactly like you) and of course I know I could never resist the Italian and Peruvium small plates!!! This is all going to be saved for a future journey 🙂
    Thank you so much,
    Love ( Your) Jenny

    I realized when I went to Europe this summer, 3 star hotels sometimes just don’t cut it haha so I agree with you there. This hotel is simply amazing, and if I were to stay here on a trip to London, I know for a fact I will have a fabulous time there. I’m definitely bookmarking this one for a future trip. Thanks for such a thorough review with beautiful photos 🙂

    I was just in London about a month ago and fell in love with the Covent Garden area! This hotel looks so modern and chic and a truly wonderful place to stay. When it comes to hotels location is crucial and the fact it’s near the West End and Covent Garden is key! The suite looks so spacious and I’m in love with the marble bathroom! And can we talk about the good at Monmouth?! The presentation is impeccable and it looks so delicious too. I love both Italian and Peruvian food so I know I would love this place. Definitely have to try it the next time I’m in London as well as check into this beautiful Radisson Hotel! Xoxo, Christine

    Okay, thanks for sharing that 3 star hotels are no bueno in London! Here in the states, I tend to stick with 3 star hotels and up and never usually have any issues. One thing I have noticed is that all Radissons I’ve stayed in are really nice! I love how Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street has those luxury suites to truly make you feel at home. It definitely seems like your style 🙂 I sure wouldn’t mind some of that Italian food in the kitchen either!

    Radisson Blu looks like a chic and modern hotel. I know that it can be tricky to find a good 3-star hotel, most of the times you can hardly give them 2 stars ahaha. But this one is something different. Rooms are spacious and clean, everything looks new and cozy. I also like the reception area so much!

Those suites are HUGE and look so comfy! And don’t get me started on Monmouth Kitchen. I’m getting so hungry just looking at your pics. It looks like a great place to grab a bite or drink with friends. Looks like you had a great stay! If I ever make it back to London…

    The Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street looks absolutely marvelous! I feel like this is much nicer then some of the 5 star hotels I’ve recently stayed at in the U.S. The interior is very true to my taste and the suit exudes true luxury. The clean marble in the bathroom is quite lovely as well. I love the entire feel of the town within a town! Monmouth kitchen look divine! The images you took of the cocktails truly bring the to life! I’d love to experience Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street!

I am going back to England in a few weeks and I will definitely have to check out The Radisson Blu Edwardian hotel! This 4 star looks like a 5! The Monmouth Kitchen also looks superb. I like how it embraces the art of shared dining! The decor, food and drinks also look amaze!

    Hey Thomas,
    How are you? I loved this! Hotel reviews are some of my favorite things to read about because they are a great way to see other people’s point of view in a good place where you can stay while you are on vacation. And I totally know what you mean, I went to London a few years ago during the summer and finding a vacant hotel was almost impossible. I would love love to go back sometime soon and I would definitely keep this in mind. I love the entire look of this place. It has that kind of look that almost makes you feel like you’re at home and it makes your stay a lot more enjoyable. The food for sure had me drooling! Those small plates look so tasty. Thank you so much for sharing I loved reading all about your stay!

    I think hotel reviews on blogs are really great as they are much more detailed then a travel site and with your fabulous pictures you can really tell that you’re going to have a comfortable stay.
    I like to stay in nice hotels when I’m traveling because I really think that it makes the experience much more pleasant.
    Bathrooms are really important to me and not just in my home but especially on vacations and you had me at marble bathroom!
    Those small plates look delish too.

    The Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street does not look like a 4-star hotel as all!! It has such a grand entrance, and the rooms, omg, they look so Glam and Luxury! True British style. Covent Garden is such a darling and tranquil neighborhood, and it would be my first choice of location to stay in London. It’s close to all the nice shopping areas and the restaurants. I will definitely check out The Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street next time when I go visit London.
