About Our London Hotel

An eccentric bunch of fun and friendly small hotels. Unexpectedly homely.

The original building, a public house, dates back to 1852 and was designed by the master planner Thomas Cubitt, who was renowned for creating the Belgravia and Pimlico neighbourhoods of London. We have carefully restored the building over a period of two years prior to launch in September 2014, sourcing artwork and individual pieces of furniture along the way.

Artist Residence is a 10 bedroom hotel in Pimlico just a 5-minute walk from Victoria Station, Belgravia and Sloane Square. On the ground floor the restaurant is called The Cambridge Street Cafe which is open all day serving breakfast through to dinner with an emphasis on fresh, seasonal produce. Downstairs there is a “secret” cocktail bar in the original pub cellar, a ping-pong room and comfy seating area & work space for guests to enjoy and relax in.

Awards and accolades include the ‘Top 100 hotels in Britain’ by the Sunday Times, ‘The Hot List 2015‘ by Conde Nast Traveller & ‘London Hotel of the Year‘ Cesar award by the Good Hotel Guide.

We hope that the building will once again be enjoyed by the local neighbourhood and guests alike.
