When it comes to staying in central London, luxury comes in many forms – and Number 5 Maddox Street is a great case in point. This is not a hotel with an in-house bar or restaurant. It doesn’t have a buzzing lobby scene. There isn’t even a lift. Instead, it is an oasis of family-friendly comfort in a superb location that the kids will love.
Indeed, the suites have an element of a fairytale about them, with two and three-bedroom self-catering accommodation that is designed with the kids in mind. Those seeking a two-bedroom bunk-up can choose from the Mezzanine Loft Suite and the Terrace Loft Suite, while the three-bedroom Bartlett Suite sleeps up to six people. With all these suites having balconies, they will truly be a home from home.
Everything families could wish for is here. For babies there are facilities like a changing mat, high chairs and a baby bath, while toddlers can also enjoy puzzles and CBeebies on the telly. Add to that the array of books, puzzles, pens and paper and board games for older kids, and there is plenty to keep youngsters of all ages entertained – and that is before even mentioning the DVD collection.
Each room comes with its own mini-bar and the extensive concierge service includes babysitting. There is also Wi-Fi, satellite TV and a chance to enjoy spa and beauty treatments. All that may make people wonder if they want to venture outside – but not for very long. For a start, Hamleys is just down the road, so the kids will be sure to want a visit. But with the hotel being located in Mayfair, all the delights of West End shopping and theatres are close at hand.
Indeed, with Hyde Park, Trafalgar Square, the London Eye, Madame Tussauds and so much more nearby, Number 5 Maddox Street is an ideal base to tour London. Add to that the fact Oxford Circus Underground Station is just a short walk away, and exploring the capital could hardly be easier.
