Royal Park Views
Our beautiful Wellesley Penthouse can be enjoyed as a one, two or four bedroom option. With stunning views over Hyde Park, this is one of the most luxurious suites in London.
The building began its life as the Hyde Park Corner tube station, which was designed by Leslie Green. It closed in 1937, but the façade still remains as part of the hotel, and the ox-blood tiles used on the front of the building are the originals. The design by Fox Linton Associates acknowledges the potent association with the building’s decadent jazz musical legacy and has been beautifully restored with a modern take on the art-deco style.

The Wellesley is a 1920s townhouse beautifully restored with a modern take on the Art Deco style and with every modern convenience.
The hotel is named after Sir Arthur Wellesley, the first Duke of Wellington. He was a fine military leader who served as the Prime Minister of Great Britain twice between 1828 and 1834 and later as leader of the House of Lords. His statue stood atop the original Marble Arch commissioned by King George IV to commemorate victory in the Napoleonic Wars.
The building, which began its life as the Hyde Park Corner underground (Tube) station by architect Lesley Green, is also the former home of iconic jazz and cabaret venue, Pizza on the Park. It reopened as The Wellesley in December 2012 as an intimate luxury hotel.
The design by Fox Linton Associates acknowledges the potent association with the building’s decadent jazz musical legacy and has been beautifully restored with a modern take on the Art Deco style. It now offers contemporary luxury and traditional glamour in one of London’s most prestigious locations, immediately adjacent Hyde Park on Knightsbridge.
