Sophisticated in their clean lines and thoughtful décor, Hotel Xanadu’s 46 guestrooms and suites feature neutral tones with red and chocolate-colored comforters and cushions adding welcome pops of color. Mini terra-cotta soldiers and hints of the exotic pay homage to the hotel’s Kublai-Khan inspiration, while leather-bound books and typewriter-themed wall art remembers Coleridge’s romantic poem of the 13th-century emperor. Deep mattresses and plush pillows promise a glorious sleep and the bathrooms have power showers, designer products, and fluffy towels.
Room service is available around the clock, and a laundry service can be requested, which is especially useful for longer stays. Check in using a tablet in one of the lobby’s comfortable sofas, and hire out an iPad for your stay. Contact the concierge to arrange a meet-and-greet service from London’s stations and airports. Lifts take you to the accessible rooms, one with a wet room, and the lobby is step-free from the street.
After serving English or continental breakfast, the trendy Tuk Tuk POP-UP switches its focus to a wide variety of chilled Asian beverages. Being in Ealing, you’re also close to some great national and independent eateries. Bill’s is around the corner on New Broadway, and locals recommend Polish Café Grove.
Tuk Tuk POP-UP – Tuk tuks are the successor to the earlier human-powered rickshaw, and are believed to get their somewhat out-of-the-ordinary name from the sound that the earliest engines made. The POP-UP has been designed to reflect this crazy and eclectic urban buzz.
Room service – Order room service to your guestroom or suite from 11 p.m.–7 a.m. Enjoy breakfast in bed or a tasty beverage over a movie and a Chinese beer in the evening.
Have the concierge arrange an in-room spa treatment or make your way to Eden Fitness, a partner to the hotel, just a five-minute walk away. For a small fee, you can use all of the facilities and choose one of its 50 classes, whether that means a workout in the open-plan gym on the latest equipment or joining a yoga and Pilates session in the fitness studio. There’s also a pool, sauna, and steam room to recuperate in afterwards. The hotel is also home to a library, so check out its collection.
Hire one of the hotel’s bikes and start exploring the capital. Visit the fabulous Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew and the Temperate House, the largest Victorian glasshouse in the world with more than 10,000 plants. If shopping is your thing, nearby Westfield Shopping Centre has five floors of luxury, lifestyle, and designer stores. For a more traditional shopping experience, Harrods, the most famous department store in the world, is just two blocks from iconic Hyde Park.

London Heathrow Airport is 7 mi / 11 km away.
London Gatwick Airport is 50 mi / 80 km.
