First look: inside COMO Metropolitan London’s stunning luxury Hertford Street residences

by James Wilkinson

One of Britain’s leading hotels, COMO Metropolitan London, has relaunched its Hertford Street Residences, which offer apartment-style living just a stone’s throw from the hotel’s iconic Park Lane location in Mayfair, following an extensive investment program.

Situated in one of London’s most sought-after areas, the residences exude timeless style, combined with touches of contemporary design, vibrant colour, and cutting-edge technology.

The serene aesthetic feels a world away from the bustling streets of Mayfair and create the perfect ambience for guests seeking relaxation after a day working or exploring the capital.

Whilst the outside of the building radiates the classic charm of a Mayfair townhouse, the interiors offer a fresh contemporary feel.

A new epitome of understated luxury, the stylish two and three-bedroom apartments have been interior-designed by Linzi Coppick of Forme UK.

The bright and airy apartments feature open plan living and dining areas, separate kitchens with marble countertops, natural wood floors, spacious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and glass doors leading out onto a cosy, private patio – a rarity in central London and perfect for the summer months.

Abundant natural daylight floods the residences from large windows, contributing to the sense of warmth and sophistication.

Striking art pieces by Spanish artist Moyra Montoya Moyano adorn the walls and add personality to the space by introducing a pop of colour to an otherwise relaxing, neutral colour palette of whites, creams, and greys.

Coppick has successfully combined COMO’s signature pared-back aesthetic with a comforting air, exuberating a ‘home from home’ feeling, which will ensure utmost comfort for longer-term guests.

Those staying in the COMO Metropolitan Residences, Hertford Street, benefit from the five-star facilities and world-class service of COMO Metropolitan London, situated a short walk-away on Park Lane.

Guests can enjoy access to the hotel’s holistic wellbeing sanctuary, COMO Shambhala Urban Escape, offering signature treatments and sessions with renowned experts in reflexology, Reiki, Pilates and more.

A COMO tablet in every residence offers 24/7 access to in-room-dining and the hotel’s knowledgeable concierge team.

Those who love music can enjoy the custom-fitted Bose sound system with personalised mood-boosting playlists by COMO Metropolitan London’s Music Concierge.

Set in the iconic Mayfair neighbourhood, opposite Hyde Park, the residences allow prime access to some of London’s most iconic landmarks, including Grosvenor Square, representing the apex of Georgian society, and Berkeley Square, with its exclusive restaurants and bars.

Shopping enthusiasts can pay a visit to world-famous retailers and designer fashion houses peppered across Bond Street or explore Savile Row’s tailors’ ateliers.

A stone’s throw from the COMO Metropolitan Residences, Hertford Street, the high-end Burlington Arcade and Shepherd Market invite guests to discover a cluster of independent boutiques and handcrafted British goods.

An overnight stay starts from approximately £2,000 (AU$3,482) per night and the rate includes maid-service, and access to a 24hour concierge.
