Completed in 1905, the building occupied by L'oscar London was once the headquarters of the Baptist church. It was severely damaged by a bomb during World War II but eventually closed down because the congregation dwindled. Luckily for all us hotel aficionados, the building underwent successful restoration and is now back in use as a luxury hotel.
A hotel housed in a former church is always a winning concept but L'oscar London is truly killing it with their sinners and saints theme. When piety and indulgence are combined, you get a truly exciting mix and the team behind the hotel know it. In the words of the creator of L’oscar, Duncan Shakeshaft, “A hotel is essentially a theatre, with staff and guests playing their parts. It is a performance of the utmost quality, with every detail considered for the enjoyment of the guest and to enhance the harmony of the whole.”
The bedrooms are designed with great attention to detail. The art and design elements were specifically selected for each room to fit its unique character and reflect the atmosphere of the hotel. The most impressive space is the L'oscar Suite which features historic plastered ceiling and wonderful silk wallpaper, truly taking the indulgence and piety crossover to another level.
