With a name inspired by one of London’s landmarks — Marble Arch — it’s apparent from the beginning that there will be a very distinctive British heritage ambience at The Arch London United Kingdom.
The hotel boasts a highly sought after central London postcode on a peaceful street and a glamorous, indulgent ambience designed to evoke the comfort of your own home. Hyde Park, Oxford Street shopping and the exclusive area of Marylebone are all within easy reach of The Arch London United Kingdom.
Look & Feel
Acclaimed London interior designers RDD updated The Arch London United Kingdom with an offbeat concept that embellishes the buildings’ original Georgian heritage with an industrial-style edge. While it may seem quite a challenge to convert seven separate townhouses and two mews homes into one modern hotel, you would never know it from the results. A cosy, romantic and vibrant mood resonates throughout with colourful, captivating décor while original modern British artworks bring a cool, funky and exciting flavour, not least with New Shoes — the two-metre high Technicolor silhouette that welcomes guests in the entrance hall. This contrasts beautifully with the original architectural features such as hidden staircases that were retained during renovation thanks to the Grade II listed status of the buildings.
Fireplaces, rustic-style furniture, bright, detailed patterns, warm colours and hand-printed statement wallpaper create unique design hubs of the 82 bedrooms, across which there are a total of 12 different colour schemes. Comfort is key, with top quality materials and sprawling granite bathrooms that come complete with flat screen TVs above the bath and natural toiletries from a family-owned apothecary. The hotel frequently invests time and capital into the décor to retain the fresh, quirky look that is so unique in this part of the city.
“Original modern British artworks bring a funky, cool and exciting flavour to the mix.”
The key appeal of The Arch London United Kingdom comes not just in its ability to instantly make guests feel at ease but also in its generosity. The thoughtful list of complimentary amenities includes Nespresso coffee machines and Jing Tea facilities in every room and a film library with Oscar-winning movies from the past half-century. The main restaurant, Hunter 486, offers hearty British fare with enticing add-ons including a bar with pressed tin ceiling and open plan kitchen with wood fired oven. The Martini Library completes this central style hub with afternoon tea featuring sweet and savoury éclairs in flavours such as wild strawberry and Veuve Cliquot or crab and crème fraîche.
The Arch’s owner Rafi Bejerano recalls the early inspiration for the hotel’s inception, when his father, Abraham, would drive past the current site at Great Cumberland Place every day on the way home from work. Rafi recalls him saying what a fantastic setting the quiet, leafy, central street would make for a hotel. The company was granted planning permission in 2004 and building work started in 2007. The hotel opened in 2010 and despite being introduced into the market during the recession, the Arch proved an instant hit.
