Advocates: London | The Eccleston Square Hotel

  • The Eccleston Square Hotel

It’s the London bolthole that put’s the iPad in manpad. The Eccleston Square Hotel, located in the über-chic burb of Belgravia is so overloaded with modernity; it’s said to be the most high-tech hotel in Europe. Rooms, inspired by super-yacht designs, feature every gadget from personal concierge iPads to 46-inch plasma TVs with 3D glasses, while en suites (stocked with all-you-can-lather L’Occitane products) are shrouded with glass walls which flick from clear to opaque by sensor-touch.

You should get a good night’s kip too. At £12000 a pop, the hotel’s Hästens beds, billed as “the best in the world”, come with built-in relaxation pulses. Just consider it your Swedish massage – on demand.

The details:; from £210/R3750 per night.
