Signature Suites at COMO Metropolitan London offer spectacular views over lush Hyde Park to the east of the property. The hotel is located on one of the most significant thoroughfares in London, Park Lane, with the city’s most renowned neighbourhoods within a short walk. Tucked away behind the hotel is Shepherds Market, which has a vibrant mix of galleries, restaurants and bars.

When the hotel opened in 1997, it was among the capital’s first to embrace a contemporary design vision. The core philosophy? To strip back the non-essential elements of a traditional English hotel, creating something cool but accessible. Whilst the internal spaces have been revitalised with fresh palettes of natural hues and textures to complement neighbouring Hyde Park, it’s still retained its timeless soul and ethos.

As with all COMO Hotels and Resorts, cuisine is a key element. At COMO Metropolitan London’s Nobu restaurant, executive chef Mark Edwards heads up a kitchen that’s become a favourite with Londoners and those travelling through, serving an original mix of Peruvian-Japanese cuisine.

Healthy COMO Shambhala Cuisine is also available from the Met’s kitchen. This singular approach to cooking — using mostly raw foods, avoiding dairy as much as possible and focusing on organic produce — is available on lobby menus, breakfast menus and via room service.

Providing a counterpoint to this urban energy, COMO Metropolitan London’s COMO Shambhala Urban Escape is designed for guests seeking greater health through yoga and holistic treatments. There’s a fully equipped gym, six treatment rooms — including two rooms for couples — and steam rooms. Guests can also continue keeping in shape while they’re in their rooms since the hotel has a dedicated yoga and meditation channel; complimentary yoga mats are provided.

Guests can also take advantage of COMO Shambhala’s therapies, ranging from body treatments to facials and massages, delivered by experienced practitioners who customise treatments according to individual needs. Many of the therapies use COMO Shambhala products, made with pure organic essential oils and herbs.
