The best hotels for sex

The Hoxton Holborn

Hotels Boutique hotels Holborn

This charming little hotel might seem unassuming at first – good rates, free wifi, a confusing name – the whole shebang. But it has one special feature that makes it perfect for whirlwind romances: its day stay option. Check in at 10am and check out at 4pm. It’s likely available for photo shoots or to give hurried business folk somewhere to set up base for the day, but let’s not pretend you can’t find a much better use for it.

Shangri-La Hotel at The Shard, London

Hotels London Bridge

You know the Shangri-La. It’s the one in that big spikey building with the crazy views. The rooms themselves might not exactly be the most romantic around (think sleek rather than sexy), but the novelty of getting it on so high up that you'll receive an honorary membership to the Mile High Club is just too tempting to pass up. And check out the size of those windows! Sure, there’s exhibitionism, but this is something else.


Rafayel Hotel & Spa

Hotels Boutique hotels Battersea

The Rafayel makes the cut for one very particular, 550-square-foot reason: the Emperor Suite. That room comes not only with a glorious view of the Thames and a floor-to-ceiling window to enjoy it with, but also a Jacuzzi bathtub surrounded by mirrors. It’s not too difficult to figure out the intention there, is it?

W London

Cinemas Leicester Square

Each and every room at the W oozes cool. From the decor to the lighting to the undeniably hip cocktail bar overlooking Leicester Square. There’s nowhere better to stay if you’re looking to impress. They’ve also got a ‘Whatever/Whenever’ concierge service that prides itself on how far it’ll go to satisfy the demands of guests. Always worth looking into.

Michelle Grant

Sanctum Soho Hotel

Hotels Boutique hotels Soho

Book in at Sanctum's Junior Suite for a bit of slinky disco sexiness. There are mirrors just about everywhere, so you can admire your beautiful selves from many angles, and the bath tub, which is right by the bed, is uplit, abutted by a mirrored column and flanked by a voyeuristic shimmering silver curtain. Serious fun is the name of the game here. Elsewhere, there’s a rooftop bar and another room (Junior Deluxe) with big round bed.

The Marylebone Hotel

Hotels Marylebone

If hotting things up in front of the fire weren't so alluring, it wouldn't have become one of the ultimate romantic activities. Which is all well and good if you happen to have a working fireplace at home, but if you don't, you're going to need a hotel room with such an amenity. These may be in short supply, but they're out there, you just have to track them down. Look no further than The Marylebone, which has private fireplaces in its Terrace Suites. As the name suggests, these also come with wood-pannelled terraces offering unparalleled views across the city.


No.11 Cadogan Gardens

Hotels Boutique hotels Belgravia

The charming little boutique at 11 Cadogan Gardens will bring a sort of decadent je ne sais quoi to your night of passion. According to the hotel, each room has a different purpose – to charm, to lavish, attract, to indulge or, in the case of the Signature Suites, to relax. We can’t say much for the relaxation aspect but we can guarantee you’ll have never done the deed in a room quite like the opulent, antiques-laden, £1k/night Sloane Suite. Go on, splash some cash for your 'special' night out.
