The Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street and Monmouth Kitchen
November 4, 2017
London truly is a nightmare when it comes to finding a good hotel. Three stars is usually an experience which would be just fine elsewhere, whereas in London you truly get what you pay for. In London three-star hotels are just not an option if you want a somewhat pleasant experience. Enter The Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street. It is a four-star deluxe hotel in cosy Covent Garden’s Seven Dials – a village within a city within a city, to try to explain the atmosphere of the surrounding area.
The hotel is a quintessential West End rendezvous which effortlessly blends in with the boutique appeal of its neighbourhood. This is a chic retreat on the doorstep of London’s most celebrated theatres, conveniently located for first timers or experienced visitors to London.
Its beautifully-designed rooms are equipped with next-generation technology, ensuring total comfort and convenience. Hip as the streets that surround it and a bar alive with locals, this place feels real, relaxed and rooted in its community. The newly-transformed ground floor has become a relaxed, ambient breakout area where you can catch up with some work or sip on a coffee with friends while watching the world go by.
The seventh and top floor of Radisson Blu Edwardian, Mercer Street is home to eight luxury suites, each individually designed with their own personalities and Candid had the pleasure of staying in Suite 707, which very much goes with our personality indeed with its crisp, contemporary yet glamourous interiors.
Overlooking fashionable Seven Dials with marble bathrooms and triple aspect windows, the suites provide a calm and opulent environment to unwind in, with what is to be considered the ultimate in luxury – a separate dressing area.
The Radisson Blu Edwardian, Mercer Street also hosts a culinary treat, Monmouth Kitchen, which embraces the art of shared dining right in the heart of Seven Dials. It evokes an ambience to recreate the culinary delights of the Mediterranean and South America.
With a separate entrance to the hotel, Monmouth Kitchen has been thoughtfully refurbished and stands proud as a popular tapas kitchen in its own right.
With a stylish bar area leading through to the main restaurant, the black and white furnishings add to the industrial feel.
Architectural brick partitions cleverly divide the dining areas, without compromising on light or space, and the different table levels create an open feel, with a view onto Covent Garden’s cobbled streets.
At Monmouth Kitchen you can discover a contemporary selection of Italian and Peruvian small plates, complemented with the nest wines and their signature cocktails, which are a must-have, with ingredients that even our seasoned gourmands had not encountered before.
