Hotel Xenia in London joins Great Hotels of the World

The 99-bedroom Hotel Xenia, which opened on the site of the former two-star Majestic hotel in London's South Kensington yesterday, has joined the Great Hotels of the World marketing consortium.

Owned by Metmix, headed by chief executive Hassanain Al-Nakeeb, the Victorian property on Cromwell Road has undergone a £9m refurbishment. It includes what is believed to be the first suite in London with a Turkish bath and tablet computers in each bedroom.

The hotel's restaurant Evoluzione is featuring a healthy take on Italian cooking inspired by nutritionist Chiara Manzi, including a three-course menu for under 800 calories.

Head chef is Pasquale D'Ambrosio and general manager is Mario Ovsenjak.

The hotel is joining Great Hotels of the World's Premium Collection, alongside other UK properties such as Hazlitts in Soho, London, the Rookery in Clerkenwell and the Old Swan and Minster Mill in Minster Lovell, Oxfordshire. Room rate starts from £123.50." target="_blank" rel="noreferrer">Design-led Xenia hotel to open in South Kensington >>](
