No 10 Manchester Street

Boutique hotel in The West End

In a spiffing Edwardian town house, this 44-room stunner epitomises 'boutique hotel': print wallpaper, designer beiges and browns, splashes of gold, high-tech gadgetry (free smart phone for guest use) and impeccable service. Go for one of the four ground floor courtyard rooms with private terrace.

No 10 Manchester also prides itself on its humidor and outdoor heated lounge in the basement Cigars at No 10, where you can try one of 60 different types of cigars and cigarillos.
