Made Inn Chelsea

The Royal Borough’s own boutique hotel will see the launch of 25 new luxurious suites, bringing a modern edge to the otherwise opulent No.11 Cadogan Gardens.

No. 11 Cadogan Gardens is located just off Sloane Street in the heart of Chelsea. This enchanting urban hideaway is rather like indulging in an Alice in Wonderland trip, once through the entrance, red velvet swathed curtains surround the halls while a mirrored room conceals secret doorways.

Upon entry, you'll find a bar to your left; a distinctive, cool and theatrically decorated dark room which provides an ideal setting to relax, socialise and entertain. The cocktail menu is a fusion of tradition and innovation using exclusive vintages and limited edition champagnes, spirits and liqueurs. Cocktails can also be personalised to guest's individual tastes by the expert bartenders on hand.

To the right of the entrance lies an elegant drawing room complete with a comfortable and intimate library. The Lower Ground floor plays host to Tartufo, a new venture by renowned chef Alexis Gauthier, offering a menu of refined modern European cuisine as well as an eclectic selection of fine wines. Tartufo is spread over two main connected rooms, tastefully decorated with individual touches, such as period tea sets, art books and vintage prints by Jean Cocteau and cult Belgian illustrator Jean-Michel Fèlon, all offset with classic white linen, bold red menus and blue glass tableware. The gymnasium is also located on the lower ground floor with the latest Technogym equipment, machines, weights, ample floor space and a relaxation area.

The hotel's 54 guest rooms, including 19 suites, boast opulent individual styling, extensive space and bespoke furniture designs. Each is unique in its design and ambiance and many include glass chandeliers, bespoke prints or distinctive photography and artwork. Luxury toiletries by Ormonde Jayne, a bespoke perfume boutique just off Sloane Street, are provided in each marble bathroom.
