We feel instantly sophisticated when we step inside the Dean Street Townhouse. Perhaps it's the history of the building – it was once home to the Gargoyle Club, as frequented by Mr Fred Astaire – or the clip-clop of our heels on the wooden floors. As well as being a chic hotel, it's a great place to go for morning coffee. Pick up a newspaper, ease yourself into one of the squishy red banquettes and order from the delicious breakfast menu. You can't go wrong with a cappuccino and the exquisite Eggs Royale.
