The Hempel Hotel was a luxury 5-star hotel in London, England. It was located at 31-35 Craven Hill Gardens to the north of Hyde Park off Bayswater Road. It was a small boutique hotel with Zen inspiration, designed by Anouska Hempel.[1] The design of each of the 40 rooms and 10 apartments centered on minimalistic art and the color white,[2] and it also featured a zen garden.

The hotel was a favourite of Victoria Beckham and of Michael Jackson, who reserved the entire hotel during a stay there in 2006.[3]

The hotel was sold in January 2013 to British Land before being demolished to make way for 18 luxury apartments, opened in 2016.
