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 noted designer Anouska Hempel.[1] The design of each of the 40 rooms and 10 apartments centered on minimalistic art and the color white. 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.[2] It was noted as a minimalist hotel.[3]
The hotel was sold in January 2013 to British Land before being demolished to make way for 18 luxury apartments ready for residing on the 3rd March 2016.
