If there’s one thing London isn’t short of, it’s places to stay. There are so many dotted around the city, each designed with a different kind of traveller in mind. From luxurious getaways in the city centre to tiny boutique boltholes, there’s something for each and every curious city dweller. Sometimes, if you’re travelling in a group, with your family or with someone you might need to care for, you’ll require more space than just one single hotel room, which is where adjoining rooms come in handy. Here’s our rundown of the best hotels in the city that cater to those who need connecting rooms.

Treehouse Hotel London
First up on our list of hotels in London with adjoining rooms is Treehouse Hotel in Marylebone. When a hotel has been built around the nostalgia of climbing a tree as a child, you know it will be a pleasant place to stay, and that’s exactly the ethos surrounding Treehouse Hotel. This stylish bolthole in Marylebone oozes character; think wood panelling, statement patterned carpets, and hanging plants galore. Rooms are comfortable and bright, located high amidst the city skyline, complete with tall windows for epic views and plenty of natural light. There are various rooms to choose from, from top-floor king rooms to twin lookout rooms. There are also a couple of options for those who want to book adjoining rooms, including connecting skyline Queen rooms and the spacious connecting clubhouse suite and lookout twin, which comes with views of the BT Tower and 20 Fenchurch Street (otherwise known as the Walkie Talkie building).

The Clermont Hotel
This grand railway hotel (built as a status symbol for affluent railway firms in the 1800s) was originally constructed in 1862 as the Grosvenor Hotel but later became The Clermont. This Baroque-style, Grade-II listed hotel takes inspiration from the cultural French Renaissance movement, decorated with sculpted heads, gold-topped columns, stately chandeliers and extravagant staircases, and is one of our favourite hotels in London with adjoining rooms. It’s located moments from Victoria Station, meaning that from here it’s easy to explore everything surrounding the Queen’s Gallery, Westminster Abbey, King’s Road in Chelsea (great for luxe shopping) and the West End. Rooms come in different categories, all spacious and stylish, with railway station pictures pasted on the walls. There’s also a range of larger rooms that can sleep up to four people comfortably, with the option to request adjoining rooms for those who need even more space.

The Henrietta Hotel
If you want a boutique base in the heart of Covent Garden, look no further than The Henrietta Hotel, a small London hotel with adjoining rooms available. Inspired by the area’s extensive history, with a few Italian design inspirations here and there, is home to 40 bedrooms decorated (by French interior designer Dorothee Meilichzon) in pink and blue hues with outlandish touches; think multi-layered headboards and vintage-style bathrooms with statement black and white flooring. Choose from standard rooms overlooking Henrietta Street, which come with a queen-size bed and rainfall showers, to superior rooms with queen or king-size beds and a freestanding tub or rainfall shower. There’s also the option to request interconnecting rooms for those travelling in groups or requiring more space.

With a hotel that has been named after a hallucinogenic plant, you probably won’t be surprised to hear that inside, things get a little trippy. The decor is more than eccentric, with faux-Renaissance paintings, taxidermied mythical creatures and plush velvet sofas set against the jet-black flooring of the dimly-lit lobby. There’s a spiritual well-being concierge service devoted entirely to the belief that the soul needs to be nourished just as much as we care for the mind and body. The roster is inspired by rituals from all around the world and includes healing sessions, crystal sound baths, guided meditation and morning yoga sessions. There are 33 sleek and luxurious bedrooms, including three suites and an award-winning penthouse with a huge marble-encased bed and a six-person jacuzzi with a retractable roof. There are two interconnecting rooms for those looking to travel with a group of their family, though it’s worth noting that this hotel hasn’t really been designed with children in mind.

If you’ve strolled around Old Street, you’ve likely spotted the diamond-shaped, glittering Montcalm East building, which sort of resembles an optical illusion. This stylish hotel is more than just a place to rest your head; it’s a creative hub showcasing artworks made in London and is a nod to the creative renaissance of Shoreditch in the ‘80s and ‘90s. It’s decked out with cutting-edge artwork and a rotating roster of British photography exhibitions. There are 288 rooms across eight categories, all drenched in natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows, with the option to book interconnecting family rooms and rooms with sofa beds.
