L’Oscar London

The property of L’Oscar is a masterpiece of architectural brilliance and was designed by Jacques Garcia, a visionary renowned for his opulent creations.

L’Oscar’s Junior Suite Bell Tower

Garcia, celebrated for his work at Hôtel Costes in Paris and NoMad in New York, brought his distinctive touch to L’Oscar, transforming it from a Baptist church into a sanctuary of artistry and newfound stories. If past, present and future great artists have written a story together at a hotel, this would be it.

The Library – L’Oscar London

As I entered, I was captivated by the intricate details of the architecture – a seamless blend of neo-gothic and contemporary elements. Jacques’ tasteful genius was evident in every corner, from the soaring arches to the plush furnishings that exuded elegance.

The lobby, adorned with whimsical artworks, transported me to a world where creativity and luxury intertwined seamlessly. The history of the building, once a Baptist church, added a unique dimension to the decor, making my stay not just comfortable but also culturally rich. 

L’Oscar Restaurant

Situated in the vibrant neighborhood of Holborn, L’Oscar offered the perfect balance between tranquility and accessibility. The staff, with their warm hospitality, ensured that every moment of my stay was a delight. Their attention to detail and commitment to service made me feel like royalty.

One of the highlights of my stay was the indulgent high tea experience. The L’Oscar Restaurant, with its decadent menu curated by culinary maestros, surpassed all expectations. The black cod, a personal favorite, melted in my mouth like butter and honey, left an indelible mark on my palate. Must try! 

Each morning, my en-suite breakfast was a dance of flavors, it made me feel very pampered, as if one could rule the world from a bedroom, a perfect start to the day that brought the biggest smile on my face. The pampering continued with every interaction, making my stay here truly unforgettable. The property emanated soul – an intimate, decadent haven that captured the essence of true luxury.
