With the introduction of Tanya’s, a raw food cafe, myhotel Chelsea has become a popular spot for the well groomed and well heeled Chelsea set to visit during the day. It has added a vital ‘local touch’ to the hotel.
Location, location, location... this small hotel is just around the corner from Bibendum, the famous Art Deco building originally built as a tire showroom by Michelin and subsequently converted by Terence Conran into one of the most iconic restaurants in London. myhotel Chelsea is also only a ‘stone's throw’ from the eclectic ‘one of a kind’ boutiques that have made Walton Street such a destination in its own right.
Tanya's is the healthy, raw food - feel good alternative to a traditional bar. It's a place where shiny-faced people imbibe freshly made juices. The idea is that you travel home feeling better than when you left.
The restaurant, called Pellicano, is on the raised ground floor in the corner of this former police station. The owner Marcello Vargiu is from Sardinia so you know the food, which is Italian, is going to be the real deal.
Situated in an Orangerie that was built into an internal courtyard, Tanya's, the raw food cafe, is blessed with an abundance of daylight; an essential ingredient in communicating a robust, healthy message.
Each and every room is different at myhotel Chelsea and the Geisha suite, with its Japanese proverb, hot pink satins and silks and silver Louis XV chairs, upholstered in Oriental florals, is probably the most romantic of all the rooms.
