Where the Royals Go: Bodo’s Schloss

When I was meeting my friends in London for dinner and drinks, I had just one request:

Take me where the royals go.

Cut to Wednesday night in London, when E.and I met up with my friend K. at an Alpine-themed restaurant on Kensington High Street called Bodo’s Schloss. The entrance to Bodo’s Schloss is, literally, next door to the driveway into Kensington Palace where William and Kate live. Like, there’s William and Kate’s driveway next to the brick column…and here, five feet to the left, surrounded by pine trees, is Bodo’s Schloss.

Where to Stay in London: The Bloomsbury Hotel

After my Zurich trip, E. and I met in London and together we spent two nights at a gorgeous neo-Georgian Grade II hotel near Covent Garden in the heart of the city: The Bloomsbury Hotel.

Everything about our experience at The Bloomsbury Hotel was just perfect: when you walk through the front doors, there’s the most seductive red currant smell thanks to the candles inside the entrance. The lobby has flowers everywhere, the bedrooms are equally opulent and cozy, and it’s surprisingly roomy–especially for London!
