L’oscar London is an exclusive luxury hotel, an architectural gem and the group’s first hotel outside France and Switzerland. The former headquarters of the Baptist Church has been restored and splendidly refurbished in all its Baroque glory by renowned French architect and designer Jacques Garcia.
L’oscar London is now a member of Michel Reybier Hospitality, meaning the property is now represented in Australia and New Zealand.
A member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts’ Legend collection and Mr & Mrs Smith, the hotel features 39 bedrooms of which 18 are suites and is also home to the decadent L’oscar Restaurant and Baptist Bar alongside other more unique function spaces for smaller and larger meetings and events.
The imagination and attention to detail in the décor creates a typically non-English and theatrical style and is the ideal setting providing a luxurious escape in the city.

Part of the building was once the chapel for the Baptist Church and was built in 1856 in Victorian style. Between 1901 and 1903 the structure was extended to become the headquarters for the Church. The building is located on Southampton Row, nestled between Covent Garden and Bloomsbury, and a short walking distance from the British Museum.
From the Superior Room to the L’oscar Suite, each room is delightfully individual, with extravagant styling, high ceilings, large windows, and a wealth of original detail, all personalised and curated by Garcia’s opulent design. Guests will settle into plump goose-down pillows on each of the luxe king-size beds or float around their room and enjoy the unique charm with feature fireplaces and state-of-the-art amenities.
Located on the ground floor, L’oscar Restaurant is the bustling heart of the hotel, with its illuminated onyx bar and décor inspired by the world’s oldest Café in Venice, with walls and ceilings lined with mirrors, gilded panels and stunning original art.
L’oscar offers all the sophistication and charm of a Parisian Café. A food lover’s lair, it is the place to go for a delectable breakfast, bistrostyle lunch and an intimate evening dinner, or simply for a late-night dessert and a soothing glass of wine from Château La Mascaronne or Les Pagodes de Cos.
