Eleven Cadogan Gardens is a luxury hotel at Sloane Square, Knightsbridge, London. It is so discrete a hotel that the sign "11" only reveals its presence to the initiated. All the Victorian mansions in the quiet area were built by Lord Chelsea on his former cricket ground at the end of the 19th century.

The hotel with its sixty rooms and suites was established in 1949. It faces an elegant private garden, which is available for use by guests of Eleven Cadogan Gardens. The town house has no reception. Instead, a butler meets you at the door.

The furniture and wallpaper is tasteful and very British. Antiques and oriental rugs as well as marble bathrooms create an exclusive ambiance. Keiser and Cybex exercise machines wait in the basement for guests who would like to work out. Sauna, massages and aromatherapy are available too.

A specialty of Eleven Cadogan Gardens is the complimentary five o'clock tea, served with a freshly baked cake in front of the fireplace in the Drawing Room, where, at six o'clock, complimentary canapés and sherry are served too. Newspapers, magazines and books are other distractions in the Drawing Room.

The Dining Room on the lower ground floor opens at seven in the morning for breakfast, lunch is served from noon and it closes after dinner at eleven at night.

The designer shops of Knightsbridge, Harvey Nichols and Harrods are within walking distance as well as, to the other side of the hotel, fashionable Chelsea with its galleries, restaurants and entertainment.

The hotel's nearest underground station is Sloane Square Station. A chauffeured Mercedes is available for airport and train connections as well as for shopping expeditions and tours.
