The Spice Girls brought their brand of ‘girl power’ to the magnificent St Pancras Renaissance Hotel when the group shot the video for the 1996 hit Wannabe here. Emma Bunton returned in July 2016, tagging the hotel one of her #specialplaces. Ellie Goulding was also spotted here in July 2015. For those who love Harry Potter, the hotel will look familiar as the exterior featured in the film version of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
With its grand staircase, fairy-tale castle appearance and gothic spires, it’s not hard to see why the building is so popular with directors. However, this luxury London hotel also provides five-star accommodation and service, all conveniently close to King’s Cross and St Pancras stations. The luxury extends to the Victorian-inspired spa, which is a wonderful haven from the city, with Cinq Mondes and Aromatherapy Associates treatments, and a wonderful relaxation pool. Book now.
The modern K West Hotel & K Spa in Shepherd’s Bush boasts a fantastic A-list heritage, due to the fact that – back in the day – the building housed BBC recording and broadcasting studios, where the likes of David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley came to record. The building has since been transformed into a stylish London boutique hotel that continues to attract celebs, especially those in town to visit the nearby music, film and TV studios or perform at Hammersmith Apollo. For example, back in August 2004, Franz Ferdinand had a photoshoot here and reportedly enjoyed some rockstar downtime at the hotel’s uber-cool K Suite. The hotel’s Studio Bar is the place to be seen and to enjoy the work of the resident mixologist. The music’s pretty good, too!
Rumoured to count Rihanna and Dizzy Rascal as fans, the K Spa is a great place to unwind after a night out, with luxurious treatments from the likes of Ytsara, Aromatherapy Associates, and Germaine De Cappuccino. The facilities include a steam room, sauna, sanarium and hydrotherapy pool, as well as the invigorating Snow Paradise. Book now.

As the official hotel partner of London Fashion Week and the BFI Film Festival, the hotel has welcomed all kinds of celeb names and VIP guests over the years.
It’s not hard to see why the hotel has become a magnet for film and fashion A-listers, with its prestigious Mayfair location, five-star service and truly impressive amenities, including The Palm Beach Casino.
