Just in time for summer, Hard Rock Hotel has opened a 900-room property in central London. This is the first-ever Hard Rock property in the United Kingdom, and having the first Hard Rock hotel location in central London is a great choice, especially when you considering the fact that the Hard Rock Cafe was founded in London back in 1971. However, Hard Rock International has its headquarters based in the United States.

In addition to offering 900 stylish guest rooms, Hard Rock Hotel London also offers a Rock Royalty Lounge, a cocktail bar, a GMT lobby bar, a Rock Shop full of souvenirs, a gym, and of course, a Hard Rock Cafe. The Hard Rock Cafe offers seating for 370 people, along with space dedicated to performers. Hard Rock Hotel London is conveniently located at the top end of Oxford Street, near Marble Arch station.

Naturally, there is plenty of amazing memorabilia scattered through the hotel. One of the most special items is a handwritten letter written by the late Buddy Holly in 1958. This was written while he stayed at the location that is now the Hard Rock Hotel London. There is another great piece of history at the hotel. Guests can view the Kirkwood piano that Freddie Mercury practised on when he was a teenager.

For those who want to shell out a little more for an elevated experience at the property, they can stay in one of the Rock Royalty rooms and suites, where they will enjoy VIP check-in, access to a private lounge, personal concierge service as well as access to the hottest events, clubs and gigs. Extra Rock Royalty perks include complimentary use of a Crossley record player along with vinyl selection delivered to your room. If you prefer, you can also borrow a Fender guitar during your stay.

A Superior Single Room starts at £260, including taxes and fees. For an additional £10 per person per day, you can get the breakfast package that includes both English and American dishes.
