The Adria.

The year is 1953 and Kensington is home to artists, lords, inventors and students. A new spirit of post-war optimism and coronation fever is in the air. The Adria is a realisation of that picture held in the memory of one man (then a student, now a Qatari dignitary) for over 60 years. Time and care are layered into this exquisite 26 room town house hotel where traditional style and contemporary touches sit comfortably together. The branding is based around story telling, the alphabet, new ceremonies, exquisite materials, the luxury of craft and of course, absolute discretion.
