It was my 30th (30 already!!!) birthday in March and I treated myself to a weekend getaway in London, one of my fave cities in the world. I went there with my super friend Guille - who has an amazing blog about our lovely city, Barcelona, that you must check! - and we had a wonderful time together :) I've written about London many times before, recommending a good value for money hotel, a great place to have the traditional English afternoon tea, Harrods Food Halls and the beautiful Somerset House ice rink. Today I wanted to recommend another great place to stay: St James' Court Hotel. Mind you, it's not cheap! But it's not one of those super expensive hotels either. I found a great deal through Booking, almost 50% discount, and it was a very special occasion so it was really worth it :) 

The location is superb, just footsteps away from Buckingham Palace and St James' Park. The room was  very big, had every small luxury you could imagine, and the building is very nice, just what you would expect from a classic old London house :)

In case you're planning a trip to London, I would also recommend The Folly where we had dinner on Saturday night: I loved the atmosphere and the interior design. The food was also very good!! It's the kind of place where the music is quite loud and the lights are low :) We went to Sushisamba afterwards, on the 39th floor of the Heron Tower, magnificent views!

And last but not least, if you happen to be wandering around Chelsea, please do not miss Partridges, a charming family run food store in the beautiful Sloane Square just off Kings Road. Oh and by the way, the Saatchi Gallery is in the same square, highly recommended as well!!

London is always a good idea, and giving yourself a treat for your birthday is the best idea ever, specially if you share it with someone you love <3
