Of course, the matrons and their starched skirts have moved on, and instead you'll find 97 stylish rooms and suites with gorgeous décor, comfy beds, power showers and digital TV - perfect whether you're touring London or visiting on business. London hotels don't get any closer to the great sights and shops than this; you can just about hear the bells ringing in Great St Bart's and the bubble and bustle of Smithfield Market, which is one of the oldest markets in London. Bathed in natural light and lively with an understated 1970s vibe, Mal London is for design lovers, Cosmo drinkers and Sunday brunchers, and our Mal Lounge is the perfect place to kick back with a glass of champagne or a refreshingly cool cocktail. Make yourself at home in our chic Chez Mal restaurant, which serves classic British dishes that are fresh, local and quintessentially Malmaison. One of the best restaurants on the Square Mile, we dare to be different with exposed brick, soft lighting and seriously comfy seating in this awesome bistro. Malmaison London? What a capital idea.
