Bluebird's Favourite Feature:
It would be hard to ignore one of the only hotel rooftop pools in London as our concierge service's favourite feature. It is an absolutely unique offering allowing guests to relax and sunbathe whilst enjoying views of Hyde Park. Not that that’s the only benefit, the British design and herb garden makes it feel as though you could be in the middle of the countryside - when in reality you are only a stone’s throw away from the world famous department stores of Harrods and Harvey Nichols.
