November 2016. The Charles Hotel represents a fascinating mixture of architectural grandeur, modern style and urban atmosphere, and with the reopening of Sophia’s Restaurant & Bar it is on everybody’s lips. For a slice of traditional London life, guests can enjoy the new Afternoon Tea in the lobby lounge The Library.
