The Orange occupies an enviable spot on the western edge of Belgravia, one of London’s most exclusive neighbourhoods. The hotel takes its name from Orange Square, which is on its doorstep.
- Planes The nearest airport is Heathrow, 18 miles away, although Gatwick, Stansted or City airports are also just as accessible.
- Trains The nearest London Underground station is Sloane Square, one stop east of London Victoria on the District and Circle lines (www.tfl.gov.uk). London Victoria is also one of the capital’s busiest overground train stations, with regular service to and from Gatwick Airport and the surrounding counties (www.nationalrail.co.uk).
- Automobiles Central London traffic can be wretched and the hotel doesn’t have any parking spaces, so drive at your peril. (If you do drive, take the M4 towards central London from Heathrow, or the M23, then M25, then M4 from Gatwick.) Taxis are plentiful and can easily be hailed in many of the surrounding streets.
