The Prince Akatoki London was formerly the Bryanston Court Hotel (established 1975) and newly re-opened in January 2010 (as The Arch Hotel) after a multi million pound renovation/refurbishment project. However it bears little resemblance to the former 3 star establishment having undergone a £25 million pound refurbishment in 2009.
