On Wednesday, the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Knightsbridge, London, experienced a fire. The luxury hotel had Robbie Williams staying there when the incident occurred.


In some Instagram footage the hotel was seen bellowing smoke as it burnt. Currently, it is not known what caused the fire.

Singer Robbie Williams, 44, was one of the guests who were evacuated from Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Knightsbridge on Wednesday afternoon. A fire that broke out at the London hotel saw Williams captured on footage as he walked down the external fire escape.

Reports have shared that the London Fire Brigade sent out 20 fire engines and 120 officer and firefighters to tackle the fire. The singer was staying in London ahead of his appearance on Soccer Aid this weekend.


He was pictured wearing a black tracksuit with the words ‘Unicef ITV’ written on the back of it. At the moment, no one has been reported injured in the blaze.

In a statement, the London Fire Brigade said: ‘The brigade was called at 3.55pm. Fire crews from Chelsea, Kensington, Hammersmith, Battersea and other surrounding fire stations are at the scene.’

‘The cause of the fire is not known at this stage.’

A tweet by Transport for London shared how the fire had affected the nearest train station. Their message revealed that the Sloane Street entrance at the station was closed.


Customers were advised to use the Harrods entrance. At the time, the message was said to be a request from the emergency services.


The hotel had just completed a multi-million pound refurbishment prior to the fire. It is believed to have taken 18 months.


One passer-by told The Sun, "We were walking straight past there and suddenly we heard screaming. There was thick black smoke billowing from the hotel.”


Australian actress Holly Valance was also at the scene. The former Neighbours star took to Twitter to share footage of the building in flames.


In the caption of her post she revealed that the hotel had gone up in flames in just seconds. The 12-storey luxury hotel is a favorite with celebrities and Royals alike.

Celebrities like Helen Mirren and members of the Royal Family have stayed there. In 2011, the Queen hosted an event there the night before the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding.
