Great boutique hotel in Knightsbridge
Great hotel on a quiet street in Knightsbridge. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is located just around the corner from Harrods and Sloane Street...great location! Hotel room was a good size. The hotel had a great bar and the cocktails were delicious. Martina who ran/worked at the bar was lovely, friendly and made amazing cocktails.

A Knightsbridge gem
What a wonderful gem in the heart of Knightsbridge. From the front desk to the concierge to the bar, everyone is so friendly and helpful. Graham at the concierge desk knows everything about London. The very knowledgeable Kamil and the lovely Martina in the bar will make your evening a nice ending to the day. Kamil will make you a drink you've never heard of, and you'll ask for another! And Asif, the food and beverage director is a delight for an evening talk. Our room was a perfect size, well maintained by the housing staff. We've stayed in many hotels in London but this is now our "go to" destination. Incredibly convenient and any easy walk to all Knightsbridge has to offer. We could not have been more pleased.

Pre - Christmas Gem.
We stayed for a week in the appartments which were convenient and easier to access with their own elevator. Breakfasts were expensive so we ate out most mornings in a number of convenient cafes. Apart from our paper not arriving on two mornings the staff were magnificent- very helpful and courteous.

We stayed in an apartment which was good, but bathroom was very small and the shower and screen were in need of replacement. It was surprising that there were no tea coffee or milk so we had to buy these for our two night stay. The apartment did not seem to be the same standard as the hotel(where we have stayed previously and which was very good) but it was a superb position and quite good value.
