Our room, which was in the old part of the building, was spacious, bright and well appointed, sparkling clean and welcoming. The guest service and attention from start to finish was utterly superb; Kate Levin you should be immensely proud of...

I loved staying at The Capital. It is a small, upscale hotel very close to Harrods but on a quiet road. I also loved it was near the park as I went running each morning. The breakfast each morning was lovely. The staff was fantastic. We will be back!

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.

The Capital also has their own award winning vineyard, Levin Wines, in the Loire Valley and a bakery that delivers to high end restaurants, hotels and clubs across london, The London Bakery.
