Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom
Reviewed 8 January 2013

This hotel, for me, is quite simply one of the best in London. Our standard double room was a good size and clean. Staff were possibly the most welcoming and accomodating that we've met. We stayed room only so cannot comment on the food. The breakfast room was bright and cheery rather than oppulent. Would we stay again? Absolutely!

Rooms lovely, big modern and clean. Staff great. That's all you need and that is what you get. The location is without peer and - don't laugh - get an oyster card and use the buses that come constantly past the end of the street to get around.

We absolutely loved this hotel, hidden away from the the locura that is the City, but close to everything.

This hotel is in a quiet residential part of Belgravia, London and counts many of the world's embassies as neighbours. It's a quiet location and the hotel is medium size. Unassuming from the road, the interior is however very much a style haven, imbued with an atmosphere of healthy well being - and that is the overarching message from the...

Staying in Belgravia

Neighbourhood Profile
Belgravia
Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic residences in London, sophisticated and upscale Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw away to the north, and some of Europe’s best shopping is nearby as well.

With a discreet, efficient approach to service, everything about The Halkin is about elegant understatement and its intimate feel. With just 41 rooms and suites, The Halkin is a true boutique hotel. Bespoke Italian design is combined with subtle nuances of Oriental influence with wools, silks and linens in taupes and creams. Rooms are furnished with soft carpets and warm wood panelling, and boast some of the largest bathrooms in London. The hotel restaurant Ametsa with Arzak Instruction,is a unique collaboration between Elena Arzak – voted Veuve Clicquot World’s Best Female Chef in 2012 – along with her father Juan Mari Arzak, and Mikel Sorazu, Igor Zalakain and Xabier Gutierrez.Ametsa’s approach is rooted in the traditions of ‘New Basque Cuisine’, pairing the earthy flavours and techniques of Spain’s Basque region with modern, surprising twists featuring locally-sourced and organic produce from land and sea. ... more   less
