Really nice big rooms, amazing staff worth mentioning George he is a great help, we originally booked single he upgraded our room to a big double for only £20 more. The decor was old fashioned but suited the nature of the building. Highly recommend

I stayed here for couple of nights with a group of colleagues. We called up the hotel and made reservations and were offered good discounts. Our reason for choosing the hotel was proximity to our workplace as we were planning a few night outs. The hotel itself is a converted Belgravia house as other people have commented and thus is...

First impression was that the hotel has a lot of character, but is quite dusty and unkempt, with tired looking staff that don't look so keen on providing service according to their prices. Great location but well overpriced for the poor cleanses and outdated hotel.

Stayed one night in a tiny cramped single room for £140 The tiny room was hot and stuffy with no air conditioning and so dated and old fashioned with stained, chipped furniture and dirty net curtains. Sound proofing is non existent so you can hear every noise from the next room..... Asked to change rooms but fully booked and told...

Thank you very much for sharing your feedback about your stay and I am terribly sorry that you found the room allocated for you "tiny room". We do take all comments extremely seriously as part of our strategy to continually improve, and further enhance our guests' experience. The size of our singles is standard across The Diplomat Hotel but due...

This hotel is located in an extremely pleasant part of London, and is a converted Belgravia house only altered enough to make it a hotel of a somewhat old fashioned kind. If someone leaves the doors of the cage lift open and you have to walk down, enjoy it because the staircase is still elegant. They have some single rooms,...

I took one of my daughters on a weekend to London for her birthday. I booked the hotel through booking.com and got a very good price for the area and location. The hotel has no parking but i was going to be using the underground anyway. So after putting all our luggage in the room i took the car to...

I've stayed at this hotel on maybe 20 occasions over ten years. It's conveniently located for my needs and relatively affordable for an expensive part of London (is there any other?). The rooms are a bit of a lottery. Some are huge and comfortable, some small, cramped and hot; you seem to get what's available at the time. Breakfast is...

The hotel is unusually cheap for London generally and for Sloane square particularly. It is its first noticed but not the main advantage. It is located in the old family house built in 1882 which makes it quite authentic. Walking through the reception or towards your room or down to the restaurant you every time try to imagine - what...

I really can not tell you how bad the room I was allocated there was - the Westminster Suite. Sounds grand - nope, a horrible place, stuffy, red hot with no ventilation or air conditioning (no external window in fact). I will let my pictures do the rest of the talking.

We stayed in this hotel for four nights. The service is very good, English brakfast decent. The location is excellent. Staff very kind and helpful. But to be honest, our room (Westminster, one of the basement rooms) was not as good as we expected from the photos. It was cosy, but very old. We got a special offer price on...

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.
