Let us check in early. Very attentive staff. Nice, clean, airy and bright rooms.The in house spanish restaurant was excellent and a Michelin star. Next door is the Caledonian Club and they have a bagpiper tooting away on friday on the pavement which was fun. Its well located and we walked most of central London from here.

Was great for a London hotel. Very clean, quiet, and comfortable. Bar and restaurant were great too. The bathroom is a little strange with water controls in shower and mirrors, but nice products and towels. Would stay here anytime.

Good experience. Excellent location in a quite street but very close to tube station and walking distance from Hyde Park and Knightsbrige shops. Rooms are big for London's standards and service is very kind. However, the room seemed a bit old and required some update. Otherwise my review would have been a 5/5.

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.
