Stayed at The Halkin with my husband mid-June while in London for 3 days. It is a very contemporary boutique hotel with lovely suites. And best of all...quiet!

I first stayed at the Halkin in 1999 on business. The work was hectic but it was lovely to return each evening to a clean, efficient hotel that was manned by staff eager to make me feel at home. I had a butler who took his job very seriously. Despite all the lawyering I had to do during that trip,...

Stayed for three nights. Lovely boutique hotel tucked away in sleepy Belgravia. Close to major attractions, Hyde Park Corner underground only three minutes walk away. Being on the Piccadilly line is a bonus. Direct trains from Heathrow take around 40 mins to Hyde Park Hotel. The hotel itself was one of Londons first boutique hotels. Standards are high. I opted...

Thank you very much indeed for taking the time to share your valued feedback with us.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Halkin by COMO is a haven of luxury in the heart of London’s Belgravia with the shopping of Mayfair and Knightsbridge both within a 10-minute walk. 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
