The Lanesborough is still a true landmark within London's hotel and accommodation landscape. It does stick out positively, having preserved the dedicated and individual service one came accustomed to. The food is typical English and so are tea and coffee and all of good quality served in truly English style. After check in, luggage is found already in the room... More

When You enter the Lanesborough Hotel entrance, just keep going and turn left into the Library Bar. This being an old wartime(I think)hospital, the ceilings are very high and the bar area is a very warm experience indeed. A grand piano in the corner provides a nice , not too intruding, background to conversation. This is a perfect place for... More

Stayed in the Lanesborough hotel for about 5 times. Firstly, the hotel has a unique location: Hyde Park is just across the road as well as the Tube, while the Buckingham Palace is just around the corner and lots of places of interest within the walking distance. Secondly, the hotel is something beyond for the ones who seek esthetic pleasure.... More

Reading other reviewers contributions where they were raving about the hotel, made me feel as if I stayed at another place. This hotel is old, stuffy, smelly, has rude staff, haunted rooms (no I'm not joking), your room type is a game of Russian roulette, they have rooms that have are underground with a narrow window (dungeon style), and rooms...

So often today one is enticed by promises of service and location etc only to be disappointed. However, everything you have heard and read about The Lanesborough is true. If you want real 5* service in London, then look no further.

I've had the opportunity to stay here twice and both times the room, service, staff and overall experience has been absolutely amazing. One needs to get used to the butler service, but they are not intrusive at all. The butler service is very convienent. Coffee delivered in the morning, clothes pressed (for free), items packed. I had a junior suite... More

This hotel is worth every cent. Everything was top quality. The service was perfect, I was suggested the best restaurants in London, I asked for polishing my shoes, and in the morning they were outside the room cleaner than on the shop window. There is a '1 Michelin star' restaurant in the hotel, with the most delicious fua gra I... More

We stayed here many years ago and it was outstanding. And just before it closed for a gut renovation end of 2013 we went for an afternoon tea. It was quite simply the best of the many 5-star tea experiences we have had in London. The quality of the finger sandwiches, hot mini quiches, scones and beautiful pastries were absolutely... More

Staying in Belgravia

Neighborhood Profile
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.
