Charming staff in great location. Arrived early and was immediately taken to my room. Next day Left late and no trouble looking after my luggage. Did not use dining room but excellent bar and good breakfast apart from coffee. Ask for speciality one, otherwise comes stewed in a china photo

I've been here before, enjoyed it very much and come back again and again... time to confirm it once more in Tripadvisor. THIS is how a hotel should be - period - Congratulations to the Capital team for service, cleanliness, friendliness. Please keep up that spirit and quality.

We like to regularly try out the set lunch deals offered by well known venues of chef's in London. The set lunch is a great way to identify how good a restaurant is. In our view, you get a snapshot of what they are capable of and whether to want to go back for a more expensive evening meal or... More

I had booked afternoon tea for my daughters 23 birthday. There was no problem with the food, service or table we were seated at. Unfortunately seated a table opposite to us was a very rude business man who was dealing in watches. His choice of language was very aggressive to the French man he was discussing 'deals' with and it... More

The Capital is our "home away from home" whenever in London, which is every 2-3 months for a stay of at least 4-5 nights. Convenient location is important, but the friendly, warm staff, who always welcome us by name, and lovely accommodations keep us coming back. It's a classy, old-world hotel with a modern vibe. We leave for our next... More

We stayed at the Capital Hotel for 4 nights end of Feb.2014., I had picked hotel online due to proximity to attractions, with no idea just how centrally located and convenient it is! It is on a side street less than a block from Harrod's, around the corner from the tube, surrounded by cafes, & down the block from an... More

My friend and I went to London for a 3-day "treat" and to see several plays. The hotel was absolutely top notch. It was very beautiful -- it is not "glitzy" but extremely serene and beautifully decorated. All the perfect little touches were there (would love to have had some of their gorgeous wall papers and fabrics in my home).... More

Having just read a review from the "Valentines stay", the lady must have stayed at a different hotel to us. We have nothing but praise for the staff and the Hotel. We took advantage of the "Shop until you drop" package and it was fantastic. Everyone made us feel welcome and special, especially the concierge and his staff, so much... More

The Capital is blessed by location and not really with a stunning outside architecture - but - as soon you step inside the staff of the hotel creates the value of high sophisticated hospitality. The rooms are not competing with bling bling fellow properties, but the atomosphere of a private mansion exceeds by far other superficial caring hotel temples in... More
