We arrived, for our three night stay, after an early flight to drop our bags and received the usual warm welcome and offer of complimentary drinks. The good news was the room was available for an early check-in. The hotel has a modern look and feel, but it has a calm atmosphere. The location is perfectly quiet and that’s why... More

Hotel is new and sleek with a terrific staff that accommodates every request. Hotel is located on a quiet street which is amazing and win the Mayfair district so everything is walkable including Buckingham palace) I will certainly return and will only stay here. I stayed here twice in August 2014. the BEST location in London.

If you like me prefer elegant, well kept and "not too busy" hotel this is the best London has to offer. The rooms are very spatious, nicely decorated and the service great.

Staying at Halkin, one can be as private as you wish. One can enter lobby and be up in your spacious room with no fuss. Great bathrooms with incredible showers.

The Halkin is a fairly small hotel located in a quiet side street in Belgravia. Staff were very efficient and helpful during check-in and throughout our short stay. The rooms were extremely comfortable and well-equipped, with good beds, efficient air conditioning and well-equipped (and fairly large) bathrooms. This was our first stay, but I would certainly recommend for those looking... More

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
