An excellent typical british hotel in the center of London. The service was excellent. Near Green park station, the situation of the hotel is excellent to visit london. I recommend this hotel an I keep the address for our next visit in London.

Within easy walking distance of the Green Park tube stop on the Piccadilly line, Dukes Hotel is centrally located near Buckingham Palace, Green Park & Hyde Park in a fashionable part of London (which made walking in the neighborhood pleasant and interesting). The service at the hotel was exceptional, the public areas were very attractive, and the room we stayed... More

We chanced upon the Dukes and it will be our base for further trips to London. The recommendation was to try their martini (reportedly the best in London) and it was the inspiration for Ian Flemming to write Bond into a 'Shaken not Stirred' man. Room service breakfast, and lunch in the lounge were also fantastic. The rooms are well... More

I booked one night at this hotel via secret escaped for £191 including breakfast and a late check out until 4pm. The arrival was perfect, quick check in and friendly receptionist. Our room was on the first floor and easy to find. Here's where the problems started... the air con was very loud but didn't have much of an effect... More

A first class hotel tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac in a lovely area of London. We stayed for one night whilst visiting family and found the staff welcoming and efficient. The room was well appointed and more spacious than the majority of London hotels I have previously stayed in. The attention to detail was evident and the staff projected... More

This is my 3rd stay at the Dukes and it a now my go-to hotel in London. Truly a hidden gem - the driveway is almost impossible to see from the street and only a London taxi can easily turn around inside - it is worth finding. The Dukes is a boutique hotel. The staff get to know you by... More

Dukes' impeccable service was the perfect way to start off our London adventure. I emailed the concierge prior to our visit to set up a car pick up at the airport and to have champagne waiting for us in the hotel room. Everything was perfect! An absolute must is to get a Vesper martini at the Dukes Bar. My only... More

Dukes hotel has an impeccable pedigree reaching back more than a century which may bring to mind a certain ambience - but it is wrong. Dukes is a 'boutique' hotel, meaning that it is not vast and impersonal, indeed it is the essence of personal. From the cosy reception to the discrete staff approach to their guests it has a... More

Charming hotel with efficient and professional staff. Our room was clean and well appointed and beautifully quiet - something that you don't often find in London hotels. We didn't have time to use all the facilities but enjoyed the cocktail bar for drinks in the evening. As we stayed on a Sunday night, the restaurant was closed so we had... More

Just returned from Brunch & Bubbly at 'Thirty Six' in the Dukes Hotel. What a lovely experience. It was a present to a friend who had celebrated 'a big birthday' in June. The staff were attentive without being invasive, the food was great, from the fresh orange juice, thro the wonderful assortment of cereals, yoghurt, fresh fruit, meats, fish, salads... More
