I've stayed at this hotel on maybe 20 occasions over ten years. It's conveniently located for my needs and relatively affordable for an expensive part of London (is there any other?). The rooms are a bit of a lottery. Some are huge and comfortable, some small, cramped and hot; you seem to get what's available at the time. Breakfast is... More

The hotel is unusually cheap for London generally and for Sloane square particularly. It is its first noticed but not the main advantage. It is located in the old family house built in 1882 which makes it quite authentic. Walking through the reception or towards your room or down to the restaurant you every time try to imagine - what... More

I really can not tell you how bad the room I was allocated there was - the Westminster Suite. Sounds grand - nope, a horrible place, stuffy, red hot with no ventilation or air conditioning (no external window in fact). I will let my pictures do the rest of the talking. I sent the pictures to a friend at the... More

We stayed in this hotel for four nights. The service is very good, English brakfast decent. The location is excellent. Staff very kind and helpful. But to be honest, our room (Westminster, one of the basement rooms) was not as good as we expected from the photos. It was cosy, but very old. We got a special offer price on... More

I stayed here on business for one night. The Hotel is a conversion of a Belgravia town house which offers a breathtaking reception area with a sweeping, spiral stairway leading to the rooms on the floors above (there is a lift for those with heavy luggage or who don't fancy the walk). My twin room was very comfortable with a... More

The whole hotel needs some renovation, so don't expect top quality. But the rooms are at least clean and service was good. Breakfast was pretty minimal. No shops or stores nearby, but some more expensive shopping places if you walk more. No tube stations near. The best part of the stay was seeing all the supercars parked nearby. You couldn't...

The hotel is in an old and charming historic Victorian building. The rooms are clean and comfortable but the bathrooms so uncomfortable for many different reasons. They really need a renovation! The breakfast is very simple and exactly the same every single day. The location is very good, within walking distance to Victoria Station, which takes you everywhere. Very good... More

This is a pretty good hotel if you can get a room at the right price via an appropriate website. The quality is questionable but it's in a great location if you need to be in Knightsbridge/Belgravia. Breakfasts were included in the rate and were reasonable. Coffee was a bit ropey. It is clean but some of the rooms are... More

We booked this last minute on the Friday night and what a lovely hotel it is. Situated in Belgravia It has only 26 rooms and has a real family appeal. We were in a junior suite with lovely period decor, stacks of room with a wonderful comfy 6ft bed and cosy duvet and pillows. There isn't a bar or restaurant... More

Staying in Belgravia

Neighborhood 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.
