I understand that this hotel was shut down, i just never got the chance to review it. So, with all respect, I think it deserves some much needed credit. We used to stay here for a day or two on our way back to the United States. It was great for what we were looking for, a hotel with accommodating... More

Would stay well clear of London outpost!!! If you like pubs and old fashioned decor then this is for you. The library is a small wallpapered area outside your bedroom door and relaxation is with a 14" tv and a mini bar stocked with 3 pieces of fruit and empty glass bottles.

My sister and I traveled to London on our way to Athens last fall. We stayed three nights on the way to Athens and one night on our way back to the the US. I booked the Outpost for the location, which offers a safe place to walk about for two unescorted, well dressed ladies. We got more than we... More

My partner and I stayed in this hotel for three nights in September. The location is excellent, the staff are attentive and friendly and the hotel is well kept. Alas a double bed turned out to be two singles pushed together and there were little niggles like no safe in the room and the decor needed freshening up here and... More

we stayed here the nights before and after our civil union SOLELY due to the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. The hotel, staff and location lived up to our high expectations. The room was large, comfortable and well appointed. We were met at the door by genuinely friendly people and made to feel as though we were staying with friends -... More

Only 11 rooms and each is different. We stayed four times at London Outpost this year both as a primary vacation spot and as a stopping-off place. We had 4 different rooms; each unique each with its own quirk that makes it special. Breakfast in the conservatory is fun. The staff is top-knotch and dedicated to serving your needs. Location...

I just spent nine days at the Outpost and as a single female traveller can highly recommend it for security and location. The most outstanding feature of my stay however was the staff - butlers and managers were the best. As stated by others, this is not an inexpensive hotel but does provide understated elegance, quiet atmosphere and superb location... More

We stayed at the Outpost for almost 2 weeks - both holiday & business and the place was superb - great staff, excellent location (for those interested in quality London shopping and proximity to the best places - Harvey Nicks, Harrods, Sloane Str). Rooms are decorated in the period English style with tastefully assembled antique furnishings & prints. The entire... More

Outstanding small (11 room) hotel tucked in on a quiet back street in Chelsea. Very good value for the money. Excellent staff. If you're looking for a top notch place away from major tourist areas (but 5 minutes from the District and Circle lines at Slone Square) this is it.

The Carnegie Outpost is located a couple of blocks from the Sloane Street tube station. It is like stepping into Edwardian era London. If you like a quiet hotel with lots of comfort, charm, and a gracious atmosphere- this is it. But it comes at a price.
