I really hesitate to write this review because our family have stayed here for at least 15years and love it. If we tell everyone what a special, unique place it is we will have difficulty getting a room again!! Discreet and in the between Harrods and Harvey Nicols! What more does a lady need to drop off her shopping bags.... More

Being a rather picky German this is the first time ever that I can say: What more could a guest ask for (within reason)? Nothing really! Having spent quite a few holidays in London over the past twenty years I believe I have finally found what I had been looking for. The Levin makes you feel welcome from the very... More

The Levin is a terrific small hotel connected to the slightly larger Capital Hotel just next door. With only 12 rooms, it is a very special type of luxury accommodation that won't appeal to every traveler. However, if you're a regular visitor to London for business or pleasure, and the very boring cookie-cutter corporate hotels are starting to make you... More

This property is right next to and part of its swish sister, THE CAPITAL. It thus shares the fabulous location- 20 meters from Entrance 6, Harrods- and easy access to the mouthwatering The Outlaw's. yet that is where the similarity ends- the Levin needs a refurbishment of public areas- even though the 40 meter chandelier in the center of the...

A small hotel just around the corner of Harrods, you can see the store from the entrance of the hotel. Room was great, comfortable and equipped with everything you need including complimentary coffee & tea. Love the heated floor in the bathroom, feels great! Breakfast was downstairs in a cosy little restaurant, but there are many other places nearby. Sloane... More

Stayed here for two nites, it is a fantastic hotel. We had a beautiful room with a very comfortable bed. room 24 is very spacious and comfortable. The bathroom has a large bath/shower, home away from home. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed at this hotel from 26/12/2014 to 5/01/2015. It's very central position, few meters from Harrods department store. Cleaning It's been very good, the staff very friendly and the breakfast was also very good. Also very close to the tube (Knightsbridge station). In short, a really good hotel. Thanks

The Levin is ideally located in Basil Street for Harrods and Harvey Nichols, not too far to stagger back with shopping and go out again. My room was reasonably quiet on the third floor with a very well appointed marble bathroom with underfloor heating and the bedroom with separate seating area very comfortable. I had a great night's sleep and... More

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighborhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
