This boutique hotel is, quite simply, a gem. Its location, just down the block from Harrod's and a tube station, is unparalleled. My room was relatively spacious, the bed comfortable and, better yet, the hotel's staff is wonderful. I stayed twice at the hotel over a one week period, having gone to Paris for a few days in the middle... More

We just came back from our London vacation and 5 night stay at the Levin. We had a wonderful experience. The rooms were larger than we expected and everyone was very friendly and went above and beyond to help. One day they even spent the morning trying to get through to the London Eye for us to confirm reservations on... More

This was our 7th stay at The Levin Hotel and arriving back each time we are always very warmly greeted by Harald and his staff. The hotel has the best location in Knightsbridge (1 minute walk to Harrods) and with tube stations and buses within a 5 minute walk, making the hotel a great base to explore London. The rooms...

Can't fault the Levin in terms of rooms and decor nothing is missed out. However some things are. Buffet continental breakfast is included in the price. Visions of copious beautifully fresh breads, pastries, cold meats, smoked salmon and the finest cheeses in reality a tiny buffet with a few cornflakes, a bit of muesli and the odd croissant or bread...

We stayed at the Levin on the last night of a six week European holiday and we were pretty much holidayed out and just waiting to get on the plane home. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and helped lift our spirits greatly. It is literally 50m from Harrods and close to museums, the Tube and other attractions. It... More

I'll be honest, Knightsbridge isn't really my cup of tea normally. Full of posh brits and nouveau riche from elsewhere. But we fancied a new view on our old hometown for a couple of days, and this place ticked a lot of boxes. It is great for the tube and the park, next door to Harrods and Harvey Nicks. The... More

Very unique hotel literally next door to Harrods. Private club-like atmosphere. Spotless rooms with a great staff that manager Harald keeps on their toes. More laid back sophistication than other nearby great hotels. Breakfast in the restaurant very nice way to start your busy day! Expensive, but that is to be expected in this area of London.

Being our first trip to London, we could not have picked a better hotel! The staff is hands down the best. They are friendly and accommodating through every need or question you have. We were completely clueless when it came to getting around and they were always willing to recommend restaurants or provide directions and maps. Definitely the most friendly... More

We would like to thank the staff and the manager for their service, because they are the best asset of the hotel, along with the perfect location. But this is as far as it goes. The hotel is a good little hotel, but not for the price they are asking. When you pay £400+ you expect BETTER, MUCH BETTER. The... More
