This hotel has excellent staff - polite, helpful and they take the initiative to try and satisfy client needs. For example, I casually mentioned that I would like to have South American coffee and then went shopping. When we returned, the lovely receptionist handed me 2 print-outs, recommending coffee shops that sell S American coffee. The rooms are a bit... More

Don't tell anyone about this hotel, it only has 14 rooms and is popular enough as it is! :). You can't beat the location, in a rather calm street in Knightsbridge, yet next to the tube and Harrods. It is quiet and on the 4th Floor we could not hear a sound from the streets. However, the best is the... More

When I chose The LEVIN to stay for 2 weeks in London , I knew I was making the RIGHT CHOICE. Not only for the perfect size and cozy BOUTIQUE HOTEL, but for the lovely quiet, safe , high level street , just two steps from very good restaurants , black cabs , underground station , Museums and best shops....

Great location - Basil is a beautiful street located in an ideal area for shopping. Outstanding staff - humble and genuinely helpful team. Beautiful rooms - we have stayed both in the classic and the deluxe rooms. while the deluxe is more specious, both are perfect. In summery - our hotel of choice in London. warmly recommended!

Thank you for the glowing review and I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay. We are very spoiled with our location and I am glad you found it convenient. Our elevator indeed is funky and needs special attention when in use. I am so glad that you enjoyed the breakfast and I will pass it on to the restaurant... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Levin in Early September for two nights. The Levin is a small, very well run, up-scale boutique hotel that has a low-key, elegant feel. If you have a room facing the street there is a bit of foot traffic and some pedestrian noise – especially in the morning as... More

Our initial entry to the hotel was a bit off-putting due to the somewhat rundown appearance of the lobby-reception area (after all, it is a 4 star hotel and not inexpensive). However, we were greatly relieved to find the individual rooms are first class, modern and very well appointed. Harald and staff provided much helpful information about getting around in... More

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...
