“Small but perfectly formed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2011 via mobile

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was very clean, but room a little small compared to previous London hotels we've stayed in. Service was lovely. Tea out of a stainless steel vacuum flask at breakfast was very disappointing! Will however stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights during a recent trip to London. Having stayed in Jumeirah properties before I was expecting a high standard and got it. The rooms, though small, were well designed and clean. The service was excellent and attentive and the food in the restaurant was of a high quality.
The only small gripes I had concerned the lack of an in-room wifi connection (we came armed with iPads, making the in-room cable Internet useless), and the concierge seemed more concerned to spend as little time as possible on our queries, unusually for Jumeirah properties (an example: an urgent request to help us procure tickets to The Childrens Hour at the theatre was met with a stock answer that it was impossible. It then took us 10 mins to buy tickets from a street based agent).
On e whole though, these are minor complaints and we would certainly stay at the hotel again.

In terms of value and service, the Jumeirah Lowndes is one of the best hotels I have encountered. We arrived at the hotel around 1 AM after checking out of the awful Draycotts of Chelsea hotel. I didn't have their phone number, so we just showed up hoping they would have a room, and we were very warmly welcomed by the staff. The night manager was especially helpful and even came up to the room to check on a faulty sink regulator at almost 2:00 AM.

They only had two remaining standard rooms, one across from the lift and the other an accessible room. They insisted that we visit the rooms and then decide which we'd prefer. We chose the accessible room because it was larger and because we didn't need a tub. It was perfect for us in terms of size and amenities. It was also spotlessly clean.

The room definitely isn't large, but I wasn't expecting it to be given the prime location. The square in front of the hotel is lovely, and the location is walking distance from Harrods, Knightsbridge, Hyde Park Corner, Sloane Square, and more. The staff was what really made our stay; they made all of our dinner reservations, greeted us every time we entered the hotel, and wouldn’t let us lift a single piece of luggage. One time someone at the front desk insisted that they get us an extra umbrella, which later came in handy. They were also wonderful at giving directions and even printed us Google maps.

The beds were extremely comfortable and had nice, soft linens. The TV had many channels and movie options (at least compared to the hotels we’d stayed at immediately prior in Italy) and the Internet worked flawlessly. Overall, the Jumeirah Lowndes is a wonderful hotel with fabulous service. We travel to London every year and this is now our hotel of choice.

On our return back to the US from Spain, we had an overnight stay in London. Rather than stay at a hotel near the airport, we elected to stay in the city so that we could experience a bit of what London has to offer. We took the train from the airport to the hotel finding that it was only a short walk from the train station! Staying at the Jumeirah Lowndes provided us with many things within walking distance such as Harrod's and a fantastic, traditional English Pub where we dined on fish and chips! The rooms themselves were small but comfortable with great bedding and the staff went above and beyond to assist with things such as reservations, ordering a taxi to the airport, etc. My only recommendation if you are considering staying at this property is that you request to be put in a room away from the elevator. Someone told us to do this and I am glad that we did. The elevator is very noisy - I could not imagine staying in a room near it and getting any rest. Even with this, I would recommend staying here - I just wish we could have stayed longer than one night!

We visited this hotel for dinner. We had an excellent meal, good choice, well cooked and beautifully presented. The service from David and Paulo was amazing. Thank you so much.

I stay in the Jumeriah Lowndes whenever in London as it is the hotel my Company has negotiated rates for.

I think the Lowndes is excellent. The sleep quality on those oh so soft beds is incredible. The only comparable hotel for beds is the Grand Hyatt in Tokyo. I have never slept so well. The rooms are a litle small, but the in-room amenities make up for that. Nespresso machine, ipod dock, full minibar with luxury snack items - all in all I think this stands out from the rent-a-kit business hotels I am used to.

Service in the restaurant (Mimosa) is great, if occasionally a little slow when very busy. This week has been fine though as there don't seem to be many patrons.

Check in was very smooth (as usual) and the guy getting our luggage was a gentleman.

Overal I just dont have issues with this place aside from the price of certain items. Laundry is generally charged at the same price as dry cleaning, and just isn't cheap (my wife laundered a blouse and it was 16 GBP - not silk, just cotton?!!). I guess though that this is pretty stadard for hotels of this clas - in my experience anyway.

Overal though, if sleep is what you are after (and it's a hotel, so I imagine most are!) don't look much further than the beds here.

Recommended.
