This hotel might be pricey, but it is well worth the money. A king sized bed in an ample-sized room, heated floors and towel bar in bathroom, this hotel had the smaller but finer details that we so appreciated. It was so quiet, we didn't know there were other guests! There are only 41 rooms in this boutique hotel, so it's quaint, private, and a welcome respite from walking the streets of London all day. The staff was so courteous and helpful; Bence, one of the concierges, made us last minute dinner reservations at an awesome Japanese place and also saw to our cabs. Nahm, the Thai restaurant in The Halkin, was absolutely delicious, and drew many diners outside the hotel (it's Michelin-star rated and well deserved!). We would totally stay here again, there are no complaints. Centrally located, within walking distance to many neighborhoods, sites, Tube, and restaurants. Why stay in a crowded, loud touristy hotel when you can stay at The Halkin? Also, for a luxury hotel, this place wasn't over the top and pretentious AT ALL. We passed a few with doormen dressed with white gloves and hats, Bentleys parked outside, etc. While some may love this type of hotel, we wanted a more toned-down experience. And The Halkin more than delivered.
