Great location..just a few step to Harrods. I stayed in a deluxe room which is very comfortable and stylish decor. The staffs are very nice and helpful. The is the place for me to stay when I visit London next time for sure.

This is a fantastic hotel that I've visited on more than one occasion. The staff remember you, are very attentive and you get that "family run feel" which I love. Location is great bang in the middle of Knightsbridge next to Harrods and just behind Sloane St. Not a cheap hotel by any means but for me offers good value compared to other "big name" hotels in the area.

Location, location, location. This place could not be better. About 100 feet from the door of Harrods, 200 feet from the knightsbridge tube station. You can easily walk to Hyde park or Buckingham Palace. The rooms are cheery and well appointed but the staff makes the place. As friendly and helpful as a bed and breakfast. This is a boutique hotel so there are few rooms. That means people remember your name and what room you are in. They remember what you were planning to see and asked how it went and how you liked it. They make good suggestions for places to see, place to eat, and ways to get around. We would strongly recommend this hotel for its location, room quality, and most importantly the staff. Stay here you won't regret it.

Room Tip: From Heathrow the Piccadilly line is a straight shot to Knightsbridge station. £11 for two people on...

This is my 2nd stay at the Levin. Why i'm always coming back to this lovely hotel?
1. Location, it's very close to knightsbridge tube station and Harrods. It only take 2 minutes !
2. Very friendly and helpful staff, they will do their best to help you. ( ex.hiding my shopping bag from my husband ). And also they know what i need.
3. The Levin itself is a very homey. The size of my room is quite big for typical london boutique hotel. You can also acces wifiin your room.
4. This hotel also child friendly ( my 1st stay here is with my 2 sons). They got souvenirs ( teddy bear and london bus miniature)


Oww, i forgot, they also will offer you tea/coffee when they see that you're tired, very nice, even big hotel is not like that.

In overall, i would like to stay in this hotel again when i come to london again. And it's friendly hotel if you are staying with your children

We wanted to stay at a no-nonsense but beautiful hotel for a week-long trip to London for my birthday so we stayed at the Levin. It was great. The hotel is literally steps from Harrods (maybe about 15 steps?) and the Knightsbridge tube stop, as well as a block from Sloane Street and the Equadorian Embassey (where you can waive to J. Assange). It was extremely quiet, which was important to me because I'm a light sleeper. Hearing it was my birthday, the hotel generously upgraded us to a larger room with a sitting area (#34), which was great for some extra room to unpack. The staff was very helpful providing directions and making reservations. The contiential breakfast included in the room price consided of yogurt, granola (and various toppings for each) and small pastries, as well as made-to-order espresso drinks. They were happy to bring it up to the room for you. While there is no gym, you can get plenty of exercise walking around town or going for a run in Hyde Park a few blocks away.

Just know that if you think you'll be going up and down from your room and have mobility problems, this probably isn't the hotel for you. The elevator basically fits one small person at a time and is slow. Otherwise, you have to walk up several flights of stairs.

My fiancé and I have been lucky enough to stay in many fine hotels over the years but the Levin Hotel was quite exceptional.

There was genuine warmth and feeling unique to the Levin that made our stay not only extremely comfortable but unique.

Firstly, the staff were magnificent. They made us feel at home and as if we were Levin regulars. Nothing was too much trouble and we were accommodated to the highest standards for our entire 6-night stay.

With a taxi rank at the door of Harrods- that is twenty seconds walk from the Levin and Knightsbridge Metro station a foot away from that- the location was especially convenient. Having said that, Knightsbridge is known for some of the best shopping and restaurants and can located within walking distance from the Levin.

The rooms were perfect- elegant and well appointed with beautiful sheets and Kheil’s and Bulgari toiletries and a deep bath in a marble bathroom. Often we’d return ‘home’ to see an apple and a note about the following days weather forecast.

On those super cold nights, it was lovely just to be able to disappear downstairs and to the cosy surrounds of the Le Metro (The Levin Hotel’s restaurant/ wine bar) where the food and wine also excellent.

So, in our three-week trip, our stay at the Levin was a definite highlight and we cannot recommend it enough! It certainly made it harder to return home!

Room Tip: I imagine they are all fab rooms so you will be fine!
