“Shhh! Don't tell anyone about this little gem of a place ;-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This place is a bit like a speakeasy, with an elevator that opens directly onto the street and very discreet signage. The location in Knightsbridge (a block and a half behind Harrods) is fantastic. I've stayed here twice - once with the family and once on business. Depending on the time of year and what's going on in London, you can find some good deals here (usually listed on the website). The rooms are small but well appointed with nice bathrooms (and good water pressure in the shower). The staff is very friendly and helpful. In good weather the terrace is fantastic for breakfast. I'll stay there again to be sure.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Unusual and quiet little hotel very conveniently located right in the heart of Knightsbridge. The rooms are not large but very comfortable and not too expensive. The breakfast was good and the staff friendly.Getting in and out with the unusual lift can be a challenge sometimes but overall a good place to stay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

A quaint little hotel accessed through a nearly unmarked door into an ancient lift hardly a hundred yards from Harrods. Inside the rooms are clean and comfortable and the service excellent. It is a bit more like a bed and breakfast with no bar or dining room, roof terrace apparently is used for breakfast though clearly not in December. The location is excellent, close to Knightsbridge tube station, with Harrods etc. just a short walk. It is an ideal place to stay when you have things to do and want a convenient base.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

The location is very attractive: two minutes from Harrods and the Knightsbridge underground station (and just in face there is the Embassy of Ecuador, now famous courtesy of Mr Assange). You enter through a 19th century strange elevator, with the key they will provide to you, and are in fact inside an old English home - nice but not particularly fancy. The breakfast is good but with limited choice. The bathroom in what was supposed to be a superior room was quite old and not renovated too recently. The staff is co-operative and mostly made of beautiful Lithuanian girls. For the basic services it offers it's a bit expensive, but this is London and nothing is cheap.
