I booked a meeting room for an important client followed by lunch and they could not have been more helpful and professional. The room was decorated tastefully and the service was excellent. Lunch in The Michelin-starred Outlaws was outstanding. If you want a small, luxury, boutique, classic hotel next to Harrods and Sloane Street then this is absolutely it.

We have always been great fans of The Capital Hotel, and our most recent visit did not disappoint. The location is superb (1 minute walk to Harrods) and close to everything we wanted to do in London. The service staff are excellent and very accommodating. Highly recommended for business and pleasure visitors to London.

A perfect hotel for a short stay in Knightsbridge. Steps from Harrod's, great restaurants, and great shopping. Convenient to trains and buses. Amazing and attentive staff. Took two business trips in three months to London and wouldn't stay anywhere else. For longer stays, this might be a great place for you, but some things to consider: small lobby with no... More

Incredible location with fabulous staff! Best long pillows as well. Bottles of water for guests as they leave and great concierge. Really fabulous to have a drink before going out. They have great aperols in huge glasses. Great for any type of guest, have stayed here numerous times and will continue to.

Had my eye on staying here for several years..... The good.....fantastic location, very nice staff. The bad......as an Amex Centurion card holder, an "upgrade is given, if available". At check in having been given the room key I asked whether an upgrade had been given. The very friendly, nice young lady said no and looked at me inquisitively. She clearly... More

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighborhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
