Short visit to London for family shopping trip. This hotel is ideally positioned and was excellent throughout our stay. The bartender Duarte makes an exceptional expresso martini and the general manger Solomon Khaddour was personable and on hand to help in any way he could including some restaurants I didn’t know existed! All clean and Covid 19 compliant!! Highly recommended.

Rocked up here not knowing if they were open 2nd week in July looking for a drink after long day shopping in Harrods. To my surprise, the beautiful bar was open however no menus were available at the time of visiting. Only 4 other customers in the bar which is perfect if wanting an intimate drink away from the crowds. Normal Knightsbridge prices for drinks so expect to pay £15 upwards for a cocktail. Glass of wine £10 upwards plus service charge. Worth every penny in my books. The decor was beautiful with the correct amount of lighting. Bar manager was charming and professional. You must try the olives! Not a huge fan of olives but these ones served were amazing. I would revisit anytime I need a drink after shopping.

My family, friends & I recently stayed at The Capital to enjoy my 60th Birthday Celebrations. The hotel pulled out all the stops to make this a most memorable evening for me & a delightful overnight stay. Lorena made sure that everything was beautifully organised & the staff were impeccable at all times. It was truly a magical experience for me.

I have visit the hotel many times and every time is getting better! I visit London at least two times every year for business or some times for pleasure. This time was for pleasure. The breakfast is very nice always and the staff always friendly and helpful!!!The check in was very fast and the staff very polite and to the point! The location not to mention that is one of the best in london! This time I had the junior suite and I loved it! It is really spacious. I will be back when I will visit london next time.
