One of the best hotels I have ever been in. Everyone was friendly, helpful and eager to please. The food was very good. The concierge solved an impossible task. I would highly recommend staying here. location is excellent and rooms have everything you would expect from a top hotel in London. Will definitely return.

This is true luxury hotel with wonderful and large rooms, especially for downtown London. The staff is exquisitely trained, polite, and helpful. It is expensive and worth every pound. The restaurant is excellent with its own well-earned big reputation, with a likewise well trained staff. They also tolerate obvious Yanks quite nicely, thank you.

We have stayed here a few times. I like the fact that it is so understated and a bit hidden. Inside the style is modern but with a good warmth. The room was very comfortable and well appointed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Made us feel at home.

This little gem is located in the Belgravia section of London is a well kept secret. We loved the location, the quiet halls and the easy walk to the Piccadilly Tube line.

Staying in Belgravia

Neighborhood Profile
Belgravia
Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic residences in London, sophisticated and upscale Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw away to the north, and some of Europe’s best shopping is nearby as well.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Halkin by COMO is a haven of luxury in the heart of London’s Belgravia with the shopping of Mayfair and Knightsbridge both within a 10-minute walk. With a discreet, efficient approach to service, everything about The Halkin is about elegant understatement and its intimate feel. With just 41 rooms and suites, The Halkin is a true boutique hotel. Bespoke Italian design is combined with subtle nuances of Oriental influence with wools, silks and linens in taupes and creams. Rooms are furnished with soft carpets and warm wood panelling, and boast some of the largest bathrooms in London. The hotel restaurant Ametsa with Arzak Instruction,is a unique collaboration between Elena Arzak – voted Veuve Clicquot World’s Best Female Chef in 2012 – along with her father Juan Mari Arzak, and Mikel Sorazu, Igor Zalakain and Xabier Gutierrez.Ametsa’s approach is rooted in the traditions of ‘New Basque Cuisine’, pairing the earthy flavours and techniques of Spain’s Basque region with modern, surprising twists featuring locally-sourced and organic produce from land and sea. ... more   less
