This is a 25 room hotel in a 19th century building. It is on a quiet side street in Bulgravia. Nice safe neighborhood. No buses or truck traffic. It is in the triangle of Knightsbridge, Victoria and Sloane Sq tube stops. We stayed in the Churchill room on the 3rd floor. Spacious but not pristine if you are particular (... More

I wanted to explore a different area, after staying in Soho, Bloomsbury and Shoreditch previously. At this hotel, you kinda feel like you're staying at someone's house. The entire staff was very welcoming. Even though it was just me, they placed me on the top floor with two twin beds. There's no air conditioning which I think is standard for... More

If you want a pleasant hotel, beautiful building and helpful service, the diplomat Hotel has it. Although there is no bar or restaurant, there are plenty around and more with a few minutes walk to Sloan Square area. Loved my stay here and staff were terrific.

Excellent value for this charming little hotel in a great location. The room was on the small side but with a very comfortable bed. Bathroom was clean and well provided and staff very accommodating and friendly. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. I would definitely return again without hesitation.

Great location - in the heart of fashionable Belgravia. All the best shops, boutiques, restaurants, tourist sites within walking distance. Very helpful staff and warm hospitality. Clean and comfortable rooms, decorated in the style of the Victorian classics (late 19th century), which corresponds to the style of the building itself and its location. Powerful shower that recoups the small size... More

This hotel is one of the best of the many former private houses that have been turned into hotels in this attractive part of London. It retains some of its elegance with a beautiful staircase, and one of the best rooms on the first floor was possibly a drawing room in its heyday. It has a large bay window and... More

Good hotel and great location- A stone throw from Sloane Square. Very quiet location. The hotel used to be a private residence and date back to the Victorian era. The elevator is quite compact and old but worked fine. The price is reasonable considering the location

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.
