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

Small, cozy reception...lovely professional service. My room was in the basement (The Cromwell) but was lovely, big twin room, with two beds, night tables, window, tv, tea/coffee facilities, desk and lamp. A separate changing area and wardrobe, very nice bathroom with shower and large bathtub. Complimentary slippers and toiletries. Attention to detail and clean. Great service by a catalonian receptionist,... More

It's the best bang for buck my girlfriend and I could find in London when looking for a central location. Great breakfast and caring and attentive staff who looked after our needs always with a smile!

Really nice big rooms, amazing staff worth mentioning George he is a great help, we originally booked single he upgraded our room to a big double for only £20 more. The decor was old fashioned but suited the nature of the building. Highly recommend

I stayed here for couple of nights with a group of colleagues. We called up the hotel and made reservations and were offered good discounts. Our reason for choosing the hotel was proximity to our workplace as we were planning a few night outs. The hotel itself is a converted Belgravia house as other people have commented and thus is...

First impression was that the hotel has a lot of character, but is quite dusty and unkempt, with tired looking staff that don't look so keen on providing service according to their prices. Great location but well overpriced for the poor cleanses and outdated hotel.

Stayed one night in a tiny cramped single room for £140 The tiny room was hot and stuffy with no air conditioning and so dated and old fashioned with stained, chipped furniture and dirty net curtains. Sound proofing is non existent so you can hear every noise from the next room..... Asked to change rooms but fully booked and told... More

This hotel is located in an extremely pleasant part of London, and is a converted Belgravia house only altered enough to make it a hotel of a somewhat old fashioned kind. If someone leaves the doors of the cage lift open and you have to walk down, enjoy it because the staircase is still elegant. They have some single rooms,... More

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.
