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.

Nothing wrong with this hotel for the price. Central location, clean and tidy with a lift that most pre-date the war. A big shout out for Mellina on reception who sewed by button back on my dinner jacket for me as I was leaving to attend the dinner I was going to - fabulous service!

This hotel was chosen on location and price because it was within walking distance of a dinner I was attending. The hotel is dated in some of its appearance such as the open lift which would not look out of place in an episode of Poirot but then it is a listed building. I was given the Chester Room for my £160 which was absolutely fine. The bed was good and I had a good nights sleep. The lighting is a bit quirky in that the chandelier in the ceiling seemed to have three 1 million watt bulbs in with no shades which created a very harsh light - best left switched off. The two bedside lights seemed to be not working at first but I then found the master switch for them on the headboard hidden behind the stacked up pillows. There was also a useful lamp to use until I found the switch. There is no aircon and despite the freezing temperatures outside at the end of January, I could only open the bottom of the window six inches for health and safety and the radiator belted out heat all night. I was too hot which may have only been partly due to the alcohol I had consumed earlier. The water in the tap is not drinkable but there are water coolers on each floor to obtain cold water. There is a bath with just a hand held shower which was fine for one night. I realised that the arm of the chair in the room was broken which I reported on departure so you can check and see if it has been glued back on. Payment was requested when I arrived which I found a little unusual but perhaps they have had bad experiences or I looked dodgy! Overall, the staff were friendly and I enjoyed my stay. I think they need to do a bit more selective refurb and get an expert in to review the rooms, or at least the one I had, to make simple improvements.

Enjoyed our four day stay at this fabulous property right on the ocean with breathtaking views from our 34 Th floor room. The pools with a Kids pool away from the adults, the tropical decor and swaying palms, make this Hilton Hotel one of our favourites.

If you want a five star experience, then book a five star hotel. However, if you want a pleasant stay in a charming old structure right in the heart of a great part of London, the Diplomat offers charm and friendly service at a great value. We actually stayed here two different times in the same week (trip to Cotswolds in between). What brought us back was value, friendly staff (George, Milena and Giancarlo at Reception, and Victor in Maintenance), and the charm of this former residence turned hotel. To be honest, the rooms get better the more you spend, but all rooms are a good value. There are a nice supermarket and ATM two blocks away, and tube stations within easy walk. We will stay here again on future trips to London.
