I would like to clarify that the guest booked the apartment house next door to the Capital hotel. As he booked a second stay later in the month here at the hotel in a junior suite we offered him to stay at your junior suite too. I do understand his disapointment in not having a apartment for this stay but he declined the offer to be at the Capital Hotel.
What a wonderful Hotel The staff were amazing and so very helpful. The room was so comfortable. I had a single room and it was perfect. I slept so well. In an excellent area so close to Harrods and shopping as well as the Knightsbridge Underground Station. Within walking distance of wonderful restaurants. Just loved it and will return on my next visit.
Flew EOS and took the Picadilly line to the Knighsbridge Station which is less than a block from this 5 star gem. Had a good sized mini-suite on the 6th floor which included 1 1/2 bathrooms.
Internet rate of $713 US including a full breakfast in their handsome dining room was a bargain - based on current UK prices - and included a private car to Greenwich where we boarded the "SilverShadow.". The well trained staff was outstanding and the cocierge recommended dinner at Toto which was an excellent choice. Excellent location close to Harrod's and on a quiet street.
We heard about The Capital from friends and just loved it. It is everything you'd expect from a very English hotel (except with warm and efficient service!). So much attention to detail is paid here - from the beds and linen to the delicacies served for afternoon tea. We'll be back!
We stayed for three nights to begin a trip to the UK and found this an extremely pleasant small hotel.
Particularly enjoyed the restaurant - they have an amazing chef! I recommend at least one dinner there - did not find better in all of London.
Only drawback, from a North American perspective, is the relatively small size of the room.
I stayed at The Capital for 3 nights on May 20, 21 & 22, 2007. I had a junior suite with a king bed. Separate sitting room with loveseat and chair and good reading lights. Sitting room and bedroom were large and very nicely decorated. Clean and well maintained. Small bath with shower over tub always seemed a bit stuffy. Bath always seemed too warm--couldn't turn off the heated towel rack. Two small TVs, newer flat screen in the bedroom. Room was directly on Basil Street, but was surprisingly quiet.
Excellent Knightsbridge location, just a few hundred feet from Harrods and not much further to the Knightsbridge tube station.
Shortcomings: weak HVAC--separate units in each room could barely keep room cool when outside temperature was cool to moderate; one HVAC unit was noisy and neither was quiet; small, stuffy bath; not well sound-proofed between rooms--some voices penetrate the walls, especially in the bath.
Outstanding restaurant--rated two Michelin stars. I had the best dinner of my 17-day trip here. The delightful restaurant room is also the great breakfast location.
I also stayed at The Stafford in London earlier in this trip. I liked both hotels very much. They offer similar experiences in different top neighborhoods at similar cost. The Stafford was quieter room-to-room, The Capital has a nicer restaurant, The Stafford nicer baths. Both have excellent staffs with The Capital's a bit more personal. I probably will return to both. I rate The Stafford slightly higher on the basis of fewer shortcomings.
