Very good service, great location.The nearest hotel from Harrod's.
The staff is very attentive to all your needs. The food is very good. The decoration is a bit classical in the rooms but you feel like in a typical british hotel. Very nice selection of whisky in the bar.

Thank you so much for your review, I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay at the hotel. Cesar does indeed have a wonderful stock of amazing whiskeys in the bar and as the youngest Keeper of the Quiach he is very involved with the entire industry. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to London.

Kind regards

Kate

Another splendid three nights here. Great hospitality great food. Really liked the new fish restaurant. Set lunch is incredible value at the moment and some interesting wines by the glass. Home from home in London. Nothing more needs to be said!

Room Tip: Ask for one at the front

You could not find a more welcoming hotel, were the staff are always there to meet your every need with a great smile. The hotel makes you feel at home, food, wine and service is the best we have had in London [and we have stayed at all the top hotles]. The Capital is the best, always moving forward but always with tradition and real values at heart.

Amazing location, especially if you like shopping, simply a great hotel, who could ask for more.

Room Tip: all the rooms are great, depends if you are on business alone or as a couple, De Lux double is great...

Having stayed here four or five times over the years, I highly recommend The Capital.
The location, tucked in a small street behind Harrods is both quiet and central, the service second to none, and the food is, quite simply outstanding. Highly recommended.

Stayed in here with my wife and must say that we were very impressed by this hotel. Service was excellent. What really thrilled us was a gentle combination of interior decor. The rooms are exactly as their web puts it - spacious, elegant and good looking. Will definitely come back and recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Junior suite

Rooms are small but the bar and restaurant are very good. Great for walking. Also close to several other outstanding restaurants and neighborhoods. Safe area for a post dinner stroll. Staff was very nice and quite helpful. Hotel was very clean. No on site fitness but with walking running at the park right around the corner you really did not miss it.

My husband and I stayed at The Capital the last week in November, 2012. We usually go to London every November and have walked past The Capital many times and finally decided to stay there. It was a wonderful experience. The room was a classic room, small but very cozy and comfortable. The staff at The Capital are really what made our visit so much more enjoyable - efficient, helpful, friendly. The breakfast had a great selection. We ate dinner in the restaurant, Outlaw's, and it was a great dining experience as well. Once again the food and the service were good. This will be our hotel of choice from now on.
