This was my third visit to the hotel. This time I had an apartment that was next to the hotel (in between the Capital and the Levin hotels) but fully serviced by hotel staff (including an excellent room service breakfast). The rooms were spacious and well maintained. And the location can't be beat. Harrods is steps away and Harvey Nichols and Sloane Street are slightly further away. The Piccadilly Line has a Tube stop in front of Harrods, and Hyde Park, the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum are all within easy walking distance.
The hotel's restaurant, Outlaws is an excellent seafood spot, with fresh and carefully prepared dishes. The hotel also serves an excellent afternoon tea, in lovely room just off the reception area. The tea is not completely traditional (the pastries are more French than English), but was excellent nonetheless. The service at the hotel is superb and attentive in all respects.
It would be hard to beat The Capital's combination of charm, small scale intimacy, superb service, great amenities and superb location.
