My wife and I just returned from our honeymoon. We stayed at The Halkin at both the beginning and ending of our trip for a total of six nights. The first three nights we stayed on the top floor in a Superior Room. The last three nights we were upgraded to a Deluxe Room which was on the third floor.
Both rooms were spacious and had a comfortable bed. Both were very private. The location was great - on a quiet street close to a tube station. Getting taxis was also very easy. The staff was very pleasant and eager to please. Both rooms were EXTREMELY clean. We ordered room service a couple of times which was prompt and delicious. We ate breakfast once in the restaurant, but it was a bit pricey. We spent some time in the bar - and while the drinks were also a little pricey, the atmosphere and the staff were excellent.
We had two minor complaints: 1) they had issues with the lift. 2) The water pressure in the showers of both rooms was entirely too strong... yes, too strong.
I highly recommend The Halkin!
