“Little Oasis in Londons bustle”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Peace and quite in the heart of London?. Yes, it's possible. Just make your next stay in London at the Halkin. My wife and I enjoy the buzz of a big city, but when we switch off we like to leave it behind. And in this little corner of Belgravia you certainly can. Great sized room, we took a Deluxe. Bathroom, very adequate even to accommodate my wife's abilities to clutter even the smallest of extremities. And did I mention that it was quiet! Staff were exceptional from the front desk, to the excellent concierge staff. All your recommendations were much appreciated, thank you. location, near perfect, literally in Buckingham Palace's back garden. Very short walk to Hyde Park, for that morning jog. And an easy walk to Harrods, although not back, with all those bags! Breakfast was great , along with the service. A small, boutique hotel, with warmth and, did I mention quiet? Happily recommend the Halkin.

Room Tip: Deluxe room was a comfortable size

The Halkin is a fairly small hotel located in a quiet side street in Belgravia. Staff were very efficient and helpful during check-in and throughout our short stay. The rooms were extremely comfortable and well-equipped, with good beds, efficient air conditioning and well-equipped (and fairly large) bathrooms. This was our first stay, but I would certainly recommend for those looking for an alternative to London's larger/grander hotels.

Stayed with my family and we enjoyed ever bit of the hotel. Small and very classy hotel. Centrally located but on a quiet street. Modern and comfortable rooms, with very friendly and helpful hotel staff. A really outstanding hotel.

I have stayed at this hotel quiet a few times but had not been there for some time. It is as good as ever with the service simply outstanding . I would come here again and again but my budget does not always allow this.

This is the first time I have taken the time to write a review but the recognition upon arrival from the staff at reception to the people in room service is simply amazing. It is a special weekend away for me as i live very close to London and it is so worth it.

I do tend to eat out as the location is great and you are close to everything. The hotel is located in a quiet residential street.

thank you Halkin .

Reading the excellent reviews our expectations were really "enormous" but I
can confirm that this hotel is oustanding. Quiet, large and beautifully decorated room and
bathroom, fruitplate and newspaper every day, free internet. Very friendly and efficient
staff, greeting you with your name, you really feel at home..
Location is perfect, in walking distance to Knightsbridege and Piccadilly,
Desserves to be in the 5 best of London..

I am going to be really simple in my review.

This hotel was beautiful, friendly and some of the best pancakes I have ever had.

We stayed in a standard room and had plenty of space to relax when we were not working or site seeing.

The staff was amazing and that's an understatement.

My only negative was that it's location is so quiet it took us a day or two to finally find some pubs and food within walking distance but once found I was a happy man.

Thank you for your "Great Hotel" review and comments. Always nice when the only negative is also a positive but will make sure the concierge pre-empt that next time.

Quiet elegance and modern chic.

We've toured around London very extensively. THIS hotel, staff, and neighborhood were the best.

Pros: Clean modern design, chic elegance, personal service, peaceful atmosphere, PEACEFUL neighborhood yet so close to tube stops and other important London locations. Easy access to transportation, shopping, restaurants, sightseeing. Knowledgeable and helpful staff.

We really enjoyed the ambiance and after a busy day returning to this peaceful neighborhood and peaceful hotel.

Very unique room amenities…..computerized lighting controls, environmental controls, and elegant wood paneling.

Cons: Breakfast in the dining room, although excellent quality, was very slow to come from the kitchen. Internet service in our room was unreliable.

We would DEFINITELY return for the personal service, convenient location, beautiful and quiet neighborhood, elegant surroundings.
