“Very, very good.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2009

I have stayed at some stellar hotels in my time, and this definitely ranks up there. The hotel is intimately preented, and the staff have really been drilled on the essence of customer relations. The souble room myself and my partner stayed in was very clean and comfortable, if not a little on the "cozy" side. A very relaxing experience all the same.

The Halkin provides really spacious and nice rooms rooms for the price especially in London. It is a small hotel but has a decent gym and good service. The lobby is rather bland but once you step out of the elevators to go to the rooms it is a lot more interesting.
The rooms are very modern and have and interesting architecture to them. The bed is extremely comfortable and the bathroom very spacious.

I love the location as well

It is definitely my go to place when visiting London and not wanting to pay a fortune for a hotel.

  • Liked — Very comfortable, and also full of charcter
  • Disliked — nothing

London, Belgravia, Full five star. This could have been the whole review. However, here's a few more.

The hotel is relatively small giving you the impression of a more personal service. Front desk staff is polite and effective. Hardware relatively new. The rooms are well designed, and give you the feeling of relaxation. Their size is ok, typical london hotel room but of well implemented luxury.

Marble bathrooms exceptionaly clean and shiny.

The address is quiet, although you are in the heart of London. Everything is close by. Shopping, eating, walking etc. Very easy to find your way around.

Do not leave unless you try the restaurant. Simply excellent.

I did not know about this hotel, but i thinki everuone should, as it is so good, i wish i could stay there all the time!

I did not know Belgravia, but it is a very fancy part of London, with only the best resturants and shops. It is close to Kightsbridge and the Hyde Park, but feals like a little village.

The Halkin looks like a house, but inside is so luxirious, you will be so happy to stay here. I loved the bed and the funny shaped walls, it was great to be somewhere diffrent.

The staf were very formal, and knew alot about the area. They also helped me find a resturant with Ababic food, becaus ei don't like English food. The staff look so smart, and are so kind

My fiancee booked one of the Thai cookery courses that the hotel does so we decided to stay for the weekend. The hotel website is easy to use and does some special deals.
We stayed in a superior room which was a perfect size for 2 nights. The room was very comfortable and peaceful and the staff very efficient and friendly. We particularly liked the waiter at breakfast who reminded us of Jimi Mistry of Guru and East is East fame.
The shower was good and the products were great. The staff were excellent and assisted us with a booking at Benares on the second night. Although we wished we had eaten at Nahm as we found Atul Kotcher's restaurant disappointing. And we have eaten and cooked a lot of curries in our time. But that would have been greed as we had lunch there that day and the cookery course!
The cookery course was excellent and the lunch following it was superb. Yum yum!
A definite recommendation from us and we will be back sooner rather than later. An early Xmas shopping trip beckons me thinks!

Oh my old friend...I came to you first in the early 90's as a blossom eyed young buck who thought he would rule the world. I felt so sexy back in those days in my skinny pants and tight shirts. Sitting next to Bono in the lobby bar. Watching as you snuck out celebrities into the back alley. Feeling a bit like a celebrity myself. It was all so decadent. You were so wonderful before...and if longevity is the cornerstone of true excellence in a hotel you are by far one of the great hotels of the world. I salute you. Because as great hotels have opened left and right in London, and perhaps taken some of the celebrities with them, you still shine as brightly as you did 15 years ago. Perhaps better. As for me, and those who have stayed here for years, not only has the hotel aged gracefully in a modern sense - it retains the same essence and beautiful scent that makes for nostalgic reminiscence every time I walk through the door. The Halkin was always, and still is, completely flawless, It easily ranks as one of my top 10 hotels in the world. And for me London is just not London If I am not peering out my window on an early rainy morning to watch the effervescent stodginess of stodgy little Belgravia. And opening those special heavy room doors for another day in giddy London.

The Scorpion.....
