I decided to stay in Egerton House because of the high ratings the hotel has at TripAdvisor.
I spend 4 nights there, at a Classic Double room. What I liked most was all the concern with small details (for instance, it´s very nice to come back to your room, after a long day walking, and find your bed ready to sleep, with your slippers there and a chocolate on your pillow!). And it´s so nice to be called by your name by the sttaf!
The hotel is located between 2 subway stations (Knightsbridge and South Kesington), both within walking distance. Perfect! There are many cafés, restaurants (try Orsini´s, at 8A Thurloe Place, opposite to V&A museum, delicious Italian food!), stores (Harrods is just 3 or 4 blocks away) and museums nearby.
I stayed at room # 34. It was spacious enough, with nice decoration and everything was very clean. As I mentioned before, none detail is forgotten. The room has all the amenities you may need (including iron and iron board, magazines, newspapers). You also find a "welcome tray", with tea, coffee, italian coffee maker, a cake, and you can ask for some cream). The wi fi was very good, but you can access internet through the TV.
The bathroom was large and very clean. It´s great to find out the marble floors are heated. You also can watch your favorite show while taking a shower, as there´s a TV set there. Toiletries are very nice as well.
Service couldn´t be better. All the sttaf is very well trained to assist you with everything. They are very polite, helpful and pleasant, and the hospitality they show is really amazing. You don´t feel "just another guest". They ask you how your day was and call you by your name. Definitely, they make a difference! Upon my arrival, I was informed that I could have a free martini at the hotel´s bar, but unfortunately I didn´t have it.... I know Antonio´s martinis are known to be the best in London...
Sylvain and another guy at the reception desk helped me very much when I asked if the hotel could send an item for me, by mail (something that I bought and didn´t fit inside my luggage...). Back to Brazil, my mail order was waiting for me at hoem. Thank you!
The guy who receveid me at the first day (and carried my luggage to the room) was awesome (unfortunately I forgot his name). His is tall, brown hair, tanned. He gave me many tips about the city and about my stay.
I had a short talk with the girl who cleaned my room (Inga) and she was so great! Once again, I didn´t feel "just another guest"...
I had breakfast at the hotel once (as my rate didn´t include it). It´s a bit expensive, but it was very nice. Complete English breakfast, including smoked salmon. On the other days, I had breakfast nearby (there are lots of places where you can have it ).
I really enjoyed my stay at Egerton House. A perfect "home from home". Although it is not a huge hotel, with a huge lobby and a huge bar, you have a VIP treatment. I definitely will come back and highly recommend this hotel.
