“A fine stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

It was a last minute decision and not sure if it was the right one. However, upon arrival our expectations were satisfied and s igh of relief that we did make teh right decision. The studio suite we stayed in was wonderfully spacious enough for our toddler girl to feel at home and the bathroom was excellent. What I liked was the two cubboards so my wife and I didn't have to share. The amount of light in the morning coming into the room once the blinds were opened is welcoming and the view is marvelous. The location of the hotel is very convenient as well as peaceful. Everyone was friendly and helpful. All in all a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Studio suite is roomy and bright.

The Belgraves is one of these really nice surprises, unique in its genre, located where you would expect it the least. It has the personality of a Kensington trendy hotel with the luxury of a Mayfair palace. Our room was a Junior Suite over looking the small private park. We loved the bathtub enclosed in glass and allowing you a peak at the city. The location is ideal for those who want a proximity to every tourist attraction but want the feeling of retiring to their residential neighborhood at night. The food was great. Indian and Continental flavors on the menu. A hype bar, busy but not overcrowded. And a short stroll to Amaya, our favorite Indian 1 Michelin star restaurant.
A final touch is the cool looking doorman / butler, always ready to fetch something for the kids in a nearby store. It is not a kid hotel by design but families are spoiled by the kind attentions.

Won a stay at Belgraves through Mr and Mrs Smith and so went with high expectations.

First impressions were great, we arrived early and so our room wasn't ready - not a problem as we checked in anyway leaving our bags and set off to see the sights. Staff were helpful, making sure we had everything we needed when we checked in and directing us to the nearest tube station (about five minutes away in Sloane Square).

When we got back everything was ready for us and we were shown to our room. The room was good and all we expected from a high end boutique hotel. Great view looking over London towards the river - St Paul's, The Eye, The Shard all in view. Now the first criticism - excellently stocked mini bar including some pleasurable items from Coco de Mer but no tea and coffee in the room. Surely the refit could have run to a kettle or even better a Nespresso machine?

Dining in the restaurant that evening, presented the next obstacle - lack of light, mirrors and power. I managed to shave in the dimly lit bathroom, but my wife really struggled to sort here hair out. Resorting to standing on the bed to use the only mirror that was close enough for here to plug here straighteners into. This needs to be thought about a bit more - There really should be a mirror above the desk/dressing table and you should be able to get a decent light on by it for make up. The room basically just had low level ambient lighting - great for relaxing, not for getting ready to impress.

Meal in the restaurant was really nice, a really good choice, well could and nicely presented and the service was excellent. After dinner we moved to the bar which had a good feel to it with excellent alternative music and plenty of different areas to suit your mood and company. A good vibe for a Friday night.

After a good sleep in the comfortable beds, we were rudely awoken at 7 am by an alarm call - not cleared from the previous guest. The front desk were really apologetic when we mentioned this after breakfast and ensured it was removed for the next day. A nice touch on arrival back from a day of sight seeing was an apology note from the manager along with a box of champagne truffles. Breakfast on the first day was good - with the exception of the tea - can some one teach the staff to boil a kettle please!!

We ate out in the evening but took a night cap in the bar on our return and although a little quieter, still a pleasant place to be.

Service in the restaurant on the Sunday morning was a little slow, although the staff were friendly and helpful. It was disappointing to find the pastries were stale. When we complained, the waiter went away to get fresh ones, but they were no better, just warmed up!

Overall our stay was okay, I would have been disappointed if I had been picking up the whole tab. The hotel has a great feel to it, it is in a great location. The staff are brilliant, really friendly and helpful. But it is the detail that lets things down - the 'ambient' lighting in the rooms, the lack of a plug, mirror, light combo. The in ability to get a decent cuppa!!

London is last leg of our Europe holiday and I must say that it ended with a bang with our stay at Belgraves.

Belgraves is a small luxurious posh boutique hotel. Very conveniently located (nearest station is either Knightsbridge or Sloane Sq, about 5-7mins walk). Staff members made a load of difference - always welcoming and quick to ask if we need anything.

The room is of good size with contemporary and stylish interior design. My only gripe is that the lights are bit dim. The bed is totally totally comfortable which is so important after a long day out. The bathroom is great and the amenities are sufficient.

By the way, the hotel is near to Harvey Nichols and many other luxurious brands. Another plus point.

Will definitely recommend it!

My friends were taking me out for my Birthday, and they brought me to the belgraves hotel bar, which is a very stylish bar indeed.

the staff recommended we sat around in the snug they called it. a great place for small group.

the staff were excellent and efficient. the selection of whiskeys were among the best i had seen, and several of them went down beautifully.

the onion and balsamic popcorn they give out was amazing, the truffle one were not im afraid to say.

All in all a lovely little bar and i will be returning, mainly due to the friendlessness of the waitresses.

My wife and I stayed at Belgraves last weekend while passing through London. We had stayed in (and liked) the prior hotel at this address, but had not come since Belgraves opened. This is an excellent, thoroughly modern hotel whose staff members are cordial, capable, and eager to provide go service. On arrival, we needed a good bit of assistance, which desk and lobby staff provided promptly. Things worked as they should throughout our stay. Our room was altogether comfortable. We had a pleasant view of Belgravia Square. We ate two breakfasts in the hotel, both excellent and both well served. London is never inexpensive, but Belgraves' prices seemed fair to us, and consistent with the market. We will go back soon.

Room Tip: One wants the front, facing Belgravia Square. It is hard to imagine an unpeasant room on that side...

Stylish and sophisticated in this previously staid corner of Belgravia, this Hotel covers all the bases.
The rooms are chic and sleek. The interior design is contemporary yet comfortable. The beds are sleep inducing and I cannot wait to come and stay again.
Breakfast was delicious too, by the way. I have never seen such an extensive menu at that time in the morning!
Welcoming staff for whom nothing is too much trouble.

Room Tip: Get a room that faces east on one of the upper floors as you will see some of London's iconic si...
