Good Hotel Guide Review

Grand-hotel luxury mixes with small-scale intimacy at this ‘immaculate’ town house hotel, close to Hyde Park and the museums. The creation of David Levin, the hotel has recently been bought by Richard Chiu of Warwick Hotels and Resorts, who also owns the neighbouring Capital (see entry); the staff are ‘superb’ – ‘interested, and interesting’. Pass the ‘spectacular’ light installation on the way to the smart, modern bedrooms, each with air conditioning, ‘very good lighting’, a marble bathroom with underfloor heating. Treats await: besides the chic teas and capsule coffee-maker, find a champagne minibar and a selection of books to borrow. Splurge on the spacious junior suite, its large windows looking down on the neighbourhood; especially good for a family, it has a large convertible sofa bed. In the informal basement bistro, try classics such as Cornish crab, coriander, chilli cake; confit duck leg, spring onions, mashed potatoes – then wash it down with a glass of something from a wine estate in the Loire valley. Michelin-starred sister restaurant Outlaw’s at The Capital is next door. Breakfast brings ‘especially good croissants and pastries from the owner’s bakery’.

Guest comments

'Excellent. Every bit as good as on our first vist four years ago. Immaculate is the word that comes to mind here: everything is just about perfect. The staff are superb; friendly, helpful, interested and interesting. They remembered previous conversations and picked them up later. Our standard room was not large but was very well appointed and had very good lighting, we could actually read! The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was excellent. Lunch and breakfast in the Metro in the basement were good, we especially liked the croissants and pastries which turned out be come from the owner's bakery!Mr Levin sets high standards. ' - Robert and Shirley Lyne - March, 2013
'Expensive but it offers peace and comfort. An ideal base for shopping. Friendly reception. Courteous manager. Bedroom with reasonable but not perfect sound proofing, effective air conditioning, tasteful minimalist furniture. Breakfast in slightly cramped Metro had prompt service, a varied buffet table, but insipid coffee. ' - Robert Gower - November, 2011
