Good Hotel Guide Review

Location, location, location; the small but perfectly formed Levin is just a credit card toss from Harrods, close to the designer stores and cultural hubs of Knightsbridge and a stroll from the green lungs of Hyde Park. Guests laud the accommodating, knowledgeable service, overseen by general manager Joanne Taylor-Stagg, who also runs the larger luxurious sibling, The Capital, a couple of doors away (see entry). They also praise the stylish interiors, lurking behind the red brick facade with echoes of a New York town house, from the pale duck egg blue lobby with Art Nouveau flourishes to the striking light installation plunging five floors through the stairwell. Rooms mix crisp yet warm contemporary interiors with Designers Guild fabrics, marble bathrooms and Nespresso machines; light-washed junior suites overlook Basil Street with sofa beds for children, while higher and rear rooms may be quieter. Continental breakfast is served in the lobby – more significant options await at The Capital – while the bright yet discreet basement bistro offers informal all-day dining, perhaps spinach, blue cheese and red onion frittata, or chicken and leek pie.

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.

'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
