  2. “The room was clean and very functional. the bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom nice. The check-in staff were very nice and the concierge excellent in dealing with me before some very pushy older gentleman who wouldn't wait for service. The location is convenient, if a bit soulless.”

  5. “No part of this hotel disappointed. The location is excellent right by Hyde Park Corner. Room service was prompt, the breakfasts fresh, the room was large, dark and quiet. I would recommend this hotel.”

  7. “My wife and I spent three nights at the hotel and very much enjoyed our first stay at the Halkin (and look forward to returning!). We were in a superior room on the 4th floor - the bathrooms were quite large with floor-to-ceiling marble, the room was tastefully done, and despite being rather close to the elevators we did not hear any sounds from the hallways or neighboring rooms. The service was excellent as well - we were out one day from morning until early evening and although our room had already been turned down for the evening, the housekeeping staff were more than happy to return to the room and tidy up after we departed for dinner. Justin Wallerson (concierge) provided some great advice both in advance of our arrival and again after we arrived at the hotel - and his suggestions were accurate and helpful. Truly a pleasant and knowledgable person to deal with! We also loved the small-neighborhood feel of the hotel, despite being only minutes from great shopping.”

  10. “Not a very big sized hotel, overstaffed and with all the glitz, but a typical British understatement of a perfect hotel. Service was personnal and room service fast. Morning newspaper, friendliness, flowers and so on. and food - was above average ( one star Thai restaurant ). Room very spacious with all what you need and more. Shopping at some walking minutes from Knightsbridge ( Harrods and all the others )”

  11. “Despite the traditional facade of the building, the interior is ultramodern and very sleek. I got a room upgrade thanks to my TabletPlus membership, and found the accomodations to be spacious. That's a not a word found in the lexicon of most hotels, especially ones in London. In addition to a large King bed, I was treated to a comfy L-shaped sofa, dressing room area (yes, it's true), and a bathroom with room for a separate bath and shower. I also rate hotels by the view outside the window. It's not that I'm willing to pay a premium for a park view that I'll likely only enjoy for a moment as I draw the blinds and go to bed, but I think it shows a lot about a hotel when they think about what lies outside your window. In this case I had a view of an enclosed courtyard, which created a serene feeling consistent with the overall karma of the hotel.I even arranged for dinner at the Thai restaurant on premises and was pleasantly surprised to find that the reviews meshed pretty well with the service and the quality of the food. I would recommend you just go with the tasting menu and tell your waiter what you like and don't like, otherwise you'll take an hour to order and you'll mangle the names of the dishes unless you're just back from the Orient.”
