Review of The Halkin Hotel, London

Central and quiet location, fine and classy hotel

The Halkin was for our family (two adults and a teen) the ideal hotel for a sightseeing trip to London. It is conveniently located (near Hyde Park and The Harrods) but in a quiet neighbourhood (Belgravia), and the next tube station is not even five minutes away.

The hotel is rather small, but has a good Thai restaurant (1 Michelin star rated), a nice bar and also a fitness centre. We didn’t visit the latter, but we went to the restaurant where we enjoyed very good, authentic food. We also had delicious breakfasts in the same place (no buffet but a menu with a broad selection).

Our room was a studio suite offering far enough space for the three of us. It was modernly furnished and had a very comfortable, not too soft bed, furthermore it was equipped with a (not too efficient) air-condition. Through the window you had a look on the garden of the adjacent apartment house. The bathroom wasn’t very spacious but had all the necessary items in it (separate shower).

All in all, the Halkin is a very good choice for a stay in London and breakfast there is hardly to beat.

Date of stay: May 2009
