Welcoming guests for 47 years The Capital Hotel in Knightsbridge boasts classic British style and service, an envious location and a great history as one of London's first boutique hotels. An award winning grand hotel in miniature, The Capital Hotel has all the advantages of a large establishment, yet exudes warmth, understated exclusivity and personal attention to detail. This discreet London Hotel and adjacent luxury Knightsbridge apartments sit proudly on Basil Street, close to Harrods and just a few minutes from Knightsbridge Tube Station as well as Harvey Nichols, the Victoria & Albert Museum, Hyde Park and the designer shops of Sloane Street. Next door sits the Levin Hotel, a modern 12 bedroom townhouse. The group also manages The London Bakery that delivers to high end restaurants, hotels and clubs across London, as well as at The Capital.

Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.

This is a great hotel. Perfect location and very friendly staff. Bathroom was a bit on the small side (even though we had been upgraded to a Premium King room) but that wasn't a problem. Had fantastic lunch in the restaurant (Outlaws). Comfy bed.

They have all the standard London stations (BBC, etc), some US channels (CNN, MSNBC, Fox News), and some foreign channels, but I wasn't really in the room that often to look at TV.

I am presuming you mean Euston Station. Difficult to be precise because one can never predict what the traffic will be like. It is very very easy to pick up a taxi and in normal traffic conditions, 40 minutes should be more than adequate but difficult to predict traffic.
