Everything was perfect in outlaws restaurant where we had lunch. We truly couldnt complain about one thing, we can't wait to try the other outlaw restaurants when we get home to Cornwall! Head chef Tom Brown and his team have a real gem of a restaurant, we can't wait to return!

We just spend a long weekend in London with our two teens and stayed three nights at The Capital Hotel. They felt it was a little bit to ‘old timers’ :-) – my wife and I loved it. Upon arrival (at 10am) we were warmly greeted by the door man and the receptionist. And despite the early arrival we were,... More

Very correct taking care of guests - I warmly recommend the hotel. Geert De... More

Just returned from three nights in London. Beautifully presented hotel, ideal location superb service. Two comments: 1. Friends who had previously visited had said that the Classic Queen rooms were big enough - they were wrong. To be fare to the hotel they do say that they are ideal for the single traveller. 2.

I just stayed at the Capital ten years after my first visit and I was pleased to still find it a very charming and classy property.

Even though being half a block away from Harrod´s may be considered a great location, nowadays you seriously doubt you are standing on English soil..

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
