“A Gem!”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

Every aspect of this hotel is perfect! The staff, the rooms, the restaurants, the facilities and the location. The welcome you receive upon entering makes you feel as if the staff knows you and as if they are so glad to see you. The pool on the roof was a treat after a busy day in the summer. When you leave the Berkeley all you think about is when will you return.

I have been a regular guest at this fantastic hotel for over 10 years. Its one of my favorite hotels anywhere as it is flawless, personal, luxurious and avantgarde. This is a boutique hotel in the true meaning of the word. The pool and the spa overlooking the park on the top of the hotel is a unique feature. All the rooms are decorated individually and got a style that you would like to "copy / paste" to your own home. The food is incredible at all the restaurants as well as drinks from heaven in the bar. Location next to the park is unbeatable as well!

Room Tip: A renovated room!

I stayed here with my wife and young child for the first weekend in December and cannot speak highly enough of the hotel. The rooms,decor and food are all excellent but without doubt the service takes it to the very top level. All the staff were faultless and nothing was too much trouble. I really can't speak highly enough of this place and would recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in a top hotel in London. The spa was excellent and the rooftop pool a real gem which is unusual for a city hotel but was hugely appreciated after a long day outside. All in all a wonderful experience.

In the heart of Knightsbridge, this is one of the most exclusive hotels in London.
If you like a traditional stay and wish to receive the best service, this is the place to go.
A traditional hotel, with very gentle staff and a top-quality concierge service to book restaurants, theaters and whatever you wish.
The Blue Bar is excellent to have a drink in the evening and the Koffmann's restaurant is a French bistro serving delicious food!

Great service, not too in your face or over the top. Just right.

Room was lovely, looking over church. Bed was the most comfortable I have slept in.. except my own. The shame was climbing out of it when we had to leave.

We ate outside the hotel so had drinks in the blue bar beforehand. Service was excellent. Some fab olives... We had the Sancerre.. very good.

On returning back to the hotel after diner and a nice walk around the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park we had some coffees and a G&T in the other bar/restaurant area. The G&T was little strong even for me. But the coffees and biscuits/chocolates were very nicely done.

Breakfast was fab. One of the best I have had. The combination of a lovely full English and some tasty fruit, great selection of fresh bread was great.

All in all a great hotel and well worth the stay.

Christmas decorations also looked very cool.

Room Tip: Get one over looking the church at the rear. Quiet and very pretty.

Lovely, helpful staff who really pay attention to every detail. Beautiful room (as always) with a delightful bathroom. Fantastic breakfast with so much choice and the quality of all on offer was superb. Superbly situated for Knightsbridge nd Kensington.

A great hotel, centrally situated where the meaning of luxury and service knows no boundaries. the new spa adds to the experience as well as the rooftop swimming pool. Food is unparalleled and the Blue Bar has to be the best champagne bar in London.
