“Outstanding. Simply the best London hotel we have ever stayed at.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

A classically beautiful hotel in the very heart of London. No grand intimidating entrance just a beautiful front door and a smiling doorman to greet you! Impeccable service, attention to detail and warm friendly staff. We stayed for our 15 yr anniversary - what a treat! We stayed in the impressive Dover Suite and were greeted by champagne and a gorgeous anniversary cake. What followed was even more special - see photo - but don't look if u want a surprise!!! Fantastic spa too. Truly our best anniversary hotel stay yet.

I stayed at Brown's for a 2 day conference in March 2012 and was extremely impressed by the attentive but unobtrusive service, professionally run conference facilities and the uniqueness of the property which is 11 Georgian townhouses combined into one hotel. My room was very comfortable with a lot of period features with very tasteful contemporary feel. Would highly recommend Donovan's Bar which great cocktails and some really interesting photographs on the wall.

Have stayed at Browns many times now either on holiday or on business and it's always a stellar performer. Excellent, efficient staff, nicely equipped rooms and a superb location. If I had any gripes it would be an internally slow lift and pokey awkward corridors but those are small matters in the context of what is an excellent London Hotel. The cooked breakfast is fantastic also.

Room Tip: Anywhere close to the lift or it can turn into a rabbit warren.

I arrived here with my husband from Paris after catching the Eurostar to St Pancras Station. We were checked in by a very friendly and helpful staff member who could even answer my questions about daily tube tickets. After a couple of hours site seeing and with the weather getting chilly we returned to the hotel mid afternoon a mite peckish. Luckily we were able to secure a table for the famous afternoon tea which really hit the spot; the room was cosy; the tea was piping hot and the sandwiches were fresh and dellicious.

The breakfast on the weekend was a very nice buffet with cooked items prepared to order. The restaurant HIX where it is served is at pains to source Brittish farm produce (there were even duck eggs available). The atmosphere on the weekend was peaceful however come Monday morning the restaurant was invaded by local suits talking on their phones and having breakfast meetings which spoiled the ambience somewhat.

Our room had been modernised and was serviceable without being fabulous although very comfortable.

The Concierge was very obliging and the reception and restaurant staff were friendly and professional.

This place is expensive. We were in a standard room which was over £400 for a night. Admittedly, it was a large room by London standards, and an interesting layout and shape, as a result of the fact that the hotel is carved out a of row of 10 Georgian town houses. We certainly enjoyed our stay, and the service was excellent, but I'm not sure it was really worth over £400.

Dear Guest, I am glad to note you enjoyed your stay at Brown's and found the rooms to be comfortable and interesting. You are right in observing that the hotel was carved out of 11 Georgian town houses and is the oldest hotel in London and hence no two rooms are the same. Please contact me when you plan your next visit to London in order that I can look after your reservation personally.

Best regards

Stuart Johnson

We spent a couple of nights at the Browns on a trip to and from Venice through London. The staff is very warm and accommodating and the rooms are very comfortable and spacious. Loved the beds and eiderdowns! A very nice touch was to leave a bottle of both still and sparkling water by the bedsides each evening as well as the fresh fruit in the room. We also enjoyed the St. George bar and the bartender was a great mixologist. Would definitely stay there again when in London.

Room Tip: We particularly like room 108 which faced an interior courtyard. It was quiet and the bathroom was...

I stayed her with my family for four nights, room was a much more generous size than London usual, staff were great and remembered us and our preferences leading to a good experience, cost was competitive.
