Stayed for my boyfriends 40th birthday. Everything about this property surpassed our expectations. Such a warm greeting from the doorman and an equally fond au revoir. Relaxed atmosphere class & elegance combined with everything you need for a contemporary feel without losing the tradition.that emanates from this 19th century building Warm welcome and constant genuine smiles from all the staff . Nice touch of being shown around the property on check in with a brief insight into the history of the building. Magnificent Kipling suite - such high ceilings- where do you find that in a central London hotel Divine chocolate cake & champagne for our special celebration. Beautifully renovated bathroom with all the trimmings expected in a luxury hotel. Only minor complaint the hot water in the shower was Luke warm but the rain shower itself was extremely powerful. Bed & bedding of the finest quality you will never want to get out of it. Ideal position. 1 minute walk for dinner at the Wolseley and then on to the theatre 5 mins away. next day shopping on New Bond street. Being in the travel industry myself I will not hesitate to recommend this 5star london gem to any of my discerning clients. Cant wait to return

My wife and I have been regular visitors to the Donovan bar and Hix restaurant over the years - our London favourite - but had never stayed in the hotel until now. We were celebrating my wife's 50th birthday, from start to finish the service and attention to detail from all of the staff was simply outstanding, my wife was overwhelmed. Exceeded our expectations in every respect. Wonderful, we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in London from now on.

Room Tip: 5th floor deluxe - "Mary Poppins" view over the rooftops (on the Albemarle street side).

Located in central london in the heart of the City. This is a uique hotel experience.. My favorite is the Lord Byron room. If you ever need to relax and be pampered for a fortnight or twom then Browns is indeed the place for you. Male sure to have high tea in the lobby. Its a hoot.

Room Tip: REserve an upgraded room, dont try to save money At Browns.

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.
