“Lovely Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2006

This is a great hotel on a quiet side street two blocks from Harrods. I stayed in a single room, which while small, was really nice and comfortable. The Miller Harris toiletries were great. The turndown service was lovely, with nice linen sprays and aromatic oils.

I have also stayed at their sister hotel Number Sixteen, which I liked but had such thin walls as to be absurd (I could hear my neighbors whispering). This was a much more pleasant experience and I can't wait to stay here again.

I had the pleasure of staying 6 nights at the Knightsbridge while on business in London. The Beaufort Gardens location is peaceful yet just a half block from the bustling shops and restaurants of Brompton Road. The Piccadilly Line was easily accessible via the Knightsbridge Tube Station by Harrod's.

Although small by U.S. standards, my room was comfortable and the bathroom was large with a wonderful bathtub. The hotel staff was friendly and solicitous. Upon arriving early for check-in, I was served a lovely tea in the drawing room while they prepared my room. A nice touch and welcome after the long flight.

I will look forward to staying at the Knightsbridge again for business travel but must confess it would be too expensive for a family trip.

My wife and I stayed at the Knightsbridge Hotel earlier this month. Our room was beautifully decorated, quiet and had a nice view of Beaufort Gardens. The location is excellent. While expensive, it was reasonable by London standards. We would definitely stay there again.

  • Disliked — No table in the room for breakfast.

This hotel's location on a quiet tree lined street is one of it's best assets. The rooms are smartly decorated, although small, and the staff are quite attentive. However, some of the extras that we were charged for were a bit over the top. Five Pounds for a bucket of ice in our room? It's small details like this that will prevent us from recommending the Knightsbridge to friends.

The most amazing part of staying at this hotel is how you can step off busy Brompton Road and find yourself in a quiet, sedate street that seems miles away from the traffic and commerce. The owners continue to find young, friendly staff and the hotel standards are as exceptional today as they were when we were among the first guests a few years ago.

My wife and I spent a night at the Knightsbridge last week on our stop through London to meet friends. We had spent nine nights at Firmdale’s Soho Hotel last year and loved it. Due to our limited time in London this year, we decided one located closer to where we needed to be made more sense.

Even though the Knightsbridge is in a row of converted townhouses, it still maintained the gently edgy feel we liked so much at the Soho. It would placate the “chintz crowd” better than the Soho might, but still in a quiet, subtle way. As we expected, we arrived from the airport ahead of the posted check in time and were politely told our room was indeed not yet ready. When we offered to leave our bags and return later, the staff made a call to housekeeping to put us first on their list and had tea, coffee and biscuits arranged for us in the lounge (these refreshments never appeared on our bill). The room was much like those at the Soho, bright, clean and large by London standards. We did miss the full wall of glass the Soho offers, but the same high quality of the room was there. Check out was just as smooth with a taxi arranged at check out and we found it out front, our luggage loaded precisely on time. We are looking forward to trying out the next Firmdale opening in the fall on our next visit.

I just returned from a couple of days at the Knightsbridge. We stayed there on the recommendation of a friend. As always staying at a new hotel, I was nervous about what to expect. The hotel was truly fantastic. I have been lucky enough to stay at some amazing hotels around the world, including many boutique hotels, and this ones holds it own against any of them. We checked in and were put in a room in the lower level. It was a beautiful, huge room but I was concerned about the noise. I asked to change and the staff could not have been more helpful. They moved us to a room on the fifth floor overlooking the street that was incredibly light filled and beautiful. It was slightly smaller but still a large size for a city hotel. The appointments were very well done with a large comfortable bed and sitting area.

The public rooms are simply beautiful. Modern and well done yet very inviting. The honesty bar is a nice addition and it was great to grab a drink and hang out in the salon. Friends were staying across the street at the Parkes hotel and spent most of their time with us in the salon talking and having a great time. It is like staying with a very fashionable, incredibly gracious friend who is hosting you in their house.

Finally, the staff. They are young, energetic and could not have been nicer or more helpful. They helped us out on a number of things ranging from some business issues to recommending places to eat.

I strongly recommend this hotel and will staying at this or another Firmdale hotel on my next trip to London.
