Reviewed 1 April 2011

Stayed at The Levin for 4 nights and eventhough we are seasoned travellers with multiple visits to London behind us, this hotel really amazed us. The location is superb, on a quiet street, right next to Harrods. The hotel itself feels like a home away from home, with very cool/classical/elegant/charming decor. Everything was extremely clean and well-kept, and the service is truly amazing. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. This is the only place we are staying when visiting London in the future, and we warmly recommend The Levin to anyone who wants the best for their London experience.

If you are trying to get closer to Harrods... you si;ply can't! So the perfect location for shopping and strolling in my favourite area of London - Knitsbrigde & Chelsea!
The service is brilliant, nothing is too much for the staff at The Levin, and if they can't help you then the sister hotel a few steps away CAN!
My only dark point was that I was sharing a junior suite with my Dad and resorted to sleep on the sofa bed... NOT confortable at all, really for a hotel that calibre, a better option should be looked into. My Dad however raved about the beds!!!!

We stayd at the Levin from 25 through 27 feb/2011 and had a fantastic time. They upgraded us to a delux room which was nice but the exec double woule hav done just fime, (we had a peak at one). Th beds are a dream and the bathrooms fresh and modern. Locationwise you are at the best for both shopping and dining !! Recomendable - we will be back.

On arrival at 7.30am after a long flight we were warmly greeted and fortunately our room was available which was a huge bonus. Our suite was extremely comfortabale, quiet and contained a small sitting area and contempory furnishings and a very good modern bathroom.We found the position of the hotel was most convenient situated with Harrods nearby and Knightsbridge Underground close by. There was a choice of many Restaurants, Cafes etc and shopping in general was excellent as it was centrally situated in Knightsbridge. There is a lovely Cafe/restaurant in the basement where breakfast, lunch and dinner were available. The sister hotel next door offered Michelin starred restaurant and bar facilities for Levin guests. We found the staff most obliging, very attentive to your every need and made us feel most welcome.

My husband and I used to live in Knightsbridge until we moved out of London. We regularly need to be in London overnight and we almost always stay at the Levin. We like the hotel so much that it feels very much like a home from home. The friendly staff, the beautifully decorated rooms, the location and Le Metro make it an excellent place to stay. We generally prefer staying there to some of London’s much more expensive hotels.

The only negatives I can think of is the old fashioned lift (although it does have charm) and the light coming on automatically in the corridor between the bedroom and bathroom when you use the loo in the night.

If you are in any doubt then we would recommend staying there (as long as we can get a room though!). It is a charming hotel.

Very well situated, litterally 50m away from Harrods and Chelsea, this "small luxury hotel" as they call themself instantly became our favourite hotel in London. If you're looking for the sweet spot to spend the week-end or a all week in London look no further... This place has all the advantages of a 5 star hotel without its burden (stiff personel, too many of them and too expensive). A very subtle and competent staf (the concierge found us 2 tickets for the "Cirque du soleil" on a saturday for the very same evening) - the only concern we had was hearing our neighbours a little too much... our 3 days in London were really a success also thanks to the hotel...
