“Ideal location! Nice Rooms! Great service! Good food!”
Reviewed 26 July 2012

I loved everything about the Levin! Really nice place and staff. If I could improve anything, I would double-glaze windows and do something about thin walks as the road could get a little noisy and inconsiderate guests thought it was a good idea to turn tv volume on really high at 7am! If i were to seek perfection, i would provide provide toothpaste/mouthwash in bathrooms. Free wi-fi was a very nice touch! I would definitely go back!

Thank you so much for your feedback from your recent stay with us. I am delighted that you enjoyed the hotel and everything went well. Whilst most of the guest prefer to use their own brand of tooth paste and mouth wash we do provide both if the guest is requesting it. Also with our windows it is on our budget for next year to have all windows double glazed so the little noise we experience from street level is limited or none at all. We do hope to see you again on future visits to London and please let me know when you would like to come and I am happy to help with your reservation
Best regards

I have stayed in London a few times and always been somewhat disappointed with the accommodations. Typically we would have to sacrifice comfort and modernism for location due to prices, but then we found The Levin! Knightsbridge is one of our favorite areas, so this location was perfect. The amenities were exactly what we look for in a hotel. Boutique style, but still comfortable and modern. We loved the ambiance (decorations, elevator, etc.) We will definitely be staying here every time we are in London. To top it all off, access to the Underground was as easy as it gets.

We have been regular visitors to London for the last 20 years and think The Levin is by far the best hotel we have stayed in.
A small high quality hotel in a great location with staff that are the most hospitable we have come across.
We have booked again for a stay in 3 months time - that will be our 4th time in The Levin - and are looking forward to our usual warm welcome.
Highly recommended.

My family just returned from the UK where we found on Trip Advisor this lovely small hotel in London. The Levin is a wonderful boutique located steps from Harrods with great shopping and restaurants all around. It is down a very nice little street, so you feel like you are a part of the neighborhood And a very nice one it is. Knightsbridge is a very chic, wealthy area. Our teenager was in heaven.
There were three of us so we had the Jr. Suite. Beautifully decorated with a modern sensibility. Lots of space and a luxurious bath. But what stands out about The Levin is the staff. Beatrice was so nice, looking after our every need and was just so charming and nice. All the staff in the restaurant were fun and extra nice to us no matter what time of day or night we popped in. Everyone just went out of their way to ensure we had a great holiday and indeed we did. I would definitely stay at The Levin and can't wait to return.

Stayed here for four nights and took the underground direct from the Heathrow airport to the Knightsbridge station, which is literally 100 feet away, and right next to Harrods.

The service was excellent, they booked discounted tickets for the London Eye, Tower of London and War Horse, which has been sold out for two months. There was a free continental breakfast that we had delivered to the room every morning.

Rooms were very new, clean and spacious (for London).

Overall, a very nice experience. We would definitely stay there again.

I put a lot of thought into where we would stay during each leg of our big European family trip. Our last leg of the journey was a three day stay in London and we wanted it to be just right. I couldn't have chosen better than The Levin! One of the compelling features that drew me to The Levin was proximity to Harrod's-and they are not kidding when they say it's a scone's throw away-it's literally footsteps. The hotel is darling-with lovely rooms that feel fresh and modern, but simultaneously intimate and cozy. The hotel just feels good-and this is the best part--the staff. Upon arrival at Heathrow, the lovely Graham Plowright called to check on us as we had arranged for transport to the hotel. Upon arrival at The Levin, Graham and the lovely manager, Harold Duttine, came out into the street to greet our van. Even more impressive-they remembered that we were celebrating my mother's 89th birthday on this trip-arranging for a freshly baked cake for one of our afternoon teas at the hotel's charming restaurant-Le Metro. It's a terrific place to eat and breakfast is-yes, lovely. We had four rooms during our stay-occupying 1/3 of The Levin's 12 rooms! I really enjoyed the Deluxe rooms in particular. When we departed I felt like we were leaving friends-Harold, Graham, Ramona, Eniko, Beatrice, Rob and the list goes on. We'll be back!

We decided to stay at the Levin after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. The service was exceptional, as too was the room. What sets this place apart is the service though. I have travelled extensively and rarely have I found service this good. It is up there with some of the best resorts in Asia. We had a late flight out of London and it was not too much trouble for the hotel to make a spare room available for us to freshen up before our long flight back to Australia. The rooms are beautifully appointed and thoughtfully decorated. We would stay here again in a heart beat. Well done!
