“Very Nice Boutique Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2013

My husband and I stayed here for the start of our honeymoon (2 weeks throughout Great Britain). We found it to be a nice hotel overall. The room was small, but nicely appointed and clean. The included breakfast was definitely modest with no hot meals, but what we had was good. The staff were very nice and helpful- they remembered what we had done every day and always asked us how our activities were. The location was great (right next to Harrod's, Hyde Park, and the Underground).

Overall we did not find the hotel to be exceptional, but it was a very nice, comfortable place to stay in London with very good staff.

If you like a small hotel with warm and personal service, Egyptian cotton sheets,a wonderful small restaurant with room service, in a central area of Knightsbridge, look no further. The Levin is literally a stone's throw from Harrod's on a quiet street and a 3 minute walk to the Tube (Knightsbridge) on the Picadilly line (which is a direct shot to Picadilly, Covent Garden, et.al). Their American plan is a great value for the area with transfers to/from Heathrow and a full breakfast each morning. I would do without other things to stay here.

Room Tip: Less expensive rooms have no view, but are perfectly fine.

This is a charming small hotel, with a personal touch. I stayed for three nights in early May 2013 in a standard room. The bedroom, while not large, was adequate by London standards. The bedroom decor was modern and relatively chic, and the bathroom also looked fresh. Service was cheerful and attentive, and is in keeping with the character of the hotel. The location has much to recommend it: the hotel being in a quiet street very close to Harrods, and a few minutes from a stop on the Piccadilly line. If one wants a relaxing and comfortable experience in the Knightsbridge / South Kensington area, this boutique hotel would be hard to beat.

We had Room 42 (which is pictured in the photos) and loved the location and loved how quiet it was. The bed was cozy and the room was immaculate, very nice hotel and the restaurant in the basement had some very great cuisine. We loved it and would gladly return!

We stayed at the Levin for three nights. The experience was excellent. The room was large by European standards and was spotlessly clean. The hotel staff were friendly and very helpful in terms of directions and recommendations for restaurants. We had booked a three night package which included transportation to and from the airport. Also included breakfast and a dinner in the affiliated restaurant. Another bonus is the location, close to Harrods and an Underground station. Yet the hotel was very quiet. Will stay again at next opportunity.

I stayed at the Levin for three nights. Very warm welcome, nice room with all amenities you needed, good breakfast. I had one issue though: the noise from the street. I raised it with the manager (also that I am rather sensitive about this) and was told it would be quiet after 8 pm - no chance of that. It was well after midnight until things calmed down. It might be better on upper floors?!? If I go back, I would only do so when one of the few rooms to the back is available.

Room Tip: upper floor and to the back

The Levin is a very nice hotel, with friendly staff and very good amenities. It is one block from Harrod's, which was quite convenient for the shoppers in our group. The water pressure in the showers at the hotel (the measure by which I judge all hotels!) was okay only - not as strong as I would have liked, but the bathroom was large and well-appointed. In fact, the room (a twin bed deluxe) was quite large by London standards, which was very nice for my 3-night stay. I can definitely recommend The Levin.

I am very disappointed to hear about the water pressure was not what you expected
We investigated the problem and we made some adjustments on our pressure system and it looks like the water pressure is slightly better so thank you for reporting the problem
I do apologise once again and I do hope I have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon.
