My girlfriend and I spent the weekend in London attending a Muse concert at Wembley Stadium and shopping. We didn't want to stay at a chain Hotel so did some research and came up with the Levin. We weren't disappointed...our room was large and comfortable, spotlessly clean and decorated in an elegant and contemporary style. The minibar was well stocked in a fridge and there is a further 'honesty' cocktail bar in the entrance lobby. The location of the Hotel is located next to Harrod's and is a short walk from Knightsbridge tube station. Despite it's central location our stay was very quiet.

We had dinner on the Friday night in Le Metro Bar & Brasserie next door which is part of the Hotel. This provided a cosy setting with tasty, freshly prepared food. We had breakfast on both Saturday and Sunday morning. My girlfriend had the included continental breakfast and I paid extra for a full English breakfast which was excellent. There were no tea and coffee making facilites but we ordered these in the morning with room service.

The staff were polite and efficient and the whole stay was faultless and we would definitely return.

First visit to London. We were not disappointed. The Levin is PERFECTLY located....Harrods outside your door as well as the picadilly tube line, knightsbridge station. 14 rooms I believe. If you like small boutique hotels this is for you. From the initial greeting to our breakfast service, everything was top notch. Every request was instantly met. Thanks to Saby, AVA, Victoria and Merrell for making our first visit to the UK a welcomed one! We will definitely return!

The Levin's location is unbeatable. Can take the tube, Piccadilly line, right to it from Heathrow airport. The best champagne mini bar in any hotel!
Wonderfull, small hotel...I return there every visit to London, it feels like home. Luxurious bedding, great staff, a nice restaurant with great food, right in the centre of London, right by Harrods, close to museums etc... Many other great restaurants in the area as well some of the best shopping.

Looking for an overnight stay in the Knightsbridge / Kensington area for my trip to the tennis at Queens Club on 8th June with my mum, I chose The Levin due to its fairly reasonable rate, prime location, boutique feel, trendy design, and excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. We were definitely not disappointed! When we checked in at around 9pm after an amazing but tiring day, we were warmly greeted and immediately shown to our room, an upgrade to a Deluxe room for no extra charge. The design of the hotel is gorgeous, with pinks, turquoise etc. matched with stylish furniture and accessories. Our room was immaculately clean, very large with a sitting area, king size (very comfy) bed, flat screen TV and sound system, Penguin library and champagne bar. So stylish. The bathroom didn't open directly onto the bedroom, but both onto a small corrdor (a plus), and was very nice, with grey marble. The gentleman who showed us around the room was extremely helpful, and we settled down to an excellent night's sleep. The next morning, we met Ava, who was lovely and extremely helpful as to directions, tips etc. My bacon sandwich was amazing, and my mum enjoyed the inclusive continental breakfast. After check-out, we were able to leave our luggage for collection later, and were given all the directions and advice we needed. Our only very minor complaint would be the lack of a kettle and tea making facilities in the room. We like our tea!

Overall, top marks for location, design, cleanliness, boutique feel, and staff. We will definitely be back!

I stayed at this hotel for one night on a business trip to Knightsbridge and I thoroughly enjoyed the service and comfort of this boutique hotel. While the property only has 12 rooms, the service was great throughout the night as I arrived quite jet-lagged and had some late-night requests.

The check-in procedures were very fast and I was shown every little detail in my room, including the great Penguin book collection.

This is a great hotel to stay at for shopping, business or a romantic weekend in the City, as Hyde Park is just a few minutes away and the hotel offers a service of packing a pick-nick basket which you can take to the park.

The overall feel of the property is very cozy and I would recommend everyone to stay at this hotel over some of the larger and anonymous options in the vicinity such as the Sheraton Park Towers.

We have just spent a few nights at the Levin yet again and we remain as impressed as before. Great service and you do feel as if you are at home in our opinion. Then if you need the inernet or the Hotel type of lounge or bar or restaurant offering there is the terrific Capital Hotel owned by the same people right next door. And that is a serious additional benefit. We will keep going back.
