the location is a plus, it is close to shoppings and hyde park... the breakfast in the roof garden is good…. rooms are on the small side but the service is great… no street parking around, and the only parking space was $48 for 24 hours… it's hard to find on the first time but once you learn your way, it is a piece of cake…

My friend chose this hotel for his wedding venue and it was great. Staff were excellent and service couldn't be faulted and having breakfast in bed was great.

It is a bit of a quirky place as the entrance is not obvious and the receptionist comes down in the lift to collect you from the street. I stayed in Room 4 and I see that other people have written less than positive reviews about this room. However, I thought it was pretty and cosy and it had obviously benefited from the wider hotel renovation program.

That said, as the room was so small it was great for one night but I wouldn't want to stay there for a longer break as it would have felt quite claustrophobic. Also, Room 4 is by the stairs and lift access so I didn't get the best night's sleep as the noise from the corridor came straight into the room.

Searcy's Roof Garden Rooms was a great and central place to stay in central London. It is close to Harrod's and with easy access to public transportation while the hotel is in a quiet street.

We had a very nice family suite, which with an extra bed was certainly suitable for 5 people. Breakfast was wonderful and was served in the room. The smoothies and fruitsalads were great. Price/Quality this is probably one of the best places to stay in London.

For restaurants in the neighbourhood, there is in Italian "sale e pepe" in the street of the hotel, which was a little noisy and not really ideal with children, though the food was ok but we thought the other Italian close to Harrods "Zia Teresa" was better and friendlier.

For something different in the neighbourhoud, try the Iraqi restaurant " Prince Garden" on Knightsbridge. The food was great and the people were very child friendly.

Trip advisor comes through again. This is a clean but quirky hotel with a great location. I say quirky because there is no lobby, or true hotel entrance. You arrive on a doorstep and press a buzzer. Someone from reception comes to meet you. It took me a few tries to get the elevator figured out but once I did, it was easy. The breakfast is really nice..and the coffee was great(and I am a coffee snob).
It is a 4-5 minute walk to the Knightsbridge Tube station. The stop is on the Picadilly stop which goes all the way out to Heathrow if you do not want to spend 80 pounds on a cab or 20 on the Heathrow express.
The people working at reception were quite friendly. Upon arrival, I was given tea and cookies..Nice touch.
Will stay here again!

We stayed in a room with a canopy bed overlooking Pavilion Road. Our king size bed was very comfortable and the furnishings were elegant. We were surprised at how quiet the hotel was considering that it is in the center of Knightsbridge, not far from Sloane Street and Harrods. The hotel does not have a restaurant and so breakfast was delivered on a tray every morning; the croissants were delicious. Weather permitting, you can eat breakfast on the roof terrace.

This small boutique hotel is immaculately presented, Molton Brown treats supplied, huge bathroom, quiet rooms, vast breakfast selection delievered to our room piping hot with sunday newspapers, excellent location, cozy roof top garden, value for money and bascially a brilliant find.
Highly recommend!!

I am a regular traveller to London on business but on my future leisure trips this will be where I reside, location fantastic, staff - so helpful (we were offered tea on arrival and my better half was sick on the last morning and we had no problem getting an extended checkout despite the fact that the hotel was operating at full capacity) rooms - small but for short stays not a problem. Breaksfast delivered to your room a very nice treat. Overall it is a different experience, may not be to everyones taste, but I loved it.
