Reviewed 13 May 2014

Just a wonderful top notch hotel all around ... The best part was the staff and how accommodating they were. Mathia and Anita were very warm and welcoming and everyone made me feel right at home. The rooms are beautiful and well appointed. The bar scene was very cool with a nice mix of locals and tourists!

Room Tip: Book one with a TUB!!

Great location, really nice friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast, great design, everything spotlessly clean and an excellent night's sleep as the rooms are so quiet. Highly recommend the Belgraves and would like to return soon!

Really loved this hotel in a beautiful neighborhood...easy to get cabs fro hotel and easy walk to Sloane Square for shopping and the tube to get anywhere. This is a special hotel with welcoming staff and a great vibe. Room Service was excellent, and the hotel gave us a birthday cake for my daughter who was celebrating her 18th... Rooms are very well appointed, and the bed was extremely comfortable. No room in London is going to be vast unless you pay for a suite, but I found the room a good size, the couch nook was a nice touch. I love the location and the ability to walk through gorgeous squares and just enjoy the neighborhood. Super staff and super comfortable

Room Tip: Rooms 403 and 503 face a quiet street and are very comfortable

We stayed at Belgraves this weekend to celebrate our anniversary. From start to finish it was a brilliant experience. The staff are some of the most helpful and attentive I have experienced, they could not do enough for us during our stay. At check in, during conversation, the receptionist asked us the reason for our stay, we mentioned our anniversary, and when we came back from our day of shopping we had champagne on ice, fruit, and a note from the staff wishing us congratulations. Lovely touch. The shower was lovely, very modern design. Overall, we had a really great time!

What I liked:

The location: 10 minutes walk to 3 tube stations. Knightsbridge, with its restaurants, shops etc is your oyster.

The check in: I arrived at 10 am and was given a room straight away. Others seemed to have a similar experience and my own room was serviced early while I was at breakfast. So there seems to be a better than average chance of getting an early room. Checking in and out were friendly and efficient.

The bar: Very inclusive warm vibe and top notch cocktails. It is a small bar. Though there are seating areas, I kept to the bar and had some very pleasant chats with friendly and interesting people. The bartender made great martinis of various kinds. The Vesper was of course shaken. The classic gin martini was of course stirred...(Yes, I do have childish James Bond dreams). While the bar staff were very good, they seemed a bit short-staffed on the Friday.

The feel: London generally seems to be dressing down. On the tube I saw a lot of people in suits without ties, more jeans everywhere. While I am an (apparently old-fashioned) admirer of the sharp London look, New York's dress down influence seems to be on the rise and Belgraves is part of that. The pleasant informality reminded me of The Athenaeum on Piccadilly, and I think that it is also a popular place for American visitors. While the Athenaeum has a better choice of whiskies, Belgraves has, for now at least, a better and more popular bar.

The room: I was given a room with twin beds and a nice alcove sofa by the window with a view over the little park. Because there were twin beds and only me, there was more space than I would normally expect. So I really liked my room on the sixth floor, especially for the price. Decor was warm with some nice stylish touches.

What could be better:

Service: While staff were helpful and attentive when there, they did seem to disappear. I was frequently in the situation where I was looking for someone to help me for food or drink and there was nobody there. My impression is that they need more staff in the bar and the restaurant. At breakfast, my juice arrived long after my English breakfast, when I would of course have preferred the reverse order (or at least to have been asked).

Restaurant: The kind of food on offer (seafood, salads, Quinoa, juices) was what made me want to stay at the hotel. The menus are fine, but some of the food could be seasoned a little better. But the sadest thing about the restaurant was the lack of atmosphere: it was rather quiet/deserted in the evening! The layout and lighting could do with a change. The food concept is good but everthing else needs a bit of tweeking.

Small things:
The carpet in my room had a faint stain, as did the sofa. The shower door was not properly mounted to keep in most of the water.

Overall
This is not Knightsbridge luxury, but then it's not Knightsbridge prices either. I felt I got good value for money and, mostly due to the pleasant vibe, came away feeling pleased.

Room Tip: 606: twin beds, alcove sofa with view.
