I recently celebrated my 40th Birthday at Belgraves and I couldn't have hoped to find a better venue or service in central London. The Snug area of the bar was allocated to us all evening, and the drinks and canapes flowed! There were 42 people in attendance and everyone commented on the quality of the food and the charming nature of the people looking after us. Throughout the whole event, including the planning, I was very well taken care of, and thank you to everyone for making it a very special event.
A special thank you to Marianna who is the perfect party planner. I'm now trying to think of another cause for celebration so that I can come back!

I am giving the Belgraves a 5 star rating, The hotel is fantastic... from the door staff (dressed casual) to the check-in, everything is perfect, You are treated like a friend, not a customer. In fact, this is what makes the hotel so special. In London i have never met so hospitable staff,,,well done to all. The room was a great size for London and quite funky (jellied sweets in the mini-bar...mmmm). However, the air conditioning was an issue. It was the hottest day of the year and the air-con was not working - if you turned it on it was set at 30 degrees. my room was like a sauna. I did mention this to reception on day 1 and they said there was major works going on and would be sorted that night...unfortunately not! Despite this, i would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and it is now my choice next time I am in London. Great bar also.

I booked this hotel at the last minute for a weekend in the capital. The Belgraves is one of the coolest hotels I have every stayed in, and I couldn't recommend it enough to anyone who wants relaxed luxury in one of the most beautiful areas of London.
The service, ranging from' the most stylish Doorman you will ever see' to the Bar Hostess, from the Breakfast Waitress to the Receptionists local knowledge was exceptional.
It is a rarity to be acknowledged so openly by all members of staff, which speaks volumes for the hotels' ethos of excellent customer service.
The rooms were spotless and extremely comfortable with everything you would expect in luxury hotel.
You need to put The Belgraves on your "must go to" list...........

The Belgraves is a sleek, trendy and unique hotel in the posh Knightsbridge neighborhood in London. It ticks all the boxes: great food, amazing design, perfect location and friendly service...if you are not on a budget, obviously!
The rooms are very comfortable despite being quite small, so I would recommend to opt for a king premium or a studio suite.
One of the great assets of this property is its bar located on the mezzanine floor, which is the perfect place to work, meet, chill, eat and sip a drink, not to mention its beautiful, yet friendly and professional, waitresses.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are and studio suite are preferred

The best value-for-money hotel in town, in my view.
This hotel is highly recommended for its cozy, modern, clean rooms, the high-level of services offered by the extremely friendly staff and of course its hidden gem: the terrace!
I've stayed there in my last 4 business trips to London and it almost felt like being at home!
Looking forward to my next stay there
Highly recommended even for business travelers!

We had a amazing time, When we arrived we were upgraded to a better room which was great, had a great view from the balcony of the London eye and Big Ben!
We then asked if we could have the full English breakfast instead of continental and pay the difference, but to our surprise we didn't have to pay for the difference and this was included! Absolutely great environment/ atmosphere and the room décor was really nice. It was a surprise for my partner and he loved it! Thank you for being so kind and courteous!
