How to Get There
I can’t say enough about how impressed I was with the hotel and staff. They truly care about their guests in every way. It’s rare when you can’t think of one negative experience. The hotel staff, the food and the room were all 5 stars. I wish I could name all the staff who were terrific but the list would be long. I especially remember Michela at the reception desk. She was remarkable in the way she addressed the customer experience.
Our three-night stay started beautifully and just kept getting better. Front Office Manager Gokhan Vardar and Head Concierge Stefano Trovo were totally on top of everything as well as being warm, humorous, and welcoming. The entire staff was helpful and efficient and they seemed comfortable in their roles. The decor is just a touch austere, but well appointed with quality amenities. Our room (third floor) faced Halkin Street, and even with the construction (the huge Peninsula Hotel) it was quiet. The bathtub is deep, the bath salts marvelous; turn-down service includes a plate of fresh fruit. Nice to be in walking distance to two very different commercial districts and the Victoria Palace Theatre. Our stay at Como The Halkin was wonderful! Wish we'd had time for a meal at the onsite restaurant, but the snacks and tea at the cafe off the lobby were top notch.
I went here for my 19th birthday and what a great it was! The waiters were very kind and accommodating! And the food... well if you want bursts of flavours and the biggest king prawns you’ve ever seen - here is the place to go! Each dish was carefully crafted! The cheesecake is a must try too! I thoroughly enjoyed my experience here and would highly recommend! Also as it was my birthday they did me a lovely happy birthday dessert platter too free of charge which I thought was a lovely touch!
