Spacious rooms, modern touches, fabulous location!

Our family stayed here for an entire week this March. The first thing we noticed when we entered was a very lovely aroma. The hotel is crisp and clean and the staff is impeccable - kind, helpful and friendly. Our favorite thing was the location. We like to walk as much as possible and this hotel is walking distance to St. James Park, Buckingham palace, etc, etc... and 1/2 mile to Victoria Station if you want to get around the city in the Tube to see sites that are further away. It is tucked off the busy street in a beautiful neighborhood (near Belgrave Square) where there is a grocery store nearby and fine shopping. The only negative, (this is not the hotels fault) during our stay was a huge construction site directly across the street. Had we known to request a “garden side room“ during our stay, we would have had no issue with the construction. As it stands, construction sounds began late in the morning and did not wake us up but one day. The service elevator, which was also directly behind our room was more of an interruption to our sleep than the construction. But next time we will request a garden side room! We will stay at this hotel again without hesitation. For the business traveler, the rooms are well equipped with desks, efficient charging options, and a fabulous automated lighting and service system. And the beds are amazing! As for the staff we cannot say enough. From housecleaning to reception to all the people who work in the restaurants, everyone had a smile and was at your service for any request. We think this is a very special hotel and a fabulous find for our future travels. A special thank you to Gokhan for your warm hospitality.

Very Unique and Delicious Afternoon Tea!
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I booked the afternoon tea for my birthday and spent an amazing afternoon here! :)

The Afternoon Tea at the COMO was delicious and very unique to other Afternoon Teas I've had. There is a mixture of modern savory and desserts, which is the perfect balance and the food is such high quality and so yummy! Thank you chef!

My reservation was made by Jatin who was absolutely exceptional!!!!

During the tea our host was Joao who went above and beyond, who ensured myself and my friends were taken care off and never let our pressco glasses go empty!! :) :)

The restaurant and food is very sleek and modern but I have to say the wonderful staff really made it a lovely place to spend my birthday afternoon!

Thank you once again Jatin, Joao and Chef!!!

Long weekend in London
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We were greeted upon arrival by our favorite conciege, Stefano and went to our room for a rest. Then we had a lovely breakfast in the hotel restaurant. The egg white ometlet is my husbamd's favorite while I prefer a cappucino and the pastry basket !
Had cocktails in the hotel bar before heading out to dinner with friends.
We were hoping to have Sunday lunch at the 3 Michelin starred Waterside Inn at Bray and Stefano pulled a few strings and got us a 12:30 reservation at a beautifully situated table. Bliss ! Can't wait to return to our favorite hotel in London.

A Gem of A Find!

Excellent location, staff and overall fabulous! Love this place. We will return! The concierge's were so knowledgable and helpful - Stephano secured reservations at the hard to get spots I needed to bring clients of my husbands to as we were there for work and to see old friends. Stephano even had the idea even send my luggage in a cab to pick me up with a staff member to make sure I got to the airport on time from my last lunch in a neighborhood favorite spot they recommended!! They drew maps and directed me in person to all the gorgeous neighborhood spots! Marius and Piotr printed post documents and had them sent to my room and were always there with a smile to laser my million questions - very professional staff who like their jobs and it shows! Very spacious room and super commutable bed and luxurious bathroom. room, bar, restaurant - everything. Can walk everywhere. We came for Biennialle and we have art & design business and our home is great but I want to live in this hotel! Perfect bathrooms, bedding all exquisite taste! The rooftop fab too! I have stayed around the world and this is standout on service and style! Thanks - See you soon I hope!
