How to Get There
I should have checked more accurate, first shock when we arrived and I saw the “Bar”, puh this is a Bar in a 3 Star village Hotel, but not in a 5 Star London Hotel, no style, nothing, o.k. staff here was nice. Then of course our 2 rooms couldn’t be at lest on the same floor, as only booked 7 months in advance, explanation: Booked through Hotelsearch page😂. We’re talking about a small hotel, around 35 rooms, they should know their bookings we’ll.
Could be worse, going to the rooms, no further disappointments, room in 5th. very nice while only possible with ac at night as under the roof.4th. floor room smaller but o.k.
After dinner we returned to the rooms and there was no room make up, which is a must for a 5 Star hotel!
Next morning breakfast, the restaurant is not bad even though not most stylish, too down cooled in summer for us.
Then very important order breakfast one after the other because if you order bread eggs fruits and so on together you will have to wait as the quite nice staff wants to bring everything at once, which is a shame because what you get is good quality.
The area around is great, Hyde Park access within 3 minutes and all the embassies nearby.
The day when we left we got a phone call at 12:15 that we should check out even though we had a late check out booked especially for 2 o’clock, as we weren’t even close there was no chance for them anyways but this is not what I want to experience in a five-star hotel sorry.
Our rooms were well planned and attractive with very comfortable beds. Most striking was that the service was beyond impeccable. I even left my passports in the safe. Someone from
The front desk rushed them to us at the train station! He seemed more concerned about us missing the train than even we were. Will definitely stay next time we’re in London!
A friend and I recently stayed at the COMO Halkin with our two daughters. We had a wonderful experience. The customer service is excellent, the rooms lovely and the food in the restaurant is great. The location is wonderful- right near Hyde Park and Buckingham palace and a tube stop. The customer service is so good that when we left our passport in the hotel safe someone from the hotel brought it to us and waited with us to see if we still made our train. The beds are extremely comfortable and the water pressure and temperature in the shower is amazing. :-)
We've stayed here many times now, and keep returning because:
* the rooms are a good size, clean and well laid out for the price
* friendly staff
* great breakfast
* walking distance from Knightsbridge and Picadilly
* quiet location
We hope to keep returning! Thanks again to everyone at the Halkin that helps to make our stays enjoyable :)
The staff are great, the service is top quality and the location is perfect for me. If you like shopping and going out for dinner etc the location is the best.
The club lounge is fantastic and well worth it.The gym, swimming pool etc are all fantastic
