How to Get There
Arriving at the front door was a treat with the Flowers at door and in Lobby. Checking in was easy and made us feel expected. She then walked us to our room and showed us the amenities. One felt as though an anticipated family member. All of the appointments were of high quality and staff was most welcoming. Room was comfortable although not large. Whenever we had a question - they had the answer. Belgravia is a quiet and elegant neighborhood. Breakfast was very nice; staff was very attentive. On my husband’s birthday our server brought a bottle of champagne for us all. We were a party of 5 and we stayed 5 days.
Every day was elegant, spotless and staff was attentive. Look forward to staying again.
We love COMO and the Halkin is a lovely, quintessentially perfect representation of everything great about this family of hotels. Service is friendly and warm and never intrusive. Decor is understated but thoughtful. Food is great and balanced and as healthy as you’d like. Gym is small but well equipped. Hyde park just around the corner for lovely morning runs. There is construction right across, so light sleepers might be a bit weary. We were in town for our best friend’s civil ceremony and our own anniversary and couldn’t have picked a more relaxing and wonderful place to be based. It’s tiny (40rooms?) and, no surprise, everyone knows you by name. Thank you, Halkin team, for a perfect weekend. If forced to choose, the only maddening thing to mention is the shower curtain—maybe in a different room it’s irrelevant, but it was on Velcro and every time you move it, it falls down.
Afternoon tea was divine. The Basque menu was a welcome change to sandwiches and scones. An abundance of tea was continually served in record time; the best mint tea I’ve had in a long time. However, above all, the service was most excellent. Penny was delightful, knowledgeable and kind. She knew instinctively when to help and when to provide space. Penny made the day extra special with her lovely and kind nature.
