We stayed 4 nights and can really recommend this friendly and nice little hotel. It has just 12 rooms so you feel quite special as a guest. If you prefer smaller hotels where you get to know the staff this is the place. Read Sharon T's review, she has a good description of the hotel and it's facilities. I agree on everything except that our large bathroom was in good shape and our mattresses didn't sag.

The best about the hotel was the staff, the clean silent room and the nice and calm lobby (loved the coffee!)

There was no view from the window (execpt over the backyard) as our room was situated at the back but you can't get it all. The breakfast buffet is smaller than on a bigger hotel but it is high quality and I got the feeling that if you miss something just tell the staff and they will try to get it for you.

My daughter and I spent 5 nights at The Levin and we will definitely come back. The room was beautifully decorated and comfortable; the staff was super helpful, professional, friendly and efficient; breakfast was just perfect and the location is a plus. Beautiful little hotel! We recommend!

1st visit to london. Spring break with the family. Loved this hotel. Best staff ever. Always going above and beyond in every way. Very small boutique hotel perfectly situated by harrods and shopping. Breakfast is help yourself and very good and simple. Rooms extremely comfortable and clean. Beds very comfortable. Will stay here again.

Pros
Location for travel - only a block from the Knightsbridge station on the Piccadilly line. Always had to transfer to go to tourist spots, but close to Buckingham, Hyde Park, Kensington, and Kings Cross.
Location for shopping - Harrods, shops, all within a block
Radiant heating in bathroom floors was nice for cold weather. Also nice to have the option of a bathtub, a rarity in European city hotels.
Breakfast in mornings includes many options from restaurant next door like cheese, charcuterie, bread, yogurt, freshly squeezed juice, milk, eggs to cook as preferred, scrambled eggs, bacon, oatmeal, coffee, tea, spreads.
Helpful and polite front desk people available 24/7. They prepared the fridge and some early breakfast food for us at 6:30 am (an hour before breakfast typically begins) when we indicated that we had an early morning flight.
Ample overhead halogen lighting in rooms. My husband commented that this was the best hotel room lighting he'd ever experienced in terms of brightness. Nice to have the lights on a dimmer as well.
Classic book collection and nespresso machine available in each room.
Entrance to our room had a tiny foyer and a second door. It was helpful for blocking hallway noise, which we never heard, and for leaving our shoes.
Robes and slippers provided.

To note about the hotel
4 rooms over 3 floors, seems like converted apartment building.
The lift is a old style one with a closing gate. It was novel, but slightly annoying the last day when the previous user of the lift forgot to close the gate behind them, causing the lift not to come up to our floor until my husband walked down 4 flights of stairs to close it and take it up so that we could ferry our luggage downstairs.
Eating breakfast at the sister hotel was an extra 10 GBP charge. Other reviews had mentioned that it was included but that didn't seem to be the case for our visit.
We booked this through the Chase travel portal and weren't sure if breakfast would be included, but it was.
The walls are a bit thin and we could hear the room next door's TV the first evening. However, the hotel was only 1/2 full when we were there, so we had no neighbors after that first night.

Cons
Bathroom - parts of the hotel were not quite as well-kept, such as the bathroom.
The wallpaper was peeling in our unit and the towel warmer did not work. The bathroom was quite small and narrow, and the half-shower glass wall meant that water spilled out onto the floor quite easily. There was also no hair dryer there, though we did not ask for one and it's possible they would have had one.
Bed - Our linens were nice, but the mattress did sag slightly in the center.

Absolutely loved The Levin. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was great (small bathroom, but it worked fine) and the Knightsbridge location is the best.

We stayed on the 4th floor in a double room. The bed was large and very comfortable. There was plenty of room for our luggage (we had one suitcase and one large backpack, plus a couple small bags). The room was decorated nicely and was very cosy.

The breakfast (included in our cost) was very good. We were going to try the restaurant next door, which is affiliated with the Levin, but we loved our hotel's breakfast area (which is also the lobby) and the food and choices were good.

The Knightsbridge location was excellent. The hotel is around the corner from Harrod's, but the street is very quiet and pleasant. You are a two-minute walk to the tube and bus stop, as well as great shopping.

Highly recommend this lovely hotel!
