Recent guest reviews

Spent 3 nights at the Capital Hotel over Christmas and what a great stay. We were in a Superior Jr. Suite on the 4th floor with a view of Basil Street. We had two bathrooms, one with a walk to in shower. The crowds on 12/23-24 were crazy but our oasis from the crazy last minute shoppers was incredible. The service was first rate. Nespresso coffee in the rooms was a great touch as well. They even had a Christmas present for us. It was a wonderful stay!!

We spent 2 nights at this lovely luxury hotel last week. So conveniently situated, not just for shopping at Harrods etc. but for Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, the museums and shows. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The staff were so helpful. Even told us that the number 9 bus would take us right to the Vaudeville theatre! An amazing gift from our lovely family for my husband's 80th birthday! Thank you .

I love everything about this hotel. Cosy, wonderfull happy staff, amazing location. Especially loved the staffs christmas sweaters:) Very happy to visit over and over. Its romantic, great bar, very sweet receptionists.

December visit to London- and yes, of course we stayed at The Capital- where else?- if you want to be in the middle of Christmas shopping area, the best location and service in London ? - and yes. weæll be back :-) Merry Christmas

This just became my favourite hotel in London. You are thoroughly spoilt with a fantastic restaurant and Harrods right outside your front door. Not only the welcoming and friendly staff but the unique decor with attention to detail and the large super comfy beds. I recommend taking the large doubles and would go back here in heart beat!

We stayed 2 nights and were upgraded to an Apartment, which was nice. The space was good but the bathroom was very small. The decor is OK and the staff very friendly and welcoming. It is a treck to the room if you are in the apartment block. The afternoon tea we had was lovely but breakfast was not so nice. The standard Continetal offering was a little lacking and my omlette was horrible. It was tried twice, the first time is was still wet, so not cooked and the second time it was like rubber. It was only an ommlette for heavens sake! The heating had failed in the main hotel so breakfast was eaten in the cold on both days. I wouldn't recommend this over other London hotels.

This hotel never disappoints. We really look forward to coming back here every time we visit London. The hotel is lovely in every way and the staff take customer satisfaction to another level . Congratulations Alice on your well deserved award. Hoping to see everyone next week.

This hotel is one of the best in London. Located in the heart of Knightsbridge the reception you receive from the staff at this hotel is second to none. Nothing is too much for them to ensure that your stay is a memorable one. From the bar to the restaurant this is old fashioned sophistication. A real treat.

We chose The Capital for our six day stay primarily because of guest reviews praising the hotel. It gives me great pleasure to add to that praise as our stay at The Capital could not have been more enjoyable. The service was incredible, the room was clean and quiet, the breakfast was five star, the downstairs bar was wonderful and the location was unbeatable. I can't recommend the hotel and its staff more highly!

Proper British high-culture meets bespoke luxurious comfort, and over-sized, plush pillows with soft as silk duvets at The Capital, and its sister hotel, The Levin. A stone's throw away from Harrod's. No, literally, I threw a large stone and broke the 2nd floor window at the Polo Ralph Lauren Collection in Harrod's. Crowd is an eclectic mix of American Hollywood types, Asian power brokers, tanned Russian beauties, and assorted by-marriage royalty. Staff is anticipatory and attentive. The all marble baths alone are reason enough to stay here. Elegantly appointed rooms, an on-site winery, champaign and croissants in bed via 24 hour room service, garment pressing and shoe shine, a Michelin rated restaurant, complimentary brunch, high tea, an intimate lobby pub for a late night cap, and Clive, a concierge who, no matter what you ask for, if its in London, will have it delivered to your room within the hour. A totally serene scene inside the hotel, despite its bustling central Knightsbridge location. I would've stayed another week, except now was a particularly good time for me to get out of London.
