      The room was huge, great windows and the bathroom clean.

      the bed was very uncomfortable, they should buy new matresses to match the rest of the room.

      The breakfast was good real english breakfast

      the room was quite small and there was not tube but only shower

    • Family with children
      8.2

      It was a relaxed inner London hotel. A bit tired and in need of tasteful decoration, however staff very helpful and good natured. It is very well priced for it's location, which possibly would change if it were upgraded.

    • Group of friends
      9.0

      The elegant old-fashioned style makes the atmosphere very british. Belgravia is the fairest residential place of the world and every amusement location of London is very easily reachable from the hotel position. The hotel staff is kindly disposable and polyglot. The room where we stayed (The Berkeley) is splendid. Breakfast is rich.

    • Group of friends
      7.4

      The staff were extremely friendly and the location excellent.

      The building itself was very old and in need of upgrading. The hotel was difficult to find. Full breakfast was not available until 8pm which was late in our opinion.

    • Single
      10.0

      I liked the location and proximity to tube Sloane, Knightsbridge and locality for shopping. Very comfortable stroll to these spots and safe neighbourhood.

    • Single
      6.6

      Convenient location, very close to the Jumeirah Carlton where the conference was held.

      The bed was not very comfortable.

    • Older travelers
      5.0

      Tiny room, hand held shower which fell apart, horrible breakfast.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      Very spacious room with character.

      Limited breakfast with the cooked items in heated trays.

    • Single
      9.6

      The staff were really friendly and helpful, the breakfast was good and for me this hotel was really good value for money in a great location.

      There was nothing that I did not like :-)

    • Single
      9.2

      Excellent staff, excellent location, very comfortable room, very good breakfast, excellent value for money.

    • Single
      9.2

      Spatious room with all facilities. Great value for money, especially compared to other alternatives in London. Nice staff. The disadvantage is that Sloane Square is a little off, with rather few restaurants in the area.

    • Group of friends
      5.4

      Location

      Like hotels in London, expenciv and rooms and house not good

    • Single
      7.8

      The staff were very helpful and friendly. The location is a short walk from both Sloane and Knightsbridge stations. Nice residential area. Fresh fruit was available during breakfast and service was good.

      Could hear the phone ring at reception throughout the night. It was very hot (no air conditioning) and was too noisy outside to leave window open. The breakfast is exactly the same every day. There are only 4-5 tv stations and several are fuzzy and unwatchable.

    • Single
      8.2

      Good breakfast (included in price) and free WiFi. Very central location.

      Tap water 'not' for drinking and no mini bar. This is London, surely tap water must be drinkable!!
