The hotel is so elegant and all tiny details has shown the care of the owner on guests. There are too many things to recommend on this hotel: not only the room, the service, the wifi, the food, the location, there are indeed much more to speak about. I am recommend to all my friends who are planning to London!

Everything about this hotel is wonderful. The front of house and concierge are welcoming, friendly and efficient. We had a standard double room facing the back but it was charming and quiet. The furnishings are not modern and cold but timeless without any hint of being dated or tired. The bathroom is well appointed with a lovely hot towel rail!...

Excellent hotel and helpful staff - especially concierge. We had room #243 which was clean and very quiet. A small room and bath even by London standards and at a price of $533 I thought overpriced. Location almost next to Harrod's and very near tube entrance. Restaurants in area cover complete price and cuisine range.

Homely, comfortable , welcoming and delightful. Five stars for loaction and general state of the hotel. The staff gets ten stars. Our special requests in sorting out our 'Springbok rugby group ' were attended to with such eagerness and perfection. Will be back and will recommend with great confidence.

It's not often that the photos and the descriptions live up to the delivery. This hotel overdelivered - early check in was available after a long flight, the room was a great size for London standards and the staff and service were exceptional throughout my stay. Would definately recommend this hotel as a very comfortable small luxury hotel.

We arrived early on a transatlantic flight and were predictably jet lagged. Fortunately, they were able to accommodate an early check-in, and that was only the beginning. The staff was incredibly attentive and helpful. It's a very fine hotel in an excellent location. Well worth the price, and I would certainly stay upon any return to London.

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcoming guests for 45 years The Capital Hotel in Knightsbridge, remains under the guidance of its original owner David Levin and his daughter Kate Levin. Few hotels in London can boast of such outstanding staff loyalty, family heritage and the ability to remain true to classic British design. An award winning grand hotel in miniature, The Capital Hotel Knightsbridge has all the advantages of a large establishment, yet exudes warmth, understated exclusivity and personal attention to detail, which only a privately owned luxury hotel can afford. This discreet London Hotel and adjacent luxury Knightsbridge apartments sit proudly on Basil Street, close to Harrods and just a few minutes from Knightsbridge Tube Station as well as Harvey Nichols, the Victoria & Albert Museum, Hyde Park and the designer shops of Sloane Street. The Capital also has their own award winning vineyard, Levin Wines, in the Loire Valley and a bakery that delivers to high end restaurants, hotels and clubs across london, The London Bakery. Next door sits the Levin Hotel, a 12 bedroom townhouse and The Metro Bistro also run by the Levin family. ... more   less
