The Capital Hotel in Knightsbridge is a family-owned, five-star hotel that proves that not all good hotels need a corporation behind them. Itís a well-run, high quality venue in one of the smartest parts of town.

Anyone looking for a taste of England and old-fashioned, family hospitality would do well to consider The Capital. It has an old-world charm in a modern setting. The dťcor is traditional without being overbearing. The light colours, understated furniture and patterned soft furnishings ensure you feel at home.

Everything is of a very high quality and standards are high. From the moment youíre greeted at the door until the moment you leave, you are made to feel welcome.

We had a Junior Suite which had a front-facing window and plenty of space to move around. The large window let in lots of light while keeping the worst of the traffic noise out. The large bed was comfortable and the pillows firm and plump. We had a good night sleep which left us feeling refreshed in the morning.

ďThe Capital Hotel in Knightsbridge is of a very high quality.Ē

The rest of the suite had a good bathroom with separated shower and bath, nice products and a cleanliness to instil real confidence. The Kiehl products were nice too.

There was also a seating area with a comfortable sofa and armchairs around a small coffee table. Unlike many of its contemporaries, the suite also had plenty of storage. It also had an LCD TV, minibar, air conditioning, laptop safe, Wi-Fi and a range of extra services to make even the best quality hotels weep, including a personal shopper for Harrods or Harvey Nichols which were just down the road.

The rest of the hotel were just as well turned out. The public areas were clean, quiet and displayed the quality we were beginning to expect. The Capital Restaurant was a grand, but relaxed dining room, with high ceilings, lots of light and plenty of space between diners.

The service was superb, the accommodation comfortable and relaxed and our experience entirely positive. We would definitely stay here again.
