The Levin Hotel in London is a fantastic little hotel in the heart of Knightsbridge. It is owned by father and daughter team David and Kate Levin, who own the Capital Hotel next door.

It is a 5-star boutique hotel that is small and perfectly formed, with only 12 rooms. It has all the character and charm you would expect of a traditional hotel in London. The location is excellent, only a short walk from Harrods and the rest of Knightsbridge. The building is traditional, with a real style that reflects the affluent town house surroundings.

Inside is just as appealing. The understated entrance leads into the reception where you are greeted by smiling staff and processed very quickly. We were then escorted to our 4th floor suite, shown around, then left to our own devices.

“The Levin Hotel is small and perfectly formed.”

The décor is classic English with real class. The décor is light, the touches subtle, but the overall impression is one of elegance. This allows the quality of the furniture to shine through, which it does in spades.

A mixture of Art Nouveau traditional and modern furniture sit side by side quite comfortably and give an ageless impression as you walk through the hotel. The antique lift, with metal sliding doors was the icing on the cake.

We had a Junior Suite, which featured more modern furniture and continued the elegant feeling. The suite had a bedroom, seating area, large bathroom and plenty of light. The large bed was extremely comfortable and provided a great nights’ sleep.

The bathroom continued the high quality, with decent shower, bath and Bulgari products. The room is very light, very airy and very well done. The marble effect around the bath, large mirror and characterful sink and surround is a real treat.

The overall quality of the room is reflected in the rest of the hotel. The Le Metro Bar and Brasserie offers a range of wines and light bites, while the Capital Restaurant next door serves a wider menu.

The Levin Hotel is an excellent boutique hotel in a great location. The service and attention to detail is excellent, the rooms are great and we would gladly return here again.
