Superb 9.2 From 114 reviews

The Capital Hotel, London
Fabulous location for shopping, perhaps the friendliest staff we have ever encountered, wonderful room (upgrade to junior suite), super-comfortable bed. Smaller hotel, which is what we wanted. But...beyond breakfast we were unable to enjoy any of the other hotel services. Could not enjoy dinner nor tea, and squeezed into the bar area one afternoon. Would have preferred to know the significant importance of reservations at the venues (were left literally scrambling for dinner one evening). Bottom line, we enjoyed a sleeping site in a wonderful location with absolutely top end staff but were left short of the 'other things' we might expect from a hotel.

Maid needs a check list
There is no room in the room to sit at a table and eat breakfast, lunch or dinner from room service. On our first night, the maid forgot to leave us water, and on the second night she forgot to leave us face cloths. The chef was fantastic and accommodating By making non-gluten non-sugar nondairy meals. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the room incredibly quiet.

Extraordinary hotel experience
Our experience at this hotel was simply extraordinary. The location is perfect - I do not believe there could be a better location for shopping in London. Located literally right around the corner from Harrod's and Sloane Street. The staff were delightful to a person. They harken back to times when people actually took pride in their work and went about it with vigor and genuine interest. This was a most delightful surprise - even in a 5 star hotel. The entire hotel projected a warm and welcoming vibe. Very traditional (which we love and appreciate) and tastefully decorated. Our room was extremely comfortable and very quiet. The bed was perfect. The shower was also outstanding. They provided an oversized room safe, which was a welcome touch. Did I mention that the service was extraordinary? Without a doubt, this will be our new "go to" hotel when visiting London. I simply cannot say enough good things about our experience at this property.
