A one night's stay (like I had last week) is definitely not enough at The Halkin. It is a spectacular hotel, with an accomodating staff and fantastic rooms. I wish every hotel could be like The Halkin! The room rates are high, but if you book far enough in advance and are willing to pre-pay for your stay, you can...

I have been staying at the Halkin for years and thoroughly enjoy staying there. They make sure that everything works very effectively for me. I am almost nervous about sharing my thoughts as I would hate the Halkin to be full of new guests the next time I book. This hotel is my home from home in London.

I really can't overstate my experience at this hotel. Beginning with the ambiance and the total attention to detail, the Halkin ranks with the best small luxury hotels I've ever visited. We spent a week in London in March, which was altogether enjoyable in large part because of our stay at the Halkin. I must say that all the excellent...

Small hotel in the midst of the consulates and embassies therefore a very classy neighborhood. The hotel is quiet however it boasts one of the best restaurants - Ametsa. Very close to fabulous shopping.

I stayed at the Halkin about three weeks ago when I was in London for the weekend. The staff was attentive without being intrusive, the room was spacious and comfortable, and it was very convenient to the Tube. In addition, the restaurant in the lobby of the hotel, Ametsa with Arzak Instruction, was opening that weekend and the concierge was...

Our visit to the new restaurant Ametsa was a treat that we were looking forward to . Lunch, the set menu and the wine pairings menu is easy to read and the a la carte is short and formidable. I had the set menu at £68 and it was well worth the price each piece was a sculptural delight to...

Remarkable. Of all the hotels I have stayed in in my 50 years of travelling, this has to be one of the most attentive and welcoming. Value also has to be added to that statement......long may that be the case. K

I was pleasantly surprised by my experience. They were going thru renovations, opening up their new restaurant. But this didn't hamper my experience at all. The location is superb and I consider it Value For Money....as London is quite expensive these days. The staff was pleasant, supportive and present. All in all a wonderful 3 days!

Neighbourhood Profile
Belgravia
Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic residences in London, sophisticated and upscale Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw away to the north, and some of Europe’s best shopping is nearby as well.

With a discreet, efficient approach to service, everything about The Halkin is about elegant understatement and its intimate feel. With just 41 rooms and suites, The Halkin is a true boutique hotel. Bespoke Italian design is combined with subtle nuances of Oriental influence with wools, silks and linens in taupes and creams. Rooms are furnished with soft carpets and warm wood panelling, and boast some of the largest bathrooms in London. The hotel restaurant Ametsa with Arzak Instruction,is a unique collaboration between Elena Arzak – voted Veuve Clicquot World’s Best Female Chef in 2012 – along with her father Juan Mari Arzak, and Mikel Sorazu, Igor Zalakain and Xabier Gutierrez.Ametsa’s approach is rooted in the traditions of ‘New Basque Cuisine’, pairing the earthy flavours and techniques of Spain’s Basque region with modern, surprising twists featuring locally-sourced and organic produce from land and sea. ... more   less
