Millennium Hotel London Knightsbridge
Travel Blogs from London
Good business day, which ended in the chaos they call terminal 5 i this country. Transferred the entire flight to City and flew VLM. God bless the small business airlines
... it was interesting travelling through the dense living and industrial buildings of London. We crossed the river Thames and could see the Tower Bridge and other famous landmarks. Pretty soon we were in the green green countryside of the London outskirts which is where my aunty and uncle live (Luton). By the time we arrived home the weather was pretty terrible and we were lashed by the wind and rain. It was good to get into a warm house. For Sunday (15th) we caught ...
... the sleepy avenue. I arrive and realize that my internet reservation was not at all necessary, as only a couple of tables are occupied. I sit and order a plate of french toast, orange juice, and a coffee. The place is cute, and homey, and pleasant. Vintage, mostly american music plays in the background, and i smile as Sam Cooke comes on. The french toast is actually quite yummy, topped with a caramelized banana and three pigs worth of hand-cut bacon - though it still can't ...
... and I have no sterling on me... This would of course all be fine if I hadn't also succeeded in bringing a credit card for which no one knows the pin. The phrase 'beg borrow and steal' comes to mind. The Miami to Quito flight was amazing, a sunset fading through to nighttime as we flew over huge rolling electric storms fathoms below. Apparently planes get hit by lightening regularly and the lightening probes absorb ...
Although the taxi arrives in 10 minutes dad is currently packing and still needs a shower. Florence has filled up 3/4 of her hand luggage with soft toys. Alice panicking over what to put in her hand luggage and mum is just generally panicking! And we haven't even left our own home yet! It seems the only one ready is me!
Everyone is so stressed out that I think we need a holiday! (Only joking, we are excited really)

Historical Traveler Reviews Millennium Hotel London Knightsbridge
Great Hotel, Great Location
Stayed for 10 days. 6th floor, southern view. Room was not too small (Average by European standards). Very clean and the staff was extremely nice and helpful. Restaurant had good food but on the expensive side.
Some traffic noise but being from southern california, it didn't bother me. Pub across the street for quick and inexpensive meal, Knightsbridge tube a block north, bus stop in front of hotel and Harrods around the corner (10 min walk).
We stayed for 6 nights(10/11-10/16/03). We can recommend this hotel for anyone looking into staying in the Knightsbridge area. The staff were wonderful, the room was on the small side, but in Europe this is to be expected and the bathroom even had a heated towel rack. The location was excellent(a 3 minute walk to the Underground), all the boutique designer shops one could ask for, an ATM right across the street. We found two places for breakfast. The Knightsbridge Cafe(across from the Sheraton) is a 5 minute walk from the hotel and a cafe called Arco which is out the entrance by the concierge desk and turn right and go about 100 feet or so. The concierges and bellman were most helpful. All in all the Millennium was a great experience.
My husband and I stayed at the Millennium Knightsbridge Hotel on 09/01/03. We had stayed at the Millennium Times Square in NYC and hoped the experience would be as nice in London. We were not disappointed.
Nice hotel with good location. Rooms are not large, but I doubt that many people will spend a lot time in them because of the wonderfull area around the hotel. The restaurant offers creative and delicious food for dinner.
We stayed here last November with the 99/night room rate we found online. It was a great deal! The area is really nice and you are very close to Harrod's, the Tube station and Hyde Park. Our room was beautiful with a towel warming rack in the bathroom and some of the best smelling soap. The rooms are a bit small, but pretty luxurious.
The reception desk staff are very good- very efficient and helpful. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone, especially if you can get a good rate.
Excellent hotel and good price
This was a top-quality hotel, and a great find in London for just 99 pounds/night. The rooms are compact, but very functional and quite beautifully designed. The bed, bathroom, and furniture were excellent and well-maintained. The staff were also very good and ran the hotel like one that was in a significantly higher price category. The one downside was an unbelievable price of 50p per minute to use the phone, so don't even think of connecting your computer from the hotel room and use a cell phone for any calls you want to make.
Great hotel, best location!
We've stayed at the Millennium on several recent (2001-03) trips to London and have nothing but rave reviews. The rooms are small, but well-appointed, service is excellent and the Sloane Street location can't be beat. We've also been fortunate to get great rates booking online.
Fab Hotel, great location
This is a lovely hotel right in between Gucci and Fendi, which is a shopaholics mecca. The hotel is lovely and the staff are helpful. We have stayed there many times and would not consider going elsewhere (given the quality of some more expensive hotels). Breakfast is lovely but expensive, we usually end up paying £30, so I'd recommend you only try it once!
I stayed here through a package deal through Virgin Vacations and then extended for three nights. My room was a bit small (similar to Manhattan hotel room sizes) but well appointed with nice furniture, decorations, bed linens, towels etc . . . The public areas (hallways, bars, lobby) are also nicely decorated. There were a couple of flaws in the service but at this level and price it is to be expected. Overall the staff was great and really nice - reception, concierge, housekeeping and room service. The location is fantastic for many reasons - very close to Knightsbridge tube (picadilly line) and other convenient bus lines eg, 19, 137 and night buses as well; between Chelsea, South Kensington and very convenient to Soho, Covent Garden, Holborn and Mayfair for those who like to go out on the town. The food at MJU is ok but not spectacular though it is an all caps restaurant in Zagat. I would absolutely recommend a stay here and would stay again.
I first went to London in March 2002. I had been planning my trip (and saving for it) for over a year, so I wanted to make sure I stayed in the right location to take full advantage of London. And I sure did! As a die-hard shopping, I could not have found a better located hotel. The Millennium Knightbridge is directly behind Harrods. There is a shortcut out of the back door that leads to a minute walk to the great department store. On Sloane Street itself, where the Millennium faces, are more designer shops that I could image. From Gucci to Coach to Harvey Nichols at the corner. Oxford Street is not that far either, which means ones you exhaust Harrods and Sloane Street, head to other shopping areas.
