My sister Nora arranged a very special trip to the Tower of London to view the "Ceremony of the Keys" as a guest of the Yeoman Warders (Beefeaters). This was a brilliant evening as we were escorted around the various towers by one of the Beefeaters, who gave an absolutely fantastic and very detailed description of the many historical events during the reign of Henry VIII and Elisabeth I. The evening started with a tour of tower ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Halkin by COMO London
Great Room, Great Service
I could not have been happier with The Halkin. This is a top rate small hotel. The staff are attentive without being overbearing and the room was beautiful and very comfortable. It's in a good central London location right by Buckingham Palace with easy access to the Tube and Hyde Park. Highly recommended.
When you book to stay in a hotel as exclusive as the Halkin you naturally expect something special. This expectation is surpassed as soon as you enter your room. From the personal (handwritten) greeting from the manager to the luxuriously apponted complete marble bathroom as you explore the room the attention to detail is breathtaking. Personal control panels at your bedside allow you to create your desired lighting effect. The only reservation we had was the lack of personal tea and coffee making facility, however this was being picky, and if you are staying in a hotel of this class then why should you make a cuppa yourself?! Would reccomend the Halkin to everybody; business or pleasure. For the personal touch and the wow factor I think it would be extremely hard to beat. Final note, prior to booking check the Leading Hotels of the World website for special rates.
Superb, sophisticated, and elegant
Having stayed in many 5 star hotels, we were extraordinarily impressed by the superb service and exquisite and tasteful manner in which this small, boutique hotel is appointed. Our Deluxe Room was spacious; the bathroom was elegant; the halls were exceptionally attractive. Everything from the towels to the leather accessories was first class. The location is wonderful, in an elite residential section of Belgravia yet walking distance to London's finest shops and best restaurants. We would recommend this hotel to the most discriminating traveler or business professional.
Stayed at the Halkin for one night last December - I was not paying, my company was. When I am not the one footing the bill, I tend to be less picky and pay less attention to detail. However, from what I can remember, I keep a good impression of the Halkin. Professional service, peaceful atmosphere, stylish, spacious rooms (although in comparison, the bathroom was just a tad cramped, but nothing serious). My only niggle: the window in my room was absolutely tiny, did not let in much daylight and looked kinda lost in a huge wall! After the initial surprise, this did not bother me too much as I was only to be there to sleep.
So calm, so cool, so stylish, so relaxing.
Stayed at The Halkin again [for third time, just to emphasise that we remain impressed]. It has a real sense of calm and serenity, more like a very upmarket serviced apartment complex rather than a bustling busy hotel.
The rooms, certainly the junior suites, are really smart, with fittings and furnishings of the highest quality, lovely beds and top class bedding. The sofas, in particular, are really fabulous.
Breakfast is monumental!
Not keen on Nahm, but if you like Thai cuisine you'd probably love it.
One hint, check out the special offers on LHW website, then phone the hotel for a reservation. If you quote what LHW are offering, then you are likey to save a packet.
Best Hotel Ever!
We love boutique hotels so we decided to try both the Halkin and it's sister-hotel, the Metropolitan on our recent trip to London. After seeing the Halkin, we cancelled our reservations to the Metropolitan.
The staff at the Halkin is great. They are attentive, smart and answered every request we had. The concierge made reservations at both Nobu (where we saw Demi and Ashton) and a nice Indian restaurant in the neighborhood.
On the other hand, when we went to the Metropolitan to use it's gym and treatment rooms, the reception staff seemed snobby...I'm glad we changed our reservation!
We would definitely return to the Halkin.
Dougals Adams Fan? Stay at the Startship Titanic!!!!
This hotel is fantastic. It is like no-where i have stayed before. The staff are so nice. We were unsure of where to eat, not only did the concierge recommend a fantastic restaurant he made reservations and organised a taxi. We enjoyed our visit to the Halkin so much that we returned there in April of this year and my Fiance Proposed in room 406....
For anyone who is a Douglas Adams fan, they will recognised the Starship Titanic in the marble walls of the corridors. Very stylish.
If you are going to London I would recommend a visit it's so unique.
We needed a night out in London away from phones and the work waiting for us at home. The Halkin provided the perfect retreat.
This hotel is just stunning. The location is fantastic and quiet, looking out to the opposite gardens.
Peace and Calm
Quiet location, fabulous room, great service and outstanding dining. If you're looking for a great experience (at a cost), book the room and dinner package. Great staff.
