  • 6.0.Good

    The Capital used to be an amazing hotel with excellent staff. It still has excellent staff but a few things have changed since the last time I stayed there (about 2 years ago). The rooms are dated and in need of a refresh, basic things are no longer available without quite a bit of effort (e.g. no tea or coffee facilities in the room unless you ask on a daily basis for them, and even then we made do mostly with our own supplies), and be careful with the fridge! There are no mini bar items - or at least there wasn't for us - but there was a couple of bottles of water which we had received free in other 5 star hotels over our couple of week trip to England. At the Capital we got charged for them. The staff are still wonderful, but I'm not sure that makes up for the rest anymore.

    Perfect for Knightsbridge shopping - Harrods

    My family and I had a fantastic stay at The Capital, the hotel staff, Lorena, are very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be going back, and the location is perfect for Knightsbridge shopping and the Museum’s.

    Wonderful hotel. Great location and considering the area it is in it still was able to appear luxurious and high class, albeit in an understated way

  • 4.0.Fair

    The Capital Hotel has always been a favourite in the past, when visiting London. The Covid 19 restrictions has influenced one part in the lovely and classy hotel. The dress code seems to have been totally scrapped and sadly, some guests insult the history and delightful facilities, appearing in shorts, hanging shirts and sandals in the bar & restaurant areas, a fact that has shocked us. After our first night's "experience" in the other wise pleasant bar where the service was excellent, we refrained from going to the bar or restaurant for the duration of our stay. We did inform the staff of our disappointment, as it seemed that the establishment allowed the presence of a person you might expect to see on a sea front, because he was a paying guest....???? We were not happy on check in as we were given an inferior, rear facing double room instead of the Capital Deluxe King or Queen we had paid for. On complaining, they managed to move us to the right room in the front of the hotel. We find this rather strange and if it was not that we new the hotel rooms from previous visits, we might have accepted what was given which would have spoiled our 3-night stay in London.

    Fabulous location right next to Harrods. Very helpful and friendly staff who go above and beyond to help and make your stay the best possible. Lovely Temple Spa toiletries in bathroom and great powerful shower. Soft and luxurious bed linen with super comfy beds. Will definitely be back!

  • 8.0.Very good

    A great hotel very close to Harrods

    A great hotel and literally about 50m from Harrods. I would give it a 5* rating but the air conditioning in the junior suite was very old fashioned - it works fine but it’s very noisy to sleep to if you’re a light sleeper like me, but at least it was available, as the room was very hot without it. I think they are in the process of refurbishing the hotel though, so it might be that other rooms have a modern quiet one? Not entirely sure though. Staff are very professional and friendly. Would we stay again? Definitely!
