Freshly baked croissants at breakfast, cool marble bathrooms and gorgeous beds - Harrods is fifty paces away and Hyde Park close

This is shopaholic heaven – Harrods at one end of the street, Harvey Nicks at the other. As for the Levin, it sits quietly on Basil Street, a peaceful retreat in the middle of Knightsbridge. A lively café/bar/restaurant acts as the hub; you can enjoy breakfast here of freshly backed croissants, nip back early for afternoon tea or a filling lunch; perhaps Cornish mussels in cider cream and parsley to start then a tasty spinach, blue cheese & red onion frittata as your main. If that's not enough, nip next door to the Capital (their sister hotel) where you’ll find Outlaw's, a Michelin star restaurant. Bedrooms are spread over four floors with a lift to carry you up, though you may prefer to walk; a contemporary chandelier with an 18-metre drop fills the stairwell. As for the rooms, some are bigger, others smaller, but all have the same crisp style: bold colours, hand-stitched beds, marble bathrooms, books galore. Bigger rooms have sofas, all have white robes, crisp linen, Bose radios and flat-screen TVs. You get air conditioning and a Handy smartphone, too. There's a full concierge service, iPads are available at reception. Hyde Park is close.

  • The Levin is situated right in the heart of Knightsbridge in a quiet but central location on Basil Street. The closest hotel in the world to Harrods and minutes from Harvey Nichols, our location is every shopper's dream.
  • For those interested in art and culture, The Victoria and Albert Museum, The Natural History Museum and the Royal Academy of Arts are also a short walk away. We are walking distance to the Royal Albert Hall, and Cadogan Hall, home to the renowned BBC Proms
  • For a leisurely stroll or a picnic, we are a few minutes from Hyde Park and just a little further are Kensington Gardens and St James park.
  • Knightsbridge Underground station is located next to Harrods, assuring easy, fast and direct access from Heathrow airport and St. Pancras International station, as well as many other places of interest within and around Central London.
