Intimate and stylish with an art deco vibe
The Levin was founded by experienced hotelier David Levin. This 12-room hotel is an intimate, family-run affair that offers warm personalized service. For example, there is no big front desk, but instead a beautiful reception room. There are some great special features at the hotel, including a Ralph Lauren honesty bar and a minibar stocked with a variety of champagne in every room. Art deco colors and shapes dominate the decor. In Le Metro Brasserie and beyond, the scene is laid-back and elegant.
In Knightsbridge, near excellent shopping
The Levin is located a three-minute stroll from the Knightsbridge tube station. The location is ideal for shopping, as Harrods, Harvey Nichols, and Sloane Street are all nearby. Knightsbridge is a primarily affluent shopping and residential area, populated by well-heeled locals. This neighborhood is home to some of London's wealthiest residents, including Chelsea football club owner Roman Abramovich. In addition to shopping, other London attractions are within easy walking distance, including Hyde Park and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Tailored for comfort and style, with art deco flair
The 12 rooms at the Levin are spacious, comfortable, and stocked with luxury amenities. The rooms were designed with the 1930s in mind, and feature fabrics by British designer William Yeoward and lighting by Porta Romana.
Champagne minibars and an honesty bar
The small, boutique Levin hotel has a few features to offer. In the room, Champagne minibars are a unique touch. The hotel also has an honesty bar.
On-site brasserie, and options at the sister hotel next door
Le Metro Brasserie & Bar serves delicious classics in a casual, contemporary setting. Guests looking for a more formal dining affair can go next door to the Levin's sister hotel, the Capital.
The Levin is a tiny, 12-room boutique hotel with an emphasis on personalized service. Comfortable and quiet rooms are reached by a charming 1940s cage elevator. All rooms have big flat-screen TVs, champagne-stocked minibars, and bathrooms with heated floors. A delicious continental breakfast is included in the nightly rate and is served each morning in the on-site restaurant. This chic hotel with sophisticated decor is centrally located for London shopping. The art deco vibe and delicious fare at Le Metro Brasserie help make this family-run hotel a good pick in London.
