Joanna’s Comments

A superb townhouse hotel situated a few steps from Harrods in the heart of Knightsbridge. Bedrooms at The Capital are elegant and comfortable, with air conditioning, custom-made furniture, handmade mattresses, Egyptian cotton sheets and a wonderful selection of paintings from the original owner’s collection. The junior suites have one and a half bathrooms. 4 of these suites also have walk-in showers rooms and are called Superior Junior Suites. There are full hotel services, a car park and a wonderfully welcoming staff. Kate Levin, daughter of the founder and original owner David Levin, has made many improvements to the bedrooms and bathrooms, and has made them lighter and brighter. It is advisable to book the restaurant when booking the hotel, as Nathan Outlaw, a two-Michelin- starred chef, is in charge of The Capital kitchens and Outlaw’s at The Capital. He splits his week between his two-Michelin-star restaurant in Cornwall and the Capital’s new restaurant.

Situated between The Capital and The Levin are The Capital Apartments. There are one- and two-bedroom apartments available for one-week rentals. All services can be used from The Capital, including room service and concierge. Occasionally apartments can be available for shorter periods. Rates are very good value and vary depending on times of year and are on request.

The Capital’s restaurant, Outlaw’s at The Capital, has a Michelin star.
The Capital Hotel won the World’s Best Culinary Hotel at the World Boutique Hotel Awards 2015.

Kate Levin was voted UK Independent Hotelier of the Year for 2016 at the Independent Hotel Show.
