My next stop on my recent trip to England was in Belgravia, one of my favorite parts of London. I was staying at my first COMO branded hotel, which was The Halkin. After a short walk, I arrived and checked into my suite on the third floor.
Upon entry, I observed a beautiful bathroom and then worked my way through the living room and the bedroom. The living room was large and had lots of features to notice, including gorgeous artwork, a large sofa and an impressive terrace. The staff were kind enough to leave me a tray of chocolate which really hit the spot!
The bathroom featured the type of traditional luxury I enjoy with granite in all areas, as well as high-quality bathroom fixtures. The shower could really pump out some water! I was also sure to relax and take a bath in the large bathtub.
The styling in the bedroom was quite minimal, in a good way of course. The bedding was white in color and enticed me to take a nap. Wow! The pillows felt like little pockets of heaven.
The hallways in the hotel had a very gorgeous design. It almost felt like I was in a museum. Just like in the guestrooms, there were more works of art in public areas of the hotel, which added to the ambiance.
You’ll find the gym on -1 floor. The interior design was the same theme as the guestrooms, clean and bright. The gym offers cardio machines and free weights. It’s not the most extensive in the equipment department, but I didn’t have any issues getting a great workout in. The hotel does not have a pool, steam room or sauna.
During my stay I was sure to try their very famous Ametsa with Arzak Instruction restaurant. This is also the dining-room where you can find the breakfast. You’ll have to read about the dinner in a separate article. Suspenseful I know! The restaurant has a beautiful feeling in both the daytime and night. During breakfast, I could look out to see the lovely greenery. The English breakfast was well done and I would recommend you to try one of their blended drinks. I went with the Clean London Greens, you’re welcome!
All in all, my stay at the The Halkin was very smooth. I didn’t have one bad experience while there! Everyone was incredibly friendly and welcoming. The rooms were glorious and the design of the entire hotel was attractive. The food was amazing for all meals in their Ametsa with Arzak Instruction restaurant. Therefore, I would highly insist you to visit The Halkin by COMO hotels as soon as possible!
