The best address in London - if money is no object

London's Capital Hotel is a classic British five-star boutique hostelry.

Perfectly situated, just around the corner from Harrods of Knightsbridge, it offers style and sophistication to a well-heeled audience of global travellers.



The Capital has just launched its new luxury penthouse - a London bolthole for those looking for discretion and plenty of space. Go on, spread out. You've paid for it.  

Now available for summer stays, it is priced at £2000 per night - which puts it well out of my budget; but hopefully not yours.



On the first floor is a bright sitting room with floor-to-ceiling windows that lead to a charming terrace – an extremely rare facility in the heart of London.

Across the hall is a large, well-equipped, open-plan kitchen/dining area for additional entertaining space. Upstairs is an elegant en-suite master bedroom – also with private terrace overlooking the roofs of Knightsbridge - and a double bedroom, a fully-fitted dressing room, separate bathroom and storage space.

The Capital’s concierge, housekeeping and front office team are on hand for guests to tailor their visit in accordance with their individual requirements. Ask for a llama to be sent to your room and no one will bat an eyelash. It's the style of place where the customer is always right.

The Knightsbridge Penthouse is fully-equipped for self-catering, or guests may book a table for Outlaws at The Capital (the Michelin-starred in-house eatery that specialises in Cornish seafood - also highly recommended). There are a variety of recently renovated meeting rooms and the on-site car park, also a London rarity.

The Capital’s whisky bar is open daily. Ask for a glass of wine from owner David Levin and wife's own winery in the Loire Valley of France. His daughter Kate is the general manager. 

Should they wish to visit local attractions, guests are within walking distance of Harrods, Hyde Park and the V&A Museum. 

The Capital (www.capitalhotel.co.uk) has 49 jolly comfortable bedrooms, including eight suites, and a selection of comfortable apartments. Tell them I sent you.
