Is This London's Most Laid-Back 5 Star Hotel?

 Welcome to The Capital Hotel, Knightsbridge. This family-owned, five-star, boutique hotel has an enviable location in London's Knightsbridge, just a few steps away from Harrods and Harvey Nichols and virtually on the doorsteps of most of the area's key designer boutiques. If you want to do more than shop, Hyde Park is 5 minutes away, as is Knightsbridge tube station and the area is very well served by busses.

The Capitol has just 49 rooms, and nine apartments on six floors in a quiet residential street nestled between red-brick Victorian apartments where the railings are lined with flowers. All rooms are individually designed with muted colours, antique furnishings and the family's own paintings. All rooms have handmade Savoir Mattresses and the sheets are of the finest Egyptian cotton. The apartments are perfect for long stay guests and families requiring more space.

Outlaw's, the hotel's Michelin Star Restaurant, specialises in seasonal seafood, delivered daily from Cornwell. The seasonal menus are all about sustainable seafood, modern cooking with a spotlight on the freshness of the produce. There's an encyclopedic wine list featuring reasonably priced bottles from the group's own Loire vineyard.
