Hotel information
The Capital is unique; a jewel set in the heart of Knightsbridge.

Each of its 49 air-conditioned suites and bedrooms is individually designed, subtly luxurious and supremely comfortable.

The Capital has all the advantages of a larger establishment, yet exudes the warmth, intimacy and attention to detail, which only a privately owned hotel can afford. It truly is a grand hotel in miniature.

From the moment you are greeted by the liveried doorman, you will experience a cordial yet discreet welcome.

Familiar with the patronage of royalty, heads of state and international celebrities, The Capital has, over the years, established an enviable reputation for understated exclusivity.
Room information
Every piece of furniture, work of art and accoutrement is hand picked or, indeed, commissioned by the Levin family. Hence, it is the family's personally-chosen collection of original paintings which adorn the walls.

The exquisite interiors incorporate the work of acclaimed names from the world of British design such as Nina Campbell, and David Linley, nephew of Her Majesty The Queen.
