Where to stay in London: the top hotels by guest satisfaction

With the spotlight on London for the big wedding, this is a perfect opportunity to celebrate the hotels whom guests consider to be the city’s hotel royalty: Egerton House, The Levin, Haymarket Hotel, The SoHo Hotel and The Milestone Hotel. The list come from ReviewPro’s City Rankings Project that is working to identify the most popular hotels in 100 major cities as determined by guest reviews, gathering data from over 60 online travel agencies, in 10 languages from 3, 4 and 5 star hotels within the past 12 months. On Wednesday they announced their ranking of top-rated hotels for London, Barcelona and Madrid. For the first quarter of 2011, Egerton House took the number one spot in London. Known for it’s style and flair, this refurbished luxury townhouse is located in Knightsbridge, one of London’s posh neighborhoods. Guests like the Egerton House’s special touches, like personally selected chocolates each night, televisions in the bathrooms, and complimentary champagne at check-in. Securing the second spot in the ranking was The Levin. Owned and operated by the renowned hotelier David Levin, this boutique hotel twists modern with classic British elegance, offering cool and comfortably designed spaces. Guests love its proximity to top stores like Harrod’s, which is conveniently around the corner, that makes it a perfect fit for a shopping-and-strolling styled visit. Coming in third is Haymarket Hotel. Situated at the corner of Haymarket and Suffolk Place in the heart of the theatre district, this hotel offers a taste of sumptuous modern glamour. Guest who stay love the public spaces such as the well-designed courtyard, spacious and well-lit conservatory and the optically enhanced and large indoor pool. Noble blood or not, a stay at one of these hotels may make you feel like royalty.

  1. I would like to add to the top 10 list with the Thistle hotel next to Hyde park, I have been there many times and the rooms I have stayed in were at least double the size of any normal hotel room in the states, I would almost call it a suite. The rooms I was in had a separate seating section with a couch and a few chairs around a table. A nice change of pace to the normal hotel room with no place to set but on the bed.
