    Millennium Knightsbridge - a great value

    by

    Stayed in March of 2005.
    We picked this hotel because it was the cheapest out of the nice hotels and every review was favorable---that was unusual!
    We found it to be very good. The staff was all very professional but didn't bug us everytime we walked past...they brought things to our room in a timely manner. The room was rather large by European standards. We had a junior suite with a sitting area and a foldout couch, a love seat and a chair. We had one and a half bath and it was clean and comfortable. The hallway was old but who stays in the hallway?? We even had a balcony - (had a view of the back of the hotel but - it was still pleasent to go out there) The breakfast was continental with the room - and offered cereals, fresh fruit, freshly squeezed juices, ham, bread and pasteries - very filling. Beautiful dining room -- overall a great value in my book! It was also very convienent to the Knightbridge tube station and Harrods!

    Stayed here January 2002. It was, all things considered, very uninspiring. Staff was a bit uppity for us - I walked through the lobby and past the front desk several times a day, and no one ever made eye contact or said anything. Location was ok, but not a lot of dining options in immediate area - had to go maybe 3 blocks to find something, more like 5-6 blocks to have real options. Great room - very small (which I don't mind) but very well appointed. Smallest bathroom in the history of the world.

    Unique Quality: I can't really recommend this hotel. All I ask of hotel staff is that they not be rude, and these folks were. Worse, they were indifferent. The location looks good on the map and sounds good (Knightsbridge!), but in reality everything you need is really several blocks away.

    Directions: Heart of Knightsbridge - close to everything, but not "really close" to anything.

Wonderful Experience

by TripAdvisor Member eurotravelers

Our family of four stayed at the Millennium Knightsbridge over the Thanksgiving holiday for four nights. The hotel was elegant and immaculate, staff very helpful, conceirge the best I've experienced, the location was ideal for using busses and the Tube. The Tube is within the same block of the hotel. Harrods is around the corner, and Harvey Nichols is on the corner. The hotel is on Sloane Street, also known as the Rodeo Drive of London, Fendi, Versace, Tiffany's, etc. surround the hotel. On the down side, we did not eat at the hotel due to exorbatant pricing. The bed, even for European standards, was hard and all our backs sufferred. The rooms were very small. All of which did not dampen our overall 4-star rating of the hotel.

Try another hotel

by A TripAdvisor Member

Just came back from 6 days at this hotel. Was very disappointed. Other than its location in a very desirable section of london (Buckingham palace was within walking distance and designer shopping was literally next door) the hotel is simply not worth your money or time.

The room was extremely small, so small that two people could not walk around it at the same time (one always had to move into the bathroom to allow the other one to pass). Our room by the elevator was noisy.

Readers should understand that in the summer, families from desert countries come here to vacation, which means that you have kids and families hanging all over the hotel, day and night (with nothing to do mind you).

While the concierge was helpful, the evening desk employees need more training. Our room did not contain an in room safe despite the hotel telling us it did. The small lobby safe deposit boxes were either full or broken. Finally the manager on duty was able to get us into a box.

We loved London but will not stay here again. Our internet price did not include breakfast, and the hotel charges a ridiculous amount to purchase it. The cafe, Arco around the corner was a pleasant place to visit and we went there several times for breakfast and lunch.

Great Location, But Pricey

by A TripAdvisor Member

This is a great location for shopping, but that is the trade off, the rooms are small and the resturaunt in the hotel is pricey-£95 each for a 4 course meal. The pub across the road "the Gloucester" nice for a drink but don't eat there, my girlfriend got food poisioning from it.

Ok

by TripAdvisor Member wackychick20

Hotel is in a good location close to shopping area of Knightsbridge. It is also in walking distances of other areas buckingham palace and oxford street around 20mins.
Hotel it self was OK we got a discounted deal off a reputable website but would not pay the full price. Felt that room was clean but could do with a lick of paint. Ideal for business trips.

Convenient for Shoppers

by A TripAdvisor Member

We stayed here in May of 2003. The hotel is in a convenient location. The tube station is right around the corner and we were able to take the tube everywhere in London. The buses are also very easy to follow and many stop closeby.

Our room was VERY small. The view from our room looked into a run-down building. The lobby is also very small. Everything was clean, modern and well-kept. Breakfast was included in our rate; it's not worth paying for.

During the day, there are many stores to browse through. However, I didn't think there was much to do around the area of this hotel at night. After the shops close, the whole area seems to shut down. For dinner, we would take the tube to other areas.

We chose this hotel because we found a reasonable rate. If you're in London to shop, this is a good hotel to stay at. However, if you are looking to spend a lot of time in your hotel room, I would suggest somewhere else.

Surprised by the positive reviews

by A TripAdvisor Member

I am very surprised to read the positive reviews for this hotel.

I found this hotel to be WAY substandard for a supposed 4 star hotel. The room was tiny, decorated in a tacky 80's style, and not terribly clean. The hallways were dimly lit and gloomy. I found the reception staff to be a bit brusque, and the downstairs bar staff was unhelpful. The upstairs bar area is pretty nice and the staff was more pleasant.

The location is great, of course.

I would not want to stay here again.

Pleasantly surprised

by TripAdvisor Member Sanddancer55

I spent the last weekend at the Millenium Hotel and I was very pleasantly surprised at the high standards as I had read the negative reports by previous visitors who posted here on Tripadvisor. The staff were courtious and helpful. The room was not huge but more than adequate for our needs. The decor was modern and chic. The full english breakfast, which was inclusive in our deal, was one of the nicest I have had. There was an excellent selection of fruits, cereals, breads , meats and yogurts to choose from, followed by an adequate cooked breakfast. All served by attentive and polite staff.
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for its service and excellent location in Knightsbridge.

Great Stay

by TripAdvisor Member bob ashdown

We couldn't be happier with our experience at the Millennnium. The staff is efficient, helpful, and friendly. Although small by US standards, the room was more than adequate for our needs and even had a comfortable chair for relaxation after a day of site seeing. The continental breakfast, included in our package, is excellent. I sent an Email in advance to let the reservation staff know that we would be arriving early, and was pleased to find a room ready for us when we arrived at 11:00. Two tube stations are nearby, and the Piccadilly Line provides a direct trip to Heathrow. We sampled Polish, Indian, and English pub food in neighborhood restaurants that are within walking distance of the hotel. We had a great stay!

Am traveling to London for the first time with husband and 12-year-old daughter. Am looking for a hotel and am prepared to spend around $200 (around $105 pounds). Need a place big enough for all three of us, prefer private bath, convenient locale. Don't want to be surrounded just by other Americans. Thanks.

RE: London Hotels

We just came back and had a 15 year old girl with us. We stayed at the Millenium Knightsbridge. It turned out to be about $50 a person per night (or 25 pounds) We found the deal on the internet - for a double and we upgraded to a Junior suite. The room was quite nice and had a large bed (i'd say more like a Queen) an elevated level that had it's own TV and a pull out couch. ! 1/2 bath...not too bad. It was right around the corner from the Knightsbridge Tube station.
