Reviews for The Berkeley
The Berkeley has always has a level of unhurried service that is exceptional, not just for London but throughout the US and Europe. The hotel recently went through a modernization and upgrade. This was done in a high quality way, but the decor is no longer English elegant and is more modern/funky. I enjoyed my stay very much in spite of the decor.

I've booked to go to Pret a Portea Afternoon Tea to celebrate my friend's birthday. We really enjoyed the food and service. It was a treat for both of us. The waitress who was looking after us was very nice and friendly. The food was delicious and it was loads. We couldn't even finish everything, but the hotel offered a very nice bag to take away the leftover. We are definitely thinking about coming back. The only thing that wasn't very good, it the toilet downstairs was not working and they kind improvised a toilet upstairs, but it was very confusing because it felt like we were entering to a room instead of toilet.

Great hotel. The location is amazing, the staff friendly, the pool/spa special. Very relaxing. Have stayed both for business and for pleasure with my wife and very much look forward to staying here every time am in London. Luxurious hotel without costing a fortune, highly recommend it.

I wanted to give 5 stars but several factors prevented this. The hotel staff was wonderful; knowledgeable, professional and always helpful. They deserve 5 stars!! We returned at 4:30 from a day of travel and went to restaurant for coffee and late lunch and were told they were booked. There was no other place in hotel to even sit and have coffee as there is a very small lobby. The renovated bathroom was beautiful but not functional; heavy wood sliding doors and no place to blow dry hair or counter space to place toiletries. Bathroom floors were slippery when wet and signs placed in several locations to be careful of slippery floors.

This review is benchmarking The Berkeley to other luxury city hotels that we have stayed at such as Baccarat, Park Hyatt, St. Regis, etc. Room (4 out of 5): We stayed in the Chelsea suite with an adjoining Deluxe King Room. Both types of room were considerably spacious with adequate closet space. Both rooms also had a small foyer between the hallway and the bedroom, which kept out any unwanted noise from the elevators or other guests. The rooms were very clean and the twice-daily turndown service helped keep everything tidy. No bad remarks about the rooms except for the average view of Wilton Place. Food and Beverage (4/5): Breakfast was good with a wide selection of dishes to choose from. Unfortunately, we were unable to try the renowned PrĂŞt-Ă -Portea (we missed it by 8 minutes!). However, the staff were more than happy to serve us regular tea which was much appreciated since it was quite late in the evening. Everything was freshly made save for a cold plate of scones, but a waiter made sure to replace it with a plate of scones straight out of the oven without us having to ask! We also spent a night at the Blue Bar. Although the atmosphere was average, the contemporary decor and excellent service made up for it. The drinks were good and the hors dâ€™oeuvres were tasty. Our generous waiter gave us free shots and champagne! The hotel does a good job at paying attention to detail when it comes to food. Everything is carefully considered. One little tip for anyone planning a stay at the Berkeley: stay in one night, watch a movie, and order popcorn from the room-service menu. What other hotels make a bag of microwave popcorn seem so luxurious? Service (5/5): Impeccable service from every member of staff. You are taken care of even before you enter the hotel! Absolutely no complaints and no bad experiences with the service throughout our stay. Definitely ranks at the top amongst other city hotels weâ€™ve stayed at. Location (4/5): The Berkeley allows you to enjoy the peace and quiet while being in a central location. Of course you are surrounded with high-end shopping since Harvey Nichols, Harrods, and Brompton road, and Sloane street are all within a 10 minute walk. Other shopping hubs such as Oxford, Regent, and (New) Bond street can be reached by cab or tube. We visit London at least twice a year and although we stay in the Knightsbridge/Belgravia area often, we prefer other areas such as Mayfair, SoHo, and Kensington. With that said, the Berkeley made it much more enjoyable to stay in the area. Miscellaneous (4/5): There was construction going on across the street, but as promised that didnâ€™t bother us. Also, black cabs are available 24/7 to take you wherever you please. The vintage-style, wood-clad elevators add to the hotel's charm. Overall we had a very pleasant stay. The Berkeley provides you with the relaxation and luxury that you need after a busy day in London. The rooms kept us comfortable and well-rested, and the staff made us feel like members of the royal family! Of course, all of this come at a very high and questionable price. Nonetheless, we would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who can afford it, except families with younger children (which is understandable).
