The Halkin Hotel Review

: One of the first designer hotels to spring up in London, The Halkin still comes as something of a surprise. It's pure Italian, from the minimalist décor to the Giorgio Armani staff uniforms. From the moment you enter the granite, marble-floored lobbies with Italian-designed leather sofas and chairs, you realize that chintz and the English country-house look have been rejected in favor of clean, lean and very sophisticated lines. Large bedrooms each have their own seating area, and the general scheme is minimal with lots of wood on the walls and plenty of mirrors. Most of the splendid all-marble bath facilities have their own walk-in showers. Rooms boast all the latest techno-gadgetry, including interactive E-TV, high security key systems and complimentary Wi-Fi and high-speed Internet access. The acclaimed Ametsa with Arzak Instruction restaurant serves Basque cuisine and features a handsome adjoining private dining room for parties up to thirty guests. The small bar adjacent to the lobby is invariably full of designer-clad patrons. Guests also enjoy complimentary use of the nearby COMO Shambhala Health Club (located in the Metropolitan by COMO, London), with a gym, steam rooms and Asian-inspired spa treatments.
