Here’s a well kept secret, one that combines the luxury of a top hotel with the intimacy of a guesthouse. Women, solo or otherwise, love it. Why wouldn’t they when it’s a designer bag’s swing from Harrods and Harvey Nichols? The Levin is the baby sister of The Capital, almost next door. If The Capital is small, The Levin is tiny: 12 bedrooms arranged around a staircase that spirals through five floors, with a dramatic, 18-metre shimmering chandelier cascading down the stairwell like an art installation. The lobby has beautiful duck-egg blue walls, with a feel of the 1930s, and the minute lift is a nostalgic throwback. The bedrooms are the sort you may never want to leave: suave, with particularly good lighting, a selection of interesting paperbacks and – best of all – the champagne minibar, with all the ingredients, including recipes, for the perfect champagne cocktail. Tucked away in the basement is The Metro, the hotel’s elegant little bistro.
