“Location excellent, everything else on a par with price.”
Reviewed 20 June 2012

Brown's Hotel is situated right in the centre of the vibrant city of London. A few minutes walk from the shopping district of Old/New Bond Street, Buckingham Palace, Picadilly Circus to name but a few. For the price, the rooms were as expected if not a little antiquated. Don't expect all the mod-cons as you pay more for the location than for the service. The ceilings were a little low, the front desk adequate, but it does have the celebrated afternoon tea hot spot. Bed was comfortable and spacious which is a definite plus!

Brown's keeps getting better and better with its highly polished professional staff welcoming each visitor as an honored guest. Perfect food by Hix. Lively bar scene. And maybe the world!s most comfortable beds, pillows and linens. Even seven gigantic bath towels in junior suite! Glamourous Italian and Braziilian clientele Our favorite hotel!

Spent 4 days at this hotel. Location can't be beat. Very expensive but service was exceptional. Rooms were clean but somewhat dated. This hotel is in a location that's a shoppers dream. Every major player within walking distance. Many good restaurants in the area. Walking distance to Picadilly Circus and several major tourists attractions. Can't say enough about service. Would definitely stay again at thi property.

We attended a business conference at this very old but modernized hotel. I beliveve it is the oldest hotel in London. The rooms of course are updated but the ceilings are a bit low. Very comfortable beds and nice bathrooms. Service was excellent. Bar was nice and breakfast ok. The afternoon tea is very special one of the best in London. The hotel is just steps away from all the designer stores. An expensive place in a great location with super service.

While visiting London for my grand-daughters 21st she wonted to experience High Tea, me being on a Gluten Free diet it was a matter of finding an establishment that catered for both normal food and Gluten.Grand-daughter came up with Browns Hotel they gave us first class treatment from the minute we stepped inside the door. The variety of food for both diets was exceptional in taste presentation and atmosphere (we were sat beside the open fire on a cold rainy day) sandwiches, cakes, scones, choice of wines, tea.I would recommend the High Tea at this hotel as 5 star and when we were to leave the hotel porter went to the end of the street in the rain to get us a taxi.

Room Tip: I only visited this hotel for HIgh Tea in London

We endeavour to cater for all dietary requirements, in particular gluten-free as it is becoming more prevalent, and especially in making it delicious!
