There is an intimate bar flanking the hotel's polished lobby, popular for quiet meetings throughout the day. In this same area, also find our highly experienced Concierge team. Nearly all our guests dine at Nahm, which has a formidable reputation, successfully securing the world's first Michelin star for Thai cooking. Nahm's private dining facilities are also popular for high-end events - business and pleasure. Halkin has many Guest Services, including those to cater for families and extensive facilities to cater for disabled access. It is a seductive, insider's hotel and has affirmed itself as a favourite with many discerning individuals. Halkin offers a host of complimentary extras for frequent guests. The hotel's 41 rooms share a sleek, cosseting aesthetic, featuring cool taupes, creams and beige crafted by Italian designer Edith Leschke of Milanese studio Laboratorio Associati. A chic and modern edge is powerfully felt in uncluttered spaces, the satisfying curves and lines softened by textures, colours and shades of marble. Each floor, differently inspired, explores a subtle palette drawn from water, air, earth, fire and sky. On the fifth floor, concave ceilings and rich wood pannelling create a cocoon-like feeling of warmth and comfort. Enjoy the sense of space afforded by intelligent design with an eye to detail, from leather-bordered taffeta curtains to decadent, all-marble bathrooms - among the largest in London with separate walk-in showers.
