COMO The Halkin is a 5-star hotel in London, England. It is located in Belgravia, one of London's most affluent districts, just to the east of Belgrave Square in Halkin Street. It is operated by the COMO Hotels and Resorts Group. It is considered to be one of the first boutique hotels in London.[1] The Halkin has a Georgian façade of bricks and stone, but its interior and its 41 rooms and suites has a more contemporary design. COMO The Halkin is also the very first hotel for COMO Hotels and Resorts and the hotel spent about £1 million on each of the 41 guest rooms and suites designed by Laboratorio Associati Italy. [2]

Restaurants[edit]

nahm[edit]

COMO The Halkin originally hosted a Michelin-starred Thai restaurant named nahm, run by Australian chef David Thompson, from 2001 until December 2012.[3] In 2010, a second (and currently only) nahm restaurant was opened at the Metropolitan Bangkok.[4]

Ametsa with Arzak Instruction[edit]

In March 2013, a new restaurant was opened called Ametsa with Arzak Instruction[5] (commonly referred to as simply Ametsa), serving Basque cuisine and run by a team that includes Elena Arzak and her father Juan Mari Arzak.
