The sale of London’s Ritz Hotel by the U.K.’s billionaire Barclay twins fetched less than 800 million pounds ($997 million), according to a person familiar with the matter who asked not to be identified.

Law firm Macfarlanes said in a statement that it advised one of its private Qatari investor clients on the acquisition of the hotel that opened in London’s Mayfair in 1906.
