Used this hotel for a business visit. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms was very clean and had everything I needed. They were on the small side though. Would stay here again if I return to London. Had free wifi which was great.

We stayed for one night in December. Rooms were clean and the staff were friendly. Good location as it's close to a tube station, Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. Breakfast was average - the standard buffet.

Showers have a fixed rain head plus a flexible head, but the hose won't reach around the glass partition.
