I spent 4 nights at the VSC and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It was centrally located at Marble Arch across from Hyde Park, close to Oxford Street and Park Lane so everything was within easy reach. I am a sole traveler and on arrival, I was directed to a single room on the third floor. I opened the door to a very nice room - lovely and very well appointed and very, very clean and modern. There was a single bed, a desk with a flat panel TV, tea/coffee making facilities, lovely curtains with tie-backs at 2 windows which looked down into a courtyard; a very modern and very clean bathroom with toiletries. Thankfully too, there was an iron and ironing board.
A fabulous buffet breakfast was included, and was magnificent. The only downside was that I was unable to receive WIFI in my room but was able to access this downstairs in the Reading Room (this room had lots of magazines and all the daily newspapers). The bar and bistro were a superb welcome end to a full day of sightseeing. The valet/porter at the entrance to the VSC, was exceptionally helpful and he was able to give me a map and precise directions for my daily sightseeing. I can highly recommend the VSC. Everything was perfect – wonderful staff, excellent room and magnificent breakfasts and oh so central.
