Chose this hotel as my friend and I wanted to treat ourselves and managed to get a good deal through lastminute.com.
From the minute we met jim the doorman we knew we'd chosen well. The staff make this place - everyone we met was more than helpful and so friendly.
The room was lovely, everything we needed and lovely comfy beds. Free bits in minibar and turn down service too. We had fabulous cocktails in the bar which although expensive were absolutely worth it. Can't comment on the food as we didn't eat there.
The hotel is at the end of picadilly which we liked, and although we didn't realise at the time of booking, was close to hyde park and the winter wonderland. We did walk from Victoria coach station to the hotel which was fine, and then also got a taxi on two occasions to the apollo victoria and for the coach again and these cost £6.50 and £8.50 (rush hr)
No complaints here, recommended highly and will stay again.
