This hotel has just a great location, within walking distance of several tourist attractions as well the main shopping streets. We arrived late and were upgraded to a large room with a view over Green Park. The room was quiet despite overlooking a busy street. I appreciated the luxury to enjoy the free soft drinks, water, chocolates from the minibar (alcohol consumption for an extra cost) and free tea and Nespresso coffee. The staff was friendly and helpful. I also liked the convenience of the American and European electrical plugs in the room for the travelers without the UK power adapters as well as the free wifi. My only concern was concerning the breakfast which lacked the professionalism and quality of the rest of the hotel (loud and clumsy staff, poor choices of the buffet and Mayfair prices). We ended up having a delicious breakfast at a nearby coffee for a fraction of the price. The only hiccups are for the false fire alarm in the afternoon as well as the lack of warm water one morning (the latter being compensated by a personal note from the manager as well as a bottle of champagne). I will definitively come back if I can match a future visit with a good offer on the deal.
