My husband and I visit London every year for a weekend away and normally stay at the Langham hotel (which is amazing) but, this time we decided to have a splurge and book the Mandarin. We have previously stayed at the Mandarin in Bangkok and it was beautiful so we had the same expectations for this hotel in London.
The location of the hotel is great, straight opposite the road is Harvey Nicolas and it is very close the Harrods so it is a great location for shopping. The down side for us was the inside of the hotel, The first room they tried to put us in was on the 9th floor, the room was extremely small and tatty with a view of a wall! We had to complain and was offered another room but, the other room wasn't ready until after 4pm. When we finally got into our second room it was better- nice view of Hyde park and more space. The interior however was still the same, very shabby and the bathroom the same.
All in all we were disappointed with this hotel considering the price. This hotel definitely needs a refurbishment to match the elegance of the other Mandarin Orientals.
Next year we will definitely be returning back to the Langham.
