We stayed here for a last minute bank holiday getaway. Got to say the hotel itself is very beautiful and extremely clean. Reception staff were friendly and we were allowed to check in early...

The only part I would criticise is the room size... We upgraded for a larger room & even though we did that as I still didn't feel it was worth the money. The room was very clean but awful view. Bed was comfy but I just didn't get the wow factor...

Wouldn't put me off staying again but I think it's a lot to pay.

Arrived here at 2pm and we we're checked into our room at 2:30pm very happy as the room wasn't supposed to be ready until 3pm - lovely room huge bed (the comfiest bed I have ever slept in) .. Beautiful bathroom with bath rain shower plus hand held shower .. Great breakfast (continental) cereals fresh crossants pan au chocolates fresh fruit etc. with the option to pay for full English we was very happy with what was on offer for continental .. Lovely breakfast room .. GREAT location 2 or 3 grocery shops on the street 2 Greek restaurants and a little pub .. Around the corner is Hyde park plenty of bus stops ( download the free app Citymapper such a great app for using bus's no need to use trains or underground and you get to see a lot more of london on the bus journeys ) petrol station around the corner with free cash withdraw machine and a waitrose Very sad to leave london as me and my friend has a wonderful 4 nights at blakemore and visiting the sites of london -- PERFECT!

My boyfriend surprised me with a night at what I thought was going to be a beautiful hotel. We arrived at check in time but were told our room was not ready, not a problem, we were told to wait in the lobby. 30 minutes had gone by it would of been polite for someone to comment on the waiting time or offer us a drink. A few other people were also not happy and waiting in the lobby and in my opinion the reception did not seem to organise or handle the situation very well. Our room was upgraded but I did not see the value of the price of the room, nice with a large bed but a few spots were dirty (inside the telephone, the window sills) wouldn't bother me too much usually but for the price of the room I think it's only fair to expect certain things. A shame that we didn't enjoy

My husband & I spent 4 evenings in a recently renovated club room and found it immaculate with a very comfortable bed and all necessary commodities. We especially enjoyed the full English breakfast buffet included in the summer special. Bus transportation to central London and access to Kensington Palace and Hyde Park were within a 10 minute walk.

Room Tip: Simply ask for a quiet room away from street and elevator noise.

When we booked the hotel online it seemed well situated and spacy! omg! No it wasn't!!

Even if the area is very nice and there is also a coffe - terrace, rooms are awful! They gave us a room on the ground floor next to an automatic door, we couldn't sleep during the night as the door was slamming all the time. An of course the same door was our alarm clock in the morning..The room was so small i wanted to start laughing when i saw it! We had booked this hotel as its' rooms seemed spacious at the online photos.
Hotel service was very good but we were so disappointed from the room that i can only think of it as a bad hotel experience.. No value for money.

Room Tip: If you book this hotel make sure you ask for a room NOT NEAR elevator or Floor Automatic Door.

Dear Nina,

Our hotel is well situated just 3 min. walk to Hyde Park and the rooms are very spacious compared to the other hotels in the area. We do have different higher category of room types available to book which are more spacious and comfortable. On your next visit to London, please call us and we will book an executive room or a Junior Suite for you to make your stay more comfortable.

Close to Hyde Park and to both Notting Hill and Kensington this hotel offers great rooms recently renovated, with excellent finishing. Maybe the bathroom was a little small but superbly furnished.
A nice lobby with an elegant bar complete the picture. It is recommendable to take the English breakfast because it is very tasty.

Nice room, modern decor and a modern monsoon shower. Friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable bed. Having said that I have the following criticisms: the heating was hit and miss, aircon was LOUD, narrow corridors, LOUD closing doors, patchy wifi coverage (with none on Sunday morning of my stay), only continental breakfast was included, no toothbrush & toothpaste in the bathroom (compared to other 4 star hotels I have stayed at), lifts were highly temperamental and check out was at 11am rather than industry standard 12. They did have late check out for uk£50 till 3pm. Also for a 4 star hotel I was surprised not to see stationary in the room. All in all not bad, have stayed in better and have stayed in worse.
