You've got to keep things in perspective in places like London.
The hotel scene is very problematic. It's expensive to stay in the centre and standards are below par (kind of like Paris).
We've had several disappointing stays in London recently and this was the first good experience in a while. We will definitely return.
The room (#20) was small but superb, very quiet.
The staff was very attentive, and as you can tell from the way they respond to criticisms on this website, they really care about getting it right.
The location is AMAZING, the best part of the hotel.
We were unlucky with weather and got caught in the rain well after checking out, and returned and worked in the lobby, which is very comfortable with free tea and coffee.
The one bad thing: the person on the phone gave me wrong walking directions from Baker Street so that was frustrating, but otherwise it was a great stay.
Will definitely return.
