“"Fine" stay in London”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

This was a test stay for me to see if it would be suitable for business travelers in my company. I would describe it as a "fine" stay. The WiFi just didn't work in the rooms, so if you're traveling for business, this is not the place to go. The inside of the the hotel, from lobby to corridors to the rooms, seemed dark, even with all the lights on, it seemed very dimly lit. The best part of the stay is the bathroom. 5 stars for that, brand new and laid out well. My room faced Portman Street and I had a slight view of Portman Square. The street noise kept me awake all through the night, even with ear plugs. I had to turn the TV on to drown the street noise (I've stayed at a hotel the next corner down facing the same street and not had a problem with street noise at night). I paid for a rate that included the first night's dinner and breakfast both mornings. I had an issue with the restaurant reconciling this, eventually they got it right, but it was a little bothersome to have to worry about. Upon check out, there was an issue settling my bill and the clerk charged my card twice, then voided one. It turned out fine on my statement, but delayed my departure to the airport. All in all it's fine, but it would not be my first choice upon staying in the future.

Dear Guest,

That's a real shame that we didn't quite live up to your expectations, please accept my sincerest apologies..

You are quite right to point out that small niggles when you are traveling are an inconvenienced.

The FO Manager and her team are looking into this matter now so thank you so much for bringing this matter to our attention.

I would be delighted to discuss your colleagues requirements in more detail to understand your needs better.

Kindest regards

James

This property is clean and modern and made for a very comfortable four day stay. The rooms are a bit compact - to be expected for London - but stylishly decorated, and the bathroom is newly updated and spotless. The breakfast was standard, even if the service was a bit slow. I had one dinner at Indigo and the food was really good.

This hotel's best asset is its location, just a block off of Oxford street and some of its best shopping. Its really easily accessible for public transportation and there are plenty of places to eat in the area. I'd certainly stay here again!

Room Tip: I had a room on the top floor and it appeared to have less street noise. A colleague had a basement...

The staff were attentive and the hotel was very clean and well kept. As a lone female traveller I didn't like being given a room that was so close to the main lobby, I felt quite exposed in room G04, literally the first room you come to from the entrance. I'm normally not bothered by noise at night, but even turning off my own air-con system, it was like trying to sleep on an aircraft - very noisy part of the hotel, filled with a constant drone. Usually the flash of a smoke detector in a hotel room is ignorable - but in such a tiny room it was inescapable, especially with a large mirror on one wall. It was impossible to use the full length mirror on the wardrobe door - the door kept wanting to close itself - this would have been nice as I was getting ready to go to a black tie event.

Room's okay but breakfast is truly horrible in a dining room which stinks of paint and distemper with a polythene floor. I suspect it would be closed on food hygiene ground but the food itself is horrible congealed and unappetizing and even the tea is cold.

If you decide to stay here discount the value of the breakfast from the inclusive price, and avoid the Bryanston room like the plague!

A very nice, comfortable Hotel. A very pleasant way to start our night out in London! Staff were friendly, courteous and extremely helpful. The decor was very nice in most areas, sort of chic understated elegance. The hotel in general and the room were very clean and tidy. Check-in was swift and was a pleasant experience, The check-in staff member greeted my wife with birthday wishes, which was a nice touch. Their famous cookies were warm and very tasty! The bed was very comfortable, the room was quiet and we slept very well. The air conditioning, when on, was capable and quiet. We had booked a double room and it was the perfect size for a couple for one or two nights, any longer, or more than one suitcase would be difficult. We were given an in-room surprise as the hotel knew we were celebrating my wife's birthday and it was lovely: some 'Happy Birthday' sparkly sprinkles on the bed and the writing desk. These were accompanied by mint chocolates, a fruit platter and a nice bottle of Pinot Noir. Breakfast was tasty with a good selection for the buffet, continental (pastries, cheeses, cold meats etc.), cereals, juices, good hot selection (bacon, sausages - both pork and halal chicken, beans , scrambled eggs....). The hotel were happy to keep our luggage all day as requested, allowing us the freedom to wander London unencumbered.

Four of us spent 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. We were lucky to be upgraded to 2 of the 5 suites so felt very special indeed!! A warm welcome with a warm choccy chip cookie - nice touch. Room was over two levels, consisting of a lower floor lounge with cloakroom and upper mezzanine bedroom with en suite - and all mod cons thrown in. Beautiful furnishings and lovely bathroom with complimentary toiletries (of course). Excellent location and right on Oxford St, Marble Arch & Hyde Park. Thank you all for a lovely stay x
