The location is great - a stone's throw away from Queensway tube station surrounded by restaurants and amenities. And if you are lucky enough, a view over Hyde Park.
Our room was facing an internal car park and buildings which basically means we have a very quiet sleep but the downside is that we missed out on the fantastic view that Hyde Park would provide. The room is on the small side - sufficient for 2 people and 1/2 luggages at best. We were only there for 1 night so we had an overnight bag but it was too cramped for my liking.
The bathroom on the other hand was the main feature of the room. Albeit small, it was designed in a way that maximises space. I love the shower pressure - just perfect.
TV reception is poor which is surprising in London - I would expect a better quality than this. The remote was not cleaned properly and I saw a hair stuck to one of the buttons. Ugh - luckily I had one of the anti-bacterial wipes to get the job done. Housekeeping could be done better in this scenario.
Would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again.
