The hotel is ideally placed for the Albert Hall, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens (all a 10 minute walk); the Natural History and V A museums (20 mins) and South Kensington and Gloucester Road tube stations (also 20 mins).The Décor is very swish, very modern and very comfortable. My room was very clean with very efficient and quiet air-conditioning and the MOST COMFORTABLE bed I have ever slept in.
Adequate space in the wardrobe but no drawer space in the whole room - most odd.
The bathroom was well stocked and the shower powerful, but oh dear, the shower cubicle at 26" square, way too small.
The instructions for the room safe detailed in the room brochure are for a 4 pin code with a reset button but the safe operates with a 6 pin code and no reset button.
Would I stay in this hotel again - most definitely if matched with a roomier shower cubicle.
