This hotel is awesome, such n unassuming building from the outside by then you walk in and it's a different world. The decor is so unusual but so cool. It's modern but still in keeping with the older style of the building.
The staff were so welcoming and friendly. We were staying there as a surprise for my birthday that my husband had organised and they obviously knew all about it and made that much more effort which was a really nice touch. They took a real interest in us and what we were doing.
The rooms were comfortable and again had the funky decor and great style. Rooms weren't massive but they didn't need to be. The bathroom was luxurious and there were loads of great touches throughout.
Location was great, right by the tube station, really close to the museums and about 15 minute walk from Harrods.
I absolutely loved this hotel, it was amazing, I only wished we had stayed there longer.
