Recently stayed for a week, it being the second time that I have stayed here. The hotel is superb; very high standard of decor, excpetionally friendly, professional and welcoming staff, very comfy beds and stylish bathrooms. Little design touches in the rooms and the public areas make this hotel standout from others. Being relatively new, the general standard remains high. Food and service in the restaurant are excellent having dined for both breakfast and dinner. Others have commented that the rooms are small, which they perhaps are, but no smaller than most other central London hotels. If staying for a night or two the superior rooms are fine, but any longer I would suggest a deluxe or studio deluxe, unless you don't intend to spend much time in the room. Overall, this is perhaps my favourite hotel in London, also helps that it is in a good location in South Kensington and right next to the tube. Just note that the Drawing Room gets quite busy at weekends with people booking afternoon tea, but is much quieter during the week and a seat easy to find at the spare of the moment.
