“London-April”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

Hotel was great, chic, friendly, rooms were very clean and the Tube was just less than one block away. So many choices in area for food and dining. The Wifi in the hotel was excellent for business. I would recommend highly for leisure or business.

This is a brillant hotel, so very modern and lovely room sevice, it is in a great part of town and the T.V. in the bath is a great expreince. The style is fantastic and I think that the nespresso coffee machine is excellent.

This was a birthday treat from my sister and it really was a treat. Had a fantastic stay and the staff were so helpful. I had tried to book afternoon tea and for whatever reason this had gone wrong but the manager made up for this at every opportunity with little extras. I loved the way the hotel and been decorated. Would definitely visit here again and would highly recommend.

We stayed here very recently and we're really impressed with this hotel. The staff were really charming and helpful and nothing was too much trouble; we were upgraded because they discovered it was my birthday and then when we discovered that our new room didn't have a bath, they upgraded us again to accommodate this. A complimentary glass of champagne at the bar also went down very well. Rooms are gorgeous, and really we'll appointed. Enormous beds! The bar area is beautifully done, some very clever interior design work. Would definitely stay here again.

Good location! Very convenience to go to central London. Though the restaurant in the basement is not good, but there are lots of small restaurant around that area. The room rate is a little bit high, but it is great if it included the breakfast. One thing I concerned was the room a bit small if I have big luggage. But I definitely will come again.

Great location.
Quiet on the top 5th floor
Bed comfy but king size leaves little room for a closet, tea kettle boils in the closet!
Or room to close and get by the bathroom door. Would prefer more room and less bed!
Staff super helpful with tickets, reservations etc

The hotel is beautiful. The decor is very tasteful. Staff are friendly and helpful. Very useful to have the gadgets in the room explained to us on arrival. Great location as close to tube station. Will use again.
