I got a good price for a Deluxe Junior Suite. It was a pretty good size for a London room, though it was less "deluxe" and more "junior": big enough to swing a cat in, but not big enough for four to sit and play parlour games like charades or Twister. You get the idea...
The hotel is pleasant and luxurious in all respects and is very handy for the Serpentine Gallery as well as Kensington High Street with all its shops. But where the hotel really excells is in the quality of service given by its staff. Bar staff in particular were wonderfully kind and considerate. My impression is that the hotel places great emphasis on staff training (I even overheard some discuss the topic).
What I do not understand is why the bar and restaurant were so devoid of patrons! May be it was because it was the holidays. In any case, the quietness at the bar was the only thing I didn't like about it. I would also have preferred a sofa rather than two chairs in my suite, but I didn't express this preference to the staff.
A nice final touch was that I was driven to Paddington Station in the hotel's sporty limo kind of car.
Next time I'm gonna ask for a sofa.
