We just spent a night at Great John Street and had a wonderful time. We booked on the day so got a quite reasonable late rate. We stayed in their most basic room - the baby grand - not basic at all in fact. All the facilities you could want and beautifully decorated.
What really made the room better than most other hotel rooms I have stayed in, though, was the split level layout, with the bathroom on a mezzanine level. This means that the room itself is larger than usual and that the bathroom is enormous by hotel standards, with separate little wet shower room and toilet cubicle. The shower was a joy, especially as the weather was extremely hot.
The staff were unfailingly friendly, polite and helpful. Special thanks to the person who made our sandwiches at midnight - I know it's his job, but he was so helpful and charming and took real trouble over serving us.
Generally a place to recommend and to which to return. If nothing else, we would like to enjoy the roof terrace and hot tub.
