Arrived early and checked in without a problem. Welcome desk staff perfect service even through she was a trainee. The room was a great size for the price and for Central London. The hotel itself was located in an ideal location right near a tube station and green park.

I've stayed here a few times with work, and have never been disappointed. Rooms are consistently of a high standard, and some of the higher specification rooms are fantastic. Brand new TVs, nice views and spotlessly clean. The quality of the room service food is much better than most of the other London hotels I've stayed in recently. The bar... More
