Stayed here earlier on in the year for the better halves birthday. Okay, so don't get me wrong the hotel was okay and the location is fantastic, but i'm not sure if this hotel give it's 'vibe' for the area it's in.

The hotel bar is one of my favourite bars in london and is an excellent bar, constantly packed with an eclectic mix of people, but let down by slow service. The hotel itself is in a great location- the rooms vary massively depending on which suite or room you chose- from very small rooms that are overpriced for the room... More

Lovely hotel in a great location. Moments away from Green Park tube station and local shops. There is a pleasant atmosphere in the hotel lobby and the staff are very helpful and attentive. We were given a room upgrade due to the room not being quite ready, this was given with no fuss or request from us. Good business facilities... More

Nice hotel, nice rooms (modern), a very nice coctail bar in the lounge. Great location (one block from Picadilly and Green Parke Tube station) with a decent price (... in London and if you book early). Lacks space for business meetings (the coctail bar is always packed) so it is not such a good hotel if you are in a... More

This hotel needs work. The rooms are ok but not could be much nicer. The lifts are a joke. Stay on the top floor and you may as well walk down as it is so much faster. The staff are ok but many have an air of arrogance about them - not sure why! The breakfast host particularly was just... More
