I stayed here recently for a couple of nights for a work conference which was the other side of Hyde Park. My room was clean, a decent size for London and had free WIFI which is always a bonus for work! Staff were friendly and breakfast was plentiful and good quality. My only negative comment would have been dinner. The... More

Cleanliness was good. I had room... More

I came alone in April to take a look at London before my husband accepted an expat offer.

It turned out to be PERFECT. Check in... More

The staff are helpful and pleasant, especially the breaskfast and resteraunt staff. The food in the resteraunt is wondeful. It's all cooked fresh and with... More

Tube station 2 blocks away and on the Central Line for all the good destinations. Room was small, but comfortable and very clean. Bathroom well maintained. All of the staff I encountered were courteous and friendly. Dined in the restaurant; it was fine, but the food was standard hotel restaurant fare. Breakfast included in my room rate served in the...

An excellent hotel in a lovely area for walking in Hyde Park and visiting Harrods and the Royal Albert Hall. The room was ready early. It was very comfortable and the service was excellent. It was good value for money and the breakfast was superb.
