Stayed here from April 18th - 20th with my partner to celebrate a birthday occasion. Emailed the hotel previously to ask for one of the recently refurbished rooms facing the courtyard if possible and stated it was a birthday occasion - I received a friendly email back stating my request has been noted and they would arrange complimentary cake for...

Perfect from start to finish. Prior to our arrival I had a conversation with the official Twitter account for the hotel where I jokingly said I look forward to receiving an Easter egg in our room as we stayed on Good Friday; upon arrival not only did I find an Easter egg in our room but we were also upgraded...

The location of the hotel is truly wonderful, we were able to walk everywhere. The entrance and foyer is very impressive and the staff gave us a very warm welcome. The only downside was our room was very dated and tired looking, but have to say it was extremely clean. The Breakfast was wonderful with everything you could wish for.... More

Some friends and I stayed for four nights in early April. All of us were very comfortable with our rooms and the hotel amenities. The room I had was clean, elegant, and well-maintained. The concierge and front desk staff were courteous and helpful. I also enjoyed the buffet breakfast and dinner at Bistro 51. The hotel was well-located for our... More

It is a great hotel. We were a group of seven people (teenagers included) and we all enjoyed our staying there. Big and clean rooms and really friendly staff. Breakfast was excellent. Great location too, we walked everywhere. We will definitely repeat when visiting London again.

Attended last weekend as my brother was completing marathon, had been concerned about a previous trip advisor review citing noise so contacted the hotel prior to visit. Location was amazing and the atmosphere really positive. They really looked after the runners, providing food / beverages and offers for massage in the well being centre.

First class hotel with outstanding service. Will defiinitly stay there again when visiting London. Walking distance to most everything. Very close to Westminster Abby. Great breakfast. Extremely nice people. Outstanding Indian Resturant two doors down. Ask for room facing courtyard if available and away from construction. We did and it was very quite. Wish we could have spent more time... More

This was a great location for our visit to London. Close to many historical sites. Also short walk to Buckingham palace. Beautiful courtyard. Staff very helpful and friendly. Food was good. Our room was spacious and comfortable beds. Sitting area with a great view. Would definitely book this hotel again. Was a very good value.

Nice hotel near many companies. Rooms are small and A/C does not work well, but that could have been due to the weather changing. Staff offered internet package with Exec Floor, but at Checkout it was on the bill. The manager addressed it, but be aware. Overall nice hotel.
