The position of this hotel is great - right on Piccadilly so just a walk to the shops, Hyde Park, Apsley House etc. We were a little stunned at the dark bedroom we were in. The window looked out onto a roof structure for a smoking room and let in very little light. The room itself was nicely fitted out and the bed was extremely comfortable. We were staying here for a dinner dance and the food and service were excellent although the bar area lacked soul.
There was a good choice of different foods for breakfast and you could order more from the waiting staff - the banana and chocolate pancakes were well worth getting fat for. We stayed for 2 nights B&B and the service at breakfast was a bit hit and miss - one day terrible (Sunday) and the next good (Monday).
You need to use your room card in the lift as pressing the buttons alone wont get you anywhere. Our card failed to let us in the room twice and the reception staff (who were usually helpful) blamed keeping it close to a mobile phone. I accepted this the first time but the second time I hadn't taken my mobile out with me so?? Not sure I would return here.
