5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2005

My wife and i stayed at # 16 for 7 nights in July while visiting our daughter in London. I can't say enough about the hospitality and comfort provided us by the staff. We were there during the bombings and I cannot even imagine the issues we would have had in a Hyatt or other large chain. The staff was very friendly, very helpful and kind of felt like family after several days. They accomodated our every request. The setting is is very residential, do not even blink about not having a restaraunt - there are 25 within a few blocks and all very good. We would definately stay again!
