Stayed here for almost a week with family as part of tour of England; found the lobby space well kempt and well appointed, but the room itself was less satisfying. It had an odd odor to it and was quite noisy because of a nearby generator. The closet was fairly small; there was not much drawer space for storing clothing. The room was quite dark. Staff supplied another lamp, but it only marginally improved the darkness - reading was impossible. The bed, however was comfortable. The bathroom, though very small and awkwardly arranged (no room to stand beside the tub, for instance) was clean. Food at breakfast was fine and there was a substantial variety; service at breakfast was excellent but at other times while visiting the restaurant / bar one could sit for extremely long periods and not be able to attract the attention of the staff. Service by the reception personnel was spotty - some helpful, others less.
The location is fine; one can walk to the Victoria / Albert Museum, the Museum of Natural History, and Harrods; plus there are a variety of inexpensive cafe's nearby.
