This hotel, in total, is very nice. I can't give it 5 stars because a couple of things were missing for me. First, it is in a very nice neighborhood. The bus stops right outside of the hotel. The tube is two blocks away. You will probably have to change lines once if you want to get to the most common tourist areas. However, this is not a big deal. It is right next to a park, there is plenty of shopping, a couple of pubs, two clubs, restaurants, and a Whole Foods. It seemed very safe. As a side note, if you want to go out at night to the tourist areas, you will need to take a night bus if you stay out late or be ready to pay for a taxi. The taxis are very expensive. The hotel itself is very nice. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The bed was great with nice linen. The bathroom was beautiful with a large shower and plenty of lighting. However, there is no free Wi-Fi anywhere in the hotel. It costs 20 GBP per night! Ridiculous!!!! In this day and age, I don’t care if you are a 5 star hotel, that's just poor business. There was also no iron/ironing board in the room. We did find one in the hallway, but it was inconvenient. The concierge was very helpful and gave us tips only a local would know. I would not recommend the Asian restaurant. WAY WAY overpriced for the food. It was nothing special. In fact, I found it to be rather boring food. And, the drinks are very expensive. All in all, I would stay here again. But, I may look for a place with free Wi-Fi on a better tube line.
