This place makes me feel like it's probably worth spending a little bit more money on hotel rooms. I stayed here with my wife for my 30th birthday as we had tickets to watch Ryan Adams at the Royal Albert Hall that night. The hotel is very 'London', even though I'm not quite sure what that means or why I've started using inverted commas, but it's hard to imagine it in any other city - I don't know, arriving on a tree lined street into a frosted glass canopy just feels good. I could imagine bumping into Paul Merton or someone in the lobby.
Right, the hotel itself is spotless. We arrived a couple of hours early but the helpful staff organised our room straight away. It's really well decorated and the room, although smallish, was well equipped with a good shower in the wash room. The bed was comfortable but it's true that you can hear the air conditioning system running through the pipes on the first floor by the staircase, so if you are a really light sleeper you might want to avoid those rooms.
There is a row of Boris' bikes right outside the entrance which is a nice way to get around or if you want to ride back to the hotel after taking them out in one of the parks or around the city. South Kensington tube station is only a few minutes walk and is surrounded by a couple of decent pubs and some restaurants. The Royal Albert Hall is a 10 minute walk up the street right opposite Hyde Park.
It's an excellent hotel this.
