It was my first time in London and I was very excited to stay at this hotel given what I've heard and its amazing location right by Hyde Park.
The hotel itself is a "boutique"/small hotel and usually I'm not a fan of those. But the staff here are very friendly and go out of the way to make everything right, yet it's not intrusive. The food was very good and I recommend the restaurant & I also recommend their front desk and the advice they have on places to eat.
The room was amazing. The bed was great and it overlooked a little neighborhood; not exactly the most amazing view...but it wasn't bad. You're in a residential neighborhood afterall. But the bathroom is what made it: heated floors, all marble, built in TV...I loved it. It is touches like this which justify the quite high price.
Roomservice at 2AM was great and they were apologetic that the stove was down, so they couldn't cook the shrimp for the cesar salad....I didn't care and I was completely fine without it. But they not only made the entire order on the house, they personally apologized. I didn't really think it was that big of a problem, but apparently they thought it was and it was pretty nice!
The exercise room is fantastic and I always use them when I'm traveling.....I also found the hotel itself to be really cool and unique. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet....yet it's two or three blocks from the Arch and Hyde Park.
Not a hotel if you're on a budget because the food and drinks can quickly add up and it just isn't cheap. But you get what you pay for and the experience from check-in to check-out is first class. The manager and his staff should be proud!
I will be back.
