Stayed for one night with my husband. We have eaten at Nahm quite a few times and loved it so we thought we would try a stay at the hotel as soon as we had an excuse.
We arrived before published check in time. This was not a problem for the receptionist, they offered to sort us out a room early but we intended to go out for lunch any way. We had a quick coffee to warm up and headed out. When we returned they informed us that our room had been up graded to a studio suite. The room was lovely. Great bed and quality bedding, a good size seating area and a little dressing area. The bathroom had the most powerful shower I have ever experienced. Really liked the toiletries - aromatherapy type smell to them. Nespresso coffee machine with choice of coffee but no tea making facilities in the room.
We dined at Nahm in the evening. The food was amazing and the service excellent. In fact all of the staff we met were friendly and efficient.
The hotel is in a great location for shops and restaurants and only short walk from Hyde Park Corner tube station. There is an interesting pub round the corner also if you fancy something like that. It's called the Grenadier and in the middle of a row of mews houses.
Breakfast was also very good. Fast service and plenty of choice. My husband selected boiled eggs which were slightly underdone for his liking but still a very good breakfast over all. Great choice of preserves for toast. Great fresh juices.
I would definitely stay here again. I think it might be my favourite London stay so far!
