We arrived, for our three night stay, after an early flight to drop our bags and received the usual warm welcome and offer of complimentary drinks. The good news was the room was available for an early check-in.
The hotel has a modern look and feel, but it has a calm atmosphere. The location is perfectly quiet and that’s why we choose to return. The transport links are good; a few minute’s walk from Hyde Park Corner for buses and tube. Please be aware that Hyde Park Corner tube station doesn't have a down escalator nor does it have a lift. There are only stairs available until the elevator renavation is completed.
The rooms are a good size and very comfortable. There is a large double bed, two arm chairs with a small table and a desk. The bathroom feels large with a bath and shower. At each side of the bed there are gadgets to control the lights, air conditioning and other essentials. The bed is really comfortable.
As time is always short in London we haven’t tried the restaurant for breakfast or dinner.
We checked out and left the luggage to collect later.
On departure, as the weather was wet and the extra case was heavy with shopping, we decided to get a car to the airport. The concierge arranged this at short notice and in no time we were on our way.
This is a very nice hotel with very professional staff and we will certainly return again.
