Just spent 8 nights in London at this hotel and thought it was really charming! We were in a deluxe King room, so it was very spacious and comfortable. My two teenagers were in a smaller room with a King bed (2 twins pushed together) so I understand the reviews complaining about the smaller rooms. Still overall, for the price we paid---it was definitely worth it. The lobby and tea lounge area is beautiful. Really nice fitness room in the basement---surprising how roomy it was for this hotel. Rooms were very clean and bathrooms nice, with great water pressure. Beds were comfortable but the pillows were very flat (down pillows do that---I wish they had newer ones)Turndown evening bed service was wonderful with the chocolates that they leave! :) My biggest complaint was that the wifi (although was complimentary) didn't work well---it was off and on the whole time we were there. Also, our sink in the bathroom was constantly plugged and that was REALLY gross and annoying---we tried to get some maintenance on it but they never sent anyone up to fix it. Had nice in room coffee machine that I used for hot chocolate and tea. Nice that the hotel was in walking distance to many of the museums and tube stop. Lots of great restaurants nearby and close to a grocery store (but not a Mark & Spencers :( ). Wish we could have tried a breakfast while we were there in the hotel, but our time change and schedule (catching trains and such) kept us going or we were too tired and didn't make the cut off time for breakfast. We did however, get some delicious coffee around the corner from Cafe Nero and pick up a few Brioches at a French bakery just around the corner!! I would come back to this hotel----but only if the weather was warmer! Unfortunately for us, Europe was having a cold front sweeping across during our Spring break! :(( Oh well, still enjoyed visiting and seeing the sights.
