I was visiting London for a long week-end in December
The location is pretty much ideal: on the Picadilly line, 15 min walk from Harrods, hyde parks with a lot of places for breakfastand and diner around - no need to book the breakfast in the hotel... you will find much cheaper 100 yards from the hotel
It was also nice to have a garden at the rear of the hotel: our room was at the back and very quiet and comfortable. My only disappointment was the charges for internet - £15.50 for day! That's why I did not give the 5 stars.
Overall it is a good hotel - except for the paid wifi.
