Stayed there for one night. Room price with park view 129 GBP, which is reasonable considering the location and high room quality. I strongly recommend paying the surcharge for a room with a view of Hyde Park and the London Eye. Good service - except that I was first given a key to a room that was impossible to get into - even an employee's master key could not open it.
The downside is exorbitant prices for everything once you are there and can't check out. For example, the room price excludes VAT (oh yes, it is written in the tiniest of print when you book). Breakfast is 18-20 GBP plus service charge - and it was nothing special, for example the orange juice tasted as if it was from concentrate. A colleague of mine stayed at the same hotel for several nights. On the second morning he was so outraged about the breakfast prices that he walked for 10 minutes to get breakfast at a nearby cafe for 5 GBP. Internet 17 GBP for 24 hours.
Dinner at the adjoining Islands restaurant is good and surprisingly reasonably priced.
