We had a clean, comfortable room, facing the park (ask for that!) and the best shower in the world! The location is great - within walking distance of many of London's attractions. We also had a complete English breakfast every morning. The "headmaster" of the buffet is rather intimidating, but the servers are all attentive and very nice. My big problem was the lack of Internet service. You could only use the WiFi in the lobby, provided it was working, which it wasn't most of the time. It was extremely inconvenient for me to conduct business without it, and the only other option was to work at the Internet cafe around the corner. The other problem was the concierge desk, which is staffed by people who couldn't answer any of my questions regarding things they should be familiar with, like how to use the public transportation, museum hours, etc. So, I'd definitely recommend this hotel for tourists who have good guide books or know their way around the city. For the business traveler, or someone who is taking their first trip to the city, find a hotel with reliable Internet service, and a more helpful concierge staff.
