I recently stayed for 4 nights in this intimate and sophisticated gem of a hotel during a quickly planned trip to London. From the moment I arrived until I departed, everything met or exceeded my expectations. I suggest you opt for a rate that includes breakfast and wifi as I did - the neighborhood didn't appear to offer much in the way of dining. The breakfasts were delicious as was the generous cookie plate that I ordered each evening after returning from a long day of sight-seeing.
The staff's attentiveness was first-rate, as was the decor and condition of my room. The entire property seemed spotless and I noticed very little wear and tear though I read elsewhere on this site that they're soon to be replacing the carpet in one of the lounges that looks a little tired. The complimentary shoe shine is a great touch. The hotel is located in a relatively quiet pocket near Buckingham palace, which made sleeping easier and a block away from the Victoria subway station for quick access to other locations.
I was traveling solo, but this would be a great hotel for a couple to enjoy.
