I stayed here for one night during a weekend city break in London with my husband. The location is perfect – right in the heart of the museum district and very convenient for the tube, plus local bars, cafes, and restaurants. It's also handy for a walk in Hyde Park. The decor of the hotel is very stylish, and all brand new. I had expected a small room – this is London after all – but our room was very small indeed. Not that this mattered as we were out and about all day and it was simply somewhere to sleep. The bathroom was lovely, and actually a decent size compared to the room, and there are upscale toiletries and thoughtful touches such as free soft drinks from the mini bar. The staff are extremely polite and friendly. There is a nice bar/restaurant in the basement, and the lounge area appeared to be a pleasant place to have afternoon tea. All in all this is a lovely hotel, but if you are planning to spend time relaxing in your room I might advise upgrading to a superior room.
