Beautiful boutique hotel situated in South Kensington right across from the super easy to use London tube. This hotel has been superbly renovated and finished to a very high standard. The bed was very comfortable and we slept so soundly except the sun rises around 4.30am and I thought we had slept in! Lovely upholstered bedhead in a deep purple, feather cushions and a black and white bathroom added up to a luxurious package. Fridge is stocked with non-alcoholic beverages that you are free to consume without charge. Good free wifi is available. We did not have breakfast at the hotel preferring the better priced option at the amazing Pret coffee shop across the road (also with free wifi). The London tube is very easy for a novice to use and it's best to purchase an Oyster card that you can reload anytime. Tube trains are colour coded with their handrails and are very efficient. If only every city had this train system we wouldn't need cars! A tube station is situated just across from the hotel and we felt very safe using it even late at night. Hotel staff are very knowledgeable and are very helpful. Each bathroom comes with a rubber ducky you can take as a souvenir. This hotel offers luxury and the comforts of home and is so well located. The hotel considers the small differences that make it an excellent place to lay your head at night. My only negative is that a good sized mirror near a power point should be standard to accommodate female guests who need to use a hairdryer or straightener. There is a small one but it needs to be bigger and hung on the wall. Overall, an excellent high quality boutique hotel - would definitely stay again.
