The hotel is situated near Hyde Park, and not very far from Notting Hill and Oxford Street, so it is a central hotel. The staff was always friendly, and the reception is open 24-7. The room we got was real tiny, but most hotel rooms in big cities are, so it was no surprise really. The nearest bus stop and tube station Lancaster gate was only about 200 m. away, so that was really good. The traffic was not very busy on the street and we had our window to the backyard, so no problems with noise.
The bed was really hard, and I had difficulties getting used to it in the beginning, pillows were nice and soft on the other hand. Bathroom was vety small, but clean and tidy, except for when we got new towels the last day - one of them had orange stains on it.
Breakfast was a disaster - variety was good, but the quality of food was poor. When we opened our eggs they were a little black inside, even though they were warm. Either they were overboiled - or even worse - boiled another day and microwaved warm. I am otherwise very fond of eggs, but couldn't finish this one. When we got there the first morning I found crumbs on the plate where the coffemug was. The fruit was also really old, so we didn't dare eat them. The last day they were out of butter and didn't seem eager to help us at all find something we liked to put on our toasts. Sure it is nice when breakfast is included in the price, but I would have prefered fresh and clean food.
