    Very good

    Espresso maker in the room. Nice amenities. Good "rain" shower. Great location in a nice neighborhood, but close to Hyde Park, 5 min. walk to Harrod's. Very close to 3 tube stops. Nice gym with new equipment.

    No ice machines. No iron/ironing board in room. Internet connection is included, but very spotty - goes in and out.

    The attentive staff made us feel so welcome and the absolute luxury of our surroundings were the first things i noticed. Anything we requested was no problem. Complete quiet at night was very much a bonus. Loved the jasmine tea with the turn-down service! Lovely touch. Will definitely stay again.

    Prices for food and drinks were very expensive.

    Fabulous

    Two employees were extremely friendly and helpful: both Vincent and Marc. Both should be commended. rooms were very nice and comfortable

    I believe all rooms should include the base breakfast and have option to upgrade in the menu. If you are going to give / advertise a price leader than make it for real and not watered down....or advertise why it is less money. We were told at first it was included and then after eating told there was a charge... cleaning forgot to replace wash clothes and hand lotion. tell guests how lights work up front (leaving the card in) leave notation how your showers / baths work Terrible that one cannot not get any refund back if you need to cancel

    All staff in the hotel are very welcoming, friendly and could not do enough for us. They made us feel very welcome. The hotel is located in a lovely area with a variety of restaurants and coffee shops within 2 minutes walk from the front door. The room was very clean and comfortable. After reading a number of reviews on the hotel I was concerned about the room size - but I was delighted when I walked through the door. I genuinely cannot fault it in anyway. Having stayed in a lot of hotels in London during business trips this was certainly a breath of fresh air and was exactly the type of hotel we were looking for. Tube station is less than 5 minutes walk away so is an ideal location for getting around London.

    We stayed with my daughter the night before her wedding and the staff could not have been more interested, helpful, attentive and appropriate. Bouquet and buttonholes were kept in a fridge for us, bags stored both before and after, absolutely great

    Fabulous

    The hotel is very well located, the staff really helpful and professional , the lounges the bar and the food are amazing . Alessandro the barman is a real artist at what he does! If only for tasting one of his cocktails or getting advices from him how to choose your drinks , the hotel is worth the stay... The gym is a real one!

    The room was so small, the bathtub slippery , the breakfast not included + 6pounds to bring it up to the room and it was really minimal! The minibar fridge was loud ,
