10.0 Excellent
Pros:Our second stay and still our favorite hotel in London. Absolutely superior service, stunning decor, fabulous food, and lovely location. We'll be back again and again!
Cons:Rooms are small but adequate. Semi-see-through bathroom door was odd and not ideal for more than 1 person staying in the room.
9.1 Excellent
Pros:I loved the location of the hotel. Very close to South Kensington subway which runs directly to Heathrow. The hotel is also close to the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Natural History museum and not far from Hyde Park. I also loved the staff. Very friendly from Veronica at check-in to the help by the bell staff.
Cons:The room was a little smaller than anticipated and the view from the room was of a building next door...
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Beautiful hotel, excellent staff, great location.
Cons:The twin bed was a little small.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Really good location walking distance to museums and shopping (Harrod's). Staff were great and accommodating. Love the décor in the lobby and public areas. As a female traveler - bath products are Aromatherapy and the hair dryer has good power. I would stay here next time I am in London.
Cons:My room was a little small but still very comfortable and clean.
6.2 Okay
Pros:Ultra quiet room. Good bar. Good location
Cons:Used Kayak to request an early check-in (1 hr) to make a confidential business call. Automessage from hotel "could not commit" to this. Arrived 90 mins early to plead my case, but didn't get access till 10 mins prior to 3pm check-in. In other words, they placed zero priority on this simple ask despite having 4 hrs between departure and check-in. Also requested a room with a desk and accessible outlets, but got a room with no desk at all - and only accessible outlets were under the television, across the room at the head of the bed. Lighting in room was terrible. Very slow service in the restaurant
