    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!

    Rooms are small but adequate. Semi-see-through bathroom door was odd and not ideal for more than 1 person staying in the room.

    Fantastic Location but small room

    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.

    The room was a little smaller than anticipated and the view from the room was of a building next door...

    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.

    My room was a little small but still very comfortable and clean.

    Not set up for business travelers, anyone elso who

    Ultra quiet room. Good bar. Good location

    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
