    The room was clean, bright, minimalist and with character.

    Not impress by the staff at the lobby as one person is doing too many tasks at the same time, and making costumers wait while such tasks are dealt.

  • Older travelers

    The Location was the best about it. rooms were clean and spacious. a small living room was attached to bed room.

    they don't have fridges or a/c. the elevator is terrible and used for both guists and sirvices. The house keeping don't put soap or champoo if you don't requist. some of the staff are reley unfriendly and you feel they heat you they never smile. I would classify it as 3 stars only and not 4 as classified.

  • Family with children
    4.2

    rude receptionist with poor english, dirt, water pouring from the ceiling, no services ( no wake-up, no adaptors, no mimibars or water in the room)

  • Single
    6.6

    Rooms are small and old , but relatively clean . Best location ever

    I've left some documents in hotel's safe. In order to help me , the staff was really rude , never calling back , and generall made me understand they are not going to help. Had to take 4 hours journey back to take everything myself. Awful

  • Family with children
    3.2

    Staff couldn't care less. Toilets and showers did not work for part of our stay. No room service despite room service menus in room. Cold drinks/ice machines removed. One room freezing, another far too hot. Inadequate bedlinen, threadbare towels - a dreadful experience.

    When we arrived we were told that the double rooms had all been allocated. However, we were upgraded to a suite without any issues or further charges

    It was as expacted for a hotel of this size

  • Couple
    5.4

    We got upgradet from a standard room to a double suite, which was great. The staff did their best.

    The room was a bit old and the reseptionist had to teach us how to use the key because it was a problem with the locker. The elivater was also very old and the door was very difficult to deal with, So I always took the stairs instead even though my room was quite far up.

    Excellent room and location with good value for money

  • Couple
    5.0

    spacious clean room, central to harrods, nice restaurants nearby, good location to tube, hyde park a stones throw away, the building site next door caused us no problems and the noise was not apparent.

    we booked a double room and we were allocated a twin. the said that because we were only staying for 1 night that the only thing they had left, obviously our double room had been given to another guest. they suggested they could push the beds together and zip the mattress'. Not quite a double room if you push the beds together!!! the receptionist was not very accommodating at all.

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    Location and cleanliness of rooms.

    Continental breakfasts were poor and insufficient for a four star hotel. I booked through Booked.net and wasn't told that my card would be debited on booking and that I was unable to cancel the last night of my stay as it was 'nonrefundable'. Hotel staff said they were unable to help me. My room was on the top floor and the water pressure in the shower was terrible- water either ran too hot or freezing cold. My colleague was in a room next door and his shower and his tv didn't work. After reporting this to hotel staff- nothing happened after 4 days. I've stayed at the hotel on several occasions in the past- but I noticed a definite reduction in standards on my most recent visit. My company are now unlikely to use the hotel again.

  • Older travelers

    I didn't like any things during my stay except the location of the hotel.

    1) sttaf was very rude. 2)the facillity was pooring.

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    The location

    Very poorly maintained. Power cuts on different floors, leaking shower meant no shower for 36hrs, leaking radiator, damp carpet

  • Single
    5.4

    The staff who tried their best in a very poorly maintained hotel

    From a long list, very badly maintained bathroom, leaking central heating, power cut that was only on certain floors. Overall very poorly maintained

  • Couple
    4.6

    the location was the only plus in my stay at the hotel

    there are a few things to point out, first of all the hotel is delapidated, there are no duvets in the rooms which is not usual and the covers were not warm. the state of the bathrooms and the water pressure was not good the tv had limited channels with bad reception. the room windows were not double glazed so the rooms were very noisy.

  • Older travelers
    9.0

    The position/location of the hotel is excellent situated near Hyde park, shops, restaurants and the underground.

    The building project next to the hotel will cause some disturbance during the day time until it has progressed from the early stages.
