It is a beautiful hotel, but some attention to the finer details would make the stay better. In majority of London hotels (of this standard) there would be doormen. There were not any. Even at late hours during the night, there still wasn’t anyone at the entrance. There’s no hand wash in the bathroom, WiFi is good, but the tv isn’t able to connect to the apps properly. Overall the stay was nice, not sure we’d return though.

Great hotel in fantastic location. Close to most visitor attractions, and business hub, whilst being slightly tucked away from the frenetic buzz of London.
