              10.0

              It was the perfect location and lived up to its sterling reputation. The staff did everything we needed to make the trip perfect. We loved this hotel!

            • Family with children
              10.0

              Excellent customer relations from the moment that we arrived. Great location to St. James Park and Red Bus Tours for an easy (family) overview of the city. We made reservations online with the concierge before our arrival. They were prompt in helping us accomplish this so that when we arrived all reservations had been handled. Dinner reservations hard to make at the nicer restaurants upon arrival - recommend setting them up beforehand.

            • Family with children
              9.6

              Pleasant staff. Extremely comfortable bed. Proximity to London sights... Buckingham Palace, St. James' Park, National Gallery as well as shopping in Regent Street, Oxford Street and Bond Street.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              Aside from the luxury of the hotel, it was in the perfect location.

              Service and hotel atmosphere

              Maybe one detail : AC control was not working very well in one of the 2 rooms booked

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              Prompt attention of staff

              Some confusion on the lighting system in the room.

            • Older travelers
              9.4

              Hotel design and great customer service as standard

              Bathroom toiletories are not to my taste

            • Group of friends
              9.2

              Quality modern room with a great rain shower. The beds were luxurious.

              Light switch was confusing. Need separate switch for the bathroom.

            • Single
              9.6

              Excellent staff, nice location, food is very good and your questions will be always happily answered them.

              It might be difficult to find access to the hotel in busy days or when there is an important event close by.

              Location is very good. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The Spa is really good and comfortable. Food is great. All services work really good, the lift, the A/C, service room great.

              Very comfortable, excellent location for our trip to the theatre.

              The receptionist strangely could not organise my prefered newspaper for the next morning, quite strange as the hotel actually offers complimentary ones. The cost of breakfast is ridiculous so we ate out.

              The staff were attentive and well-trained; the rooms were nicely done but slightly lacking in shelf/hanging space; the bar and tea room were great and the Brasserie was excellent.

              It was not cheap.

              The location of the hotel is excellent; the staff was friendly and helpful. Even if the hotel is quite expensive it´s good value for money considering the location.

              The restaurant and bar were both closed and therefore the ambiance in the hotel was terrible
