              Ok I have stayed in a number of London 4* hotels during the past 7 months, this is the first time I will give a review. In my opnion this is the only hotel that lived upto expectation, infact exceeded it. The hotel as an air of quality, the room I had was a fair size like you could walk around the room without bumping into things. The bathroom was clean fresh and a sizeable shower. I think the hotel rooms have been recently refurbished and it's a job well done.. I got a good rate from Booked.net so all in all very pleased.. One gripe which will be in the complaint section but minor..

              As with many Hotels they charge too much for Internet access, stayed in another hotel night afterwards in London as my plans changed and free internet... I have a dongle so I rarely pay for internet access only if I can't get a strong signal ... So stop charging and it would be 10/10 for me

              Club rooms is very noisy. Very nice refurbished but they do forgot proper windows noise isolation All noise from the street inside the room

              Just the right facilities for a weekend break. No fuss in the room, everything we needed and nothing we didn'T. Great location, clean, tidy, reasonable price.

              Beware of the description "double/twin room" My party consisted of one married couple (myself and my wife) and two guests who were prepared to share a room, but not a bed.  I booked two double/twin rooms and, in accordance with the instructions on the Booked.net website, stipulated one double and one twin.  This was made very clear in the booking process. The hotel had only double rooms available on the day.  They took the line that this was my fault / Booked.net's fault because the room configuration was not guaranteed. This strikes me as a particularly daft way to sell hotel rooms. After half an hour of increasingly vigorous argument, we squeezed an acceptable solution of two unrefurbished single rooms out of their reluctant receptionist. So we were satisfied in the end, but the hotel's lack of apology, their failure to admit any part in the mistake, and their unwillingness to come up with a solution, meant our weekend in London got off to a very unpleasant start.

              The helpfullness of the staff. The recently refurbished rooms. The location. The rate was good, but it was a special offer for this weekend.

              Rooms are small, but this is typical of London.

              I liked the location, and the neighborhood. I thought the room was a bit overpriced for it's quality. Breakfast was good, but not excellent. Staff was friendly and helpful, but could do with better English communication skills. Overall the experience was moderate, if considering the price, standard.

              The breakfast ridiculously overpriced. Considering the menu, which was a standard continental. I could have gotten that quality food in a restaurant for under 10 quid.

              Location in South Kensington was good, close to tube and Hyde Park.

              This hotel was ok but not 4 star standard in my opinion. Would be ok for short business trip but not for long weekend of relaxation. Reception area looks tired, as do the staff uniforms. Newly renovated room, clean but very small (compared with others I have stayed in London) and we were in a supposedly larger one (would hate to see a standard room)! Tiny wardrobe, average quality bed linen & pillows, airconditioning kept switching off during the night, really badly insulated so we could hear the people in the room above thundering around all times of day and night, and doors closing along the hallway. No minibar in the room (which I consider poor for a supposedly 4 star hotel), food was appalling quality (both breakfast and limited room service menu). Power shower in the bathroom had no pressure. Also had to pay for wifi. Unfortunately, have stayed in far nicer hotels in London through Booked.net, and won't be going back to this one.

              Nothing except for the location

              the room is very small, actually everything in the room is very small. The bed is so small and the pillows and bed aren't comfortable at all. The curtain is very light which I think is awful because during day time the sun goes straight through the curtains into the room and hence not sleep well.

              Clean fresh rooms with comfortable beds - no major luxuries in our Club Queen room but comfortable and nicely located.

              When we first checked in the room we had been allocated was on 4th floor and air condttioning ubits were right outside window which my wife didn't like as she is a light sleeper and the hum would have driven her mad. I rang reception and they found us another room on ground floor facing into a quiet mews and were really helpful about resolving situatioin.

              Thought it expensive
