excellent location. Had a 'deluxe'-room. Missing handle in shower with slippery floor. Poor amount of shelves in room. Average windy air-condition - don't use it while sleeping! Reminded us of Design- or Boutique hotelrooms: great to look at - but impratictal overall. Still would recommend this hotel anytime.

Great hotel! Very kind staff, clean and beautiful rooms, very good bathrooms. Its a great hotel overall, suitable for a 5 star hotel but what is really amazing is the location. Unbeatable location to visit London. Direct tube line to Heathrow airport, right in the middle of Mayfair, easy walk to every destination in the centre.

Perfect location

Pros: Everything
Cons: Lighting in room - not bright enough for doing make-up in the evening.
Location: Walking distance to major attractions and excellent restaurants.
Excellent hotel and service - nothing that I can fault.

Hat eine Hervorragende Lage

Das Hotel ist sehr gut gelegen. Man hat am Abend viele gute Restaurants in unmittelbarer Nähe. Der Service im Hotel war auch sehr gut und das Personal sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Für den Spa mussten wir £15.00 bezahlen, dass finde ich persönlich ein wenig unnötig.

Perfekte Lage zentral in London, nähe Greenpark Station. Zimmer war okay (in den Farben grün und braun). Dusche/Bad sehr schö und gepflegt. Food gut bis sehr gut, Servicepersonal beim Frühstück war eher gestresst.
