I visited this hotel in November 2023. The rooms are spacious and clean, and a variety of cooking utensils are provided. It is also a great location for exploring Hyde Park and several museums. The hotel staff were very friendly upon check-in, and even though check-in was a little late due to a miscommunication, I was impressed with how they tried to take the best care of their customers. It made my first trip to London pleasant.

The room was spacious and large enough, unlike other hotels in London. The location is good for those who prefer quiet peaceful areas, but it's not close to the main attractions. I would recommend it for large families and groups!
