We only stayed one night, for London it is in one of the less busy streets, yet well located. The Ritz and Langans restaurant within easy walking distance. Boris bicycles right opposite the entrance if you fancy cycling around London. The hotel is of a good standard, the room was ok, bathroom also ok, the shower is located within the bath, with a screen (never my favourite)
The buffet breakfast was the usual average standard, so the fired eggs having been sitting around for a while are hard, the rest just luke warm. It's a shame that most hotels are going this way with breakfast. Food should be hot and an egg station for freshly cooked produce should be implemented in my view.
We went out for the night and returned to the hotel around midnight, the bar would not accept cash and only had one person working behind it, we turned up just as about 20 others did and gave up after waiting for about 20 minutes to be served
London prices do mean you don't get the same standard for your money as else where in the UK. It is a good hotel but could improve on service levels, that said I would return and the reception staff were pleasant and helpful.
