What a great find!
My son and I are here for some business - but also Wimbledon, Ashes, "time in London" etc etc. The Sumner Hotel has been a wonderful find.
Major London streets (e.g. Oxford) are so busy - yet only 3 streets back, The Sumner is in a quiet yet well equipped neighbourhood. Pubs, food/wine shops, lots of different restaurants are literally within a few minutes walk - and the Marble Arch tube station is less than 5 minutes away.
Hyde Park is a similar distance away - making for lots of wonderful evening walks in the UK soft summer sunshine that continues on toward 10pm.
Apart from morning tea and coffee delivered whenever you ask (and quickly) - there's no room service - but that's about all that is missing (and really who needs it with such a well equipped neighbourhood). There is air conditioning, a fridge, and daily cooked and continental breakfast included as part of the package. The rooms are a good size for this close to the city - and kept spotlessly clean.
Staff couldn't be more helpful, and there's a real atmosphere staying in the 1820's Georgian terrace building. The Georgian feel is preserved - but no amenities are lacking.
The location alone is worth the price - but throw in the ambience, facilities, helpful service etc and you're on a winner.
Only improvement suggestion - arc up the (free) wifi to make it faster and more reliable. It was fine - but could have been better.
This is not a place for the kids - but if you're visiting London on business, or to soak it all up, it's hard to imagine a better hotel in this price range.
