I have been traveling to London on a monthly basis for many years now and though I spend much time in the South Kensington area was unfamiliar with this hotel until a friend who lives close by recommended that I try it. My daughter & I were both in London for both business purposes and for pleasure with our friends there. This hotel was such a wonderful haven for both of us and in a perfect location. It is very close to the tube, a taxi queue, to some of our favourite restaurants and to many of our friends. The rooms are immaculate, comfortable and so beautifully done that we were both delighted to return there each evening. Each room is in a different scheme with it's color/swatch board outside the door in the hall but all are bright and cheerful - contemporary yet traditional and very spacious. Quite unlike many small hotels in London where the rooms are tiny. The bathrooms are large and the beds are heavenly. The restaurant and common areas are equally fun and inviting and a perfect place to meet a business associate or friend for a cup of tea or a drink. The staff are all more than willing to assist with any need and make on feel that is all they wish to be doing. And Simon Gallic, the general manager, is amazing. He could not be more involved with each guest, their needs, their thoughts and making their stay the best possible. It is truly on par with the very expensive, well known ones, yet this is a far greater value less money.
