The Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park has one of the most central locations in London, with beautiful views over Hyde Park on one side of the hotel. It also has excellent banqueting facilities, a fashionable bar and two of London's best restaurants. The rooms are extremely comfortable although it is worth paying up for a room with a view of the park. It is an old building (with a rather dated air conditioning unit in our room) and many of the hotel rooms look out onto a rather gloomy internal courtyard while others look onto Knightsbridge (a great sight but also one of London's busier/noisier streets). There is an excellent spa in the basement, with saunas, steam rooms and a jacuzzi pool.
Service was generally good , although the concierge/doormen services were surprisingly hit and miss. Beware that your final bill has little relation to the quoted room rate - the rate quoted does not include VAT (20%) or the 5% service charge on the accommodation. And on top of this the hotel charges for internet (at these room rates it should be included). Other hotels such as The Berkeley (a comparable hotel across the road from the Mandarin) quote their rates including VAT, which I think is the right way to do it.
