“Very comfortable stay, lived up to reviews”
Reviewed 6 February 2012

I travel to London for business and i usually stay in Kensington, but as the wife was accompanying me, i decided to stay closer to Oxford street. We stayed for a week and the stay was excellent.
The first 3 days were in the King size room in the basement and the next 4 days were in a Deluxe rooms. Both were in the front section of the hotel and we did not have any problem with noise as some of the other reviewers have experienced. The king room is actually bigger than the deluxe room and has a bigger TV, the only downside is that the bathroom and natural light in the deluxe rooms are much better. I also had a look at the normal rooms at the back of the top floors and they were really nice and clean as well.
Service was impeccable, breakfast was good and whenever we need TV or coffee, it was brought to our room. Hats off to Rohit, the friendly hotel manager who made sure all our needs wee looked after. Any request was promptly organised and it took a lot of stress out of the trip. He passed on helpful information as to where to shop and where to eat.
I definitely will be returning to this hotel on my next visit.

I had to go to London for business and by chance the meeting location was 20min from The Sumner. As I stayed there for one night in spring 2011, I decided to try it for a full week. That was a great choice ! I arrived on Sunday 22 January and stayed 6 nights. On my arrival after couple flights and a red eye flight, I hoped that my room would have been available earlier. This wasn't the case but the very nice receptionist was able to give me a similar room. That made a big difference for my first day. The whole stay was nice. The breakfast was good and the staff taking care of it excellent. As the Sumner is built from an old house, it's not perfect for stairs and some noise but if you can forget these tiny inconvenient that's an excellent choice for London. The area is quiet and close from everything. When I say close, it's close. You are minutes walking distances from subway, buses (tourist and normal), park, restaurants of all types, movie theatre, pharmacy etc. Hayes parks is close too and I suggest to go there all year. If you want to shop you are close to Oxford street that is also connected to Regent street. It was my first time in London at this time of the year and I'll return for sure and at the same hotel. Yes the weather isn't the best but if you want to see big landmarks, museum and shop that's a good time. I didn't want to give this hotel a too high mark, so I would have more chance that they had vacancies for my next trip :)

We hope that next time there will be a safe in the room.
