We wanted a central hotel as we were guests at a Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace and the next day were going to the Chelsea Flower Show. The Sumner was an excellent choice. Although it is only a quick walk to Marble Arch and Oxford Street, it is in a very quiet residential street. The staff were extremely helpful and happy to bring a tray of tea/coffee with chocolate teacakes (included in the price of the room), when requested. The breakfast was very good indeed, with plenty of choice. The room was very nice, with a giant bed and an excellent shower in the ensuite. The price was good for Central London and well worth it. We would definitely go again.

The hotel is in a great location, close to Oxford Street and Marble Arch tube station. Its clean and simply decorated, nice room and super comfy bed. Very quiet too. The lobby/living room is certainly an oasis in the very hectic, crowded city. The staff was lovely and helpful, quite gracious and professional even before I arrived, as they corresponded with me promptly and effectively. They certainly didn't disappoint in any of their assistance. You also get good wireless access. Breakfast was delightful, differing slightly every morning, and served with a smile. 
Minor thing was the temperature; too hot!! Which was easily altered by changing the airco and opening a window. This is the only negative point about the hotel. 
I wholeheartedly recommend The Sumner and I will be soon coming back.
Enjoy!

We stayed in Sumner once and liked it very much. You fell like in a luxury hotel but it's very small and private. The breakfast was absolutely wonderful and very english with all these beans and toasts and eggs. The room was very spacious. As it was our honeymoon we found a bottle of vine in our room one night, and it pleased us a lot.

On my third stay in The Sumner me and my wife have once more had 3 relaxing and peaceful nights.The rooms in the Sumner are of reasonable size, have high ceilings and are well equipped ( there is even 1 european standard power outlet !).The wifi is really fast and there is a good choice of food for breakfast.The staff (especially at reception) are very helpful and friendly.There is no doubt we will return on our next stay in London.I recommend booking a room at the rear for the quietness and make sure you have a nice drink (and great food) at The Portman just at the corner.

Room Tip: I recommend booking a room at the rear for the guaranteed quietness even in the morning.If you get u...

This was our third visit ot the hotel. We stayed for a week and were fortunate: the fickle London weather favoured us and we did not experience a single day of rain. Our repeat visit to the hotel speaks for itself. We again liked accommodation, service and amenities. A detail we haven't mentioned before: the proximity to Hyde Park. There is nothing we like better than a walk through the Park on a sunny Spring morning, prefereably on a Sunday.
We also recommend the restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the Hotel, most within walking distance. Some are located in Upper Berkeley street itself, others in Baker Street and nearby.
A suggestion: improvemnt to the soundproofing system of the rooms.

Room Tip: Ground floor top of the range.
