The location is really good, if you plan to stay close to the Royal Gallery and Buckingham Palace. Near to the gardens around for leisurely walks or early morning runs. The stuff was friendly.
Upon check-in the stuff tried to charm me and said they’ve upgraded me. The room was bigger, smelled of old tobacco and mold and had absolutely no view. I had to wait more than 30 minutes to get the room I had booked. It was refurbished not too Long ago. However, it was not flawless, e.g. there were some

I loved the closeness to where I wanted to be.
Some of the breakfast and dinner staff seemed a little grumpy didn’t really engage in conversation which as I was on my own would have been nice.

Loved the staff. We really appreciated one concierge in particular. I’m not sure of his name but he left for a holiday in Spain on September 27. He couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. The location was excellent.

Located in a perfect area from which to start to explore London, with an elegant old-world feel. The staff was very attentive and helpful and there was lots of attention to detail. The food, drink and entertainment were very good as well. While small, the bedroom and bath were nicely appointed.
Our room could have had some brighter lighting - was a bit dark when it was overcast outside. Our room was nicely done but it felt quite small and cramped due to the amount of furniture in the room. Perhaps using smaller scale furniture pieces would help.

I was entirely happy with almost everything . Singer was lovely.
When we returned on Sunday early evening our room hadn’t been cleaned. We were given two fresh towels to use to get ready to go out. When we returned late evening the bathroom and hospitality tray hadn’t been updated to replace items used. On one occasion a doorman reprimanded a staff member in full view of the bar. One bar staff who did Gin tasting event was not at all friendly. Breakfast wasn’t amazing ( cooked) ..but just ok.
