The hotel has a fantastic theme inspired by the golden ratio. The room was a decent size and well appointed. One issue - the hallway is extremely loud. People weren't being noisy - noise just carries. The attached restaurant was decent, but the staff there seemed confused most of the time and didn't really seem to speak English. I waited 40 minutes to pay my dinner bill having asked twice.
The location is fantastic for access to Paddington and quick access to Heathrow. But there isn't much else around. If sight seeing is your goal, I would suggest other areas.

Picked this hotel since knowing the location was just right across one of the biggest and beautiful park in London, Hyde Park.
Was greeted nicely and found my room was tiny but bearable. The room was clean and neat.
Closet space was a little tight, hangers was a little tough to work with since the hangers there were not the usual regular hangers you would find in your own closet. Having packing cubes on my trip really helps, since I can just pull the cubes out from my suitcase and placed them nicely on top of the closet shelf.
Managed to hide my main suitcase under the bed, so have little extra space to put things.
Bathroom was tiny but since I travel solo, I don't mind it at all, only feel the water pressure was a little low but it was enough to shower. Sink space a little tight, just enough to put the necessities (toothbrush and paste).
Only downside for me was that I have to re-logged into the internet every time I come back from going out, elevator was kind of slow and a bit of inconvenience to call the reception each time the room temperature got warm to change the setting from radiator to air conditioning and found the housekeeping standard just need a little more consistency.
And like from previous reviews, I did try to eat at their restaurant and try one of their Malaysian menu item on the list, the Hainanese Chicken Rice and it was worth it, for the price and taste. I just wish that would be put on the Room Service menu.

A very short walk from the train station, this hotel was perfect for a one night stay. Clean and pretty spacious, as well as a comfortable bed and pillows. The bathroom was good with a powerful shower head.
