    • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    This hotel needs to revamp its rooms. The furniture was battered in places and of a poor quality. The linen and carpet was stained in places. The rooms look much nicer in the pictures and no upgrade was offered as a VIP customer. This is a very poor attempt at a boutique hotel in a very nice part of London.

      I really like the location but the hotel and the rooms were not very impressive. However. I think it’s a good value for the money
