Great property in fantastic location
Stayed for 5 nights - excellent location being directly opposite Kensington Gardens/Hyde Park. Also a Waitrose mini (supermarket chain) directly under the hotel which is convenient for food or other necessities. Room was ample and had a large Kingsize bed. Good modern bathroom, on the small side, but made up for with high quality shower fittings (dedicated shower, and not a shower over bath, which I always appreciate). Only criticism would be the TV reception was grainy which is an odd thing to see these days and the aircon was a little noisy - switched it off in the evenings. Ordered room service a number of evenings and the food was delicious and service fairly quick. Didn't use the restaurant or bar but did take a look and had a nice vibe and looked nice. Was easy walking distance to Paddington (about 15 mins), and easy access to 2 tube stations nearby (both about 5 mins walk) from which central London was just 10-15 mins. A few restaurants in close by streets within 5 mins walk also. All up, I'd certainly stay here again.
