Staff was very friendly and courteous, Simon at the front desk went the extra mile a number of times. He came out of the hotel to greet us (we didn't see the signage for the hotel) and showed us two different rooms to find us the best one for our needs. The room was smallish for a "family" room, but was very clean and beds were super comfy. The hotel is in one of the nicest areas of London and walking distance to Hyde Park and Kensignton Gardens. Although the hotel is a distance from other major attractions (Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, etc.), it is right across the street is the Glouchester tube station - which is on the main line and can take you directly to most of London's best attractions. Get the rail card - it works for both buses and the tube. There are quite a few restaurants and pubs close by as well as a SPAR grocery store to stock up supplies. FYI - internet is not included (very surprising considering the room rate) but if you look around a lot of pubs/restaurants offer free wifi. Breakfast was pricy @ 15 "quid".
