    The hotel offers everything for a stay during a city break. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The rooms are somewhat older in terms of furnishings, but everything is very clean. The location is central and close to the subway. The booked breakfast was rich and tasty. I'm sure everyone will find something here. Also the hotel bar and the restaurant offer nice drinks and food, if you want to end the evening here.

    At the breakfast buffet we had to wait a little longer for a free table. But then we was compensated again by the big choice at the buffet.

    The staff was very polite and courteous. Super location, beautiful lobby, many restaurants, late check out, the food in the room was super delicious!

    We had a room by the train tracks, you could hear the trains through the windows. For security reasons, the windows could not be opened or tilted. Minibar was empty.

    The bed was comfortable and the staff was very friendly. we also had a nice view of london. The 24H service was great. We could order something to eat at 2 o'clock in the morning :)

    The windows could not be opened for safety reasons (8th floor). We had a super ventilation system, though.

    Beautiful location not far from the city and Kensington Gardens, museums etc., view from the window into the city, otherwise everything was OK

    Breakfast was very expensive.
