        • Family with children
          8.8

          The central location and friendliness of the staff in both the hotel and Bank restaurant made our visit special.

          Not having a hairdrier with a long enough cable to be able to see in a mirror while drying my hair.

        • Couple
          10.0

          I enjoyed the ambiance, cleanliness and the spacious rooms compared to other similar hotels in that area of central London.

        • Family with children
          6.6

          The location is good.

          No free wifi, just a business center with three computers for all guests.

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          Our room smelled of cigarette smoke. The pillows were hard and the bed was uncomfortable. Away from the main lobby area the hotel looked tired and worn. At breakfast the serving staff could barely understand English. The buffet breakfast was dry and warm, not hot. Not impressed at all.

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          Service and location

          Some very noisy patrons late at night. Booked twin and ended up with doube bed. Price of breakfast prohibitive.

        • Couple
          8.8

          Good location in a quiet area but very close to Buckingham Palace and St James Station. Good, spacious room, good shower.

          The bed wasn't good. Squeaky at any move. Also, there is a charge to use the internet, not cheap. In my opinion it is ridiculous, we are in 2012, not 1998 anymore. Even cheap hotels have internet acces included.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Very friendly and helpful staff. Superbly comfortable beds. Excellent choice at breakfast - and fresh too.

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          Very friendly service from all the staff. A haven from the pouring rain outside with good afternoon teas.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          good location

          noisy fan outside window obscured glass on window room small and overpriced

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          The staff was friendly and helpful. We loved washing and drying our clothes in our room before we left for Paris. We also enjoyed eating quick meals in the kitchen.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          Excellent location. A wonderful new bed. Good reception area.

          The hotel is getting a bit tired and the rooms could do with an up grade. New beds are fantastic and I hope are an indication of better upgrades ahead.

        • Family with children
          9.6

          Room appointments and bathroom was very nice and spacious; extras like aroma therapy and chocolates were nice; lobby and entertaining area was fun.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Excellent location - short walk from St James Park tube. Comfortable and quiet. Reasonable value for money.

          Bathroom was a little tired. Room was small but adequate given the price paid.

        • Family with children
          9.2

          It is a great, stylish hotel in a perfect location. Only a few minutes walking distance to Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abby and Big Ben. Also close to St. James Tube Station. The service was great, the rooms are quiet big, nicely equipped and comfortable. I can only recommend this place. I will stay there again on my visit to London

          The staff was very polite but don't trust them with directions. I chose to took the train from Heathrow airport and contacted the hotel via e- mail in advance. They sent me wrong directions! I also got wrong information about booking a taxi back to the airport. Their lack of knowledge was disappointing but if you do your homework in advance it does not matter. I would still recommend this place. They are renovating right now but there was no disturbance.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          Location is wonderful- just a short walk to Buckingham Palace. Actually got to sleep as it was quiet except for morning school children- for a city hotel great! Staff very nice and helpful! So clean and great service.- Loved it and only wished we had booked it for more of the stay but will next time!
