Well situated

The room I stayed in was the Buckingham Suite due to a room entry error. And was absolutely stunning. The first room I had was a single room and was adequate for a single traveller,clean and we'll appointed However the suite was incredible. Both rooms had high ceilings and period features well decorated. The hotel itself is ideally situated for exploring London.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Pack lightly..as dragging even a small case around Oxford street is a nightmare.

Room too hot

When I arrived the room was incredibly hot and I could not switch of the readiator as the Thermostat was broken and lying in front of the radiator. Also there was free standing air conditionor unit on full blast. When I complained I was told that was the only room. Though they evently switched of the raditor from outside the room the room was still hot and I did not sleep well.

Steer Clear at ALL COSTS

I am not a picky traveler when on business, I consider a hotel room a place to sleep. Unfortunately, this was not anywhere near a hotel room. The "double" room size was the same as a prison cell (10'x6') and I could not even fit my bag in the room. The bathroom was so small the door didn't open in to it - you had to open it half way and slide around it and then close it to get into the bathroom. Of the five days they could have cleaned the room, they cleaned it twice, but not including new linens, and the second time they left the deadbolt out, meaning my door was open all day. The staff did not speak English and could not print out a receipt for my stay and there was no regular TV. There were some arabic stations, so a couple of times there were American movies with Arabic sub-titles. I have stayed in London over 50 times, and this was by far the worst experience. They claim to be a 4 star, but according to the criteria would not pass for a 2 star.
