              The attitude of the staff in general was fantastic. The location is amazing, just by Trafalgar Square, and very convenient for most theatres.

              The breakfast room was a bit cramped with tables too close to the buffet.

              The lobby lounge, the Terrace upstairs, the service, the location. Very nice indeed!!! Front Desk staff was very helpful.

              One of the main attractions of the Hotel is the Roof Terrace and during our first night, it was closed due to a private event. That should not happen during Saturdays. big disappointment! I also do not like interior rooms. I am claustrophobic and try to avoid these rooms. Room service selection after 10:30 pm.

              The hotel was clean which is very important to me

              We could not switch the the Air Conditioning unit off as the switch had broken.However,this was fixed after we mentioned it to the front desk.Also,the price for a small box of Pringles from the room bar was scandalous !

              The location

              Our firsttroon smelt awful but wewaste moved quickly to another. I booked this hotel as we were going to the theatre and wouldn't be out until late so thought the roof top bar would be perfect. When we got there we were told it was booked for a private function. We asked for some chicken wings but was told that we were too late. It was 11:01 am and food was only served till 11:00

              A very elegant and sleek city hotel. A real find in London. Will definitely recommend.

              Breakfast - although excellent - was a bit pricey. But other than that, we had an excellent stay.

              Great location and easy to walk to. Various cafes and restaurants around the hotel. Staff is very helpful.

              Internet charges were way too expensive. Time for free WIFI.

              Location is very good--central London and you can walk to most places of interest.

              The hotel is noisy; it seems more interested in catering to corporate events and local traffic for its lobby/bar and rooftop courtyard. Bar and lounge areas were full and noisy during the evening. Front desk does not answer the phone. Interenet connection in rooms is expensive with a very weak signal--should be much better for $22 per day. There is free interenet in the lobby but it is slow and difficult to use in the evening due to crowds and noise. Rooftop terrace is not really accessible to guests; too croweded. The hotel is a boutique hotel and and the affiliation with Hilton appears to be in name only.

              I previously stayed in this Hotel and had problems - the management were more than helpful in sorting these out and compensating for this.

              The price of the drinks in the bar are disgusting!
