Alongside the hotel's superb location, it also has a reputation that precedes it, with guests calling the hotel a 'slice of Paradise' in London and raving over the high level of service and welcoming atmosphere. This hotel may be one of London's pricier options, but you definitely get what you pay for. Rooms seem to be good across the board, but light sleepers may prefer a room situated near the back of the hotel, which tends to be quieter, and if you can afford to push the boat out for a suite room, it's definitely worth it for the added extras.
