Great locationfrom kepLiverpool
Getting Better.from penguinitis
This was our third visit to this hotel and our fourth trip to London.
The urgently needed renovations were just completed in a minimialist decor. The rooms are still the same size. Clean and neat!
Front desk staff expects you to believe them when they say there are no other rooms available to upgrade to. The first room, # 505, on the top floor, facing the rear and quiet was fitting for a Gosford Park servant with a twin and a half bed being used as a double and an ottoman as a chair.
We were able to change to another standard room, # 114, , facing the front, noisy, across from the elevator, which had a queen sized bed and one real chair.
The bathroom is large and bright. The amenities are minimal.
The concierge staff is wonderful and can do anything on earth, except get you a better room.
The bar is overwhelmed with cigar smoke and no air circulation. The bar staff prides itself on their motto, "There is no way to get coffee, food or snacks after 11:00 PM, only liquor or beer."
Ignoring all that, just stay at the hotel and send Erol a fabulous concierge my regards.
Sincerely, Howard Newman
GREAT VALUE DELUX HOTEL IN CENTRAL LONDONfrom A TripAdvisor Member
A few minor problems really. had booked a delux room but was allocated a standard due to lack of availability. Standard rooms are very small, have no a/c and very small beds. Having aired my concerns, i was upgraded to a junior suite (which i had to pay £40 extra for) but it was £40 well spent. a major improvment from a standard room. had to wait bout an hour for house keeping to clean the room. But a very spacious and tastefully decorated suite. very large lounge sitting area and huge bathroom. But again no a/c just a portable unit that did not work because it was full to the brim with water. asked reception to come and empty it, but never came.
Apart from the minor service issues, a very pleasant boutique style hotel with good location to west end.
Nice placefrom grogers11
New and zenfrom LucaRuggiero
I was given a newly refurbished room in a pure zen style, much more beautiful than those in classic english style advised in the photo gallery on the site of the hotel.
The conditioning was very efficient, although provided by a portable air conditioner placed near the window. No minibar, but what's the matter?
Very good breakfast, although air conditioned too high.
Good restaurant and good service. Non existent concierge.
Prefer this hotel than the other Hilton in the nearby (the Hilton London Mews).
Overall, a good hotel wonderfully positioned in the heart of Mayfair, one minute away from Piccadilly right in front of Green Park.
Unforrtunately, is not very close to any Wagamama restaurant: what means that I need to walk for twenty minutes before sitting for dinner!
Lovely hotel in an excellent locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Spoilt by lack of air confrom prospero1b
The one big problem is the lack of air conditioning in the bedrooms (although it is installed in the attractive restaurant). This makes it difficult to sleep in the summer months. I was told by the reception staff that it is being progressively introduced and that all suites and deluxe bedrooms will have it by September 2004. I suggest that anyone thinking of staying here checks beforehand.
If it were not for the lack or air conditioning, I would award this hotel four stars. Until then, it deserves only three.
Good value, great locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel has also taken note of the a/c complaints, since we had a mobile a/c unit in our room, and a fan. The breakfast buffet which we had included in our rate was great, but the Friday night dinner buffet (also included) not really that worthwhile.
The location is great - central for everything, but on a quiet street so there is little noise. If you are looking for a central, clean hotel with a good breakfast at a decent rate you could do a lot worse than the Green Park.
A little too oldfrom emerald444
It is not worth the money you pay.
A great experience....from A TripAdvisor Member
The rooms are stylish, clean, spare design. Comfortable king-size beds, great bathrooms, great water pressure. Breakfast was good.
Breakfast was nice and the bar is probably the most comfortable place we found in our entire UK trip to sit and have a drink. It is spacious with comfortable easy chairs and couches. We sat by a window that we opened for fresh air and it felt wonderful to rest our weary bones with no smoke in a comfortable chair. Now the price of that drink is a bit ridiculous. 8 pounds for a glass of white house wine, translates to almost $15 for a glass of house wine!
I was inclined to put up a fuss about that bill, but the following day they won me over with a very nice gesture. Due to high wine price at the bar, we'd bought a nice inexpensive bottle at a small shop, had drunk half the bottle before we left for the day. Upon returning, the bottle was gone. I called and asked where my bottle of wine had disappeared and they delivered a full bottle of much higher priced wine to the room within minutes. Not a terribly expensive gesture, but the kind of gesture which makes you appreciate a place.
BTW, the location here is perfect. Quiet side street, within a block of Green Park, 1 block to Shepherd Street area behind the hotel which had at least 10 restaurant/pub choices for a nice evening, most of which served outside, 1 block to shop where cheap wine and snacks were available. We were able to easily walk to every sight we wanted to see with the sole exception of the London Tower and the Globe which we accessed by boat.
Top Local Tips for London
Dinner in a bookshop? A little known destination is Waterstones - access from Jermyn Street or Piccadilly. Fifth floor bar and restaurant with terrace. Great food and wine and fabulous views across the city
Gatwick Express Book tickets for train (to and from) for a super fast way from Gatwick Airport to London's Victoria Station--leaves every 15 minutes and takes only 30 minutes. Drive time can top 80-90 minutes. We caught a cab (there are lines) from Victoria to the hotel but you can take the tube.
Summer in the city dining Don't be afraid to stop in to off the beaten track eateries--some of our best meals were on the fly. In summer, especially in London, the weather is quite warm during the day. In the evening it cools off and you'll notice that there are tons of people standing outside the pubs having a drink in little roped off areas. This is because inside the pub it is very hot. Eat outside when possible & people watch while you dine in cool comfort.
