Good Hotel Guide Review

There’s an intimate feel at the Bejerano family’s sprawling, characterful hotel, which occupies seven Georgian town houses and two mews homes close to Hyde Park. ‘Well-thought-through details’ and ‘unfailingly helpful staff’ make guests feel looked after. An art history lesson awaits in the corridors, which are lined with the work of emerging British artists. The ‘comprehensively equipped bedrooms’ have a stylish blend of original features, cutting-edge technology and boldly coloured furnishings. ‘Splendid’ modern British dishes (perhaps salt beef croquettes, horseradish mayonnaise) are served in the ‘excellent’ brasserie. Cocktails appear at the push of a button in the elegant martini ‘library’; opt for afternoon tea, with a glass of bubbly, in the champagne lounge. (Underground: Marble Arch). The Arch is a member of Pride of Britain Hotels.

Guest comments

'The warm welcome included greetings from the general manager. The public rooms were attractive, shiny, done with humour: quirky sculptures and works of art. Background music (groan) in most rooms, but the beautifully furnished, well-stocked library seemed to have escaped this intrusion. In our junior suite, the decor was confusing, but it had three plain walls with some well-chosen art work, and plain, atractive curtains. It was was light,airy, slightly narrow. Four windows overlooking the street meant there was a little traffic noise. Our bed was comfortable. The large bathroom was well stocked. Lighting was good, storage carefully thought out. A televison at the foot of the bath had a handset guaranteed to be submersible. Many high-tech things impressed my husband. I was more impressed by the inclusive soft drinks mini-bar, the Nespresso machine, the teapot, the milk in the fridge. Breakfast was exceedingly good. Staff were obliging and professional throughout.
