Quiet, confortable, beautiful and very well located hotel. We just loved staying there.
Staff and clean perfect as well.
From the check in to check out it was an amazing experience, specially about service.
Just finished a 5-night stay at the Como Metropolitan. I was completely surprised at the value this location afforded. It is just off Park Lane and is extremely quiet (I barely heard or saw other guests despite the hotel being booked). Our room was on the 9th floor, had huge windows which let in much natural light. The bed was very comfortable and the room had several lamps & overhead lights, which was great as most hotel rooms are too dark. My only complaint is that the bathroom was on the smaller side (2 people could not use at same time), the tub/shower had a half-glass wall which allowed water to spill out. They also seemed to restrict the water temperature - I could not get a nice hot shower or bath.
The hotel is midway between 2 tube stations: Green Park or Hyde Park Corner, both a 10-minute easy walk. There is also a darling area behind the hotel called Shepherd Square, which felt like old London with several small & excellent restaurants.
Considering the location, comfort, and price - I consider this property a very good value for London. Will definitely stay again.
