My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay at The Sumner. Our room was on the fourth floor and looked out over the street, which was nice. (And the street is a quiet one, so we were not bothered by street noise.) The Sumner is impeccably decorated and very clean, and we liked the fact that breakfast was available until 10 AM. The staff was consistently friendly, courteous, and helpful. We would definitely recommend The Sumner to friends and would return there ourselves. One thing my husband, who spent a fair amount of time in the hotel's living room working on his laptop, said could be improved: the Muzak that was being played in the hotel's public areas was so repetitive and boring that it quickly became an annoyance to him. But this problem could be easily remedied.

We have been traveling to London since 1984, and The Sumner is the best hotel we've tried. We'll definitely be back! We recommend the king rooms, which are spacious and comfortable.

We loved this hotel! The location was perfect. The breakfast was excellent. The staff was very friendly and extremely accommodating. Our room was a little noisy as we were at street level and we like the window open. The furniture in our delux room appeared low to the ground as it was of modern design. I would recommend this hotel to everyone I know and would definitely stay here again if I get the chance. Advice for other travelers-if you want a quieter room choose a queen room. It will have a king sized bed (2 twins together) but will be on the back side of the hotel. Many of the restaurants recommended by the hotel were reasonably priced and very good.

Lovely quiet location but very close to the hustle and bustle of town. Excellent room service when we ordered a pot of tea (included in the original price quoted) and a very good English or continental breakfast in the morning. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the facilities in the public area excellent. A very good hotel.

We loved everything about the hotel. The room was immaculate and well appointed, the staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fresh, well stocked and ample. It is in an outstanding location with many great restaurants nearby and its only a block away from the Marble Arch and Hyde Park. Lucas, the night manager was very helpful in every respect. Perhaps best of all the hotel is fairly reasonably priced given the bloated London hotel prices. We intend to stay here again on our next visit.

The Sumner was perfect! We were led to our room, which was in the basement, but you would never know it! The rooom was bright, spacious, no smelly carpets, tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. I felt so "at home". The staff was unfailingly pleasant,gracious, helpful and welcoming. I would stay there again, and would definitely recommend the Sumner.

Lovely, VERY small townhouse hotel on quiet street. Eclectic area, around the corner from Marble Arch, easy walk through Hyde Park to Buckingham Palace and other sightseeing as well as Knightsbridge shopping. Rooms are stylish and well appointed, though a bit small. Fabulous shower and state-of-the-art air conditioning. We would stay again. A good find in an expensive city.

Very helpful personel with great servicelevel. Rooms great. Breakfast so and so. Unfortunately the girl at the reception gave us the wrong price for the cab she arranged for us to go to the airport. The driver wanted 15 Pounds more when arriving at the airport just because we were two persons travelling in the cab, bad excuse. The hotell has excellent location and fullfilled our expectation from what was promised on the homepage.

This hotel, just a couple of blocks from Hyde Park and Marble Arch is marvelous. We arrived very early in the morning (8 am) on check-in day and naturally, our room wasn't ready. We were told noon, and they even offered us breakfast, however, when we popped back in at 9 to get something we'd forgotten in our suitcase, the room was ready. We were delighted. Bathroom was lovely, and room was very clean and well kept. Only (minor) complaint was that we could clearly hear people coughing in the next room at times. We stayed 3 nights, and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Free wi-fi connection throughout the facility worked very well.

Very nice hotel. We don't have actual comparison to other hotels in London but judging from other reviews, this one is exceptionally good for its price. Very friendly staff, nice room, very nice bathroom, breakfast was all right (nothing special, but nothing to complain about). Considering the location ideally suited for tourist trips.

This is a high quality small hotel in a very pleasant part of the capital. Our room was well-decorated, spacious with a very comfortable bed. The room rate was a little higher than I would normally pay for a short city break but we were celebrating a special occasion and it was worthwhile. The breakfasts were decent and perfectly acceptable although perhaps not outstanding. Overall though, we enjoyed our stay and would happily recommend the Sumner to other travellers.

We had a wonderful stay at the Sumner. The staff was accomodating and helpful. There were several very nice touches for a moderately priced hotel: a box of facial tissues in the room, plugs which could be switched from 110 to 220 and which accomodated European and American plugs, double paned windows to keep out the street noise (although the street is relatively quiet for London) and breakfast was great with a choice of scrambled or poached eggs, cooked ham or bacon and beans, cold meats & cheeses, juices, and cereals with yogurt. The room was a comfortable size, but the bathroom was small, though adequate. There were no drawers for folded clothes, although there were cubbies in the closet.

This hotel was the cleanest I have ever stayed in, and the most subtly understated. It is also the quietest I've known in central London. The staff were charming, polite, very helpful and friendly without being over-familiar. The breakfast food quality was good. My only gripes (and they are minor): although we requested a late check-out, reception called us in the morning; and the breakfast selection was sparse, with no option of full English. However I would certainly stay again.

We travelled at the beginning of November 2007. The room at the Sumner was delightfully airy and worth the entrance price... this is the first hotel we have ever stayed in in London where you actually felt you could breathe because of its size. The letdown to us was the breakfast room which was a pokey room in the basement of the hotel with plastic chairs. If you go for the rooms alone though - well worth the visit.
