In the spring of 2022 I felt I was in need of some proper big city vibes. I just love the hustle and bustle of places like Tokyo, Paris and London, so I decided to book flights to the latter for a little pre-Easter celebration with my wife. One of the most important things was that the hotel had to be very luxurious with great atmosphere and excellent staff. I had been dreaming about going to the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park for years, so it was time to do something about it.
When I found a good offer from Amex with a complimentary third night, I knew I just had to grab it. Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park is situated in the luxurious neighbourhood of Knightsbridge in London, on the southern edge of the vast Hyde Park, so if you are the kind of person who likes to shop at Harrod’s and all kinds of high-end brand stores or just stroll around, this is the perfect location for you. We stayed at the hotel with our own money, but got a room upgrade as part of our collaboration.
