          • Location and staff accomodating, handy for London, good price. Free wifi in the lobby is another bonus and loved the fish tank in reception. Beds are really comfortable, to drink fresh juice, coffee and tea.

            All other hotels provide up to date tv', the room is very small and the fitted carpet smell of dust.

          • The location was fantastic, the hotel was clean and comfortable and the food was good, the staff at reception on the first night were lovely. Bed was really comfy, the bar on the ground floor was gorgeous too and breakfast was only just sufficient.

            The rooms to the street are incredible loud, tv channel selection poor.

          • Location to central London, hotel was clean and the prices were cheap We had a very good. The room interior was modern and tasteful, the Staff were friendly and helpful, high ceilings and nice furniture gave a touch of luxury. The bar was real cool and the breakfast was plain and was just fruit.

            The money spent was not worth and girl on 2nd night at reception was rude and should not be in hospitality. The bathroom was too tiny and pillows were very uncomfortable.

          • Location is just great, in a beautiful street that near to tube and some restaurants, pricevalue wise the worst hotel ever and would not recommend to anyone. And is, the lobby and waiting area are big, spacious and inviting, friendly staff Reception open 24 hours a day Easy access to central London, the bed is clean and excellent. Breakfast is not bad.

            I liked the contemporary update to the old building and very loud road noise all night as no double glazing. Room is very small and and The receptionist NEVER come to help us to carry our many luggage.

          • The location is good, great place and amazing surroundings to meet business partners, the bed albeit clean linen smelt of stale urine.

            The staff unfortunately are the downfall of this hotel and the rooms are tiny poorly equipted and represent extremely average value for money.
