So much better than I expected

Was apprehensive due to some of the reviews but was really pleasantly surprised. The hotel itself was well kept and in a fantastic area. The room (a twin) was much more spacious than I thought it would be and very comfortable. The only thing that was to fault was the tv which had 5 random channels and would occasionally freeze. Breakfast was well taken care of and the staff worked extremely hard to make sure that everything was in full supply. Overall a very comfortable and relaxing experience.

London getaway

Hotel was okay although badly signed!! Our cabbie couldn't locate it very easily and left us to walk last .2 miles as he was frustrated. Not great after a long day and at 2 in the morning!! Room was in basement which meant no wifi or decent phone signal!! Main problem however wasn't the decoration or tech issues it was the stench of drains!! This room made us retch upon waking it was terrible, so much so we struggled to open a window to breathe some fresh air and using bathroom was a very quick experience!

Problem Corrected

The room we were first given was totally unacceptable......the carpet was filthy, there were water stains on the walls, chipped paint around the window and holes in the wall where the hair dryer once was. We complained and were moved to another room as soon as one became available. That room was much better and the staff were accommodating. The complimentary breakfast was great. The location is excellent being very close to the tube station and in a quiet, safe neighbourhood.

Okay for one night

Room newly refurbished but lacking high standard e.g. room painted very sloppily. Shower heat adjuster not working, stuck on very hot. (Had intended to report this on check-out but the receptionist was less than attentive). The cheapest of sliced bread for breakfast. Fine for a short stay and very convenient off main road location for meeting at Natural History Museum.

Good value for money

The room was small, but nice and clean. Small bed. The room did not have air condition, which can be a problem in the summer. Very small TV, with very few channels. Good location, in a nice area of London. Good value for money.

Quite nice hotel in a quiet and cosy area of London. Close to the tube and restaurants, supermarkets, museums, Harrods etc. The rooms are small but nice. Modern and clean bathrooms. Some of the rooms have air condition. Compared to other 3 + stars hotel in London this seems like good value for money. Would recommend.
