Dining

Forum Room Restaurant
This restaurant is bright, airy and spacious which can take large group of people. It is modern looking with two buffets and a small bar, where you can relax while having morning beverages, Continental or full English breakfast. It provides lunches for me

Weekend in London

Location was excellent and the tube station was very close. Perhaps the staff should have warned that the room was handicap equipped, it would have saved a funny incident with emergency pulling cord. The high room rate should include some sort of breakfast. Bagle with cream cheese, muffin, and OJ would do just fine.

Good overall but not great value for money

Location is great, plenty of restaurants nearby, good service/staff, but price was not the best compared to the room etc. I am a price conscious customer and found another international chain hotel to be better value for money. The parking was quite expensive as well as the internet which just makes you feel ripped off.

Great location

Very big, modern hotel. Maybe a bit clinical in style. If you are arriving at Heathrow and are interested in visiting the big Museums this place is ideal. Tube from Heathrow to Gloucester Road on Picadilly line took 45 minutes and cost 3 pounds. Lots of room on tube as we were going opposite direction to rush hour traffic. Hotel literally 2 minutes walk from Gloucester road tube station. Is about 5 minute walk from V & A, NHM, etc. Restaurant nice and informal, reasonably priced and delivered by friendly staff. For variety there are a number of places just round the corner.. plus a Waitrose Supermarket, all in the Gloucester Road station complex.

Europe vacation

Location is fantastic for accessing all of London Understandably rooms are generally small, however the hotel is dated, and they ask for a reasonable price so one may expect a little more. Have chosen to try another place on return trip through London although would recommend provided the price was right.

Great spot in London and very close to the the tube station. Some really great restaurants close by and very easy to get to all the major attractions. Hotel was clean and the service was excellent from all staff. Rooms are quite small but beds were very comfortable. Very pleasant stay.

Dont expect to have a warm shower, you'll be lucky to even have a shower as the water pressure cant even make it to the hand held shower.

The hotel staff were very friendly

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was nice - standard double hotel room! Modern enough and clean which is the most important thing. From the outside the hotel isn't the most attractive but the inside is fine. The bar is a bit old fashioned so we didn't spend much time there. Overall I would recommend it - good location and okay price.
