Staying in London can be so expensive so it's always a bonus to find a comfy hotel at a decent price. It's very easy to be ripped off but thankfully we felt this hotel offered excellent value. As others have said, it is a bit diddy in its proportions but we have had much smaller and more basic rooms that cost more.
We actually completely missed the main entrance and came in via the mobility access lift on the side road! Good to know it is there for those who can't manage stairs though and it made us giggle.
Our room was comparatively small but with very nice and up to date decor, really quite deluxe in places which we appreciated. Nice linens and towels and the bed was amazing, very comfortable indeed. We were at the back of the building and although our view may have been of the building site next door was really very quiet for central London. Very clean shower room with an excellent rainfall shower which came into its own the morning after our night out on the town!
Some very nice staff here, efficient check-in and the night duty manger Tutui was both delightful and accommodating to a couple of ex-Londoners out on the razz! Thank you Tutui.
Breakfast was relatively basic but fresh, plentiful and exactly what we would expect for the room rates here. A nice atmosphere in the breakfast room with lots of different people off to do different things, we enjoyed it.
The hotel is very well located and just that little nudge outside of the West End to keep its rates reasonable. Lots of transport options including London Overground, London Underground, buses, taxis right where you need them, we mostly just walked. Nice neighbourhood with lots of interesting shops, cafes, restaurants and bars, a cool place to hang out in town and I would say preferable to Earls Court and further West.
We would definitely stay here again for the West End and immediate area. less
