My stay at the Pentagon was an amaising experience. There was a fantastic party atmosphere and comfortable seating in the bar area. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the breakfast was just perfect offering a large choice of both hot and cold foods

My bedroom felt like I was sleeping on the M25 it was very noisy and I managed 2 hours sleep before waking up to the traffic again. I will say apart from that the bed was very comfy and large and the shower was amazing. Sort the noise out and you'd have a far higher score

It took far longer than it should have on the phone to reception to persuade the staff to come change it. 2. There was construction underway next to the hotel beginning at...
