This is NOT a great hotel for a week's sightseeing in London. It IS a great hotel for an overnight stay if going to an event nearby. I would have given it 5/5 (based on value for money) except there were a few problems - noisy plumbing for example. The reason for rating it IS the value for money. £49 pounds bed and breakfast for two - and I have eaten worse breakfasts in better class hotels. The room was clean, the shower powerful and the beds comfortable. What more do you need for an overnight stay? Amazing value! We found everyone helpful.
