Lets do positives first... The location was great, easy to find if you know what bus to get and beautiful from the outside. Clean reception and fairly pleasant if slow staff. Bed was comfortable, tv and air con was great and lovely warm shower. Having only paid £123 for two nights in London, it was good value, although as I am a student it was still expensive. two convenience stores right on the door stop, great for snacks and drinks and a free cash point in the lobby. Great and easy bus links right outside also.
We were placed in room in the other building, almost underground so I got no mobile service apart from one bar near the door. The reception staff were slow and had to check if the room was ready even though we arrived 3 hours after the check in time. The room was very small, only just enough room for the double bed, and no windows made it very dark and clinical. The loo was a bit dirty and the seat was broken! We stayed for two nights, the first of which was disturbed by an 8am fire alarm where we went downstairs to find out it was from someone having a shower without the fan on, and we tried to go back to sleep only to be kept up by loud drilling and construction either on or near the hotel. On the second night we also returned to the hotel with heavy bags and i had to go all the way back to reception to reactivate our key card. There was also no plughole in the sink, could have been disastrous with expensive jewelry had I not noticed it! My fiance also tripped and fell over the step to get into the shower, could have been a dreadful accident in a very cramped bathroom. We had people knocking on our door at least 5 times with no voice and we still don't know what this was. There was no place to sit other than the bed, and the tea and coffee facilities were poor. Could have used a mini fridge.
