We checked into the hotel with no problems at all, staff were very friendly and obliging. It's quite a walk from London Bridge Station but the location is fab. The little square that sits outside the hotel contains a wealth of cute bars and has a really cosmopolitan feel to it.
The hotel room itself felt pretty exposed with a huge window which for obvious reasons I wasn't able to open. As a result of no natural air, the AC system is whirring away constantly.
The room was clean and well set out with a clever space for a desk. If this was a working trip this would be an ideal space howver this space was just wasted and there was no mirror or way to use the space other than as a working area.
The bathroom was excellent, shower only but it was a very clean, double shower which cannot be faulted.
The room felt slightly dated, a total opposite to the slick interior of the rest of the hotel. The common areas, lifts etc are very eclectic feeling. There were some odd pictures on the wall and very mismatched. Some pictures had literally been thrown up and weren't hung properly, resulting in a very amateur attempt at interior design.
Wasn't sure about eating in the restaurant, have heard some really mixed reviews recently and whilst I'm always keen to make my own decisons, a chat with a local thesp confirmed it wasn't really a priority to try it out. Perhaps next time if I'm not having a special trip. I found the 70's menu mismatched and confusing. It wouldn't be easy to pick a meal.
Overall this is a good hotel for a break, it's not a hotel for a special night away but I would definitely stay there again.
