The hotel is very clean and has modern, stylish decor, but the superior rooms are so small, they look they were literally cut in half. Some of the rooms have bathrooms so tiny, you can barely fit one person in them and taking a shower with the door closed is an exercise in extreme claustrophobia.
Room rates are, I guess, in keeping with London prices and the current value of the pound, but $40 U.S. for internet service? $60 for continental breakfast for two? An honesty bar that charges something like $25 per drink? That is just INSANE.
Staff is friendly and helpful, but also sort of clueless. Can't make recommendations or give information without looking it up. Very few of them are English and/or seem to know the city very well.
