I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights whilst I was on business in London. The first night I was in a room at the front of the building. It was small, hot and the window only opened approx 6 inches. There was also a lot of noise from the road. After the first night I asked to move to a rear bedroom which was better. However, there was still a lot of noise from other guests because this hotel is in an old building and therefore is not purpose built. In addition to all this I found the manager helpful and pleasant when I asked to move rooms but the check in desk girls when I arrived were officious and the breakfast staff gave the impression that they could not be bothered. Also the coffee out of the coffee machine was disgusting and the scrambled egg was well over cooked.
The cost of the hotel was £165 per night. I know that this was for the location but if it was out of London and I was paying for it myself £40 per night would have been what it was worth. I will never stay at is hotel again and it is a shame because overall I like the Holiday Inn Express chain.
