The location is excellent, just a stone's throw away from Holborn station and within walking distance to major landmarks or districts. I liked that it's also nested in a cozy neighborhood with supermarkets, banks and other amenities.
Service was okay, generally friendly but not warm. I was more disappointed by the size of the room! I stayed in a studio suite and it felt tiny to me though I guess this is London. The corridors felt very narrow though. Their toilet bowl was also not very well designed...the handle for some reason is close to the lid, and you can't flush properly without having to slam the lid shut. I also agree that there was a distinct (stuffy) scent that I picked up along the corridor and in my room as well.
Would have appreciated bottled water to be provided as well. Furnishing was dated and if given a modern update and smarter layout, perhaps even the smaller rooms would feel more comfortable.More
