This hotel is advertised as 4-star. I've been to many hotels of all categories, from 1 to 5 stars in many different countries. This does not align with my understanding of 4-star:
There is no spa, no pool... it's a very solid 3-star with a decent breakfast selection, a staff who went out of their way to be of great service, and a room that is nice, but whoever planned it, did not give it much thought:
-there is no mirror in the main room, but the hair dryer does not work in the bath room (my girlfriend ended up drying her hair looking at the switched off TV set)
-The shower is at the end of a "hallway" in the bathroom - had they turned the shower by 90 degrees, this would have been a spectacular shower.
For all that the hotel definitely is priced too high.
The location is excellent - lots of restaurants of different styles and tastes right around the corner. Tube station not far either. Close to down-town, but not central.
