This is a convenient location if your target visit in London is in the Trafalgar Square vicinity. It is a short walk to Covent Garden (I go there for the Apple Store, among others) and as I run, it's a great location as it's literally a few steps from the Thames. It's a great run towards the Parliament then cross the bridge towards the London Eye, and back and run straight through St. James' Park, Buckingham Palace, and then Hyde Park.
For transport, Charing Cross is just around the corner and of course there are many many places to eat around the hotel. Notable will be the Sherlock Holmes pub, or you can have a light Italian lunch in Prezzo, or some wine and oysters in Mossimo's across the hotel.
The hotel itself is compact and the rooms are on the small side. The staff are friendly and can speak a number of languages but I surmised they cater more to Spanish-speaking clientele. Breakfast is standard fare and the coffee is fresh.
I did have a problem with the taxi once, son if you ask the concierge for a taxi, double check and make sure you have enough time to change your mode of transport.
