I ended up finding this aparthotel because I was looking to fit 3 adults in one room and most standard London hotels only fit 2 adults max. Our room was clean and spacious, though the room with the shower and sink was extremely tiny. If the toilet was in the same room, it probably would've seemed a bit bigger, but it was convenient having the toilet separated since we had multiple people sharing the bathroom, so we were okay with the small bathroom. I found the pull out coach mattress to be surprisingly comfortable! It was also well designed. The coach pulls out into two twin sized beds, so if you only need to sleep one person there, you can leave one side as a coach seat and the other as a mattress.
It took us a little while to figure out that you have to leave your key card in a slot by the door to use the lights (which is a great eco friendly feature!).
The service was good and all the workers we encountered were helpful and friendly. There's also free coffee in the lobby, which the coffee drinking members of my family said was very good.
The location was central and right near the Embankment tube stop (and a short walk to the Leicester Square stop). It took us about an hour to get here from Heathrow by Tube (with one transfer). The Strand is also right near the hotel, which features a lot of places to grab a quick bite to eat. We even walked to Buckingham Palace and Harrods (Harrods was admittedly a long walk, but doable).
I would definitely stay here again while in London. The only downside is that the free wifi in the room is very slow. It was almost a throwback to dial up internet days!
