We were pleased to find a great deal (including a modest continental breakfast) in such a great location. Staff were friendly and accommodating.
Rooms are tiny, even by London standards. The shower door was difficult to get open after showering, which would be problematic for solo travelers but my husband and I were able to rescue each other whenever we got stuck.
Fabulous large flat screen TV with lots of channels
Housekeeping was irregular
The biggest problem was that the hotel is undergoing renovation and it is noisy. We were on the same floor and right next door to two rooms that were being renovated. While work was restricted to 8am to 5pm on weekdays and 10am to 1pm on Saturday, that made it difficult to nap or relax during the day. Plus the workers often seemed to hang around after 5pm making noise. We suspect some of them may have been camping out and partying in the rooms that were being renovated because the noise often went on late into the night
Another frustration was that our room's renovations were not quite complete, meaning that while there was a space for a minifrig, it was missing. We were able to get ice upon request from the front desk staff, but cultural differences with respect to what constitutes a glass of ice were clearly in evidence
Once the renovations are complete, this will be a great place to stay
