Stayed here as part of a deal. The hotel is easiest to get to from Old St underground station. If you are going out in central London, cabs may be better transport than the tube as many changes are needed to get to the major hotspots. The rooms were clean and the bathroom nice.
If you have time the pool/saunas are good to relax in. A bit to warm to do serious swimming but nice fun. Be prepared to queue/wait for the lifts! There are only 2 lifts to service ~6 floors, each with ~70 odd rooms.
At breakfast I strongly advise going to the adjoining hotel building. The breakfast room there was empty when we went, compared to the main restaurant with a queue to be seated for the buffet breakfast.
