I stayed here from Feb. 16-20 of 2014. I booked my room through Hotels.com. While the actual room was fine (very small, but from what I understand that is the norm in London).
The decor is old and tacky but if you are out and about in the city all day it's not a problem, which it wasn't for us. I paid approx. $110 CAD per night, and I feel I did not get my moneys worth at all.
Wifi is NOT FREE and very expensive. Around $10 per day. Had to pay 1 GBP to "rent" a power adaptor for my North American devices. Also had to pay 50 pence for them to print my boarding passes. I didn't really have a problem with the actual sum I had to pay for these things, but the concept that they charge you for such a little thing is what bugged me.
The service was very poor. I was given attitude by the front desk staff on multiple occasions.
Overall, I would stay somewhere else and would definitely not be in a hurry back. I had friends stay at the Tune Hotel by Westminster station (very central location) and they paid less. Although their room was very tiny, it did the job and if you are not planning on being in your room all day it shouldn't be a problem.
