This has become my usual place to stay in London. Conveniently located midway between two tube stations (and an easy, eight minute walk from each), the rooms are comfortable and quiet. The informal lobby café and bar provide wonderful service, a nice buffet breakfast, decent hamburgers and excellent latte. There is also a large variety of restaurants (as well as supermarkets and Boots drugstores) surrounding the nearby tube rations. Even with all this, the best part is the extremely gracious and professional front desk staff that really seems to want to help. Requests for things such as extra towels and replacing a non-functioning light bulb were responded to very quickly.
That said, this is not a hotel for people who want cutting edge decor, a romantic atmosphere, an elegant neighborhood, a fancy restaurant or fashionable shops. The hotel exterior is unattractive and uninviting, the rooms are a little dated, the mattress was mildly uncomfortable and while my room was clean, one of the telephones was not.
