This hotel is located only a minute or 2 from the tube station (in zone 1), it was clean, with friendly and efficient service. Upon arrival, we were given warm cookies and able to check into our room immediately, in spite of being there 5 hours ahead of the normal arrival time.
We opted for room only, as I only eat a small amount for breakfast. There are lots of cafe chains nearby- eat, pret a manger, etc. More difficult to find somewhere open for breakfast on a Sunday, but after a 5 minute search, found a starbucks. Just 2 mins from the hotel is what seems to be an independent cafe called 'The Kitchen', which serves full English Breakfast for c£7 before 11am.
We made use of the Mac in the room, especially for finding good restaurants open on a Sunday (there are plenty, but we were looking for something specific), and also had a drink in the roof top bar, with its excellent view of tower bridge.
For anyone looking for a good base in London, I'd recommend this hotel, unless you're after a small, personal hotel with its own character.
