Upon arrival the lobby looked quite tidy and clean somewhat smart. I collected my key from a lady behind the desk who seemed quite friendly but acted as if she had quite limited English. Unfortunately you can only get to rooms using the lifts which are basic but yet adequate for what they do.
I stayed in Room 25 in the basement which I was not too worried about. The corridors could do with quite a good lick of paint to tidy them up nothing a good make over could not fix. Upon entering my room I found it to be a good size quite long with two clean looking beds. Towards the end of the room was a little table with lamp and mirror plenty of plug sockets but some seemed risky to use and quite loose. By the table there was a window which could be closed basically just to let some air in and out. The bathroom was clean however the toilet seat was not fastened on correctly and the entrance to the bathroom had a small step which I almost tripped over a few times. The flooring is completely tiled which resulted in it being clod for bear feet to touch. One thing that did concern me was that the deadbolt on the door did not do anything I discovered this by locking it while my friend went out and yet they still managed to get in although the door was supposed to be locked.
I noticed upon reading the visitor information pack that safes where supposed to be in "every room" however mine did not have one. Also WIFI did not connect in my room or always show up so I opted to using my own hotspot much to my own cost. I did not like the quality of breakfast however I did sleep over most of the breakfasts during my week stay.
The beds where quite comfortable and the pillows where appropriate for me. I took one of the pillows off the double bed also in my room and slept fine. However unfortunately some people where doing construction work next door and loud drilling and banging in the morning was common at one point it fell like the roof would fall down.
Overall the hotel did not ruin my London experience and due to its prime Location was extremely easy to get to when the correct tube and transport lines operated. I also noticed and used a cycle hire point just up from the hotel. For what we paid for the hotel it was quite Adequate but could do with a serious makeover and some improvements.
