If we'd stayed in the first room we were allocated, we wouldn't have awarded four stars and we'd have been yearning for a Premier Inn. Tiny, shower but no bath despite all the marble, view of a wall across a roof.
But we asked the super-helpful lady on reception if she had something else available, and she did! So we moved along the designer-gloomy corridors to a generously sized room with a fantastic bathroom - marble, again, including a bath, fantastic power shower and toasty underfloor heating. Comfortable bed, space for the bags, tea and coffee facilities etc (but no iron & ironing board).
The location is great, two tube stations in near proximity (yes you can hear the rumble occasionally but it's not terrible and they don't run all night), handy for the parks and all kinds of restaurants on your doorstep. Which is lucky if you like meat, because the restaurant is vegetarian and we got the impression it doesn't servce alocoholic drinks either. Breakfast can include some meat, but I didn't fancy the "turkey bacon" on offer so went with the croissants and toast.
We had a great stay, but if you plan to spend any time in the room, make some enquiries on the room size when you book.
