Stayed for a night in a single room (on the fourth floor, at the front). Be aware: when they say a single room, they aren't kidding. It was nicely appointed (all the usual Radisson Blu bits and bobs including magazines in the room - and the fish channel! to which I am oddly devoted) and had a comfortable bed. However, it was very small and, being in the roof, had a relatively low ceiling. This wasn't a problem for me as I was really only after a central place to crash for the night; the lack of any sort of desk space could be a problem if you intend to get any work done, though.
The staff were lovely; very friendly, helpful and attentive.
It's very centrally located but, for all that, manages to be really peaceful and I got a great night's sleep - much better than I often do in London hotels. It manages this by being in what's described as 'a cul-de-sac'; in effect, it's round the back of the shops. Again, not a problem for me (and not something the hotel can do anything about!) but it's worth being aware of if you're planning a trip where you want the sort of atmosphere of being able to look out of the window and gaze across the London skyline - your view here is more of some wheelie bins and a large office window.
I got the room as a lastminute 'secret' hotel which made it reasonable; I'd absolutely be prepared to stay here again, but probably not if I were paying rack rate.
