I stayed here at the end of last year, I was volunteering for Crisis at Christmas at a college up the road and needed a base.
Upon checking in I was met with reception ,maybe my *huge* afro took them aback, it happens at times;-) but after I began to speak about my new work out vibes and my volunteering and what not the girls on front desk were cool enough.
I was given a room on the second floor, if I am honest the bathroom was a little small in comparison to some other hotel bathrooms I have frequented however it was modern and extremely clean, spotless clean which is of course very good.
The actual room was a double, a decent size with mood lightening on either side of the bed, speaking of the bed.... truly something special.
Soft without being to soft, we all have our preferences, for me it was perfect.
I only needed the hotel room for somewhere to sleep as I was out in the day, I booked for four days.
I had to try out the gym, it is basement level, small with one of everything, but suitable for an intense hour of cardio, which is exactly what I enjoyed.
One of my highlights was a lovely man who works at this hotel who without any prompting from me opened up the gym door and handed me a towel.. well I was going for it on the treadmill;-)
He asked if I needed anything else which was thoughtful.
Room service was prompt, I ordered a burger with salad, a true meaty burger, not like the ones at a very well known fast food chain, hey I did use the gym while there;-)
The surrounding area is fine, due to it being xmas most of the food shops were closed, but there were a couple of local places open which I visited throughout my time.
On my last night I ended up listening to a cool traveller guy who was staying elsewhere beat-boxing(free style rapping) at the bus stop, being a curious type I stopped to listen, cue two hours later I was so sleepy had to bid him well and leave him, what a charming and funny man.
This is what I like about London you can end up swapping stories with an utter stranger with no agenda just to experience different folks from all walks of life.
Upon leaving Mr Beatbox I found the hotel doors firmly closed, it was early hours of the morning, however upon me showing my swipe card for my room I was invited in, phew.
Checking in was quick and easy as was checking out.
A hotel that is immaculate, incredibly clean and has a warm cosy feeling to it, and smiling staff, I would not hesitate to stay here again or to recommend.
