I stayed at room no. 910 for a month. Superb room, luxuriously spacious, spotlessly clean and very silent for a comfortable night sleep on a fluffy bed replete with pillows galore. The bathroom is very nicely done too and the shower panel was the best part that came with three options of rain shower, hand shower and two separate jets; all can be obtained at one go if you wish. Totally loved it. There was a bath tub too which I did not use being alone.
The breakfast if included is fine (like company paid it for me) but I would suggest do not opt for it since it is very expensive at 15 or 20 Pound for continental or English breakfast respectively. You can get similar quality breakfast at weather spoon, opposite to the hotel at 6 pound (albeit not buffet). The buffet breakfast at the hotel is good though with a decent spread.
Location wise the hotel is well placed 3-5 mins away from tower gateway dlr and tower hill underground stations. It is also at a walking distance from aldgate and bricklane ( where you get many Bangladeshi joints, if you are looking for them. But not good mostly).
The reason for one star less than 5 is the terrible wifi connection in my room. There was hardly any connection and mostly intermittent, which had to be obtained walking around in the room to catch the signal. They should seriously do something about it, to make themselves at par with 5 stars, which it is in all aspects from pool to room to breakfast and that too at a pretty competitive price in London.
