Some of the reviews worried me, but my budget was limited and no other option. I needed a place to stay for 1 night during the tube strike. I was in London for work. The location is good. I had a 5th floor room, away from the lift facing the back of the building and for London, it was relatively quiet (you can hear doors elsewhere shutting). I found it better than a lot of those anonymous huge mid-range London hotels. Room was small (2 single beds but that was ok for me), but that's London for you. It was clean, good shower, well equipped with basics, free wifi, laminate floor (so no icky old carpet) and decent breakfast. Window opened and the aircon unit worked so not stuffy. Not necessarily the place for a romantic weekend, but I would use it again.
