We had stayed there for a total of 9 nights . 5 to 11 November and 17 to 19 November . For our first 7 nights we were given a room on the 6th floor at the south part of the hotel . 2 single beds with worn out bed linen , (bed sheets with holes),an old fashion tv , bathroom with a shower attached on the wall indicating that it was placed there at a later time as an extra accessory , no hair drier (you could borrow one with a 20,00 pounds refundable guarantee) no shampoo and shower gel (you had to ask the cleaning staff for it).
The continental breakfast included in our rate was the worst we had ever had at a hotel of this class . The only fairly eatable food was their muesli if you could endure the cold milk on offer at 08,30 in the morning . The hotel staff mainly comprises of non English employees , where especially at the concierge desk (only male staff there) they were rude and hardly speaking any English . Things were better at the reception desk maybe due to the fact that the clerks were female, where especially on our last 2 nights we were given a much better room at the north part of the hotel which looked more to date than our previous one . Location and easy access to Oxford street as well as a direct line from and to Heathrow airport are among the advantages . Finally , even though there is a huge number of people moving about at the hotel's premises as a result to its size , the room areas are fairly quiet with the exception of the opening and closing doors sound from 7 in the morning when breakfast starts being offered .
