We arrived at this hotel around 13:15 and were told at the reception desk that check-in time was 14:00 so we'd have to wait until then.
In the meantime a huge crowd of travel-tired tourists had gathered for checking in and were watched mockingly by the inactive staff of the reception desk.
When the check-in finally started each guest had to fill out a form which further extended the delay. The rooms we were assigned were very small, basic and noisy but clean.
At breakfast we again were confronted with a huge waiting crowd and were forwarded to another wing of the hotel where we queued up in another row and couldn't find a vacant table.
When we finally found a spot the hotel's definition of continental breakfast proved to be their own intrepetation: buns resembled floppy tennis balls, jelly seemed to come from a chemical plant.
All in all: don't spoil your London trip by bookin this hotel!
