I stopped at this hotel for 2 nights whilst working nearby at Olympia.
A 2 night stay for a single room with breakfast cost £330 though a booking website. I thought this was expensive based on the size of the room.
Check-in was quick and easy at the hotel, however they did insist on taking an imprint of my card as well as PIN authorisation.
I had a single room on the 3rd floor. The room was fairly small, with about 12 inches between the end of the bed and the wall, but it was a nice clean room with a small double bed. Perfectly comfortable for one.
The bathroom was clean and tidy with a wealth of complimentary amenities.
On the first night there were 2 complimentary mints on my pillow, along with ear plugs (for outside noise) and a tea/coffee selection. Unfortunately none of the mentioned was replenished on the 2nd night - which is a shame as the price paid should include this.
There was also a small work desk and LCD TV with freeview channels. A/C was also fairly effective.
Room service menu basic and quite expensive, but there are a number of restaurants within a couple of minute walk from the hotel, along with a Sainsburys supermarket.
I only ate breakfast on the 2nd day, as the restaurant doesn't open before 7am and I needed to leave earlier on the first day.
Although it is a buffet breakfast, served in heated containers, I found the food to be luke-warm which was a disappointment. Good selection of food, but would have been 100% better if hot.
Wouldn't necessarily return as I don't think the price paid reflected experience received.
