The hotel is located brilliantly, with the Trafalgar Square just around the corner. For those of you who like to walk around a fair bit, this one is close to most of what London has on offer; the Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, The london eye (cross over The Thames from inside the Charing Cross station), The National Gallery, to name just a few.
The restaurant, Balcon, has good food. In the starters try the spicy tomato and egg cocotte, which is excellent. Also, ask for Melany at the restaurant. She's really friendly and will make sure you eat really well. Overall, it's a place that's definitely worth recommending.
Ps: I travelled solo and was interested in the touristy things apart from the work I had to do. Worked very well because I was so close to everything.
