When travelling to Europe I rarely stay in a Hotel Chain, more preferably a bed and breakfast or farm stay. We had just two nights in London, with very short notice, and were so pleased with this hotel. It was new and clean, very comfortable beds and pillows, and a great price for London. It was outside the central tourist zone, but we were willing to use public transportation to save $100 per night in lodging. The staff was incredibly helpful, unlike most hotel staffs that are totally indifferent. If you are needing travel help, late in the evening is preferable to early morning when everyone is checking out. As others have mentioned bus 15 stops a very short distance from the hotel. We also walked about 20-25 minutes to the Tower of London. The neighborhood is a little sketchy, but we avoided after dark. There are also 3 Tube stations close by, however, we did not use them.
