I was very skeptical at the high ratings & great location. Fortunately it all reached the reviews. Other than the room being smaller than in the pictures, the thought put into everything made a wonderful stay.
Bathroom: heated floor, speakers of what's playing on the TV in the other room, and eye makeup remover (first I've seen. Very helpful) among the usual complimentary items.
Bedroom: thoughtful lighting, many outlets, wonderful wifi (both a room wifi with password and the general wifi).
Hotel: a corner away from a bunch of adorable great breakfast-friendly cafés that feel like an extension of the hotel. Very friendly staff, walking distance from museums and tube station, and generally adorable. Husband was satisfied with gym, which had the necessities.
