“Comfy Bed”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

I stayed here as a reward night in December and ended up with a great sized curved corner room. Although our room wasn't ready when we arrived, it was sorted within 30 minutes - enough time for a Starbucks coffee over the road. The room was spotlessly clean with a fantastic bathroom and very comfy bed. I think it would be a great place to stay location-wise if you were planning on visiting London for New Years Eve as it's very close to the river and fireworks viewing areas. I imagine it would probably get incredibly busy around there though!

Our first visit to London. Got on the train from Gatwick that delivered us directly to Blackfriars Station. What luck! The staff greeted us warmly and gave us an upgrade on our room. It was quiet, clean, comfortable bed, and amenities that made our visit pleasant. Great to have the tube station right across the street. Short walk to St. Paul's, Millennial Bridge, Tate Modern, Globe Theater. Highly recommended!

Nice big hotel, swish reception, big airy, bright, great area.. Great restaurants within, very clean, toiletries lovely, esp the sleep kit you get in your room from The Works range.

Hop and a skip from tube, thoroughly enjoyed the stay..

Just be quick with the lift, gives very little time to get in, else it will close and be gone....

I recently stayed at a "2 Double Beds Deluxe Room". Even when at first I felt a bit dissapointed, as its description at their website made me think in larger areas, this corner room was very well-appointed, nicely decorated and felt cozy. The beds were ultra comfortable; a fresh fruit dish and an array of chocolates -sent by management- a nice and appreciated gesture. It's a mere hundred meters from Blackfriars Tube Station (and another hundred from London Blackfriars Railway Station, handy if flying through Gatwick), so it's basically close to everywhere.
I didn't go for their breakfast, as I found it pricey and there are plenty of choices around (Costa, Nero, Starbucks); there's also a Tesco Express just around the corner.
All in all, a rewarding experience; if the price is right, this will definitely be my choice in the future.

We arrived at about 9 AM straight from Gatwick after a trans Atlantic flight. The hotel let us check in right away at no extra cost. What a great way for a tired traveller to start a week in England. The room was was comfy, attractive and very quiet. We had booked a higher priced room so a breakfast buffet was included which was served right down the hall on the sixth floor Also complementary beer and wine were offered there in the evening. The staff was friendly and the location of the hotel is very good--just a block from the Thames across from Blackfriers stattion.

Room Tip: Get a room on the concierge level for free breakfast.

I stayed here for four nights in April 2012. I'd ready other entries about how comfortable the beds are....it's all true! The most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in. Loved the addition of the aromatherapy sleeping aid.
Location was perfect for me. Right in the heart of the "city". It took me three minutes to walk to work. Close to underground station...Blackfriars. Walking distance to St Pauls, Millenium Bridge, Fleet Street, Hatton Garden jewellery quarter, London Silver Vaults, Old Bailey. I visited all of the above on foot in the rain in the three hours free time I had.

I dined in the Lobby cafe, room service and breakfast buffet. All good. Best and cheapest breakfast was in the lobby, porridge, toast and tea for about three pounds.

Stayed for 1 night going out for a Consert at Ronnie Scotts. The Service was incredible and great value for money. I pre-paid for an Double bed Deluxe Room. The Bed was quite small but the room was nice and with all the amenities i needed. Paid about 80 £ pr. person which included a Priority Club membership( i didnt even realise that) This ment we could have a late checkout at no cost. And they even managed to check us in at 11 pm 4 hours before the normal check inn. When we checked out wee were given Free NEwspaper to read on our way to heathrow and the Consierge carried all our luggage to the cab. All we needed to do was sit back relax and let they take care of eeverything. Its the best stay i've ever had for that price :-) We'll definetly be back soon.
