I stayed here for 5 nights with 5 friends across 3 rooms. 4 of my friends were able to book twin rooms, however we had to share a standard room with a double bed. The room was horrendously small and there are no shelves, no hooks and no other forms of storage. You literally get a bed in a box. The gap around the bed was so thin we found ourselves climbing across the bed to get the the other side instead of trying to shuffle round. As we had no form of storage, we literally had to live out of our suitcases. I don't think it would be so difficult for the hotel to put a cheap shelf in or a rail?! The bathroom was also extremely tiny. You could quite easily have sat on the toilet, brushed your teeth and washed your feet in the shower all at the same time! Our room description said it had a window but I would hardly call it that. It was barely a metre wide and provided no light to the room. Overall the room was clean, however it was slightly irritating that if we wanted room service it would have cost £10 per day! The staff are very polite and helpful but the hotel is just not great. Our friends who had twin rooms had much more room, a bigger bathroom and a window that filled a whole wall. They also had a rail across the front of the window (for safety reasons) but they were able to actually unpack their cases and drape their clothes at least. I feel angry at the quality of their room in comparison to our own as we all paid exactly the same price. On top of this, the lifts were broken 3 out of the 5 days we stayed which made getting our luggage to our rooms an extra hassle. If you are just passing through London and only staying one night then this hotel is perfect, any longer is highly unpleasant.
