I found this hotel by accident in an area of London that I frequently stay at with work. The hotel is in a very convenient position as it's easily within distance of various tube stations and also a lot of London's more famous attractions such as Tower Bridge and the Tower of London.
The design and decor of the hotel is innovative and it's one of those places where you notice something new every time you look up, down etc.
The staff at check in and check out very friendly, professional, approachable and knowledgeable and also very eager to help.
The rooms were spotless, again with innovative design ideas inside which will feed the curious to see exactly how they've integrated every day items in such a way that it takes a bit of time to work out what they were in the first place.
If there was one thing I would note is that the bed was very comfy and would have led to a great night sleep and impeccable review however I was woken frequently by the sound of the toilet flushing from every room above and around me. I have since spoken about this to colleagues whom have stayed here and been told that you can pay extra for a sound proof room. I can't verify that this is the case as I booked through a third party site though I'm sure if you spoke to the hotel direct they would let you know if this is the case.
All in all I would by ear plugs as this is the only thing that could fault a great place to stay in central London!
