Having stayed here on a number of occasions, I am beginning to get a handle on the good and bad rooms - and there are a real mix of the two. This time I was in 491 which is in the basement of the house next door to the main reception building. The room is massive - especially by London standards - with a very big bedroom and separate lounge-type area with a sofa (probably a sofa bed, but I did not investigate). The bed was comfy enough, but the noise from the (quiet) road outside meant that the night was not completely undisturbed. The issue with the room was the bathroom. It was freezing cold (separated from the lounge and with only the smallest of radiators and single glazed windows) and the over bath shower was placed that you would have to be less than four feet tall to be able to stand underneath it. It is an odd experience having to sit in a bath to use the shower! I guess that the design of many of the rooms in this place are directed by the existing architecture, but some more careful planning would have really helped.
