I had read fairly good reviews on this hotel. To me, however, it was disappointing. I will not stay in this hotel anymore unless I really have to. The room was tiny. I don't mind small, but any smaller than this and you'd have to jump from the door onto the bed with no moving space. The mattress was too soft, which resulted in back ache for me and my partner. The floor was dirty. Walking barefoot from bathroom into bedroom was not advisable. The safe in the room was locked, so could not be used.
There was no shampoo or soap in the shower and no hair dryer. I'm quite small, I am well aware of that, but I have never had the experience of not being able to look in the mirror at all because it was too high.
You had to pay to leave your luggage in the hotel after checking out.
For me, this hotel was too expensive for what they provided and therefore a disappointment. i have stayed in better hotels for a far better price in London, in the same area.
