“Sleep Easy.”
Reviewed 17 December 2012 via mobile

We stayed here as part of a birthday present earlier in the year.

As it was already paid for, I can't really comment on value for money. However, we were charged £5 on our credit card and were never offered an explanation.

The staff were friendly enough and the room was spotless with all mod-cons. The bath was more than big enough for two (very important, of course) and the fact it is pretty much slap bang in middle of London it was very quiet and we both had a great nights sleep. The bed was extremely comfortable.

Stayed here for one night and was impressed. On arrival the staff were all very helpful and friendly. Our room wasn't available as we arrived early however the hotel sent us a text once it was ready. Good location for The Tower of London and Tower Bridge. Tube station very nearby. We were upgraded to a deluxe room which was lovely. Very comfortable bed and nice lounge area with magazines, tv, etc. would recommend this hotel although don't bother with the breakfast-it cost us £32 for two and was not worth the money. There are plenty of places to eat nearby so would recommend doing that. Overall though, we enjoyed our stay. Especially liked the lovely big dressing gowns and products in the bathroom!

we stayed at the hotel for 1 night on December the 7th,
we were a little bit early about 12 o clock but the room was already avaible that was great because we had to walk from the other side from london and we had a long bus drive from the netherlands (12 hours).
when we got in our room (301) we were suprised it was beautiful. everything clean, beautiful and comfored bed. a big shower and the cutes duck in the bathroom haha.
we decided to put our stuff there and went to the city. when we asked wich bus we needed to go to oxford street the staff helped us very well.
in the night we've slept perfect and the hot choco and thee was very good to.
the only disapointing was the view because it was the back of another building but we didn't mind about that because we're only there to sleep 1 night.
the next morning we went to breakfast wat was delicious. we may choose on the buffet because that was in our ticket. (sorry for the bad english)
you could choose between flakes, croissant, bread , cheese, meat and juices.
after that we had to check-out the lady after the desk was very nice and it was quickle done.
in one word the hotel is perfect and certainly recommended.

Stayed for one night only on a Buisness trip , top service from arrival to leaving. The room was upgraded and offered much more than was expected, it was very large with a lovely balcony looking out onto a courtyard. The hotel had very good facilities throughout and nothing was too much trouble. Had an excellent meal in the resturant and a extensive choice at breakfast, beyond the usual hotplate , all freshly cooked. Everything was spotless and clean, and so nice to have evrything possible you could need. Would recommend the very comfortable bed, pillows etc, for a really good nights sleep. Would definately stay again and recommend for Buisness and pleasure,

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, at the weekend basically because of the lower weekend rates. The hotel is near to Tower Hill underground station and enable us to get around by tube very easily. Room was clean and everything was okay. The service was good and the staff was very helpful. Recommended.

We stayed at this hotel on a Friday and Saturday evening having booked a show on the Friday and an event at Earl’s court on Saturday evening.

The location of the hotel is fantastic near the tower and Tower Bridge and mins walk to the tube.
From the welcome at reception through to waiting staff and housekeeping everyone at this hotel is exceptionally helpful and friendly. Staff chatted and seemed genuinely interested in where you were going and what you wanted to see giving helpful advice on other things to do in the area, mentioning the walks along the Thames etc.

We arrived on Friday evening and had to leave for the theatre at 7 when we booked a table in the restaurant for 6 (opening time) and explained we needed to leave by 7 they offered to open at 5.45 to ensure we had time for dinner.

We had dinner and a bar snack at the hotel and can highly recommend the food which was both delicious and reasonably priced. The burger we had as a snack before going out for the evening was huge and we didn’t need the late evening snack we had envisaged. Continental breakfast was great the lovely fresh bread, proper coffee, orange juice and creamy yoghurt deserve mention.

We had a superior room (upgrade) and for central London this was very spacious with an exceptional bathroom with both a bath and walk in shower, I have had smaller bedrooms when staying in London! The bed was large and comfortable with soft bedding and the whole place was spotless. Our room faced the side of the hotel so no view as such (but who looks out of the window much) this did mean it was very quiet I live in rural Lincolnshire and usually in a city am constantly woken by traffic or people, I didn’t hear a thing!!

The bar/restaurant is bright and modern a little clinical and corridor like for my taste but this was more than offset by the friendly service.
