We stayed here for a few nights when visiting London. It's just a few blocks from a tube station, so it's easy to get around London and still not pay and arm and a leg for accommodations!
The theme at this hotel seems to be colors. There are colors everywhere: colored lights in the hallways, in the elevators, in the rooms. I found the hallways to be a bit dark, which might end up looking somewhat dated in a few years, but it's good for now. The rooms themselves are very comfortable - nothing particularly fancy, but everything clean and new. These are little signs everywhere, which are all quite funny but also informative, so it's a good touch. You can get a free ,quick breakfast delivered each morning (juice, yogurt, banana) which is perfect for those on a budget (as are the rates here!)
The hotel is close to a lot of great restaurants like Jamie Oliver's fifteen, St. John (amazing bacon sandwich!) and Great Eastern Dining room. The nieghborhood seems to be gentrifying from being a bit dodgy in the past, but we felt safe walking around at night.
One strange thing for me was that we arrived back at the hotel after dinner one evening to find a bouncer at the door and lots of thumping music coming from inside - apparently this is a happening place on the weekend, but we just told them we were staying at the hotel and didn't have any problem getting in.
Kudos to the front desk staff who helped us race to the airport at the last minute (I will not disclose how much we paid for a cab!!) after learning that our flight had been rescheduled to earlier than expected.
