Margaret from United States
Family with teens
Stayed 5 nights in August 2015
Great location for the cooler months”
This is a nice boutique hotel. The rooms are more like 2 - 3 stars, but the location is fantastic. The only major down side is that there is no air-conditioning, so being their in August was very hot. They did give me a fan and we could open the windows a slight bit, but with no cross-breeze, it was pretty hot. I'd definitely stay here again, but only in the winter, fall, or early spring!

Hotel OK, good location but overpriced”
Location, location and location
Stayed only one night. Staff were helpful and the location was perfect for me. I know London well and this is why I chose it. I understand that London is expensive but I really felt that 144 GBP / approx 200 USD was really overpriced as they didn't even throw in breakfast for this price. A cup of coffee and a few slices of bread and jam would not have broken the bank. The room was OK but small. Was a twin but the beds were together like a double and it could do with being freshened up a bit. Nothing wrong with it really and would stay again if I could get it for a better price, but 200 USD a night without breakfast was just overpriced in my opinion.

Less than comfortable”
Centrally located; close to the Main attractions and shopping areas; easy access to tube to Heathrow Airport
The room is small and run down. Bathroom requires refurbishing. The bed was not comfortable and the pillows have seen better times.

Reasonable hotel for a reasonable price”
Extremely helpful and pleasant staff. Excellent location . Clean comfortable rooms
It was a pleasant stay . The deluxe double room, though not large was fine. The single room was a refurbished too with ensure shower room. The room was very small but clean and pleasant. The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. A decent hotel for a decent price I would say. Should I need to be in the same area I would have no problem with staying there again.
