Good response for the problem
We had drain problem at shower booth. We asked them to fix it during we were out for sight-seeing. But they came and fixed immidiately during our breakfast time at the restaurant. We found thier apology letter in the room. It is very good consideration for the guest.

Bad experience during checking in this hotel. Staff at the check in counters were unorganised and unhelpful. Comfortable and quiet rooms. Very convnient location, near to tube stations and the British Museum, walking distance to covent garden and there are restaurant choices nearby.
