Exceptional 10.0
Very pleasant. Great staff. Wonderful location.

great room size
The size of the room was large for the area so that was great! The hotel provides shampoo and conditioner as well. The coffee machine and tea in room was great. The food was not great. The air conditioner leaked water and I had to put a trashcan under to catch. The service forgot to clean my room one day and they are off in evenings so they could not catch up. The hotel cannot order you a taxi even though they confirm they will. shower is great but will not go cool so you must have a very hot shower. Room card key had to be reset daily because it would not work.

The rooms were updated except for my air conditioning unit. I suggest asking for a new room if there is a heat wave (like when I visited). The hotel was very accommodating due to the issue. Cleanliness could have been a bit better (stains on every cloth chair in the room), but overall I would stay here again. It is VERY centrally located and you can walk to the tube or to many of the great spots in London

Great location - small room
We had A/C issues the first two days, but once it was solved, the room became more comfortable. But it was still a bit small, so apparently we misread the pics we saw prior to booking. Some rooms had the breakfast included in the price, but ours didn’t for some reason (and it wasn’t because we paid a fantastically low price for the room either ). However, location was why we picked the hotel and that did pay off, since the hotel is very conveniently located close to the sights we wanted to visit. One other note - the bar is the pub equivalent of your grandmother’s living room. Neutral colors, quiet, one tap, boring news on the TV. One night some moderately noisy young adults came in and were quickly asked to leave. So that was that. But like I said, overall it was a fine hotel for what we wanted the place for.

Hotel facility need to be updated
The hotel location is good. However, the hotel facility all looks old and tried. I booked the hotel for 7days, the first night I found the room (104) I given was without any central AC, and it seems they already knew that and could do nothing that night because they fully booked as I was told, and promised me would give me a new room next day. The guy from the front desk give me a fan Instead. Next day, I was able to get a room with AC unit installed above the door. The AC works, but as I noticed the shelves of the closet were covered with dusty and it hadn’t been wiped for a quite long time. They didn’t change our sheet for once during our stay. Also, the last night, I was found the shower faucet was malfunction and unable to adjust water temperature which is extremely hot. Called the front desk again at 10pm and finally got the issue solved around 11pm which made me extremely tried and frustrated since we had a early flight to catch on next morning! This hotel really not worth the money ($250/per day) I paid for.
