London Stay
The TV never worked since day one, even two people were trying to fix it. The nite stand was not working when I got in the room the first day. The towel set was always missing one or two towels. The information from the staff was conflicting. One told me the taxi fee was flat rate 45 pounds to airport. When the time I asked them to call to book the taxi, another staff told me was 50 pounds and they accepted credit card. When the time I paid, the taxi driver refused to accept card and said the fee is 60 pounds. The staff should get their information straighten out and recommend a better and honest taxi company to service there. The room was really small when comparing it with other hotels within the same grade.

Disappointing stay
Stayed here a few years ago which is why we booked it again. This time was very disappointing. The hotel was refurbished since our last visit. The hallways were dim and so narrow that you could stand in the middle of the hall and touch the walls on either side with your elbows. The room and bathroom were extremely small. The key card had to be reactivated almost every time we used it. After a day of sightseeing we were unable to relax and watch TV because it was not working. The only good thing is the location, it's a short walk from the Gloucester tube station. Would not book again.
