I was upgraded to the Spa Suite with my SPG Platinum status, this room had the nicest bathroom of any hotel I've been to, so far. It's a weird layout, when you walk into the room, you're in the bathroom, which is huge. Then you continue on to the bedroom. Luckily it's a huge bathroom but the shower and toilet... More

If you plan to party all night on a weekend, this is the place to stay. If not, stay at another hotel. Rooms are clean, concierge helpful, best croissants at spice restaurant and big Eastern European bouncers to make you feel safe while waiting for my ride!

The hotel is in a great location, very central and in the middle of the hustling and bustling of London. Not the ideal place if you’re looking for a quiet and quaint place but it is if you look for a very cool décor and ambience. It’s not cheap but the rooms are fairly spacious and you pay for the...

Repeat guest - Stayed here for three nights this week - should have left after one. Rooms are dark confused and poorly planned. Initially this was interesting - but the giant sink in the middle of the room is now merely annoying and cluttered. Door staff are arrogant and not interested in helping guests. This is a nightclub first, bar... More

I stay here several times per year. People either love it or hate it, I happen to like it. Sure, the decor and architecture my not match it's central london surroundings, but the service is great and the rooms are good. I get my SPG platinum upgrades about 75% of the time here. The service here is prompt, yet unobtrusive.... More

Right on the doorstep of Chinatown makes this hotel so much fun. Fantastic young staff. Groovy rooms. Our room on the 1st floor was so quiet. The only downfall was the very very dimly light passageways. Very trendy hotel which might not suit the older traveller. I personally loved the vanity basin separate from the shower and it also had... More
