My boyfriend bought me a 2 night/3 day trip to London for Christmas and we decided to go here because it seemed to be close to Hyde Park (a place I really wanted to visit). We travelled by National Express and got dropped off in London Victoria bus station, which is about a 45 minute walk to the hotel if you have some sense of direction where you are going, but that didn't bother us because we enjoyed the walk up there.
When we arrived the staff were pleasant and helpful, we were approached with a smile which was a very welcoming start. We took the elevator up to our room, which was our only downfall about the whole trip as my boyfriend had paid for a deluxe room, but we only got a double which was a lot smaller but I did find it very cosy. My boyfriend confronted the staff about this however there were no deluxe rooms left, which was disappointing.
The location is good, but obviously you do have to walk around a lot if you're in London so that didn't bother us. There was an Underground train station just around the corner a little further down the street and we used this to get to The London Dungeons and Madame Tussards. There are also several restaurants for you to eat at (we ate at an Italian place called Zonzos) so there is plenty of choice.
The beds were very comfy and even though the bathroom was a little small, it didn't bother us because we had enough room to have a shower. The room came with a hairdryer, kettle, tea and coffee, and some hangers in the wardrobe. An incident that did happen though was when we first got to our room, my partner was changing into a different set of clothes and the maid walked into our room without knocking, luckily he had just finished getting changed but I did have a small problem with that.
Overall the hotel is lovely and clean and I would definitely recommend staying here.
