Stayed here for 3 nights in October 2013. Excellent location - close to public transport. Hotel decor and finish is to a high standard. Our room was on the 5th floor at the back but had a good view of The Gherkin. The 4 poster bed was very comfy and whole room was decorated in a nice style and to a high quality. Excellent amenities - fridge,mini bar and nespresso machine. Only downside was that we felt breakfast wasn't value for money although everything we had was tasty. Staff were very friendly and even put a birthday cake in our room on arrival (it was my partners birthday). Would definitely recommend. Would give it 4.5 if I could.
