We were welcomed by Elizabeth at the front desk when we arrived very early in the morning (around 9:30am) and she was very accommodating and we asked if we could check in earlier and she found us a room and we were able to take a quick nap after our long flight from Chicago. It was my husband and my first time in London and we were warned that the hotels were small and although it was, the room was quaint and modern. It has the necessities you need. We were there for two nights.
The hotel is less than two blocks from the center of Piccadilly Circus so you are close to eateries and shopping. We stay on a Friday and Saturday night. We left the hotel around 4am early Sunday morning because our flight was so early and there was quite a bit of commotion and drunks outside coming out of bars and clubs, so I probably wouldn't recommend for families. Our driver said it's always like that on weekends and it's nothing new.
The only other thing I didn't like was the temperature of the shower would come and go. Warm, hot, cold, etc. One night, I felt like I had to rush because the water temperature was so cold and wasn't warming up. Not sure if it's a hotel problem or if it is a London problem.
Overall, this was a nice hotel for the two nights we had in London. It is accessible and staff was friendly. Trafalgar Square is close by. There's a Pret a Manger right next door, as well as another coffee shop accessible through the lobby :)
