Had a standard twin room for 2 nights in December and was impressed. I've stayed in many London 4 star hotels over the last few years and have to say that this was good value. The location is great with the tube station round the corner and buses stopping at the front of the hotel. The room we had was spacious by London standards, clean with nice decor and very quiet (facing the back of the hotel). Bathroom was also roomy, stylish and spotlessly clean with nice toiletries. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly and went out of their way to help us with a couple of issues.
There were only some minor niggles. We stayed there during really cold weather and the room windows were not double glazed despite an apparently expensive renovation programme. One of the staff told me that the suites and a few top rooms have had windows replaced with double glazing but most rooms still have the old windows. This is maybe a more important consideration in the middle of winter and where street noise intrudes. The air conditioning/heating seems to work well however and the staff even offered to put a portable heater in the room, though it wasn't necessary.
The other issue is that prices for snacks and tea seem exorbitant even for London. £10+ for a sandwich is really pushing it.
But these were only very small problems in an otherwise excellent hotel. I would definitely stay here again.
