Reviews for this hotel seem to depend on the room you get, and especially the en suites, which seem to vary greatly, so perhaps it's a bit pot luck. I requested an upstairs room on booking, after reading consistently poor reviews for the basement, and this was arranged. We were on the 1st floor, and the room was fine, but rough round the edges - felt a bit like student halls or a hostel: peeling paint, lights falling off the walls, temperamental toilet flush, creaky floors. They've given it a modern London theme, but cut corners and everything's a bit cheap. Bathroom was like a cupboard, but did have a separate shower rather than a wet-room like some of the rooms do.
Despite guests being fairly quiet, the hotel is very noisy because there are no carpets and thin walls. We could hear people just talking in the room opposite ours across the corridor.
They do have a luggage store room if you need it, though guests access it themselves so it's not too secure. (I arrived before check in, and they gave me the key without even asking my name.) We didn't stay for breakfast.
We paid £60 for our night here, and booked it because it was the cheapest central hotel we found and we just needed a bed for a night, nothing special. If you have the right expectations then this place is just fine (especially if you take ear plugs). However it does make me question whether next time we should pay a bit less for an actual hostel, or more for an actual hotel in order to get a better sleep.
