I stayed here for 2 nights over the weekend. The hotel is well located, just 2 minutes from the tube and easy to find. I had requested a high floor (I realise requests are not guaranteed) and I was allocated a room on the first! The room was small as expected but fine for my needs, and was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately I didn´t get much sleep as I was near the lift which in itself isn´t a problem, but inconsiderate guests returning to their rooms through the night were a problem. Not the hotels fault at all and they moved me the next day to the 5th which was fine.
Had a couple of drinks in the bar and that was a nice place.
Had breakfast which was superb. Excellent buffet spread and food hot. If you do not have breakfast included in your rate, make sure you get tickets at reception and this will be 12.00 GBP. If you walk 15 metres to the restaurant and book there, it costs 3.00 GBP extra - work that one out!
On the morning of check out I had a slight problem with being woken up by housekeeping at 08.20 but that was dealt with by reception and duty manager. These things happen.
I must say I don´t think I have ever stayed in a hotel where the staff are so friendly and helpful. The reception, concierge, doorman, restaurant staff etc were all excellent and really made you feel welcome.
I would stay here again and would recommend to to others.
