at first I was nervous, a friend recommended it, but the website looks dowdy and the photos make it seem a bit less than grand. While it is less than grand- it is a wonderfully cozy hotel. The concierge - the cute blonde one anyway, seemed to know less about London than I did, but he would always have an answer to any question I put to him. The rooms aren't large, but find one in London that is as affordable that is! We had a wonderful time at this quiet and dignified gem of a hotel.
The best way there from Heathrow is to take the Heathrow Express to Paddington and then just get a cab. It costs a bit more, but it was such smooth sailing, I would do it again in a minute!
It has a very nice little bar, not super fancy but congenial, we met several nice travellers, an Irishman and a Scot- very smart savy visitors to London. Also a good choice for student and groups.
