I stayed here for two nights on business in February 2013. The hotel itself is clean enough, but the 4-star rating seems a tad generous. I stayed in a room below street level, opening onto the street. The windows are only single-glazed and so it was very noisy. I didn't realise that there are several hostels opposite the hotel too, so being on the sub-ground floor, with the single-glazed windows meant that it was very noisy at times and difficult to sleep. The rooms were a very good size, but the shower room was very poorly laid out - the toilet was right up against the wall on one side, which made sitting on it very unpleasant. Equally, the toilet-roll holder was behind a corner wall, about 6 inches off the ground - again, a bizarre and inconvenient place to have it. The shower soap holder was really loose. The grand living room is very spectacular, but the bar is in a separate room, so if you want to have a drink in the hotel's splendid room, you have to carry them through from a separate room. Overall, this was clean, convenient and near Queensway tube, so very convenient for work, but I wouldn't stay again if I could choose a different location.
