Booked a single room, #12, with 54 Boutique from the Internet for 7 days. It is no surprise that the room sizes in Europe are very different compared to the USA, however, this hotel has a 4 star rating and it was a huge surprise to find the room was with limited outlets for personal use of electrical appliances. The bathroom was without an outlet (shaving apparatus only, yes-I am a female), and the only outlets serving the room were on the side of the bed, nightstand and small desk area without a mirror. It was very inconvenient for hair appliances, blowing drying, etc. The bathroom had a small area over the toilet for personal items and an overhead radiator for heat that hung the bath towel. The room was very warm, the carpet somewhat worn and spotty. The bed is a single, small and takes up most of the space in the room. There is no seating area. TV watching is from the bed. Clothing area were cubicles (like those for a Kindergarten classroom), small and the side with hangers for a few items like sweater and coat. Coffee, tea and water available. Location is good. Restaurants and tube close by.
This was supposedly a 4 star hotel. The cost of the hotel was 983 pounds and converts to $1,598.00 US dollars!!
I suggest that traveling to the UK you book with an USA travel agent and insure the cost of the stay in US dollars. The amenities of this hotel do not qualify for a 4 star hotel. The hotel offered me free breakfast for the remainder of my trip (2 days) for my dissatisfaction, but I was only able to take advantage of the offer for 1 day as I was leaving the following day at a time before breakfast started. They did remove a day's amount of 9.00 pounds previously paid for. Room #12 is a not a room to come back to after a long day of touring and relax. Simply put, it is a very basic small room with inconvenient outlets, and logistically the room lacks some important details.
