Great are: the location (closest tube just some minutes of walk away), the staff (very friendly, attentive, professional), the atmosphere of the place in general, the rooms (but you'd expect that for this price category).
The gym is kind of average (i have seen better versions at hotels in a lower category). The "spa" does not really deserve the term "spa" according to my opinion. The sauna and steam bath are really small and in need of renovation. I definitely expected more in this regard.
The breakfast was average (very narrow space, choice could be improved).
Overall impression is still very good - the food (lunch, dinner) at bar and restaurants are tasty and good quality.
