This hotel was pretty confusing to find when walking from the Tube station, as the road in which it's located is full of many hotels and B&Bs. When we arrived, we were asked to wait as it was slightly earlier than the check-in time of 2pm. This was okay as we were not charged extra for early check-in. Also, they have delicious dark chocolate on the front desk...
The room itself was much smaller than the website photos imply (virtually no space to walk around the bed), but still nicely furnished. Very modern and clean. The coffee was very nice. Nearly had an accident when trying to step out of the shower which is located over the bath, as the bath is quite high and it is very easy to fall when trying to climb out - no handrails to hold onto; possibly a lawsuit waiting to happen. There was also no space whatsoever around the bathroom basin, so we had to leave toothbrushes on the shelf above the toilet. The loo paper is also in a very non-ergonomically effective location.
Anyway, we stayed here because we attended an event at Hyde Park, so it was really convenient. Also walked past a Waitrose on the way back, which stayed open quite late. Don't know whether we would stay here again, though.
