On our second return to London, we picked this place as it looked nice, and met our price range. While we were not terribly disappointed with the room, the room was quite small despite managing to fit a double bed inside.
The shower was tiny, and the lighting - particularly in the bathroom - could be better. The lack of space was highlighted by the inability to open one of the dresser drawers due to the TV mounted on the wall, and breakfast was a simple affair - primarily toast, cereal, and hardboiled eggs.
The location cannot be faulted - on two major bus routes and multiple train stations (above/underground) are within easy walking distance. This is also in zone 2 of London's zonal system, so you can save money on transport as well.
For those travelling on a budget, and wanting somewhere to store their bags and sleep with little else, this place is perfect. For those wanting a bit more luxury, this would not be a great place to stay.
Also - the internet is expensive and inconsistent. We tried using it, but gave up after the first couple of nights. As an example, Skype calls last for about 3 minutes before dropping out. The staff weren't the greatest either.
This is a great example of you get what you pay for.
