Stayed for one night (25th Jan 2013) as a couple in an M room. I had booked this hotel due to all the nice design bits about it and wanted to impress the girlfriend with somewhere with a wow factor.
This would have been off to a good start but the area surrounding the hotel is a complete hole (think the brixton of paris!) the area is like a crap part of london, with lots of awful stores, dirty butchers and dodgy people. It does not feel like a romantic start to any break! (My partner and I are both police officers and both felt it best to power walk in the area after dark to avoid getting mugged!)
Anyway... The hotel itself is off of the dirty horrible street and off a nicer (just!) side street. Upon arrival there was a mini protest going on outside the entrance, where we had to walk past a man with a megaphone.
Check in was quick, friendly and simple. The male receptionist was pleasant and helpful and allowed us to check in 3 hours early without fuss or charge.
We were taken to our room (310) which was an "m room".
It was nice, an ok size and warm enough. The bed was nice, the bath was good the design was modern and quirky (but not classy or particually well kept).
This hotel has seen better days, it was deserted and felt like something was missing. It clearly thought that it was above itself and was subject to cut backs. Eg. The fingerprint door entry was a pain, it was a cheap system that could be a nuisance and was more vanity then useful. Te mini bar was stocked but was a joke. The toiletries were rubbish and the safe did not work. The lights had no logic to them and could not be fully turned off from in the bed.
The tv picture was fuzzy. The room had a ps3... But no controllers (the receptionist said other guests had taken them)
Everything above led to an ok stay, but the one major issue is the paper thin walls in the room. Upon arrival we could hear someone "hammering" in the next room. Upon listening closer, we could hear matress squeaking and realised that the hammering sound was people having sex in the next room. It was ok though, as the noise was drowned out by the protest outside as the windows also let all the sound in.
It was not only knocking you could hear... At three am we were also woken up by our neighbour, or more precicely, the woman he was making moan and shout as they had aex again. Not the best way to be woken up (and totally avoidable) with thicker walls.
To sum up... It was ok, the location is crap, the rooms are noisy, it was far away from everything and was scary to walk outside after dark.
Stay somewhere better, a chain hotel in a better location would be a much, much better choice for the same price range.
