Anyone who has been to London lately can appreciate how expensive it is. The Euro is now nearly 1 to 1 with the USD. But change a USD $100 to GBP, and you practically get a handful of coins in return. This hotel is a great value, offering free in-room wifi and often free English breakfast depending on the room rate you select. It is on the Picadilly line from Heathrow and, at most is 15 minutes by tube from LHR, including the walk. It has a nice business center, offering FREE internet and printing, again, so rare in London to get anything for free. It has a flight display screen to keep you updated on your flight. The windows do NOT open and are completely sound proof which is a necessity considering huge 777's fly over every 30 seconds. There is a Tesco about 10 minutes away by foot, as well as a nice pub. The hotel itself has a pantry with food stuffs and booze for purchase. There is a laundry center, where you can purchase tolkens at the front desk and tidy up your clothes for your long flight home.
The hotel itself was a bit stuffy and humid for me, but had nice cold in room A/C, if you remember to put your room key in the slot by the door. The TV has a ba-zillion channels with an easy guide. It is very quiet and I rarely saw another human on the floor. They offer free newspapers, that you can read with your free breakfast. Is there a theme here? Lots of free stuff with your room rate in London. Unbelievable!
The little Pub/restaurant in the hotel was nice, affordable, and had a descent selection of food.
If you just have a day, or so in London near LHR and wish easy access to the city or LHR with a GREAT Value for London, I would highly recommend this hotel. It was perfect for my 2 stays.
