A contemporary and fairly small hotel on a very pleasant street, this seems to have been recently refurbished and certainly scores top marks for location. There are plenty of restaurants near by, although many are of a similar level, and quite a few Italian. Choice is perhaps a little limited if you want something more casual, or just a drink.
Reception staff were all helpful and friendly. Breakfast staff were a little less on the ball, with some really not with it at all. Note also that a 18% service charge for your "free" breakfast will appear on your bill. OK, so it's not a massive amount, but it's not free is it?
On the downside, our room was allegedly a queen, but if this was the case I'd hate to have seen a standard. It was also a little noisy from the street outside with just single glazing. Although it's not a main road, it's still busy enough and by the time the street cleaner has woken you up at 02:00, the recycling guys at 03:00 and the rubbish collectors at 04:00 you start to get a bit fed up. There were no tea/coffee facilities in the room, or a safe although there was free wi-fi as well as a PC you could use in the guest's lounge. The lounge was right outside our room so I was concerned about potential noise from that, but in the event I didn't see anyone using it.
Prices also seemed a little steep, although I dare say that's par for the course in these parts.
