Cozy and small hotel, good location for my needs regarding transport. A bit rustic food, but descent quality. The rooms are clean and above average for similar price ranges.Please note! The walls are paper thin, and some people could be very affected by this.

Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
