I'm a budget traveler - I never expect the Ritz accommodations but I was not happy with this property.
But, really, to be frank, you must not stay here if you are trying to get a good night's sleep at night. The walls are so thin and the travelers on my floor were extremely loud. It also didn't help that the mattress springs felt so hard and it was extremely difficult to sleep. The hotel needs to do a better job at telling people to behave cordially at check-in, considering that the walls are so thin and the hallways so narrow. This all made for a miserable stay, and I was unable to get a full night's sleep when I was there. The room was also very hot.
The rooms were very small even by London standards-but this was tolerable.
The Wi-fi was not working when I was there, at all, I kept getting an error message when trying to connect.
The one small bright spot was the breakfast room. I had the continental meal plan and the food was really quite good. It was beyond the usual cereal and breads and there was a variety to choose from and the breakfast hours were decent.
But because sleep and basic comfortability should be #1 for every traveller, this hotel is Not recommended.
