Having seen the other reviews it is hard to criticise them BUT there are some pros as well as cons. As for cons. Correct, the reception staff (in general) are surly (albeit 1 exception), countless staircases had to be clambered, rooms were minute and not particularly clean and the general feeling was "not good". In short, the rooms are horrible....
However we stayed 1 night only (about the best period) as we were passing through. The Pros are many as it is in a lively area. Shops, bars, transport are in abundance. Easy to get into other parts of the city and whilst not the most secure area in town we had no problems.
Oddly enough the breakfast was quite acceptable and well presented. The downside is the miserable staff and getting a waitress who can speak English and ask how you want you eggs cooked. Not always an option.
If I had to stay 1 night in London again in this area I would, surprisingly, stay at this joint. It really is in a good location...
