Myself and a friend stayed at the hotel for a couple of nights at the start of august. Unfortunately when we arrived we were not greeted with much welcome, instead the woman who checked us in was rude, did not tell us much about the hotel and just ignored us and talked to her colleague for a good few minutes. The room itself was nice however the television did not work as we could not get any channels. During the time we were in London it was a very hot weekend there was no aircon in the room, and the windows would not open very much so we were hot in the room, which led to a bad nights sleep. To fix this we thought we would make a cool drink. But the ice machine on our floor was broken and when we told the staff at reception they did nothing to fix the the machine. The swimming pool was nice however the showers were broken and the steam room wasn't working. The hotel was situated around 15 minute walk away from a tube stop which was very convienient, and the breakfast was probably the best part about the hotel. I would say if you go in winter then it would be an okay hotel to go to as long as you don't get the rude woman who served us at reception.
