Five minutes walk to the Tube and the 47 bus just outside the door gives location a +++. Several shops in the area including a Sainsbury and many small restaurants is also very positive.
The hotel has many small winding staircases and narrow corridors. The elevator doesn't reach the 5th floor. A fire would be devastating ! The room was small with very little floorspace but had what you need and with good quality. Nice bathroom, mine had a big crack in the washbasin. No bathtub but a nice shower with lots of hot water with good pressure ( 5th floor).
In the receptionarea there is a small lounge with a bar for snacks and drinks.
A full English breakfast was served in the basement. Good supply of whatever you might need.
Check-out is at 11 am. This is early. When asked if a late check-out was possible the Spanish guy at reception said OK but it costs 25£ per hour !! Most hotels would grant you at least an hour, unless they are very tight with bookings and clean-ups.
