I chose a five star hotel as there are so many poor hotels in London and I'm glad I did. The hotel is lovely, lots of staff on hand and an air of sophistication when you walk through the door.
The rooms were nice and very clean. The beds are zip and link so there's very little difference between a double and a twin. The bathroom, although small had everything you need, including a powerful shower and a heated mirror so it doesn't must up.
The tea and coffee provided in the room was 2 star - Nescafé instant and UHT milk. It would have been nice to have fresh milk and cafeexpress filter bag coffee in a 5 star hotel!
The rooms were refurbished 7 years ago but you wouldn't know it, except for the dated bang & olufson tv.
There's no guest information in the rooms so you have to call the concierge or reception desk if you want to know what time breakfast is served or check out time.
There's something for everyone at breakfast, pastries, cold meats and cheeses, full English. The only thing that let it down was stewed coffee and cold toast.
Overall a lovely hotel stay and worth the money.
